Prison Fellowship invites you to join us in praying for the work being done in prisons throughout the country, and for the lives being touched by this ministry.
This week, join us in remembering the pain and sorrow of separation that is acutely felt by those who are incarcerated and the children and significant others that they have left behind. Please pray that these families will find a way to express their love for one another, and that marriages in particular will hold strong despite overwhelming odds.
Prison Fellowship’s Prayer Team offers volunteers the opportunity to take the needs of prisoners before God during regularly scheduled intervals. To learn more about the prayer team, and how you can participate, click here.

From Covenant Baptist Church, the Church Plant in Clarksville, TN
We thank our Lord for your partnership with us in the work of the gospel here in Clarksville, and for your prayers on our behalf before the throne of grace.
Our Lord Jesus continues to sustain and grow us as a church body. Again we were saddened to see two military families relocated and one non-military family move due to a job relocation at the end of last year, yet we were thankful for the time that we had with these families. At the same time, the Lord has brought to us four military families and four non-military families that have been regularly attending our services. Give thanks to God with us, and pray that these families might join with us in church membership.
The Lord has also been at work bringing salvation to the lost in our midst. Last year, a young man moved to Clarksville to live with his father who is a member at our church. Through the preaching of the Word and being involved in the life of the body, the Lord brought him to saving faith. He was baptized this past October, and he met some of you down at the Lakeshore Project in January. The Lord has also been at work in the heart of a young woman with a Jewish background. In my report last year, I mentioned that I was meeting with her and some others to work through the Gospel of Mark. She has come to profess faith in Jesus Christ, and will be baptized in the next month, Lord-willing. Pray for these new Christians who are young in their faith to grow and be established in the grace of the Lord.
We would also request prayer for wisdom and grace as we continue to reach out into the community here with the gospel. We are looking for ways to take the gospel to the local college campus here and hope to start an evangelistic bible study there soon. We are also planning to have a booth at the Rivers and Spires Festival in downtown Clarksville in April. We continue to reach out to co-workers, neighbors, and friends. Please pray for the Lord to give us boldness and grace to faithfully proclaim the gospel, and that He would bring many to saving faith in Jesus.
One last request is that you would pray for the continued formation of the church body here in Clarksville. We have been working through officer training for the last 10 months, and ask that you would pray for the Lord to raise up elders and deacons in our midst. Our hope and plan as a church body is to officially constitute as a local church this coming May. Please pray for the Lord to give us the wisdom we need to make the final preparations before we constitute. Thank you again, brethren, for your prayers.

From Sovereign Grace Baptist Church, Ontario, California
Pastors Steve Marquedant and Jeff Massey
Please pray for a radio opportunity that Pastor Jeff Massey has each Friday from 5:05-6pm Pacific time. He has an hour long program called “Redeemer Radio” that airs on a local secular station, KCAA 1050 AM, based out of Loma Linda. He also receives twenty 1 minute promotional ads for the program each week. He is structuring it as a talk show (not call in) with local Reformed Baptist Pastors as guests discussing doctrinal issues. Steve M. was his first guest and will be a guest again this week on the topic of “The Scriptures”. Future guests already scheduled are Dr. Jim Renihan, Jason Walter, Chris Beamer, and others.
This is part of our church’s effort to plant a Reformed Baptist Church in Redlands, California, about 30 miles west of Ontario. Pastor Jeff will be the primary preaching pastor in this new work with a goal of starting Sunday AM worship this September. A weekly Bible study already meets at the University of Redlands campus.
More about the church plant and a link to the podcast (available 24/7) of the weekly program “Redeemer Radio” is available at the following site: www.RedeemerReformedBaptistChurch.com . We thank the Lord for this unusual opportunity and invite you to check out the podcast and let us know what you think.
