The Prayer Circle
Look at the current Celebrate Update. Then take your place in the PRAYER CIRCLE, that “your joy may be full”.
This letter you hold in your hand is intended to bless you in a special way.
Get ready to be touched through JESUS-FOCUSED PRAYER! We are creating a PRAYER CIRCLE with ALL EYES ON JESUS, as we believe for YOUR NEEDS.
Here is how we will form the Prayer Circle of Faith around YOU. First, you are a part of this circle because I know that you are believing Jesus where you are. Fill out the online “prayer request form” for the Grace Prayer Center, and a hard copy will be given to me to will carry to our next Gospel Campaign. If I can not fit all the prayer requests into my suitcase, other team members will help me, and together we will carry all the prayer requests.
Friend, can you see the Prayer Circle of Faith? You are praying! There is prayer in the Grace Prayer Center and we’ll pray at the Gospel Campaign. Most of all we are connected with Jesus Christ in prayer.
“And in that day you will ask Me nothing. Most assuredly, I say to you, whatever you ask the Father in My name He will give you. Until now you have asked nothing in My name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full” (John 16:23-24).
Twice you see the phrase “in My name”. That’s what I mean with Jesus-focused prayer. We pray to the Father, while we put our attention on what Jesus has attached His name to.
Has Jesus attached His name…
…to the salvation of your loved ones?
…To your healing?
…To your financial provision?
…To your victory?
…To joy, blessing, increase and fruitfulness in your life?
The answer is a resounding YES!!
As an evangelist, I stand before huge crowds of people. But I dare not begin to preach unless I have enjoyed the privilege of prayer in the name of Jesus. Then when I stand on the platform and glance across the sea of faces, I rejoice because, in prayer, I have already caught a glimpse of Jesus’ greatness. I know the devil’s power over the people has been broken once and for all.
There’s more. In James 5:16 it says: “Pray for each other” (NIV).
I know that hundreds, sometimes thousands of precious intercessors uphold me in prayer while I minister on the Gospel Campaign platform. Sometimes I can feel those prayers lifting me above the clouds of despair, sickness and hopelessness that I see on the faces of the masses who have come to hear the Gospel.
This letter is not about me, or World Impact Ministries. It is about YOU. As you are included in the Prayer Circle of Faith, you will be lifted above despair and prayer needs that have weighed you down.
Picture yourself mounting up with wings as an eagle, soaring above all the circumstances.
Why this prayer focus now? There are several reasons.
First, we are entering into an intense season of harvest of souls. Three Gospel Campaigns are scheduled in the next 10 weeks: Central Kalimantan, Indonesia; Assam, India; and finally Western Papua, Indonesia.
In two of these regions the predominant religion is Islam, and in the other it is Hinduism. We will be on the front lines of evangelism; you and I will be there together with Jesus through our giving and our prayers.
WORLD IMPACT MINISTRIES REALLY NEEDS YOUR PRAYERS AND SUPPORT AT THIS CRUCIAL TIME. Thank you for planting your seed gift in faith and expectation.
Second, I see two harvests: The harvest of souls and the harvest of increase from God in your life. Look at the ‘Celebrate Update’. See what God did in Ranchi, India. Our prayers and financial giving is working together with Jesus Christ. Be encouraged!
This newsletter is a THANK YOU to every partner. Your participation made it possible.
I’ve instructed our Grace Prayer ministers to pray individually for every person, who sends a Prayer request. I will also ask the pastors in our overseas Pastors’ Seminars to bring your name individually before the Lord. We want to pray over every person, one by one.
I’ve also asked our ministry staff to be very watchful for your prayer, and that each prayer request is treated with priority prayer.
Jesus said “That your joy may be full”. That’s the vision in my heart. Joy in your home and in your heart over what the Lord has done.
Third, there’s another reason why we pray for YOU like this. We VALUE our relationship with YOU! We LOVE YOU! We want to sincerely TOUCH and BLESS YOU during this prayer campaign.
Thank you for your WILLINGNESS and GENEROSITY to provide FINANCIAL SUPPORT. You don’t have to send an offering for us to pray for you…. PRAYER IS FREE! But I am confident the Lord will prompt you to give a generous gift at this time, because the need is so urgent.
Your participation is greatly appreciated and greatly received!
Yours in the harvest,
P.S. Other then seeing people come to Christ, nothing excites me like testimonies of answered prayer. I look forward to receive your report of what the Lord has done for you.Give Your Best Seed HereMy Prayer Request
