Prayer Wall

Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need. – Hebrews 4:16

May Prayer Requests for Living by Design Ministries

Pray for our Fundraising Efforts: During our Spring Fundraiser (May 10-31, 2022), we hope to engage 40 new recurring donors and an additional $500 per month in funding ($6000 per year) to support our growing ministry. Because God has called us to serve His Kingdom purposes by cultivating this free Bible study ministry, we must actively seek out people who are willing to stand in the gap and cover the cost for our Bible study participants. Pray that the Lord would lead people to give generously and bless them abundantly for their participation in this important work

Pray for our Ministry Staff: Please pray for our whole team as we recover from a tiring Bible study launch and begin to prepare for our Spring Fundraiser. Pray for protection from attacks of the enemy, health for families and loved ones, and endurance as we run the race God has called us to. Pray for Sarah Koontz as she continues to search for Christian professionals to assist her with certain aspects of the ministry. We've made some progress in this area but definitely haven't found the right people to meet every need. We are trusting Jehovah Jireh to provide.

Pray for the Koontz Family: Continued prayers are requested for Sarah and her two daughters as they wrap up the homeschooling year and Sarah's spring seminary semester. Prayer is also requested for Sarah's husband, Ryan, as he is carrying a lot of extra responsibilities at work and hoping to fill some open positions on his team soon. This is such a busy season of life for them (raising two teenagers) and every day is filled with unexpected obstacles and unique challenges. Pray that they would have unity and wisdom as they seek to glorify God with their lives.

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.
