Dr. Doug Witherup
Pray for opportunities to share Christ with and disciple someone. Jesus’ words to us are:
“All authority in Heaven and on Earth has been given to me. Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
Pray for God’s anointing to be on Studio 110 (go to multiply.church and click on “Studio”). Pray that this would be a tool that we could use as a conversation-starter to lead people to Jesus!
Southeastern University Focus
Pastor Kevin Smith Lead Family Life Pastor/SEU Director
Please be in prayer for God’s continued blessing upon the students and faculty of SEU Carolina. Re-opening in the middle of a pandemic has had its challenges, but with God’s help we will continue to meet the challenges at hand. Also please be in prayer for our leadership of SEU Carolina. We are currently on boarding new programs (graduate programs and certificates) and identifying new revenue streams. Please be in prayer that we would have divine moments as we plan and develop these new programs.
Family Life Focus
Pastor Mikayla Ellis, Pastor Justin Simpson
Please join us in prayer for the students and faculty of this month’s featured schools: Carl A. Furr Elementary School, W.R. Odell Elementary School, C.C. Griffin Middle School, and Cox Mill High School. We are praying for these teacher and student bodies to be open for God’s presence; for those who are believers to have boldness to lead their peers in finding life and freedom, and for anointing on the teachers to speak into the next generation. Lastly, please join us as we pray for spiritual leadership to rise up within the family.
Multiply Evangelism Focus
Pastor Marvel Pope
Satan’s plan has always been to steal, kill, and destroy. One of his consistent methods is isolation. He likes to separate us and get us alone so that he can belittle us, lie to us, and bully us into his thoughts instead of what God says about us. This pandemic has surely isolated many people and paralyzed them with fear. This month I feel led to have us pray for those lost souls that are alone and isolated with no hope. Let us pray that God will bring those that have been isolated both physically, mentally, and emotionally to a saving knowledge of Jesus. Pray that those lost and searching will be brought to Jesus. May the Holy Spirit penetrate their minds, hearts, and spirits to reach them and give them hope.

Missions and Outreach Featured Missionary
Derek and Rebecca Van Der Merwe are missionaries preparing to serve in Uganda. It has been quite the time for them as they are still raising funds even during COVID to be on the field, hopefully as soon as the opportunity comes to open to get on the ground in Uganda. They will be working to train Ugandan pastors to raise up new indigenous churches to reach Uganda for the kingdom of God. Pray for favor in finishing up fundraising, and for favor to begin ministry strong once they arrive in Uganda.
Featured Dream Center Ministry
As you may know, Adult and Teen Challenge is a ministry to the men in the community who have addictions and struggle with substance abuse. Adult and Teen Challenge is constantly bringing more men in to experience the life-changing love of Jesus Christ. Pray for the men who are in the program right now and for those who will come in. Pray for their salvation, freedom, healing, and purpose.
Featured Multiply Church Ministries
Worship & Arts Department
Pastor Jerry Skaggs
Pray that as we enter this new season of worship and arts at Multiply Church that God’s anointing and presence would be the distinguishing mark on us and all that we do. We do not want to do this on our own. We would be powerless, hopeless, peaceless, joyless, and especially loveless without the Lord. Creativity is part of God’s image that we bear. Pray that new revelations of creativity, innovation, and renewal will impact all of the areas of arts ministries in our church this fall and Christmas season: Multiply Worship and Arts, Intune School of the Arts, SMACK, and Concord Academy. And finally, pray that everything we do not see — the things happening in the spiritual (unseen) realm — would be subject to the Holy Spirit and God’s perfect will. We have seen many lives changed and many triumphs, but we also believe we have won many victories in battles we did not even know we were fighting in. The battle is the Lord’s!
The Lord has been so good and kind to Concord Academy. We are thankful for the blessings of expanded classroom space and creative scheduling so that we can continue to serve the community in a safe and secure environment with an option for Christ-centered education. Please pray for the Lord’s continued wisdom, guidance, and provisions. As the school forges daily through what seems to be uncharted waters, please pray that His providential path will beam brightly.
Pray for our community leadership, local, and state officials, and for those up for election. Pray that they will be God-fearing people and lead with Biblical principles and wisdom. Ask the Lord to raise up His appointed leaders in the coming elections, and to move on the people’s hearts to vote with the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
