Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful. And pray for us, too, that God may open a door for our message, so that we may proclaim the mystery of Christ. Colossians 4: 2-3.

Dear Mission Prayer Partners,

As we are preparing for the Tending the Flame Conference, I am mindful of the theme "Joy Over One" from Luke 15. In verse 7, we read "I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.". In verse 10, Jesus states: "In the same way, I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.". And in the third parable, the lost son story, Jesus concludes with these words in verse 32: "But we had to celebrate and be glad, because this brother of yours was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found."

There is great joy over one who was lost but who is now found. In these days as we seek to reach the 32 million people of our neighborhoods, it will happen one person at a time. And when that one person comes into the eternal relationship with God, there will be great joy!

Please pray for the work of the entire Southeastern District that members of our congregations, schools, and missions are bold and courageous in sharing the Gospel with one person at a time, praying for that person and engaging them so that the Spirit will fill their hearts with the knowledge of the Lord Jesus.

Pray also for the work of the thirty congregations who are participating in iNeighborhood, that as their members move beyond the walls of the church and into neighborhoods new opportunities for gathering around the Word will increase. We also remember the eight congregations who will be receiving training just prior to Tending the Flame.

And finally, keep Sunday for the City in your prayers. As we encourage all congregations throughout the Southeastern District to prayerwalk in their neighborhoods and cities on Sunday, August 9, we pray especially for the challenges that exist in our cities. We seek peace and hope for those who dwell within our cities, lifting up especially Baltimore and Charleston.

Thank you for your mission prayer support. They are making an eternal difference.

10:02 am Prayers for the Harvest and Workers
Don't forget to set your cell phones alarm/alert to 10:02 a.m. and pray for the Harvest and Workers. Luke 10:2 Jesus told them, "The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field." More than 32 million people within the boundaries of the SED do not know the everyday joys of knowing Jesus. Use us Lord, lead us to serve you in this mission field.
