Friends – thank you for joining us in prayer!

One of Stadia’s values is CHILDREN.  This month, please join us in praying for children as they head back to school – children in your family, in your neighborhood, in your church, and around the world.

We won’t stop praying until every child has a church!

Previous Requests

July 2022

I pray that your summer is off to a great start, and I hope that you are getting some relaxing downtime with family, friends and God.

This July, I ask that you pray that our church planters in the United States and around the world would take time to rest and relax.  Post-pandemic there is an enormous amount of turnover and burnout amongst church planters.  Jesus said, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28), would you pray for our church planters to find rest this summer?

We won’t stop praying until every child has a church!

April 2022

I am so grateful for your prayers for Stadia, our partners, and our church planters.

April 17th is Easter, Resurrection weekend. We have numerous churches that will be launching Easter Sunday. Would you pray for those churches, that God would bring just the right people as they gather together for the very first time? For our existing church plants in the United States and around the world, would you pray for them as they head into Easter? Would you lift up those church planters and all of our partners as they prepare to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ?

Friends, I deeply appreciate your prayers. Our churches will be blessed beyond measure this Easter and it happens because you are unleashing God’s power through your prayers.

And we won’t stop praying until every child has a church!

June 2022

May 2022

Thank you for being faithful prayer partners!
 
I have an urgent prayer request!  On May 9th I will be leading a team of 9 people to Nepal to trek to Everest Basecamp.  Our goal is to raise $600,000 for church planting throughout the United States and around the world.  We’ll be flying to Nepal and then spending 18 days trekking from 10,000 feet of altitude to Everest Basecamp at 18,000 feet of altitude and back.  Would you pray for the safety of everyone on our team and that we will meet our goal of $600,000.  On the trek we’ll be meeting with some of our Nepalese church planters.  Would you pray for that gathering, that it will be a special time for us to be a blessing to them and a time for us to learn from them.
 
June 5th we are having a day of prayer for church planting.  Please sign up to join us to pray for church planters around the world.

March 2022

Women in Church Planting
March is the celebration of Women’s History Month throughout the United States and I think it’s appropriate that we celebrate women involved in church planting and specifically that we pray for them this month.

I think of my friend Lumar Vargas, a Hispanic woman planting a church in downtown Cleveland Ohio. I think of my friend Valarie Grimes, an African American woman planting a church in Savannah, GA. Women are in support roles, lead roles, and in ministry in every imaginable way. Would you join me in praying for women in church planting, that they would thrive this month?

Exponential
In the middle of March, Stadia will be involved in the Exponential conference where thousands of church planters will be gathered from around the world to celebrate all that God is doing. Will you pray that it will be a wonderful experience for Stadia and all of those who God has entrusted us to impact?

I appreciate every one of you and I promise that we won’t stop praying until every child has a church.
