Prayer Requests for Sovereign Grace Churches

Here is a repost from Mark Prater, Executive Director of Sovereign Grace Churches, with a series of prayer requests for our family of churches.

Recently, one of our pastors, Tim Kerr (Pastor, Sovereign Grace Church Toronto, Toronto, Canada), wrote a small book about payer entitled, “22 Life Lessons on Prayer.” In Lesson 13, Tim is speaking about praying in the Spirit saying, “To pray in the Spirit is to pray when the Spirit moves in our hearts and helps us to desire and seek God’s will. It is the Spirit imparting the heart of God to us in the moment. When we pray in the Spirit, as John Owen says so compellingly, ‘we see a sight of God as on a throne of grace’ and we know He welcomes our prayers to Him.” Isn’t it stunning that God welcomes our prayers? Oh my, what a good God we serve!

As you pray, please consider praying for Sovereign Grace. Here are a few of our prayer requests during the first quarter of the year:

  • Pray that God would give the members and pastors of Sovereign Grace churches opportunities to befriend unbelievers and share the gospel with them during 2020.
  • Please pray for Bob Kauflin who is leading in the production of the next Christmas/Advent album from Sovereign Grace Music scheduled to be released in October. Pray that God would give Bob wisdom in determining which songs to include on this album that were written at a recent Sovereign Grace Music Song Writers Retreat that he led.
  • Pray for Joselo Mercado (Sr. Pastor, Iglesia Gracia Soberana de Gaithersburg, Gaithersburg, MD) who will be making trips to Costa Rica and Columbia in the next couple of months where he will meet with pastors who lead churches that have expressed a desire to be adopted into Sovereign Grace.
  • Pray that God would continue to provide financially for Sovereign Grace Churches so that we can fund the gospel opportunities He is giving us.
