Month of Prayer Day 27: Salvation of the Lost Who are Delaying

Today let’s pray for the salvation of those who’ve heard the gospel but not yet said “yes.”  Some do not understand the message, but others are hanging onto control of their old life and aren’t willing to yield to the Lord.

  • Pray with urgency that walls of resistance will come tumbling down, and that today will be the day of salvation!

“I tell you, now is the time of God’s favor, now is the day of salvation.”  2 Corinthians 6:2b (NIV)

Month of Prayer Day 26: Tiszafüred Church Plant

“Baptist Prayer Room” sign with meeting times — this was on the building at the time we were helping lead the group

Today’s prayer request is for the Tiszafüred church plant, a part of the Karcag Baptist church circle in eastern Hungary.  As you pray for this small group, now led entirely by nationals, ask for continued growth both in numbers and in spiritual growth.  Ask the Lord to strengthen them and guide them in how to reach out to their families and community with the love of Christ.

Month of Prayer Day 24: National Believers & Partnering Organizations

Pray with us today for the national believers, churches, and partnering organizations we are blessed to work alongside. We’re so very thankful for the precious Hungarian brothers and sisters in Christ who allow us to serve beside them in the field, and who are so gracious to us as visitors in their country.  We’re also very blessed by the workers from other organizations who encourage us and partner with us in the missionary task — what a joy it is to serve together!

  • Give praise to God for how His work is advanced as His children serve Him in love and unity of purpose.
  • Pray that the Lord will guide, encourage, and provide for those who are faithfully serving Him.  Many national believers are ministering at great personal sacrifice on the part of themselves and their families.

Month of Prayer Day 23: Relationship-building

Real, loving relationships are so important!

  • Pray today for all of our missionary families as we build new relationships in our communities and continue to strengthen old ones.
  • Ask that we will be good listeners and true friends, and that our language and cultural skills will keep growing so that we can be good neighbors and truly share life with those around us.
  • Pray that God will lead us to “persons of peace” in neighborhoods who will welcome us and the gospel witness we bring, willingly serving as a gateway relationship into their family, neighborhood, or community.

Month of Prayer Day 16: Mercy Ministries

Please pray with us for Mercy Ministries work in Hungary. Multiple organizations and churches see the need to be more effective in reaching out to people and families with special needs.  Our goal is to partner with as many other believers as possible to help make this happen. We wish to do this primarily through personal relationships with like-minded Christians.

IMB Budapest Team members Monte and April Baker and family are currently serving in Mercy Ministries.  In addition to their own work, they are researching possibilities and discussing with various organizations how to best partner together in future work.

  • Pray for those across the nation who are hurting and need to experience God’s love in special ways, and for believers as they seek to minister to them.

“And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds…”  Hebrews 10:24 (NIV)
