PRAY 9/9/20




“…a habit of prayer is one of the surest marks of a true Christian. All the children of God on earth are alike in this respect. From the moment there is any life and reality about their religion, they pray.”

                                                                                  – J. C. Ryle


“For you did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship. And by him we cry, ‘Abba, Father.’ The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children.” (Romans 8:15-16)




Missions Prayer Requests:


Please pray for our upcoming mission trips in 2020:
Please pray for protection from the Corona virus for our missionaries in China.

Please pray for the Gideons International.  They are our missionary partners for this week.

  • The Gideons have been shut down since march.  All of our meetings, including our prayer breakfast, are zoomed. Our business meetings have all been tabled.  We meet in local churches, and many of those are not open yet, except to services.
  • The three pillars of our ministry are: building relationships with our local churches and participating in their missions’ conferences or giving a Gideon report to their congregation; we are not able to do any of these, since march.  We distribute god’s word all across northern Hillsborough Co, about 10,000 scriptures in a good year.  We have not done a distribution since February.  We associate together, meetings, etc. have not met with membership since February.
  • At the camp level we are a fund-raising unit of the Gideons int’l; we praise god for partners such as Idlewild, which continues to bless us with your gift each quarter.  Overall, giving is at about 50% of our annual goal, and ultimately will impact the Gideons on a global level, where we typically will place or distribute over 90,000,000 million scriptures.
  • However, you have been standing against this virus, continue that prayer.  Pray that the impact on churches and ministries like the Gideons will end soon, and recovery will come quickly.
