MONTHLY PARTNER PRAYER FOCUS
Jesus commands his followers to make disciples of the nations and One of the countries where we partner is the Czech Republic with Frydlant Church. They are our brothers and sisters in faith!
Czech has been hit especially hard with COVID so they are asking for our prayers about impact it has been having as well as a few other needs. Beginning March 1, 2021 and continuing for the next three weeks, authorities in the Czech Republic will restrict the free movement of people throughout the country to control the spread of COVID-19. The 3-week lockdown measures are part of the recently declared State of Emergency, which is in effect until March 28, 2021.
Let’s pray for them together.
- Pray that this virus would stop now, in Jesus’ name! Pray for the sick to be made well.
- Pray for the Frydlant Church leadership, for wisdom, as they seek a new pastor and the couple who is currently considering this church as their home.
- Pray that the Frydlant Church would continue to be the light of Christ, with eyes open to the needs of their community. Pray for ourselves to prepare our hearts to go when the opportunity opens once again.

A Portland, Oregon native and reluctantly recovering hipster, Jered received a masters degree from Western Seminary and planted a church in the City of Roses for the last ten years. Being middle-aged it may seem as though several years are unaccounted for in his narrative, but they were mostly spent being a youth pastor, associate pastor, enjoying being married to his favorite person and raising three beautiful girls. He doesn't get what the big deal is about Portillos, but has acquired a taste for deep dish pizza, loves the church and loves motivating people to live transformed lives in Jesus.
