October Prayer Requests for Living by Design Ministries

Pray for the Storyteller Study Participants: Please pray for every soul that chooses to participate in our new 4-week Parables study, that they would sit at the feet of the ultimate Storyteller and soak up the wisdom and hope His words provide. Pray that people would embrace the message of this study and share it with their friends. Pray that every Bible study e-mail we send gets received by the people who signed up to receive it. And pray that God would work powerfully to give our readers comprehend complex spiritual truths and respond in obedience.

Pray for Our Ministry Team: Over the next month, our team will be working hard to spread the message of this new Bible study. Please pray for health, peace, and protection over every team member. We also ask for prayer over the technology systems we use to deliver our Bible studies. We have experienced unexplainable technological errors in the past and, as I said above, we need to pray that nothing stands in the way of this message going out far and wide. Pray for our Pastoral Council, Leadership Team, and writing/technical staff as we work tirelessly to get this study into the hands of everyone who wishes to participate. Pray also that the Lord would continue to provide for the financial needs of our ministry in encouraging and unexpected ways.

Personal Prayer Request from Sarah Koontz: It takes so much energy to write and release a new study, and I'm feeling a bit depleted. I am also preparing for our year-end fundraiser and writing part two of the parables study. My husband's job is very demanding right now, and the girls and I are struggling to adjust to our fall homeschool schedule. Pray that God would protect our family life and keep us all healthy and robust. I've been resting and doing all I can to refill my reservoirs, and I sincerely appreciate your prayer support in this season of pouring out.

In his book titled Prayer, John Bunyan defines prayer as “A sincere, sensible, affectionate pouring out of the heart or soul to God, through Christ, in the strength and assistance of the Holy Spirit, for such things as God has promised, or according to his word, for the good of the church, with submission in faith to the will of God.” God promises to hear us when we pray (1 Jn. 5:15), and even when we can’t find the right words, Jesus Christ intercedes on our behalf (Rom. 8:34). Our prayers don’t have to be eloquent or elaborate, they just need to be faithful and heartfelt.
