Prayer Requests

are shared each month by church planters across the state. Seven of those planters are featured on our website weekly, for specific and intentional prayer.

Day 1 Request: Please pray that God will continue to add to our small group Bible study and open doors in our community so that we can minister to the local individuals.
Planter: Bernard Burney 
Type: African American
Location: Rolesville

Day 2 Request: Please pray the Lord intercedes in keeping open doors in the apartment complex where we do ministry. They are becoming stricter about what we can do evangelistically. Pray that God will soften their hearts and our opportunities to meet people and share the Gospel will continue. 
Planter: Franklin Halstead III
Type: Multi-Ethnic
Location: Fayetteville 

Day 3 Request: We are starting to build relationships with Duke students. Please pray that God gives us favor with them, as many are suffering from isolation and depression! God is opening doors, pray we can capitalize on His favor within the university. 
Planter: Melvin Johnson
Type: Multi-Ethnic
Location: Durham

Day 4 Request: Pray for the community of Pfafftown, NC and the preparation for the harvest God has in store for the church planters in the community.

Day 5 Request: Pray for the Lord to empower our youth ministry. Pray that God equips our newly hired youth pastor to impact lostness through disciplemaking in Edenton and the surrounding areas. 
Planter: AJ Layton

Day 6 Request: Please pray that the Lord will empower our leadership team with boldness to share their faith. Pray for wisdom and obedience as we continue to reach out to family members, friends, co-workers and neighbors. Planter: Emmanuel Ofori-Atta
Type: African American
Location: Charlotte

Day 7 Request: Please pray for the Lord to grant our leadership team and volunteers wisdom, favor and fruit as we transition to two services! This is a huge step for our church but one we must do to reach more people because we are at capacity most Sundays. If all goes as planned we will go to two services starting Sunday, September 13.

Type: Anglo
Location: Yadkinville

Pray for the Lord to call out and send church planters into His harvest fields in North Carolina. Matthew 9:37-38: (37) then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; (38) therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.”
