MY FAMILY

Who will you pray for today?

MY COMMUNITY:

Pray for the people who live in the community that you live and work in.

Idea: Pray that you would live out Psalm 59:16 as you interact with those people.
"But I will sing of your strength, in the morning I will sing of your love; for you are my fortress, my refuge in times of trouble."

OUR CHURCH:

Pray that the families involved in Woodlands Kids would consider being missional this summer, and reach out to their neighbors and other friends, inviting them to cookouts, 5 Day Clubs or VBS.

OUR WORLD:

Doug Allord is in the middle of a week spent in London meeting and learning and exploring their soon to be new city.  Doug and Rachel are pre-deployed EFCA ReachGlobal staff who hope to deploy this July.  Would you join us in praying for them as they continue to raise support, transition out of their home, and prepare for ministry on a new continent!  

OUR FOCUS:

As we continue to pray for the upcoming summer missions trips, pray for the hearts of everyone going on the trips - that God would prepare their hearts for what He is going to do when they serve Him. Pray that their hearts would be focused on Christ and surrendered to Him. 

Here are some details about the upcoming trips:

  • June 24-30: Wisconsin Dells - 9th & 10th grade trip
  • July 9-20: Uganda, Africa - a trip to equip teachers & families
  • July 14-20: Kansas City, MI - 7th & 8th grade trip

MY FAMILY

 Keep praying for your family members! 

MY COMMUNITY:

Pray for your coworkers today - the people you see daily. 

Idea: Pray that God would open a door for you like He did for Philip in Acts 8:35
"Then Philip began with that very passage of Scripture and told him the good news about Jesus."

OUR CHURCH:

Pray for all of our junior high and senior high students this summer - that they would draw close to Jesus and follow Him each day. 

OUR WORLD:

Since we've last prayed over Logan and Lauren Koerten, they have welcomed a third child into their family, Avery Clayton Koerten!  Logan wrote just two weeks ago:

"Please pray for us.  I humbly ask though ... would you actually take time to pray for us?  Patience, energy, and brotherly harmony seem to all be running on fumes these last few days.  I returned to work and am back on campus starting this week (May 9), so especially pray for Lauren as she's home with the boys during the day.  Eli and Owen are quite the crazy energetic handfuls, and the thought of Lauren caring for them while she's in the season of caring for a newborn is hard to fathom sometimes."

OUR FOCUS:

As we continue to pray for the various missions trips taking place this summer, let's pray in advance for team unity. Pray that the teams would be unified as they prepare for their trips and pray that the unity would continue throughout the entire experience. Pray that they would be one in heart and mind as they serve the Lord! 

Here are some details about the upcoming trips:
June 24-30: Wisconsin Dells - 9th & 10th grade trip
July 9-20: Uganda, Africa - a trip to equip teachers & families
July 14-20: Kansas City, MI - 7th & 8th grade trip
July 21-30: Guatemala - 11th & 12th grade trip

MY FAMILY

Continue to lift your family members before the Lord in prayer. You decide how to structure this part!

MY COMMUNITY:

On Friday's we pray specifically for anyone in our lives who doesn't know Christ. Many months ago, Pastor Mike challenged us to pick our "one" person who we want to share the gospel with - who is your "one"? Pray for him or her today.

Idea: Pray that we would continue to see something similar to what's described in Acts 6:7, happen in our community, by focusing on our "one".
"So the word of God spread. The number of disciples in Jerusalem increased rapidly, and a large number of priests became obedient to the faith."

OUR CHURCH:

As we approach Spring into Action THIS Sunday, let's keep lifting the day up in prayer! Here are a few ways you can pray:

  • Pray Colossians 3:23 over everyone who is serving, “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord and not for human masters." so God will receive all the glory!
  • Pray that everyone serving would believe and walk in Ephesians 2:10: “For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” 
  • Continue to pray for good weather, so that all projects can be completed on time!

OUR WORLD:

Let's lift Tammy up today as we join her in praising God and praying for her: 

  • Praise God that she is finally settled in Thailand after years of school and support raising!
  • Praise God for ministry opportunities that allow her to counsel EA nationals.
  • Pray that she would continue to grow in confidence in her role as a counselor.
  • Please pray for missionaries in her area of the world who are currently being asked to leave their country of service because of denied visas.  Pray that God would help them provide quality care for them as they struggle through the grief and disappointment and wrestle with the uncertainty of what comes next.

OUR FOCUS:

As several ministries wrap up for the school year, many others continue throughout the calendar year.  Praise God for the way He is working through all Woodlands' ministries and pray that we would seek Him for wisdom and insight into how we might better reach non-Christians and devleop disciples here through our efforts.

MY FAMILY

Keep praying for your family members. Who will you pray for today?

MY COMMUNITY:

Pray for your circle of influence. Who are some people that you tend to see often and can influence for Christ? Maybe at the gym, a restaurant, or a community organization?

Idea: Pray that they would believe Acts 4:11-12.
"Jesus is ‘the stone you builders rejected, which has become the cornerstone.’
Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.”

OUR CHURCH:

Pray for our Sunday services. As we continue in our series, "Who is this Man?", pray that the people of Woodlands Church would gain a deeper understanding of who Jesus is and the eternal impact of the life that He lived on earth. Also pray for any people attending on Sunday, who don't know Christ, that they would be drawn to Jesus through the powerful message that is preached about Him!

OUR WORLD:

Art and Genda Freeman serve in Santa Cruz, Bolivia with South America Mission, but are in the final preparations to transition to working in Cochabamba, Bolivia full time with Punto de Gracia while still representing SAM.  They are committed to finishing their time in Santa Cruz well and transitioning well.  Would you pray for them, as you are led, in this time of closing their time in Santa Cruz and transitioning to Cochabamba?

OUR FOCUS:

Praise God for all of the volunteers who have poured into Woodlands' ministries this year (think Kid's Crossing, Student Ministries, classes, life groups, etc.).  Pray for their walk with the Lord as they, too, transition from weekly meetings to more sporadic connection with their ministry community.

Pray for the people who live in the community that you live and work in.

Idea: Pray that God would give you the boldness described in Psalm 56:10-11, as you walk with Christ and share Him with those in your community.
"In God, whose word I praise, in the Lord, whose word I praise—in God I trust and am not afraid. What can man do to me?"

OUR CHURCH:

Tonight Edge wraps up their year by celebrating our 12th grade graduates at "Senior Night". Will you join us in praying for them as they close this chapter of their lives and enter into the next? Pray that they would remain committed to Christ as they begin college or enter into a new job - pray that they would pursue Him and walk with Him each day!

OUR WORLD:

Zach and Aliya Thunder are in the final stages of preparing to move to Niger, Africa!  They hope to move in early July.  Here are a few praises and prayer requests from Zach and Aliya:

  • Praise God that He has provided tickets to Niger and a good, reliable SUV for us to use in country.
  • Praise God that we have been doing well in our French classes.
  • Pray for our family as we are realizing how much spiritual warfare there is and how much the devil hates people going into ministry. This transition has been very hard for our family and we need prayer that God would continue to strengthen our marriage and our spiritual health during this time. Also, pray for the coming transition to Niger with our kids.
  • Pray for our emotional health as we leave family and friends. Both of Aliya’s grandpas are in poor health and it is hard to be far away from them, knowing we may not see them again until heaven!
  • Pray that the rest of our finances will come together before we leave. 

OUR FOCUS:

Pray as you are led for the ministries that have wrapped up their weekly meetings for this school year:  Kid's Crossing, Student Ministries (Edge & Reality Check), classes, and some life groups.  Pray for continued connection with small groups, consistent Bible teaching, a continuation of spiritual disciplines, etc.

Pray for your coworkers today - the people you see daily. 

Idea: As we read through Acts in Woodlands in the Word, pray Acts 3:19 over them (if they don't know Christ). Pray that God would bring them to faith & repentance:
"Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord.."

OUR CHURCH:

Pray for any seeds that were planted through the outreach Kid's Crossing Carnival last Thursday. Pray that families who have never been a part of Woodlands would be curious and interested about the church and would come to a Sunday service or to VBS later in the year.

OUR WORLD:

Erick and Courtney Horrmann are spending the summer leading the Jersey Shore Summer Mission.  Their staff team arrives tomorrow and their students will arrive next week. Erick and Courtney have asked us to pray in this way:
"Pray for us as directors to be mindful, wise, joy-filled and humble leaders.  We are so excited to serve our staff and students this summer, and also see the many many ways He will use our team of 65 to reach thousands this summer with the Gospel.  Pray for many to come to know Jesus in meaningful ways!"

OUR FOCUS:

Let's continue to lift up this year's ministry wrap up.  Pray that the people who have found community in our ministries that meet regularly during the school year would continue in Godly community this summer and would continue in the spiritual disciplines they developed over the school year.

OUR WORLD:

Today we think of Bala and Carol as they work to make Christ known in a place where persecution of Christians is high!  And yet, Bala shared these praises in his last prayer letter:

  • The Lord keeps opening new doors in ***!
  • The Lord keeps raising new people on the US side to serve on short-term trips!
  • The Lord provides more new funds for *** ministry!
  • Lots to praise & worship the Lord for!

Idea: pray Colossians 4:3-6
"And pray for us, too, that God may open a door for our message, so that we may proclaim the mystery of Christ, for which I am in chains. Pray that I may proclaim it clearly, as I should. Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity. Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone."

OUR WORLD:

Zac & Becky Alwin work with Cru in the Wisconsin Dells.  Here are two requests from them:

  • Matthew 9:38:  That God would prepare the hearts of students coming  from all corners of the world, including many closed countries- whether that’s culturally, or governmentally, to the Gospel. That in their search for meaning- they would come to know life to be in their Creator, found only through the saving work of God’s only Son, Jesus Christ.
  • Numbers 6:25: (For Protection & God’s strength):  We have found this harvest field to be a battleground, filled with many difficult and unique challenges.  May we not live out of our own strength, but out of an ever increasing love and obedience to Christ!

OUR FOCUS:

We're still looking ahead to Mother's Day.  Would you take some time to think of a mother, could be your own or just one that is on your heart, and pray for her today?  Pray that her walk with Jesus is ever deepening and sweetening.  Pray that she be encouraged in her current stage of life.  Pray as you're led for her - maybe even reach out to her to encourage her yourself.

Would you join us in praying for the team of workers in Indonesia? There are seven families laboring to see their people reached with the Gospel.  Pray that God will continue to give NSM Church Planters wisdom and creativity in sharing the Gospel and discipling believers.  
Pray that believers will continue to give their time to study God's Word and share the Gospel so that their faith will grow.

OUR FOCUS:

Yesterday our short-term mission team left for Ghana, Africa. Will you pray for them today? Here are a few ways you can pray:

  • Pray for strength and health - there's lots of long travel on this trip and the team is traveling to an area with potential health hazards.
  • Pray for effective ministry to our partner churches in Ghana.
  • Pray for great relational connections with Compassion and church leaders as well as the children.
  • Pray for vision and clarity regarding how we might best partner together in the future.
