NAMB Prayer Requests
After eight years of collegiate ministry in Southern California, my wife, Joy, and I are in the process of joining a ministry called Grizzly Christian Fellowship at the University of Montana in Missoula, Mont. It is exciting to take the gospel to a place known by locals as “the school where faith goes to die.” We are overjoyed to join the efforts of Grizzly Christian Fellowship in seeing students come to Christ and learn to make disciples who make disciples for the glory of God in the Northwest! Our greatest need in order to make this happen is housing. Missoula is flooded with buyers and renters, but there are no housing vacancies. This is driving costs through the roof! Please pray God will provide us a home large enough to host college students. Pray God will transform the lives of hardened atheistic students. Pray Christian students will take the Great Commission seriously and become disciple-making evangelists!
I have a prayer of thanksgiving. A house that I have been trying to sell finally has a contract. Trying to sell the home had put a huge strain on me and my family. I asked for prayers for this matter last year. Prayers were answered. Thank you for praying!
Please pray for our Faith Riders Lakes Church chapter and Our Faith Riders national and international ministries. We have gone through several changes lately. Most are positive, though we have lost some dear friends and leaders in this ministry to COVID-19. We are praying for wisdom, discernment, compassion, humility and a spirit of service. We are also praying for two very close ministry partners. Please pray that God’s blessings and anointing will be poured out in a powerful way on their ministries and ours. Thank you, prayer warriors!
One Family Church will be launching in September. By God’s grace people are joining us and are excited about the mission and vision. They are also being generous with their time and treasures, but at the moment we still have needs. Pray God will provide for our needs and that we will not be anxious as we wait. Also, in this season, it is far too easy for me to be so busy trying to build a ministry that I can forget to do the real work of ministry. Pray I will prioritize intimacy with Jesus and focus on the gospel above all else.
I have a 72-year-old Jewish neighbor being treated for pancreatic cancer. She is fairly open to the gospel of Jesus Christ. I am burdened for her salvation. Please pray that she and her husband will accept the salvation offered through Jesus.
Please pray we can locate low-cost lodging for the volunteers and interns who will be coming to serve with us in southwest Houston this summer. The Lord continues to raise up laborers for the harvest, so join us in praying for a place for these harvesters to sleep. Pray also that we would have many divine appointments with people who are hungry to know Jesus!
The Louisiana Correctional Institute for Women (LCIW) is preparing a location for inmates who were displaced during the 2016 flood. Pray that the renovations are completed soon and the ladies are moved safely. Pray they designate sufficient space for the chapel ministry at this location so we can carry out our work. Pray for revival at LCIW.
As usual, thank you for your prayers for and support of our ministry! The land donated to us more than three years ago (many of you have been praying for it to sell) is finally under contract! We are scheduled to close March 8. Please pray that the closing takes place! Please also pray for our leadership as several changes are taking place within our region. These changes are “future vision” things for us, but God is jumping ahead of our schedule (LOL). Pray for wisdom and guidance as we navigate through them. Please pray for the student leaders at Volunteer High. They started a First Priority club in February and have already shared the gospel with every person at their school. Pray for students and churches in Elizabethton, Tenn., as they work to launch First Priority on the campuses of the city’s middle and high schools. Pray God will raise up more students to get involved and for churches to unite around the campuses. Pray for all our schools as they plan to reopen at full capacity in March.
