Lord, thank you for the diversity that is Extremadura. Thank you for the green mountains, cork oak forests, vast olive groves, and rich farm lands – all of nature speaks of your creative power.
And Father, though many have forgotten you, you have Extremadura in your heart. You desire everyone to know you, and to find healing, forgiveness and life through Jesus. You love the people in Extremadura. You love the young people and the elderly, the farm workers, the towns people. You love the school children, the house wives, the store clerks. You love the lonely, the happy, the poor – you love all the people of Extremadura.
Send workers, Lord, to start churches in Extremadura. Send workers who are willing to brave the heat of opposition and the drought of indifference. Send workers who are willing to break the soil and plant the seed of your Word and nurture new believers one by one, until your church is established in Extremadura.
In the name of Jesus,
