Seeking God’s Blessing for Our Year of Urgency
Praying for the Garretts

  1. Please pray for this next 12 months for us as we work hard to be in Romania by this time next year.  Pray for:
  • Courage to “market” ourselves and our mission
  • Wisdom for the most effective methods to raise up partners
  • Churches to partner with us
  • Churches to allow us to come share
  • Our monthly promises must be at 67% by April 15th
  • Our specific plans to be finalized soon
  • Miraculous payoff of our loans to continue
  • Our dedication to practice Romanian
  • Our endurance to fight off Spiritual warfare

 2.  Please pray for the country of Romania.  Pray for:

  • The Christians
    • Nominalism, legalism, hypocrisy, and antagonism are heavy distractions among the churched – Pray for broken hearts
    • Very little practical ministry used to help community needs
    • The Unreached
      • 7000 villages without an evangelical presence
      • Thousands enslaved by prostitution/trafficking, religious ritual/tradition, Communist/Socialist worldview

 3.  Please pray for us as a family.  Pray for:

  • Our Spiritual growth, individually and as a family
  • Our family unit – Our marriage, our parenting, our family example to others
  • Our relationships with others
  • Our physical needs
