In Christ for the Sake of the World

PRAY FOR OUR NEIGHBORHOODS & THE NATIONS

GLOBAL OUTREACH

Bolivia: Drs. Placido & Toni Mercado

Prayer Request:

We know AND feel we are exactly where God wants us to be, but we are bone tired. COVID has hit hard both by infecting people and by becoming the only focus of the health system which closes the door on those with other problems. This has pushed our patient number higher than we have ever had in our lives and our patients are poorer than ever. Please pray for love, strength and wisdom.

Cambodia:  Dr. Felipe and Joy Castro

Prayer Request:

We pray for a blessing of Bileg’s partnership with Saving Susan Ministry & ask that it would be used for God’s glory in the discipling of the orphans raised at their children’s home. We praise God for 3 orphans from the Bileg children’s home being baptized recently! We pray for a blessing on their church and outreach ministries, that God would use them and their staff to spread the Gospel to those who are starving to hear the Good News around them. Also, pray for Grace – for her provision and a closer relationship with our Sanctuary Kids who support her.

Cambodia:  Pastor Paul and Jeanet Tabanao

Prayer Request:

Please pray for new marriages and businesses to be faithful in serving the Lord. Pray for missionary teachers and pastors as they build churches and reach their communities with the gospel. Pray for safety, health and the challenges related to COVID-19.

Cambodia:  Pastor Sihok

Prayer Request:

Please pray for wisdom , knowledge and understanding from God. Pray for more souls to be saved and baptized. Pray for our five churches that God gave us to handle. We trust God will provide what we need during this pandemic time. We invite you to pray for our construction building in the Dumpsite. We also ask for prayers for our medical Mission Outreach ministry and our Bible School training. Please pray for me and my family.

Cambodia:  Saving Susan Ministry

Prayer Request:

Pray that the Lord would lead us in the mission He has proclaimed for Saving Susan Ministry while borders are closed. Through His power, we ask for open borders. We ask the Lord to reveal Himself and work through us as we strengthen relationships, encourage and love our missionary partners and the children we serve. May God remember and act on behalf of each orphan who needs a Parent Partner and bring a loving family into each child’s life. May transformation happen on both sides of those relationships. Please also pray for those orphans in college that we support.

Dominican Republic:  Camilo & Carla Garcia

Prayer Request:

Pray for the physical and spiritual well-being of all of us. We pray for strength and patience in order to remain healthy and reduce unnecessary risks. That we can all draw closer to our Lord and that our faith will grow stronger as this pandemic continues. We pray constantly that our decisions will honor God and that our actions remain in accordance with His will. We pray for our kids and youth to trust God’s will and love for them. May the Lord bless and protect our faith family and ministry partners. We know He who is in us is greater than he who is in the world.

Ethiopia:  Because of Kennedy

Prayer Request:

We are praising God that BoK has completed the first step to being registered as a foreign NGO in Ethiopia. Our prayer is that the Lord will continue to pave the way for the final steps of registration. May the Lord continue to guide the new BoK programs that will start this summer. May we glorify the Lord in all our works.

Peru:  Pepe & Erin Acat

As the country of Peru has returned to strict lockdown with curfew, many families are suffering without a way to work and support their families. Pray for provision and hope! Pray that our partner churches would continue to grow in faith and numbers as they meet online. Please pray for wisdom, creativity, and stamina for our family as we endure another lockdown with two small children.

LOCAL OUTREACH

Mercy Street Ministries: Bethany Foran

Prayer Request:

I am blindly walking in faith towards God moving me into a new area of serving on the streets. My dream is to open my own long-term program and I believe God is moving in that area and I’m praying for property, housing, funding etc. Pray for peace, wisdom and God to open up the flood gates and do what he does. God has given me a release from the Dream Center but I’m not sure when that will be. I’m currently working on hiring and securing the safe house for when he moves me. I just know he’s moving me into a new season and I’m trusting him blindly.

FCA: David & Tricia Delk

Prayer Request:

We pray to see the world impacted for Jesus Christ through the influence of coaches and athletes.

Local School: Hayes Elementary

Please pray for our school and Cobb County right now. In general, we are all feeling the anxiety of being able to stay healthy and help our community with their own concerns about health and the future. We have kids that are starting to show anxiety and families that have been seriously impacted by the pandemic. Prayers for healing, protection, and a general sense of hope that God is truly in control and going to use all of this for His glory and good. Please also pray for those staff members that have lost someone due to COVID-19 and for comfort in their grief.

Local School: Lost Mountain Middle

Prayer Request:

Pray for peace to overcome all the stress that has moved into the lives of teachers, staff and families as everyone navigates the constant changes due to COVID-19. Pray that the LMMS family would be covered by His protection and that people would respond to one another in love, not out of the stress and anxiety that the daily circumstances bring.

SUPPORTED MINISTRIES

Blue Skies:  Melinda Mayton

Prayer Request:

If there is any way to safely hold camp this summer, we are planning to launch our modified program in June. We are so in hopes to continue bringing the hope of Jesus to children with cancer and their families. We are in prayer and continually exploring how best to do this in our new world. We trust Him with what’s next. And, if having camp is what’s next at Blue Skies, we look to Jesus to provide the necessities: location, funding, families to care for and volunteers to serve them. Would you pray that we would be quiet and attentive before the Lord in seeking His next steps for us?

Fishing For Hope:  Tim Johnson

Prayer Request:

Colossians 4:2-6
Continue earnestly in prayer, being vigilant in it with thanksgiving; meanwhile praying also for us, that God would open to us a door for the word, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in chains, that I may make it manifest, as I ought to speak.
Walk in wisdom toward those who are outside, redeeming the time.
Let your speech always be with grace, seasoned with salt, that you may know how you ought to answer each one.

Paulding Pregnancy Services:  Paula Decarreau

Prayers that God would continue to bring women to PPS who truly need our services.

We also ask for prayers for unity for our staff and strength that we may not grow weary in our service to the Lord.

Sunrise Ministries:  Kimberly McDevitt

We ask for prayers for our Outreach street teams. Pray for God’s power to go forth through His people to reach broken lives in Jesus name and set the captive free from lies, strongholds, emotional bondage and physical bondage. Pray names will be written in the Lamb’s book of life and that lives will be transformed by the power of the cross. Pray for signs, wonders and miracles to go forth to declare our Great God and His great Love, which brings hope to the hurting and weary.

FAMILIES OF MISSIONARIES

Asia:  Andrew & Meghan

Prayer Request:

We are nearing the end of our furlough in the USA and are planning to return to Southeast Asia in March. It is a lengthy process to get approved to return to our country, and we will need to complete a 2-week quarantine once we arrive. Please pray for the Lord to make a way for us to return home soon, and pray for our families as we say goodbye.

North Africa:  Daniel & Jenna

Prayer Request:

In our host nation in North Africa, much worldly and spiritual opposition exists against effort for the Gospel of Jesus. In the worldly sense, red tape and subtle obstruction has come against us in recent months, slowing our visa approval process and disheartening our energy and peace. In the spiritual sense, bondage of the millions here through two strategies of Satan: serving works-righteousness and the dark, cold system of Islam. Please pray for liberation and breakthrough in these two areas by God’s mighty hand!

Spain:  Brooks & Jordan

Prayer Request:

Please pray for flexibility as we continue to be affected and need to constantly change plans due to covid. We are meeting one on one with students in open air facilities to make the most of opportunities to do some very intentional discipleship with students we already know. En Vivo is also putting out weekly content on our new podcast, “Conectate”. Jordan has begun meetings for one-on-one outdoor yoga classes with her students and Brooks is taking time doing some kitchen renovations. Pray as we parent Lola and manage the finances of En Vivo.

Turkey:  Justin & Elizabeth

Prayer Request:

COVID restrictions have made it very difficult to connect with people, therefore making sharing truth difficult.  We’ve pivoted to using social media to cast wide nets.  Pray that the HS would soften people’s hearts, heighten their curiosity, and give them the courage to watch the videos, read the information, and engage in chats.

Africa:  Julie

Prayer Request:

Noepe is raising finances for campus expansion; building more staff housing, repairing and creating more classroom space for the Primary and Secondary schools, creating a safe play space for staff children, and building a water tower to provide enough water for all living on the base. Pray for enough finances to run the mission base; enough money for food, electricity, and support for our staff. Pray that God will do mighty works here and this can be a place of transformation, training, and sending workers to all Nations.
