Wildflowers in Malawi
by Kim Bond
I pray for Your country that You love—Malawi.
Thank you for these beautiful African people;
they are like wildflowers sunning themselves in a field.
Rain down a rich blessing on the poor in this nation
for You have made them heirs to a divine inheritance.
Heap Your love, mercy, and grace as high
as the magnificent Mount Mulange
for Your love is as deeper than Lake Malawi.
We praise You that You have populated
this land with a large number of Christians.
Make them swift as the antelope to carry Your Word
to every corner—from swamp to shore.
Quadruple the number and size of fish drawn out of its waters,
and likewise quadruple the number and size of disciples
raised up by Your missionaries across its land—
from Mzuzu in the north to Blantyre in the south.
Extend the free gift of salvation to the
unreached people of Gujarati, Kachchi, Swahili, and Yao.
Bring an end to the disastrous flooding
according to Your enduring and everlasting kindness.
Weave together a quilt of cooperation among missionaries, officials, and others
to improve the quality of life for its people especially in the areas of
economy, communication, and infrastructure.
Raise Your hand to halt the AIDS/HIV epidemic,
and heal those on beds of suffering with Your loving touch.
Shine Your righteous light in every corner
so every man, woman, and child knows that
calling on Your glorious Name gives power to the weak,
wisdom to the foolish, and hope to the hopeless.
Thank You, Lord, for hearing our prayer.
In Christ’s Name,
