31 Days of Prayer for Operation Christmas Child - Day 12

Today pray for God's hand and wisdom in recruiting volunteers during National Collection Week to become more involved in Operation Christmas Child.

It’s not for the money, it’s not for fame
and it’s not for any personal gain.
It's for love of fellow man,
It’s just to lend a helping hand.
It’s just to give the tithe of self.
That’s something you can’t buy with wealth.
It’s not the medals worn with pride.
It's just for that feeling deep inside.
It’s that reward down in your heart.
It’s the feeling that you’ve been a part
Of helping others far and near,
That makes you a VOLUNTEER.
Connect to Your Calling:
Connect Volunteers serve year-round to expand the Kingdom of God through the ministry of Operation Christmas Child. These dedicated volunteers come together around the country to serve in the specific areas of Prayer Mobilization, Church Relations, Community Relations, Media Relations, and Logistics. Opportunities are available to use your gifts in these areas. To serve as a Connect Volunteer with Operation Christmas Child, click the link and fill out the Year-Round Volunteer Interest Form 

"For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office: So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another. Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us" Romans 12:4-6

Also today pray for Suriname and Trinidad and Tobago. Suriname is on the Northeast coast of South America, between Guyana and French Guiana, north of Brazil. It has 26 people groups with 20 languages. 14% of the population is Evangelical Christian. Trinidad and Tobago are two islands off the coast of Venezuela in South America.  They have 15 people groups with 7 languages.  13% are unreached.  20% of the population is Evangelical Christian.  The nation’s racial diversity could also be considered a racial divide. Inter-ethnic harmony is hindered by racially aligned politics.  Pray that the government may be impartial and fair to all ethnic groups and that the culture of corruption and bribery would be exposed and eliminated. The Church is one of the only structures connected to every community, and therefore has enormous but unrealized potential to bridge the racial divide. Pray that churches would be instruments of reconciliation and demonstrate that all are one in Christ.
Specific requests for Suriname:
1. Pray for unity among the OCC national volunteer members and that they will be able to meet their personal ministry goals for OCC.
2. Pray for wisdom as the team develops their strategic plan.

Specifically for Trinidad and Tobago:
1. Pray against the idol worship in the country. 
2. Pray the people will seek forgiveness from God and heal the land. 
3. Pray for the spiritual growth of the prayer partner.
