Prayer Focus for the week of June 19th

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: Grace Chapel – Wilsonville, OR. Pastor Mike Tatlock

Global Partner: Paul and Diana Mayhugh – World Venture, China (Ephrata, WA)

  • Pray for our senior pastor, Gary Nock who is presently in Montana caring for his elderly Mother. As a result Paul is filling in for him June 19 and the 26th preaching on Zechariah 13 then 14. 
  • Please pray for Pastor Nathan as he is preparing to go to Asia to visit and participate in ministries there. He will need to have endurance, courage and faith. Pray for his family to entrust him to the Lord during his absence from them.
  • Pray for our church that was ordered to disband on Easter morning by the local authorities. They continue to be full of faith. A number of new Christians were baptized 10 days ago. All had been detained by police prior to their baptism but have not been deterred from their obedience to Christ.
  • Pray for Paul to have diligence in writing his PhD dissertation.
  • Pray for a committed brother to become the pastor of one of our churches. Our current co-worker is retiring in January 2012. 
NLC Ministry: Sports Camp
  • Pray for preparation of the kid's hearts for the truth they will learn about our God and His Gospel.
  • Pray for good weather and that the gospel will be clear, rain or shine.
  • Pray that the volunteers would recognize their dependence upon, and follow the lead of, the Holy Spirit, because apart from Him we produce no fruit.
  • Pray for the safety of the kids that we are entrusted with.
