Ryan Braught is a church planter who’s put many posts on this website. The church that he is planting, Veritas, is holding its first regular worship service this Sunday!

Here’s what Ryan wrote a few days ago for prayer requests:

1. Launch Sunday: Pray that God would be drawing people to come to the Launch Sunday. Pray that all the various details that need to be done this week will get done. Pray that everything would come together and that Sunday morning at 10:45 AM would be an amazing experience. Pray for those who come who are “true prospects” that they would feel welcomed, loved, and experience God and that they would want to return.

2. CRU: I will be going to Elizabethtown College tonight to attend CRU (Campus Crusade) and to hopefully share a little bit about Veritas as well as hand out Brochures and CD’s. Pray for a fruitful time of relationship building, sharing, and networking. Pray that God may speak to some of the CRU group about being a part of Veritas.

3. Jobs: This has been an area of concern for the past few weeks. As of right now I still don’t have a part time job, and my wife hasn’t found anything in the teaching field (she works now as a substitute and at Sylvan…but would love to find a part time teaching job in a local school district). Pray that God would bring about the right job(s) and that we would have the patience and the trust to wait upon him. Pray also that I would be assertive in seeking out employment. I’ll be making a call today to a person who owns a new café that will be coming to Lancaster. Pray for that conversation (if it happens). Pray for doors to open for either one of us, or the both of us.

4. Prayer Vigil: We are hosting a prayer vigil this coming Saturday September 12 from 7 AM to 7 PM (EST). This is where you sign up to pray for Veritas for one hour wherever you are. All you have to do is to reply to this e-mail letting me know what time you want to pray for us and I will send you another list of prayer request, praises, and ideas of how to use the 1 hour.

5. Finances: So far we feel that we are in a pretty good spot with finances. We have, at this point, enough finances (if we stick to budget) to cover until January. Please continue to pray for us that finances will continue to come together. Pray for the congregations that we have spoken to about partnering with us financially. Pray for other congregations to step up and support us. Pray that God would be glorified in the area of finances.

This week is exciting and there is a lot to do (write a sermon, get a bunch of stuff, set up, finish painting the Veritots room, etc… Pray that I won’t be so busy that I forget to stop and pray and seek God’s guidance.

If you’re not on Ryan’s prayer list, I would invite you to join with many who are praying for these requests. Let’s pray for God to do a mighty work through Ryan and the people that God has called to partner with Ryan in this effort!

Blessings to you all,
