Praying Together

Psalm 64:10 (NIV)

The righteous will rejoice in the LORD
and take refuge in him;
all the upright in heart will glory in him!

Thank you for praying with us. It is only through the Spirit’s work in and through us that disciples will grow and prove faithful.

Praise and prayer:

  • Pray for us as we adjust to our new home in Houten, get settled in and meet new neighbors. Pray as we explore new ministry opportunities.
  • Pray for ETF staff, as they work diligently to prepare for the research visitation in the next three months. ETF’s recognition and part of its funding depend on this.
