• Our hope-filled future is bound up in sharing the story of Jesus, in discipling others, in bringing those disciples together into communities of believers, and in developing and releasing those believers to create other communities... till Jesus the King comes again!

Are you gathering for prayer?

Tomorrow marks the start of some important meetings. From Wednesday through Friday of this week, members of the global structure task force are meeting here at our house to finalize a proposal for creating a global network or alliance to better support and resource our World Team ministries. 

Right after that (starting Saturday), our leadership team of Area Directors and Sending Country arrives for a weeklong conference where we will share draft project plans for the coming years that seek to further our global vision in light of global trends.  There will be much discussion and feedback intended to refine and improve these project plans.

We have asked for prayer for both of these meetings for the past number of weeks.  I am asking again for your prayers during these days.  Would you gather for prayer with others and pray for these discussions that God would give wisdom and insight?

It is not an easy task to gather for pray.  We often find ourselves coming up with numerous reasons why we should put it off times of prayer until another more “convenient” time.   On February 2nd or 3rd, World Team is setting aside a Day of Prayer.  This is an opportunity for us to celebrate what God is doing and to pray for current needs.  This is an opportunity for us to be innovative in our approach to prayer together.

  • Perhaps gathering might mean inviting a group of workers by Skype conference to pray together online for half an hour.
  • Perhaps gathering might mean opening your home or apartment in the morning for an open time of prayer.  People could come whenever they wanted, and stay to pray as long as they could.
  • Perhaps gathering might mean meeting for a meal, praying before the meal, during the meal and after the meal for World Team ministries.

Maybe you have other ideas about how to gather for prayer.
