10/12 Andrew Brunson has been released! Thank you for your prayers. For more information, read here.
10/12 PRAY FOR BRUNSON: PRAISE Read Psalm 16, and praise God that He will keep Andrew and all who attend the trial safe, and that God will accomplish His great purposes. PONDER What happens in the courtroom today can impact many lives, and even nations. PRAY Remembering that Turkey is between 7 and 9 hours head of American, depending on the time zone you live in, intercede through the day, praying for God to lead and to use this trial for His glory. Pray for Andrew and all who testify, to be bold, proclaiming God’s sovereign grace (Ephesians 6:19). Pray that unless the Lord has a purpose we cannot yet see, that Andrew will be deported and his charges dropped. 
10/11 CPC: Our sympathy is extended to the family and friends of Rowenna Bartholomew. The funeral service will be Monday at 11am in Sherman’s Funeral Home.
10/11 PRAY FOR BRUNSON: PRAISE Read Psalm 15, and praise God for the truth that if we are holy before God, we will be protected and helped by God. PONDER The American government at the highest levels has been advocating and pressuring for Andrew’s release. This very fact is amazing evidence that God answers the prayers of the righteous. How often does a bold Christian become such a focal point for the international media, even a f lashpoint between nations? God is using Andrew as a witness. PRAY The media around this trial can bring God great glory. Pray for all of the media representatives in the trial to be safe, and for journalists to create reports that will glorify God (see the work of Open Doors: link). Pray for Andrew to be emboldened to give a clear Gospel witness. Pray for the Turkish press and also for the guards (Jandarma) in tomorrow’s trial to hear the Gospel.
10/10 PRAY FOR BRUNSON: PRAISE Read Psalm 14, and praise God for wisdom promised for those who ask, even for the foolish. PONDER There are 44,000 Macedonians in Turkey. As we pray for them, we can recall PRAY how God led Paul to Macedonia through supernatural guidance (Acts 16:9). May such wisdom also guide Andrew’s upcoming trial. If God can guide His servants, and If God can move the heart of a king (Proverbs 21:21), God can move government leaders, court officials, and the proceedings of the trial. Pray for God to prepare all of the players in the trial: the prosecution, the defense, every witness, and Andrew himself. 
10/9 JEAN BROWN: Travel mercies for her sister returning to Florida.
