Jesus did not expect to carry out his Fatherâ€™s work successfully without praying consistently. We need people to pray that we would be faithful in prayer, so that we can hear the Fatherâ€™s voice.
We have experienced a challenging year in 2015 as a result of Martyn’s illness. He had bacterial endocarditis which damaged his aortic and mitral valves. Martyn’s aortic valve was replaced, the mitral valve repaired and his aorta was reinforced. We have been under attack and would appreciate prayer for protection and complete and continued healing for Martyn.
Our prayer is that we should pray “at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication.” This means a life devoted to prayer! (Ephesians 6:18 ESV)
Paul adds that to achieve this prayerful focus, we must ” keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints”
This means that we must also pray for you. You are “all the saints”, and so are we! So, please let us know your prayer requests, as we want to pray for you too.

A major challenge is that we have left behind our three children who are all college students in the U.S. Please pray that our relationship with Tom (and wife Kara), James and Alice will flourish despite the distance between us. Tom and Kara are living in Boston. Tom is doing his Ph.D. in the history of Christianity at Harvard. Kara is teaching special ed in a Boston elementary school. Alice (20) is Â in Chicago, studying Bible and elementary education at Moody Bible Institute. James (22) is at the University of Virginia Law School for two more years before becoming a JAG (army lawyer).
Of course we miss our children a great deal. Any difficulties with our kids can distract us from ministry in France. Please pray for faith, godliness and stability for each one of them. We are thankful that we have seen Tom, Kara and Alice, but we have not seen James for a year. We look forward to seeing him at Christmas.
