Ideas for prayer

  • Gerry Keener, as our new president, and the Leadership Team, have significant responsibilities as they lead EMM into the future. Pray that the Holy Spirit will lead them in this season.

  • Our new Mission Team director, Lorri Bentch, has begun planning for and directing the global mission strategy of EMM. Pray for strength, wisdom, and a heart ready to follow God’s leading.

  • EMM’s plans to move to the 450 North Prince Street facility are still in progress. Please pray that God’s will be done as we prepare to make this transition.

  • EMM is transitioning from having an events coordinator to utilizing an events team consisting of several EMM staff. Pray for success and grace for the team members as they add this responsibility to their schedules. Pray that the events will accomplish the intended purpose of furthering the Kingdom of God.

  • As Jesus stated, the harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Pray that the Lord of the harvest will send workers to bring the good news of His Kingdom to a troubled world. Pray that as God prompts people to serve, they could connect with us and find the place God is sending them.

  • EMM is looking to hire 2 to 3 more young adults to staff our summer Kingdom Teams. Pray for the right people to join the team.

  • We have workers serving around the world. Pray for them by name as you are led to pray.
