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,
Thank you for praying for those who participated in the prayer walk on August 9. And for each of you who joined in the prayer walking of your neighborhoods - thank you.

From SED President Emeritus Art Scherer
Sunday For The City was a first step in reaching out to the Sandtown community, not far from the heart of the recent Baltimore disturbances. While those with younger legs went prayer walking and listening to folks in the neighborhood, I stayed at our home base to greet those who came by for food, entertainment, and conversation. ---- One of many learnings: When I would ask children 10 - 12 years old if they would like something to eat, they didn't ask for cookies or snack foods. Most asked for FRUIT and truly enjoyed the grapes, oranges, apples that we had. The inner city is often a food desert. Cookies and snacks are at every corner store, but fruit may be miles away.

Continue to pray with me for the renewal of our cities and the growing presence of God's kingdom throughout the Southeastern District.
One way that God is calling us to action is through the opportunities to partner in the Ethiopian communities of our Southeastern District. In the past months, Virginia Evangelical Mekane Yesus Congregation of Annandale VA was chartered and Grace Ethiopian, Springfield VA is
close to chartering. (A chartered congregation is recognized by the LCMS as a member of the Synod and listed on the roster of the Synod as a congregation.)
In addition, the following ministries are registered as new church starts:
*Ethiopian Evangelical Mission Mekane Yesus LCMS, Cary, NC
*Oromo Evangelical Luth. Mission of North Carolina, Cary, NC
*Shalom Ethiopian Evangelical Luth. Mission, Alexandria, VA
New work in Baltimore, Washington DC, Maryland, and Northern Virginia continues to emerge as ministry resources and support are gathered for new communities.
God has also guided Rev. Dr. Yared Halche to partner with us as a member of the District staff to help congregations who desire to open their hearts and space to welcome an immigrant community.
As you pray for mission work these days, pray for:
  • Rev. Halche as his work grows throughout the District
  • New opportunities to reach new people with the Gospel
  • The new Ethiopian church starts in Cary, Alexandria, Baltimore, Washington
  • And the renewal of our cities, communities, and neighborhoods.
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.
