Will You Pray With Us?


When we were in Japan last year, I’m telling you, I could feel the prayers of our faith family back home. We were keenly aware that God was with us and I know a large part of that was due to your prayers. And we were so blessed by that.

A few Sundays ago our church was going over Acts 13. Specifically verses 2 and 3.

“As they were worshiping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, “Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.”  Then after they had fasted, prayed, and laid hands on them, they sent them off.” -CSB

These verses really stuck out to me and have been on my mind ever since. I love how they fasted together, prayed together, and laid on hands to send them off!

It reminded me all over again of the importance of prayer in this season of preparation. As well as fasting and preparing spiritually for God’s ministry in Japan.

In the moment we’ve been immersed in the details of preparing to sell the house and what to keep and what not to keep. Packing, and then repacking all the things my helpful little three year old decided to unpack and play with.

I’ve found myself forgetting to let my knees hit the floor over the whole reason we’re doing this. Between planning, packing, and preparing I’ve missed the most important of all: praying! Of course we pray often for Japan. But I’m talking the earnest seeking of the Lord on the behalf of the Japanese people, this journey, and our little family that’s about to undergo quite a few big changes to life as we know it.

As a family, we’ve recommitted to not let ourselves get too busy in the details and forget to lay them all at our Father’s feet. To just be with Him in the midst of all the preparation that goes into an overseas move.

If you’d like to pray with us we would be so grateful! Prayer is incredibly powerful and we know this transition and mission will go so much more smoothly if it’s covered in prayer.

Will you partner with us in prayer?
