Again, I am thanking you for your prayers for the last
couple weeks. I sensed much grace as I
was in various ministry situations.
I have just three requests for you at this point. Please join me in praying for…
February 13th. This is the first day of a 40 day prayer emphasis leading up
to Palm Sunday. Each year Waymakers does
a prayer emphasis called “Seek God for the City.” This is an excellent prayer tool for
individuals, families, and cities. Many
thousands of people across the nation are using this tool. You can find out more information at...
Also, this year, we here in Clark County, WA are following
the same dates but using a guide we wrote specifically for Clark County. Over 4,000 people will be using this guide
called “Praying Like Paul… for Clark County”.
You can see more information about this here. We are having an Evening of Prayer for Clark
County on February 13th to start together.
Please pray that these tools would be translated into many effective prayers!

Please pray that the material that has been taught will continue to influence the church in the area. Several attendees said they intended to plant churches based on the concepts of sonship and covenant that the team taught.

January 14th. He lived well, loved well,
