This past month our Teams have been on a Social Media Fast.
PRAISE GOD for all who stepped back from schedules and ongoing normal work and instead made a priority for August in taking some intentional down time. Think about Joshua 3:5, “Joshua told the people, “Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the Lord will do amazing things among you.” As we step back into those schedules in September 2018 we together agree in unity to believe for the mighty things God is doing in these tomorrow days. We continue to tap our arrows on the ground for the “more” of Ephesians 3:20-21 for all of the body of Christ, especially for the Orality Network and our Great Commission Partner Groups.
PRAY with us, Lord, As we step back into the physical work at hand, remind us again of the reality of John 9:4 “We must carry on the work of him who sent me while the daylight lasts. Night is coming, when no one can work.” Empower your servants to serve well in the spiritual places of life, such as keeping a love for You and Your Word priority and at the same time, valuing the physical work of the Kingdom You allow us to be able to touch! Let us, ” Taste and See that the Lord is good; How blessed is the one who takes refuge in Him.” Psalm 34:8
PRAY with us, Father, Close the gap! We pray in agreement the “least prayed prayer” in Matthew 9:37-38 & Luke 10:2.
• Pray for the Oral People Groups who number 80% (5.7 Billion) of the population of the globe who still wait for the gospel in a way they can really understand and receive. Time is short, let every believer wake up to fully seek first God’s Kingdom and His righteousness, realizing the urgency of the hour. (Rom. 13:11-14; Luke 19:13; Psalm 90:12)
• Pray that every follower of Jesus is BEING a disciple who fully follows Jesus in loving God, loving others and making disciples that make disciples. (Acts 1:8; Matt. 22:37; Prov. 11:30; Matt. 28:18-20)
• Pray for believers see the LOSTNESS of souls all around us. May each disciple be open and responsive to the heart condition of those the Holy Spirit is preparing. And let us move intentionally into sharing God’s Story and gift of salvation in Christ Jesus in a way that can be understood and responded to for transformation to happen at a heart level. (John 4:36; John 6:44; 2 Tim. 4:2)
