Prayer Points

Week of July 27

Prayer is the essential work for every real church. We want to encourage you to pray for the needs of the Hunter Street family. This week pray for…

Our church is blessed to have many educators, teachers, and school administrators. Please intercede for these people as they prepare for a new school year. Pray that God would expand their influence and that God would give them many opportunities to share the gospel. Ask God to grant them favor with students and parents.

We have a mission team currently serving in Nebraska. Pray for this team as they share the gospel with an unreached people group. Ask God to give them open doors of opportunity. Pray for safe travel, unity of spirit, and faithfulness to boldly tell the good news!

Pray for an outpouring of God’s spirit on our families that are struggling. Ask God to give his comfort, peace, and wisdom to these families.
