We are fully aware that what we are doing needs to be empowered by the living and active presence of God. He must be in all we do. We also realize that we will be in the depths of enemy territory simply because we are involved in God’s greatest loves – His bride the church and those who do not yet know about His love for them. Spiritual warfare will be a big reality that we will have to face. However, we are comforted in knowing that God is already active in the at – risk communities we are called to serve. Through prayer we can join with Him to do His works.

As for general prayer requests, they are as follows:


1. The Mission Of Connect City

Pray to God to provide for all of our needs so we can be empowered through Christ to serve in His mission. Ask God to provide funding, volunteers, church partners, etc. to work with us in accomplishing the mission of God. Pray to the Holy Spirit to empower Connect City and the unique expressions of church we plant wherever we serve. Ask God to work through us in developing a movement of young adults who are sold out for Jesus and his mission. Also, pray for our involvement in other countries as we hope to spread this missional movement globally.

2. The Leadership Of Connect City 

Pray that God will work through the staff as they oversee Connect City. Pray for Rev. Colin McCartney as he provides leadership of Connect City. Pray for our church planters – Jordan Thoms and Judith McCartney as they lead their unique expressions of church. Pray for Jon Folkeringa as he heads up our youth ministries.  Ask God to  guide the Connect City team as they lead this ministry. Pray safety over their lives and their families. Ask God to empower them as they live surrendered lives to His will.

3. The Unique Expressions Of Church And Communities They serve

Pray that God will grant favour on Connect City and the unique expressions of church we have started. Pray for the communities we serve. Ask God to provide us safety and resources to bless the unique expressions of church we birth as well as the churches we work with.


One of the great tools we have found helpful in developing our prayer life is The Book Of Common Prayer. It is now available online  at – Feel free to use it as a guide in your prayer time alone with Jesus and when it states “Pray For Others” please pray for us!!!
