NAMB Prayer Requests
My wife, Doris, is having surgery tomorrow morning (May 7) to correct a blockage in her left carotid artery. She recently had aortic valve replacement and is anxious about going through another surgery. We are trusting God and reminding ourselves of the strength we have through Him. We appreciate you fortifying us through prayer.
I am having a second surgery on my left eye on May 11. Please pray that I will have improved vision in that eye. Thanks.
Pray for the hundreds of prison employees in our area who will be without a job when the prison closes at the end of the year. This area is already suffering economically. Thanks.
Please pray God would graciously send some seasoned leaders to help establish our church plant, Discovery Church, in our neighborhood.
Please pray for the staff of Baptist Church on Homedale as they continue to recover from COVID-19. Most are doing very well, but a few are still struggling.
Thank you for praying for Calvary West Littleton. Please ask that God would make us a people who go, show and tell the gospel boldly. As you pray for our church, consider praying through these passages: “Then he said to his disciples, ‘The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore, pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest'” (Matthew 9:37-38). “Pray also for me, that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should” (Ephesians 6:19-20). Based on these passages, please ask that God would raise us up to be laborers for the harvest, that God would use us to bring people to faith in Jesus every year He gives us life until He calls us home, and that Calvary West Littleton would be bold and fearless proclaimers of the gospel. Thank you for your prayers, and we would love to hear from you!
Please pray for the following schools as students and churches seek to launch First Priority campus ministries on these campuses this fall: Sullivan East High, West Ridge High, Elizabethton High, TA Duggar Middle, Happy Valley Middle, Hampton High and several others. There are 66 schools in our region; we have First Priority clubs on 21 campuses. Please pray for the many clubs that are focusing on sharing the gospel with the class of 2021 before graduation. Eighty-five percent of people who follow Christ make that decision before they graduate high school. The next two months is a vital time to share hope with our seniors. Thank you! Soli Deo Gloria.
Please pray for my church ministry and my family.
I serve in two housing projects having 110 apartments in Monroe, Ga. In April, we went door-to-door delivering bags containing a DVD of The Jesus Film as told through the eyes of children, packets of popcorn and two boxes of movie-type candies. Pray that the Father will use these items in amazing ways we can’t imagine, that hearts will be softened toward the gospel and that many would be born into the kingdom. Pray that believers will share the DVD with friends and family who need to hear. In December, you prayed for the activity kits we gave out during the winter months. Thank you so very much as we gave out 50–60 bags per week! This was a huge hit with children, teens and adults. Many adults thanked us for doing this for the kids. Each week the kids came running to us excited about everything, especially their Bibles. An adult said it’s like “VBS in a bag” for the children. One grandparent used her bags when her grandchildren visited her. Again, thank you!
