European Peoples season of prayer

Stats show that about 99% of people across Europe aren’t yet born again believers, but God is moving, things are happening.  There is hope in Christ even when things seem to be pretty crazy in this world!

Month of Prayer Day 29: Lost Who Haven’t Heard

Cry out to the Lord for the many across this nation who’ve not heard the gospel–sadly, a large number have no local church that teaches biblical truth and have no born-again believer in their life. Ask that God will send someone with the message of Life, that they will repent and begin a daily walk with Jesus.  Intercede for them, that they will come into community with other believers who can disciple them, and that healthy new churches will be birthed in towns and villages all across the country.

“How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? 15 And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: ‘How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!’” Romans 10: 14, 15

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 25: Daniel and Rachel Block

Today let’s pray for Daniel & Rachel Block and their young son, Nehemiah, who moved to Hungary in September of 2018 to serve as church planters.  The Blocks currently live in Székesfehérvár, where they are studying the very interesting and difficult Hungarian language. Székesfehérvár on Wikipedia

  • Pray for diligence in language study for Daniel and Rachel, specifically that they would learn to share the gospel quickly and effectively in Hungarian.
  • They are scheduled to take their first exam (A-2) in December of this year. This will be the real test of their language studies, so please be praying now that they would pass and move on to the next phase of language study.
  • Also lift up the Blocks as they begin the process of finding a kindergarten for Nehemiah to go to in September. Pray they would find the right one and that Nehemiah would flourish in this next season.

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.
