HAVE YOU ever had a burden to minister to someone, but you were discouraged by what appeared to be a barrier or obstacle?

Colossians 4:3 says, "Be sure to pray that God will make a way for us to spread his message and explain the mystery about Christ, . . ."

Those serving in First Nations ministry continually face numerous barriers and obstacles when trying to share the Gospel of Christ.

TODAY, I INVITE YOU to pray with me that our Creator will faithfully make a way for our Native people and those serving in Native Ministry to share His message of hope.

Acts 11:21 says, "The Lordís power was with them, and many people turned to the Lord and put their faith in him."

Ask our Creator to clear a path for our First Nations people and those serving in Native Ministry, so they will confidently share His message of Christís salvation, healing and deliverance.

ADDITIONAL SCRIPTURES (4 translations: The Scriptures, CEV, Amplified, KJV):
"The Scriptures" is a translation that includes the original Hebrew names and has the books in chronological order.  The Contemporary English Version (CEV) is a translation that is written for 'oral tradition' peoples and it flows well while reading it aloud.  The Amplified version is one where meanings of words and phrases are 'amplified' for better understanding.  The King James Version (KJV) is the translation that works well with Strong's Concordance. Please also note the links to Scripture in Cherokee.

Colossians 4:2-6 - "Continue in prayer, watching therein, with thanksgiving, praying at the same time also for us, that Elohim would open to us a door for the word, to speak the secret of Messiah, for which I am also in chains, so that I make it clear, as I should speak. Walk in wisdom toward those who are outside, redeeming the time. Let your word always be with favour, seasoned with salt, so that you know how you ought to answer each one." (The Scriptures)
Colossians 4:2-6 - "Never give up praying. And when you pray, keep alert and be thankful. Be sure to pray that God will make a way for us to spread his message and explain the mystery about Christ, even though I am in jail for doing this. Please pray that I will make the message as clear as possible. When you are with unbelievers, always make good use of the time. Be pleasant and hold their interest when you speak the message.  Choose your words carefully and be ready to give answers to anyone who asks questions." (CEV)
Colossians 4:2-6 - "Be earnest and unwearied and steadfast in your prayer [life], being [both] alert and intent in [your praying] with thanksgiving. And at the same time pray for us also, that God may open a door to us for the Word  (the Gospel), to proclaim the mystery concerning Christ (the Messiah) on account of which I am in prison; That I may proclaim it fully and make it clear [speak boldly and unfold that mystery], as is my duty. Behave yourselves wisely [living prudently and with discretion] in your relations with those of the outside world (the non-Christians), making the very most of the time and seizing (buying up) the opportunity. Let your speech at all times be gracious (pleasant and winsome), seasoned {as it were] with salt, [so that you may never be at a loss] to know how you ought to answer anyone [who puts a question to you]." (Amplified)
Colossians 4:2-6 - "Continue in prayer, and watch in the same with thanksgiving; Withal praying also for us, that God would open unto us a door of utterance, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in bonds: That I may make it manifest, as I ought to speak. Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time. Let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man." (KJV)
Colossians Chapter 4 in Cherokee.

Acts 11:19-24 - Then, indeed, they who were scattered because of the pressure that arose over Stephanos passed through to Phoenicia, and Cyprus, and Antioch, speaking the word to no one except the Yehudim only.  But some of them were men from Cyprus and Cyrene, who, when they had come to Antioch, speaking to the Hellenists, bringing the Good News: the Master !  And the hand of the Master was with them, and a great number having believed turned to the Master. And word of it came to the ears of the assembly in Yerushalayim, and they sent out Barnabah to go as far as Antioch, who, having come, and seeing the favour of Elohim, was glad, and encouraged them all with purpose of heart to cleave to the Master.  Because he was a good man, and filled with the Set-apart Spirit and with belief. And large numbers were added to the Master." (The Scriptures)
Acts 11:19-24 - "Some of the Lord's followers had been scattered because of the terrible trouble that started when Stephen was killed.  They went as far as Phoenicia, Cyprus, and Antioch, but they told the message only to the Jews.  Some of the followers from Cyprus and Cyrene went to Antioch and started telling Gentiles the good news about the Lord Jesus.  The Lord's power was with them, and many people turned to the Lord and put their faith in him. News of what was happening reached the church in Jerusalem. Then they sent Barnabas to Antioch. When Barnabas got there and saw what God had been kind enough to do for them, he was very glad. So he begged them to remain faithful to the Lord with all their hearts.  Barnabas was a good man of great faith, and he was filled with the Holy Spirit. Many more people turned to the Lord." (CEV)
Acts 11:19-24 - "Meanwhile those who were scattered because of the persecution that arose in connection with Stephen had traveled as far away as Phoenicia and Cyprus and Antioch, without delivering the message [concerning the attainment through Christ of salvation in the kingdom of God] to anyone except Jews. But there were some of them, men of Cyprus and Cyrene, who on returning to Antioch spoke to the Greeks also, proclaiming [to them] the good news (the Gospel) about the Lord Jesus. And the presence of the Lord was with them with power, so that a great number [learned] to believe (to adhere to and trust in and rely on the Lord) and turned and surrendered themselves to Him. The rumors of this came to the ears of the church (assembly) in Jerusalem, and they sent Barnabas to Antioch.  When he arrived and saw what grace (favor) God was bestowing upon them, he was full of joy; and he continuously exhorted (warned, urged, and encouraged) them all to cleave unto and remain faithful to and devoted to the Lord with [resolute and steady] purpose of heart. For he was a good man [good in himself and also at once for the good and the advantage of other people], full of and controlled by the Holy Spirit and full of faith (of his belief that Jesus is the Messiah, through Whom we obtain eternal salvation). And a large company was added to the Lord." (Amplified)
Acts 11:19-24 - "Now they which were scattered abroad upon the persecution that arose about Stephen travelled as far as Phenice, and Cyprus, and Antioch, preaching the word to none but unto the Jews only. And some of them were men of Cyprus and Cyrene, which , when they were come to Antioch, spake unto the Grecians, preaching the Lord Jesus. And the hand of the Lord was with them: and a great number believed, and turned unto the Lord. Then tidings of these things came unto the ears of the church which was in Jerusalem: and they sent form Barnabas, that he should go as far as Antioch. Who, when he came, and had seen the grace of God, was glad, and exhorted them all, that with purpose of heart they would cleave unto the Lord.  For he was a good man, and full of the Holy Ghost and of faith: and much people was added unto the Lord." (KJV)
Acts Chapter 11 in Cherokee.
