Please pray that as a church we would continue to be rooted and grounded in Christ.
Pray for wisdom as we consider new geographic loactions to begin new churches.
Pray for continued growth and maturity within the Nisshin Christ Church so that we may reach Japan and the world for Christ.
Pray for Godly people in the lives of our children that will come alongside and shepherd in ways that they affirm us as parents.
