I have had a few people request a prayer sheet for myself so I have prayerfully constructed this sheet for consistent daily prayer support by dear brothers and sisters in Christ at SI. [b]NOTE:[/b] I am applying to bible school in Murietta, California and alot of the points in this prayer sheet pertain to that fact. I will start another thread on more details about the bible school and how that came about: Bible School Application..

*Please print out this prayer sheet and post it in a place where you can be reminded to pray for the needs of SermonIndex and my time at bible school. I know the Lord will make this next few years a very fruitful 2 years for this ministry and my personal growth simply by the prayers of God's people.
Here is the text that is in the PDF prayer sheet:
Thank you for the interest and time to [b]pray[/b] for me and the ministry of SermonIndex.net I will be attending (God willing) Calvary Chapel Bible School in Murietta, California from Feb [b]2005 to 2007[/b]. I am very excited of what God is going to do in my life personally and I know it's something that is going to carry over to SermonIndex.net in many ways. I am asking for people who are interested in supporting and praying for me these next 2 years to commit to this and also print out this sheet as a reference point and reminder. I would love to know you are praying and commiting to this. Feel free to correspond and email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org during these next 2 years.
[b]Specific Prayer Requests for the Bible School[/b] - I will be attending the bible school for 2 years and would appreciate specific prayers towards aspects of this time at CCBC (Calvary Chapel Bible School):
Pray for the application process and all international affairs such as transferring of monies, acceptance of student visa and that traveling across the border would go smoothly without hassles.
Pray for the next 3 months before the beginning of bible school that I would be able to prepare spiritually for this 2 year commitment, not wavering in faith for what God has in store.
Pray for driving lessons that I am taking over the next 3 months and the final exam for full license.
Pray for myself to be more broken in God's hands, allowing Him to bear the fruit of the Holy Spirit in my heart; there is much that I need to allow God to sift in me and conform into the image of His Son.
Pray for the cities of Escondido and Murietta in California, that God would bring a revival in many believers hearts in these areas and there would be a signifigant impact on the lost for the kingdom of God.
Pray for my studies at CCBC that I would be able to handle all the reading / writing assignments on top of other activities and running of the SermonIndex.net ministry.
[b]Specific Needs for Bible School and SermonIndex[/b] - There are quite a few things that I have realized that are needed for the next 2 years. Lift these up in prayer and if you feel led help out in a tangible way.
Need of a vehicle (donated or to purchase) for the use of driving in California.
Need for funding to be provided to attend the second year of CCBC.
Need for continued support for SermonIndex.net to keep running. I will not be able to actively raise funds so I will be depending fully on people's initiative to support this ministry.
Need for people to become more pro-active in promoting SermonIndex.net and also a need for more forum moderators to take a daily commitment to checking the site and ensuring discussions are appropriate.
