Pray with us

Posted on Posted in 2009, Ministry News

We want to invite you to pray with us about a ministry opportunity. We have no idea what God is going to do, and at this point, have just clearly felt led to pray for the next 30 days. It’s kind of a “way out there” thing, so we would love to have you pray with us.

About a year ago, a store in our neighborhood went out of business. It is a building where the store is on the first floor and living space is on the second and third floor. At first, we thought that just the store closed, but for some time it has been evident that the building is vacant.

A couple times I (Peter) have thought, “Hey, that would be a cool place to create a ‘space’ for ministry,” but have never pursued it. Now, I have confidence that God is calling me to active prayer. It may just be a faith check to respond to his leading. It may be something more. I don’t know.

Here is what the store/home looks like.

Pretty cool! It is located on a main street in a row of similar stores. Here is what it looks like from the backside.

So, will you join us in prayer over the next month? This is what we are praying:

  1. God, tell us why this building is on our hearts.
  2. Do you want us to use this for your kingdom? (We are not big on buildings as a philosophy of ministry, yet this could provide a ‘space’ for creative outreach. Especially since religious buildings are not allowed in our section of the city.)
  3. Is it for sale? (We have no idea, and searches on the net have yielded no info. Nor do we know how much it would cost. For now, we will just pray.)
  4.  God, open or close the doors according to your will and give us ears to hear your voice.

So this our prayer request. Thanks for joining with us. If you hear God say something to you, please shoot us an email.
