Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
Philippians 4:6 NIV
Church-Wide Focus | Dr. Doug Witherup | Senior Pastor
Every season, I find more reasons to be grateful to the Lord for all he has done and continues to do. Further, seeing all he is doing here at Multiply is beautiful, and it is a gift to be a part of it. Our church exists to multiply churches and multiply disciples — would you pray this month for that vision to seep into our hearts as the people of the church? Pray for each church member to take personal responsibility for multiplying churches and disciples. Pray that the people of our church would take the gifts God has given them into every part of their lives, all for God’s glory. Further, pray for our church — that we would be a house of revival, a house of God’s glory, a house of generations, and a house of the nations.
Pastor Bill Ballance | Congregational Care
Pastor LaDonna Doggette | Groups & Guest Services
Please continue to pray for our Tribe leaders and volunteers who faithfully serve God weekly. When we open our home, lead a group, teach the word, open a door on Sunday, we are doing this unto the Lord. Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ.
As Tribe leaders open their homes, invite neighbors, friends, family and co-workers, prepare meals, visit the sick, write notes and send cards.
As volunteers open doors on Sunday, wave, park a car, welcome guests, help someone find a seat. This too has great power.
Please pray we will see the importance of being a great servant, showing and sharing the love of Christ as we serve one another.
Let’s pray the spark of revival will start in our homes and the fire will spread into other homes, neighborhoods, workplaces and churches. Our leaders will carry and host the presence of God everywhere they go. The Holy Spirit will breaks out into many places throughout our community and state. God will use his people to make the move here in Cabarrus county to impact North Carolina. Let’s commit together to pray boldly and courageously to see God do more in us and through us than we can possibly imagine.
Let’s pray for more great leaders and volunteers to step up and make a difference here at Multiply Church.
Southeastern University Focus | Pastor Kevin Smith | SEU Director
A wave of sickness seems to have come upon our students on campus at SEU Carolina. Please be in prayer for the health and wellness of both our faculty and students. Pray that a hedge of protection would be placed around them as they fight off the sickness that is going around. And pray that they all would be blessed with a heavenly measure of strength to get back on their feet and continue the work He started in them.
Family Life Focus:
Pastor Nicki Smosna & Pastor Nick Pinion | Kids Ministry
Praise the Lord for all that He is doing with kids in Multiply kids. Pray that God would continue to pour out His spirit on Kids and they would cling to Him as they walk out the promises written on their life.
Pray for kids to be a light in this world. Rising up to be bold in their house and their schools, turning eyes to Jesus.
We are continuing prayers for the kid’s ministry volunteers, that God would continue to strengthen and grow the ones we have, and for ones who haven’t decided to serve yet, that God would begin to put a desire in their hearts for the kids in our church
Interim Pastors Chelsea & Brady Burke | Youth Ministry
God is on the move! Multiply Youth students are on fire for the Kingdom! Celebrate with us and thank the Lord for sending a record 94 in attendance on our biggest Wednesday last month. We are so excited to see students showing up each week excited to learn about the bible. The month of March will be following a powerful worship night we had at the end of February. Join us in prayer that our students will continue to fan the flame that was ignited that night. As we study the book of James this month, pray that students will get to hear God’s voice as they read the Word on their own this month. Thank you for interceding on behalf of our students, this generation is ready to change the world!
Missions Focus | Pastor Gwen Stowers | Missions and Outreach
The McKnight Family (Stephen, Kristen, Liam, Maggie, Delamey, and Collin) are currently serving in the Philippines. They have a big heart for children, their needs, and the needs of the churches in their communities. They were out of the country for 2 years due to Covid. In August of 2022 they were able to go back to the Philippines. The 2 years they were out of the country caused a couple of issues with their ministry. They have spent the last couple of months trying to rebuild/ bring life back to their ministry.
We ask that you pray:

Please pray for the children and youth of Cabarrus County. This demographic is desperately in need of healthy community and healthy families. Pray they will put down devices and pick up friends. They need face to face contact with peers for laughter, play and good conversations. They need family meals around a table and they need a church community they cannot wait to visit each week.
