NAMB Prayer Requests
I am taking a new position as the wellness unit director for the Arkansas State Police, which will require us to move to central Arkansas. Pray the wellness team members will be both proactive and reactive in considering the personal and professional needs of the more than 1,000 employees of the Arkansas State Police. Please pray Jennifer and I would have a successful relocation, that there would be a teaching position for Jennifer in the new school district and that we would have continued peace and faith as we rely on God’s guidance and His perfect timing.
Please pray for the organizers and attendees of the Association of Christians Ministering among Internationals (ACMI) conference, which will be held June 11–13. This conference will celebrate four decades of networking and equipping among international student ministers from multiple denominations, including Southern Baptists. Pray today that international student ministers on campuses across the U.S. and Canada would have God’s strength, stamina, flexibility and grace. Pray local churches will welcome students from every nation and share God’s love with them. Pray the Lord of the Harvest will raise up more international student ministers to serve on campuses everywhere.
We would greatly appreciate prayer as we begin construction on a building for our church. Pray that the Lord would continue to provide for our needs and that we would have a smooth construction process. We will be new to the neighborhood, so please pray that we would have favor among neighbors and in the local school. Pray that we would be faithful to share the gospel and that we would see people come to Christ. Please also pray for the team we are sending out in September to plant a church. The name of the church will be Harvest Church. Thank you for praying.
Please pray that God would raise 12 Bible study teachers from within our church and that He would stir our members to have an active prayer life. Pray we would all be filled with the Holy Spirit. Pray we would make wise decisions regarding how we conduct our Sunday worship services. Please also pray as we plan for Vacation Bible School, which will be held June 28–July 3. Pray we would have great success in our community and that many who are lost will be saved.
Pray those who have been watching our worship services online can make it to Sunday morning in-person services, as live services reopen.
The week the pandemic hit, our church plant voted to merge with a church that has 60 years of ministry in a community with few evangelical churches. We are preparing to have our grand opening August 15. Pray we will see hundreds of lives changed by Jesus in our community and around the world.
Please pray for us as we work to have Beacon Church fully functioning by the time college students return to Kutztown University in August. We are also taking over the leadership of our community’s after-school program (Oasis) for middle-school and high-school students. We have a lot on our plates all at once. Pray we would have a palpable sense of God’s presence and empowerment as we move forward with these new things. Thanks in advance.
