"With all prayer and petition pray at all times in the Spirit, and with this in view, be on the alert with all perseverance and petition for all the saints, and pray on my behalf, that utterance may be given to me in the opening of my mouth, to make known with boldness the mystery of the gospel" - Ephesians 6:18-19

"praying at the same time for us as well, that God will open up to us a door for the word, so that we may speak forth the mystery of Christ" - Colossians 4:3

"Finally, brethren, pray for us that the word of the Lord will spread rapidly and be glorified, just as it did also with you" - 2 Thessalonians 3:1

First and foremost, please pray.  Pray for myself, the missionaries in Thessaloniki, Network Connection church, those in authority, the city of Thessaloniki, the nation of Greece and the body of Christ throughout the Balkans.  Pray that we would be strengthened and endued with power by the Holy Spirit to proclaim the good news to the lost, hurting, and broken with a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, patience and love.  Pray that we would be granted divine favor and protection; as well as, open doors to speak the word of God in power, love and in the Holy Spirit with full conviction.  Pray that the Lord would grant us a spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him and that our love would abound still more and more in real knowledge and all discernment, that we would approve the things that are excellent. Pray for unity within the immediate and greater body of Christ; for the establishing of new relationships and the strengthening of existing ones in Christ Jesus.  Pray that we be filled with the knowledge of His will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so that we may walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, to please Him in all respects, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God.  Pray that the Lord would supply all of our needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.


"Do not acquire gold, or silver, or copper for your money belts, or a bag for your journey, or even two coats, or sandals, or a staff; for the worker is worthy of his support." - Matthew 10:9-10
