Pre-project Prayer Requests:
There are a number of European cities this summer that will see tens of thousands of visitors, nationals from the Arabian Gulf. While in these cities, they allow themselves to see and experience things they might shy away from in their home cities. There will be close to 100 volunteers who will take the Gospel to these visitors.
Laborers. For the Lord of the Harvest to call out the trainable, moldable volunteers to come to these cities to share the Gospel. This summer, some new concepts will be introduced to the volunteers, who in turn, will go out on the streets and share the Gospel with lost Arabs.
Follow-up. A new follow-up stream was launched last summer. The summer ended with more than two dozen people to follow-up. About five of those people are still in touch today. Right now, apps are being programmed and the system is being modified to be more effective. Pray that the apps will be put into the Apple App Store and Google Play Store with little challenge. Pray for the developer to have wisdom as the system is further developed. Pray for the volunteers to embrace the new technology.
Reception of a New Concept. We want to move into 'multiplication' mode where the Gospel flows into and THROUGH families to their extended families and tribes. This will require a different approach by the volunteers as well as a different level of receptivity by the hearers. Pray for God to make volunteers super sensitive to identifying Persons of Peace who will be conduits of the Gospel. Pray now for God to prepare the 'soil' to be receptive and productive.
Ask the Heavenly Father for fruit that lasts, that is, individuals who will receive the Gospel and share Christ with their families and for multiplying groups of followers to form.
Pray for the Father to prepare the hearts (and bodies) of the leadership who will have eight very challenging weeks of preparation and work.
