OCC Prayer Opportunities


Shoeboxes full of gifts can bring happiness for a moment—but introducing young hearts to eternal life through Jesus Christ is our ultimate goal. Please consider joining us to pray year-round on behalf of these precious children and their families.

Spiritual Impact Story for Democratic Republic of Congo

"A child from a Muslim family received a box, but his parents threw it out.  He came, however, to the The Greatest Journey classes and decided to follow Jesus. He now sings praises in front of his parents and treats them as he was taught to in the classes.  As a result of this, his parents freely let him come to the class. Glory to God."

Praises and Prayer Requests from Democratic Republic of Congo

  • Praise God for the successful distributions and for the children who received boxes.
  • Praise God for the discipleship program that has begun in some churches. Pray for the formation work of The Greatest Journey, especially as it began in the Goma Region this year.
  • Praise God for the peace and calm currently in the DRC.  Pray for the political negotiations in the DRC during this election period.
  • Pray all of the churches will focus on discipleship.
  • Pray that each gift will end up in the hands of the child it’s meant for.
  • Pray for unity among the teams.
