Here are the latest prayer points from Pete Hughe’s Soma Church plant. If you’re planning a service for this weekend, think of adding some of the prayer points below. Praying about church planting is all part of being a congregation with church planting as part of its DNA:
As we look forward to the next part of the year we can see God has lots of good things in plan for us. But we also can see we need His help.
We will run our members course again this term with new people wanting to join our community. I am excited about the number of people who are using Soma to investigate Christianity and Jesus. Please pray they keep coming and make the decision to follow Jesus.
We also have enough money to start paying Karl, one of our support staff, not just the $50 a week he was asking for but more like $100. We are also being to work on our first ‘boot camp’/ one day training conference for Gospel Community leaders for people who are looking to plant one or help people plant one in the next few years.
– Thank God for the way he has provided for us so far.
– Please pray that we would continue to raise not just the money we need, but money that will help fund our evangelistic strategies like our Gospel Communities.
– Please pray we would make the most of being a church meeting in a shopping centre, especially over the summer.
– Please pray that we would continue to be a community changed and shaped by God and His Gospel.
