Prayer Focus for the week of Jan. 9th

New Life Church has a prayer focus each week. Our prayer focus is broken down into three categories of ministry: 1. We pray for another local church that is proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ. 2. We pray for a Global Outreach Partner who is proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ around the world. 3. We pray for a ministry of New Life Church that is proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ locally.

Area Church: First Baptist Church – Gladstone, OR, Pastor Brian Early

  • Pray for unity as First Baptist Church is continuing to present Project Nehemiah, a building enhancement project that they will vote on in February.
  • Pray that many will join their “Hear the Word” Bible reading program. The elders provide an insight to a passage of Scripture each day via e-mail as they read through the New Testament and Psalms.
  • Pray for the five person short term mission team which leaves next Thursday for China. Pray for the doors of the Gospel to be open to them.
Global Outreach Partner: Stephanie Rogers – Josiah Venture
  • Pray for wisdom in what to do and opportunities for spiritual conversations with students during the upcoming school breaks.
  • Pray for the students to see that real, full, abundant life is found in Jesus alone and is worth sacrificing for.
  • Praise God that another young single woman is moving out to join Josiah Venture Slovenia at the end of this month and will be Stephanie's roommate.
NLC Ministry: Celebrate Recovery
  • Pray for unity among the leadership.
  • Pray that those who come for dinner and worship would also engage in the small group ministry that is so beneficial for healing in recovery.
  • Pray that those who attend Celebrate Recovery would also join local churches, whether New Life or another Christ-centered church.
