August Prayer Requests for Living by Design Ministries

✔ Summer Bible Study: Please pray for the 2,300+ participants who are working through the Pray Like David Study this summer. Specifically that they would see all the Bible study e-mails, take time to read and meditate on the truths they contain, understand and apply what they've learned, and share the study with their friends and family. We pray that our Bible study community would help people find joy and peace in God's presence, experience conviction of sin, and be transformed and equipped to share their faith with others.

✔ Website Redesign: Due to a system update with our WordPress website, our team will be rebuilding our website this summer. We will be transitioning to an upgraded web host, site theme, and e-mail provider. We will also be optimizing our landing pages and re-writing much of our overview content for the ministry. Please pray for everyone involved, as this is a massive undertaking.

✔ Financial Needs: Less programming and outreach during the summer months often means a drop in giving. Please pray that the Lord would continue to lead people to give generously and faithfully provide for the needs of this ministry.

✔ Direction for the Future: In the upcoming weeks, our ministry teams will be auditing our ministry systems and procedures. We will be considering what actions we can take to improve our efficiency, communication, and productivity. We ask for your prayers of protection, wisdom, and direction as we walk through this evaluation process. Ask the Lord to give us clear direction as we make important decisions about ministry health and sustainability.

✔ Rest & Health: We've released 5 Free Bible Studies in the past 18 months and our team is showing signs of fatigue. Sarah Koontz is struggling with some chronic health issues and other members of our team are experiencing trials in many areas of their lives. We are all committed to this cause and passionate about this work, but we also want to make sure we take care of ourselves (emotionally, spiritually, physically) so we can continue to serve for many years to come. Please pray that this summer would be a time of rest and restoration for our staff and volunteers. Specifically, ask the Lord to give us all a sweet season of spiritual refreshment as we draw near to Him and seek His direction for the future.

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.
