Would you be so kind as to pray specifically for the following areas of CCEF’s ministry, using Ephesians 1:17 as a springboard for your prayers – that God would give us “the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that [we and those to whom we minister] may know him better”?
• Pray for all members of the Counseling Ministries team as they start a new season, that their relationships with the Lord will be vibrant and growing and that their delight in him would flow naturally into their counseling and administration.
• Pray for Jen, Linda, and Denise as they catch up with intake after a busy summer.
• Pray that God would grant the Customer Service team wisdom as they seek to connect hurting people to relevant resources.
• Pray for Brandon, Jodie, and Sarah as they undertake large-scale projects to improve the accessibility of resources.
• We have raised approximately 80% of what was budgeted thus far this year. Pray for the Lord's continued provision through the generosity of his people. Pray that we would ask humbly, yet boldly, and trust Him to provide.
• Our finance team is just beginning the 2020 budget season. Pray for wisdom, insight, and skill as they work through important details to steward CCEF’s finances well.
• It is our desire to have an impact on the city that is hosting our National Conference. Would you pray that the Lord would bring more people from Birmingham, Alabama to our conference this year? Pray also that we would be a blessing to the men and women who work at the convention center, hotel, and local visitor’s bureau.
• Speaker run-throughs will be held at the end of August. Pray that our conference speakers would find this time profitable and encouraging.
• Pray for the launch of the JBC 33:2 landing in mailboxes soon and for the next issue now underway (the first without David at the helm).
• Pray for Mike Emlet who is taking a writing sabbatical over the next three months to complete a book manuscript and develop other new material. Pray for his focus and productivity.
School of Biblical Counseling
• As the fall semester is on the horizon, please pray for God to continue providing students and returning and new recitation instructors (RIs).
• Pray for everyone on the SBC team (Alasdair, Carly, Laura, Rebecca, Anne, Lynette, Jonathan, and Jordan) to support the RIs, faculty, and students well.
• Pray for wisdom as we seek to connect with many CCEF alumni who desire continued development and growth.
Would you also pray for those we serve? Join us in asking God to give our counselees, students, alumni, conference attendees, journal subscribers, web visitors, financial supporters, and ministry friends the same “Spirit of wisdom and revelation” to know Him better. Thank you for partnering with us in prayer!
