Prayer Requests for May

April 30, 2014

As we begin a new month, I want to thank you for your prayer support and encouragment.  

In addition to my on-going work, I have been involved in two major projects.  They have been challenging and laced with spiritual warfare.  Over the next few weeks, both will come to a close as we present them to the SBC.  Please join me in praying for:

 

1.  Evangelism Tool

We are involved in the final details–preparing to launch a new evangelism tool that is part of   Life On Mission (click here to preview  the book).   Life On Mission is a discipleship book — and the evangelism tool will be linked as a resource. 

Pray for clarity.  Throughout this process I have been praying Col 4:3-4.  As we bring things to a close this month, I invite you to join me in praying through these verses.

(Col. 4:3-4)  

 

2.  Pastors Task Force on Evangelistic Impact and Declining Baptisms

In September 2013, we convened a Pastors Task Force  (read about it here) to address a major problem in the SBC.  We will release this report soon.  Pray for us as we finalize the work and put the challenge before other pastors & leaders in the SBC.

 

 

Colossians 4:3-4 

At the same time, pray also for us, that God may open to us a door for the word, to declare the mystery of Christ, (on account of which I am in prison)—

that I may make it clear, which is how I ought to speak.
