My wife, Jill, is currently hospitalized with COVID-19 pneumonia. Please pray healing for her.
As is true with many churches, we find ourselves unable to do events in our typical location. We do nearly all of our events on the campus of Wayne State University in Detroit (as we make efforts to reach college students), and they have informed us that they will allow no events on campus this fall semester. Please join us in praying for God’s wisdom and guidance as we explore in prayer where He is leading us during the next semester, or even the entire academic year. We are holding tightly to the truth that He gives generously to those who ask!
Pray that a building for us to use will open up if we are not allowed to return to our elementary school. Pray for wisdom as we make plans for how to best reach college students amid restrictions related to COVID-19. Pray for wisdom for me as I seek to lead our church to be effective at outreach and discipleship. Ask God to give me wisdom in how to maximize my time most effectively.
I’m applying for a full-time chaplaincy position at the Kansas City VA. Right now I’m part time. Please pray that I will be satisfied with whatever God gives.
Please pray for me and a team of chaplains as we plan to launch an evening service at All American Chapel this fall or winter. Also pray for wisdom as we navigate uncertainties during this season of COVID-19. Pray for revival and baptisms.
Please pray that our churches can reach people during these summer months. Because of the current pandemic, our regular opportunities have been halted. We also have churches who need pastor and support personnel. Please pray God will call the right people to fill these positions. Please pray for jobs for those in need of employment. Our Savior is gracious and caring in meeting every need. Thank you for praying for all of these needs to be met for His Glory.
Please pray for the men and women in Arkansas prisons who have tested positive and are infected with the coronavirus. The numbers are growing. Please pray for all the cultural and economic challenges we are facing as a nation during the continuing pandemic. Pray for those impacted by natural disasters and for the continued uncertainty faced by kids, families and teachers about returning to school this fall. Thank you. Harold Mitchell, Emeritus IMB missionary.
Thank you to all of our SBC prayer warriors for praying for my family and me as we ended our two and one-half years at Fort Leonard Wood, Mo. We saw 11,090 soldiers give their lives to Jesus during that period. Now, my family and I are serving at the United States Military Academy in West Point, N.Y. Please, join us in prayer that thousands of cadets will come to our Protestant chapel services and will come to Jesus for salvation and be discipled. God gave me Matthew 5:14: “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.” I pray God will shine on His Son, Jesus, so our cadets will experience His eternal and daily freedom. Thank you so very much! For Christ and country! Chaplain (CPT) Jose Rondon: USMA Regimental Chaplain
Three months ago, my husband, Jody, passed to glory suddenly. Please pray for peace and healing for me and our two grown children and their families. Please pray for our sweet church family at Sequoyah Baptist Church. Pray for direction in God’s will. Thank you, and God bless you.
We appreciate continued prayer from our Southern Baptist family as navigate our gatherings in the midst of COVID-19, racial tension and the upcoming election. Pray that our church would be a bright light of the gospel in our community as we serve the Lord.
Please pray for my wife, Judy, who may need more back surgery. She has already had three.
Please pray that God will use Iglesia Bautista Ágape to bring many people to repentance, conversion and baptism and that they will live their lives to glorify Him so it becomes undeniable that God continues to save through Jesus Christ.
I underwent a kidney transplant June 30 and am home now recovering. Please pray for a speedy recovery as we are planning to launch Grace Bible Church in mid-August. We trust the Lord for all things and know He will work out the details. Thanks!
Please pray for the mobilization and training of these potential lead church planters: Frank Alioto, Sven Maakestad and Paul Cushman. All are prayerfully seeking God’s will and direction in becoming church planters.
Please pray for us as I begin the Navy/VA Clinical Pastoral Education Program, and we help to plant Pillar Church San Diego. During this next year, I will be ministering at both the Naval Hospital and the VA Center. Pray that I can be used by God to bring comfort and the message of salvation to service members and veterans.
