Prayer and Praise

Praise: Athletes

I love this picture of Albany, Jordan, me, Lucy, and Megan at our Christmas brunch, but it doesn’t come close to capturing the 20+ athletes that the Lord has been continuing to surface across the city for me to work with this year. Would you join me in praising the Lord for the faith steps Albany, Lauren and Margaret are taking to share with teammates and friends? Would you praise Jesus for Lucy who has been trusting the Lord for reconciliation in Friendships? And would you praise the Lord for Mireille who has been sharing the gospel with her equestrian teammates?

Prayer: Jacksonville

Over the next two weeks we’re taking 40 students from schools across Boston to Florida to work with my friend Debbie who works with Cru Inner City in Jacksonville. In the morning we’ll be doing manual labor and in the afternoons we’ll be playing with kids and running carnival/picnics at some housing projects to invite kids to a summer camp. Half of the students coming with us on the trip do not yet know Jesus, so we think it’s an incredible opportunity to share Christ in the context of community. Would you pray for our non-Christian friends, for the people we’ll be serving, and for the trip overall? Brian and I are taking our kids too, so pray for great opportunities to reach out and serve as a family – and for travelling mercies!

Prayer: Musicians at Berklee/BoCo, and NEC

Brian has had so much fun meeting with a small group of musicians at some of the incredible music schools and conservatories in Boston. It has been amazing to watch them start to share their faith with their friends and consider how art and performance and the gospel intersect. Over the next few Saturdays, one of our students, Madeline, is hosting dinners for non-Christian friends. Would you pray the Gospel is clear to these students?

Praise: Emmanuel Freshmen

We’ve been praying for years that a movement would launch and grow at Emmanuel College. We’ve been celebrating this new group all year, but we’re especially excited that there’s a whole group of freshmen joining us in Jacksonville. Would you pray a powerful week for them?

We are so thankful for each of you. If you ever wonder if you’re making a difference for the Lord… wonder no longer! Your prayers and support mean that students in Boston and beyond get to hear about Jesus. Thank you so much for praying for and with us.

Loving our Adventurous Lord,
