Psalm 127.1 says, ‘Unless the LORD builds the house, those who build it labour in vain’, and in headline, that’s why we so need your prayers! Unless the Lord builds the house, we labour in vain and so as we look out on February and what’s ahead, here's some headlines that you can be praying for…
Please pray for Riley Spring (Church Planter - Sovereign Grace Church Sydney), as he begins weekly meetings with the Parramatta Church Plant Team ahead of the church plant launch on Sunday 8th September.
Please pray for Kyle Huber (Senior Pastor of Greentree Church & Co-Founder of SEE Global, Belarus) and Nathan Smith (Senior Pastor of Grace Church Bristol, UK) as they make a trip to Belarus, 18th-25th February. They’ll be meeting with key church leaders who Kyle’s known for a number of years now, to assist them in the planning of training for their leaders as they seek to raise up more church planters. As well as identify pastors who may be well served by a growing relationship with Sovereign Grace Churches.
Please pray for C.B. Eder (Senior Pastor, Christ Community Church, PA) and John Reyes (Pastor, Christ Community Church, PA) as they head over to Croatia, 4-11th February, to visit with and encourage Mario & Jen Vucenovic, as well as Daniel & Kaitlyn Crocker who were sent out to support them as missionaries. Please pray that God would refresh the Vucenovic's and Crocker's, and that our Sovereign Grace Church in Zapresic would be greatly encouraged through our gospel partnership.
Please pray for Eric Turbedsky (Senior Pastor, Sovereign Grace Church, Orange, CA), Ben Kreps (Senior Pastor, Living Hope Church, PA) and myself, Dave Taylor, as we head over to Liberia, Africa, 27th Feb - 9th March, to serve our good friend Dyonah Thomas. Whilst there we’ll be teaching over 110 pastors who will be attending their Pastors College for that week, teaching in some of their Grace Network Churches, and continuing to develop and strengthen our partnerships with the brothers there. Please pray that God would give us wisdom in how to best steward our growing partnership with Dyonah and the churches he serves in West Africa.
Please pray for ongoing safety for our Pastors around the world, particularly those in unreached nations, or nations hostile to the Gospel.
Thankyou so much. May His grace abound to us all!
