NAMB Prayer Requests
Please pray the Lord will give us a breakthrough regarding gospel conversations this year as we commit ourselves to sharing within our community. We have ordered special pens printed with our church’s name and website and all our church members will use them as they share Christ. Every Sunday we will encourage our people to share with one person and give him or her a pen as a gift. We are praying and believing God for the salvation of souls. Thank you.
Please pray for my family and me as we have made the difficult decision to leave the church we love and move to New Brunswick in Atlantic Canada. We want to be a help to my wife’s ailing mother and to (God willing) work to plant and strengthen churches in that needy area of the country. Please pray our kids do well in the move and settle well into their new community. Please pray for me as I begin bivocational ministry by working a secular job. Please pray the Lord will provide for us and protect us. And please pray for Grace Church as they enter a transition period leading to their next pastor and the next stage of their young life.
Please pray for my family. I have two children in college who especially need prayer. Pray for our church and pray also that God would provide for the needs of my family.
I have been away from my family for the past six months and will not unite with them again until July at the earliest. Pray for my wife, Sunhee, as she deals with our three sons alone. Our eldest has autism, cognitive delay, ADHD and seizures.
Our young church has the potential to grow, but we really need a safe place to rent or one we can call our own. Last year, we were protested by a portion of the LGBTQ+ community in our neighbourhood. If we rent somewhere, and it’s found out, we will likely be protested again, and it’s hard to keep a rental space if you are constantly targeted. Home gatherings are very foreign to the people here as they heavily associate the church with buildings, so a house church is not a viable option for us. Please pray we can find someone who is willing to rent to us or that a building becomes available at a reasonable price!
Please pray for us as we transition to meeting in the YMCA in our community. We believe God has opened this door at the right time to enable us to continue to connect with our community and show them the love of Jesus. Please also pray for our leadership team as we lead through this transition and continue to develop leaders who will own the mission and multiply it throughout the church. Last but not least, please pray for our family. Pray we will continue to build one another up and prioritize each other during this season of church planting.
Pray for our church as we continue to reach new people, disciple them and send them into the city of Boston to make more disciples. We have many unbelievers and new believers in our church. We had five baptisms in 2022 and are hoping for 10 in 2023. This means we need more leaders to fill the gaps while we pour into new believers and prepare them to lead in the future. Boston is very transient. Pray for the heartache of saying goodbye to old faces, and pray God gives us the energy to continue to welcome new ones.
