Part of being a church that has church planting in its DNA is learning to pray for church plants. If you’re planning a service this weekend, would you consider including some of the prayer points from Dan and Renae Godden, planting in Wollongong?
On the 25th June our core group got together in Wollongong for the first time to get into God’s word and think into what its going to look like to be a church who exist for the glory of God’s name. It was encouraging and exciting as we ‘eyeballed’ each other for the first time, but also challenging as we confronted God’s word.
– Praise God for his grace in providing some fantastic people who have agreed to serve God with us in this new work. Particularly those who are moving from some distance into Wollongong. Pray for them that all the stresses that go on with moving away from friends and family wouldn’t be too great a burden.
– Pray that we’d be wise in putting together all the bits and pieces that go into being a legal organisation (budget, constitution, insurance etc).
– Give thanks to God for a fruitful time and good relationships begun with a bunch of church leaders in Wollongong. Praise God for the work of faithful churches in the Wollongong region in the past and pray that he would pour out his spirit and save many in the region in the future.
– Pray that as we set up for next year, the costs can be met and that partnerships with supporters and churches can be made into the future for the sake of the gospel going to those who haven’t heard it.
If you’d like to get more information and prayer points regarding the Godden’s church plant, you can email Dan and ask to be added to his supporters list.
