Prayer Requests - Baptisms & Collaboration

February 29, 2020
Thank you for praying for DeepWater Church!  I often forget the importance of asking for prayer from those on this email list, but I know that many of you are faithful and willing to lift up God's work.  That being said, these requests are time sensitive because they are specifically about tomorrow, March 1.  (If you are opening this email after March 1st, no worries, yours prayers are still needed!)

- Baptism Service - Please pray for Raina, Stevie & Amy who will be baptized tomorrow.  Pray for the Holy Spirit to give them encouragement and courage as they publicly profess their faith in Jesus Christ.  I praise God that in the 16 months since launching we have seen 14 people baptized, to God be the Glory!  Each baptism represents a person who has and is being changed by Jesus & so it is important to celebrate by sharing the numbers.  Pray for a boldness for these 3 as they grow in their faith.

- Collaboration - Many church plants rely on the generosity and kindness of other churches, especially in the case of facility use.  We are blessed that St. Mark's Lutheran Church on the Isle of Palms has been and continues to be generous and kind in allowing us to use their building on Sunday afternoons at 5pm.  I am immensely thankful for Pastor Phil and the church family there.
This Sunday we needed a different location for baptism...we need a place to immerse our baptism candidates and the ocean is a little too cold this time of year.  (Although I did think strongly about a polar plunge baptism...which would reveal their true devotion to God, ha ha!)  I praise God for the Isle of Palms Baptist Church (and Pastor Ron Patton) opening up their sanctuary for us to have a worship service that will include baptism, the Lord's supper, singing, preaching and more.  We are hopeful this service may be the beginning of a partnership of two churches in the same denomination choosing to collaborate and work together for greater Kingdom work here on the Islands and beyond - please pray for this opportunity and the Lord's will to be done! 
*If you're local and would like to join us, please do! March 1 @ 5pm - 14 24th Ave, IOP (Isle of Palms Baptist)   

- Who's Your One - Currently the DeepWater faith family is praying for those in our lives that are far from God and not a part of the Christian family.  Pray for the Spirit's love and kindness to flow through us.  Pray for the right words to share with our friends and family that we desire to know Christ.  Pray for boldness and salvation.  This is a work of God and we as a church are asking for a great sense of love for those do not know the forgiveness and grace of Jesus.  

Thank you for reading and praying.  Every Sunday is important, but tomorrow is extra important because of all the Kingdom implications.
With love in Jesus,
