Photo of Gary and Carolyn MillerPray today for Gary and Carolyn Miller, IMB personnel based in the city of Debrecen. (Debrecen on Wikipedia)  Gary serves as Team Leader for the IMB Budapest Team and the Eastern Hungary Team, and Carolyn is the Team Prayer Coordinator.  Ask God to grant them His wisdom in ministry, as well as daily strength, health, and safety as they travel.

Current primary ministries that need your prayer are a church plant in the town of Berekfürdő in partnership with the Karcag Baptist Church, and the continuing development of a gardening outreach ministry, the “Master’s Gardeners” in Debrecen.  (Posts about the Berekfürdő church plant and the gardening program.)

Month of Prayer Day 30: Békásmegyer

Today let’s pray for Békásmegyer, a neighborhood in Budapest’s District III.  Consisting of more than 40,000 people within 2 square miles, there is a real need for a church plant in the area.  IMB Budapest personnel Monte and April Baker and children recently moved to Békásmegyer with the goal of starting a group that will grow into a new church.  Békásmegyer on Wikipedia   /  Posts about Békásmegyer

  • Pray that God will open the doors for a church plant in Békásmegyer.
  • Intercede that the Bakers will find persons of peace that will help open up relationships in the area and national partners to serve alongside in a new ministry there.

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

Pray for IMB Budapest family Trey and Denise Shaw, Bryan, Alexander and Lily. Ask for good health, daily encouragement, wisdom and guidance in life and ministry, and that the Holy Spirit will move in a mighty way in their church planting ministry.  Pray for Bryan in the US in college, and for Alexander and Lily who will also soon be graduating from high school and going on to new things.

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.
