Month of Prayer Day 18: Brad & Karen, Research Team

Dublin, Ireland photoToday let’s pray for Brad, Karen and family, who serve on the IMB Research Team.  The family is based in Budapest but conduct research in many countries to find what areas need additional Christian work.

In addition to lifting them up as a family, they ask that you pray for underserved language minorities in Dublin, Ireland and Lithuania; ask that the Lord would continue to reveal to the researchers what areas need additional Christian work.

Month of Prayer Day 14: Baptist Academy English Classes

Today let’s pray for the English classes IMB personnel are helping to teach at the Baptist Academy in Budapest.  They are taking place Tuesday and Wednesday evenings through the end of May, and are a partnership ministry with the Baptist Theological Seminary.

  • Give thanks for this opportunity to help students prepare for language exams required for graduation, and to serve alongside some very hardworking Hungarian language teachers. This is allowing our workers to spend time both with Hungarians preparing for ministry and also with other community members who need help with their language skills. Good spiritual conversations have been taking place from week to week.
  • Pray that the Kingdom will be built up, and that strengthened relationships with the Baptist Union and its next generation will lead to valuable partnership ministry throughout the coming years.

Month of Prayer Day 12: Agóra Corvin church

Pray for the Agóra Corvin church in Budapest.  Planted by the Shaws and Pastor Dávid Hamar, the church is now totally Hungarian-led and serves as mother church to the Agóra Gellért church plant.  Pray for Pastor Dávid and his family, the members, and those in the area to whom they are ministering.  Ask that the Lord will grant them growth, continued unity, vision, deep discipleship, and outreach to the lost.  Ask that they will not grow weary in well doing.
