We encourage you to keep praying for the Kingdom Expansion over the weekend, so we have listed the prayer prompts for each day below:
Friday: Lift up the members of the Building and Kingdom Expansion Committees and pray for wisdom and discernment to guide them through the process.
Saturday: Ask God to strengthen and empower Woodlands’ supported missionaries and global partners so they can help others seek God, know His name, and trust in Him.
Sunday: Ask God to show us what our “piece of the puzzle” is; how do we each fit into God’s Kingdom Expansion? Let’s examine our hearts before God and confess anything that has come between us and Him, and relinquish to Him our own dreams and hopes for the future while trusting in His sovereign plan.
Reflect on the power of His NAME each day, by reading Philippians 2:8-11
And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to death— even death on a cross! Therefore God exalted Him to the highest place and gave Him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
Keep praying for your family members. Who will you pray for today?
Pray for your circle of influence. Who are some people that you tend to see often and can influence for Christ?

Another missionary couple is working to better train pastors in the Latino world and that is Enrique (Quique) and Becky Fernandez. Quique and Becky work with Prometa to help raise up pastors with deeper theological training through this online platform called ProMeta. The purpose of ProMeta is to help new pastors fulfill their call.
These past few days we've prayed for different countries and the people of Central and South America. A resounding prayer request has been to pray for better Biblical literacy and sound theological training. Continue to pray for Quique and Becky, Oscar and Karla, Jim and Kay as they labor to see this become a reality.
Let's end today by praying the prayer that Brian introduced for the Kingdom Expansion:
“Pray that the word of the Lord will spread rapidly and be glorified.” - 2 Thessalonians 3:1
God, use this building expansion to cause the gospel to shine brighter, run faster, and reach farther, for the sake of YOUR NAME.
