They are a small group of agricultural people with low literacy level. Islam is the largest religion with about 91.00% of the total population. There are a few Christians among them and no Christian resources available in their language. They are found in few rural settlements particularly in Mariga Local Government Area near Kontagora, Niger State. Ask the Lord to thrust out workers who will be compelled to nurture a disciple making movement among the Asu people. Pray for Asu families to be drawn by the Holy Spirit to seek forgiveness through Christ alone, and to understand the adequacy of Christ’s work on the cross. Pray for the Holy Spirit to give them understanding and teachable hearts. Pray for the Asu culture to be renewed and enhanced by a work of the Holy Spirit and shaped into a God-centred and God-honouring mold. Pray that the few Christians among them will become vibrant disciples who will witness Jesus to their kinsmen.
30 Things to Pray about for Missionaries
DAY 4: STRIFE OF TONGUES
“You shall hide them in the secret place of your presence, from the plots of man. You shall keep them secretly in a pavilion, from the strife of tongues.” Psalms 31:20.
Insults, ridicule, scorn, mockery are examples of the strife of tongues, which a missionary often faces. Nehemiah and the Jews had to endure the touting and ridicule of Sanballat and Tobiah who mocked them before the people and army of Samaria (Nehemiah 2:19; 4:1-3).
- Intercede in like manner for missionaries, asking God to hide them from the plots of men and the strife of tongues.
