Pray for Farmers in East Timor

Description

In rural East Timor, nine out of ten people rely on agriculture for their livelihood.

East Timor celebrated a decade of independence from Indonesia in 2012, but the country still ranks 134 of 186 countries on the United Nations’ human development index. When the rains don’t come, farm families struggle to feed themselves. World Vision equips farmers to improve their yields and income with new farming methods, seeds, and diversified crops.

Lord, we acknowledge our reliance on You to provide the elements necessary to grow crops. We humbly submit our desire for families to flourish by Your provision. We ask that You bring rain. Bring nutrients. Bring hope to struggling families.
