Prayer Night Review – God does BIG things through a culture of prayer

Greetings Grace Family!
It was a sweet gathering of brothers and sisters in Christ last Sunday night as the area Converge churches gathered here at Grace Baptist in Waverly to pray and praise together. We had a great time in worship led by Pastor Zane Hall and the worship team from Jesup Bible Fellowship. and interspersed through the evening were sweet times of prayer together. Below are the prayer requests and praises that we lifted up together last Sunday night.

Jesup – We’re praising God for 39 people sent out on mission for the Gospel from Jesup, and we’re praying for leadership development with the church.We’re also praying for the tough times some of the families in the congregation are experiencing. May they find sufficiency in God through the trials.

Grace Waverly – We are praising God for how he has blessed the church in the time of transition, and praying that He would continue to lead us as we approach the launch of our Wednesday Night programming. Praying also for wisdom for our elders and deacons in leading the church well.

Grace Waterloo – We are thanking God for bringing Pastor Wes into leadership at Waterloo, and asking for God’s grace to be with him as he and his family adjust to a new life in Waterloo. We are praising God for the young man Levi and his participation in the body at Waterloo, and asking God to use Grace Waterloo for reaching souls in the area. We are praying for the Awanas program in Waterloo, and for Sandy Clyde who has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, as well as for Pastor Wes and family as they travel to and from Cincinnati as necessary for their adoption process. May God be in the midst of the details and make everything go smoothly.

Riverwood – Pray for Pastor Erin Bird and the establishment of elders at Riverwood, that as God brings this team together he would grant them wisdom as they seek to reach those who are spiritually disconnected. May God grand both numerical and spiritual growth.

Prairie Lakes – We are praising God for healthy churches in Mitchell County, Chickasaw and Black Hawk County and praying for the discipleship efforts in Osage. God has blessed the New Hampton campus with a building and we are seeking God to reach the students through the college ministry at UNI.

Denver – Denver church is praising God for how he is working through the youth group. Thankful for Dan & Sarah and their passion for ministry at the High School. We are asking for God to help in leadership vision and leadership development. Also asking God for wisdom and direction considering Church planting possibilities in Readlyn, Fairbank, Tripoli, Janesville, Clarksville & Sumner.

We loved hearing from our sister churches in the area and were encouraged that God is clearly at work in and all around us, and it was great to get to know one another better and eat together. Please continue to lift up these prayer requests over the next few months as we expectantly wait for the Lord to answer them in his grace.

I’d also like to offer a personal praise to God for the congregation here at Grace Baptist in Waverly. He has been so good to us through you. You have been like Christ in your hospitality, affection, and help, as we have had a very busy month getting into new rhythms here in Waverly. May God be praised for his goodness to us through you all!

May grace and peace be multiplied to you!
