April 2017 Prayer Requests

-

“I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die”  (John 11:25, 26, New King James Version).

Outreach for Easter 2017

1.     JESUS Film Premiere in Jamaica:

        Pray for the Easter season premiere of the JESUS film in the Patois language for the people of Jamaica.

·        April 8 – Pray as the Patois translation of the JESUS film premieres in Kingston, Jamaica.

·        April 9 - 15 – Ask God to reach many through the television broadcasts of the Patois JESUS film as it airs in homes across Jamaica.

2.     Online Broadcasting:  Pray for the use of online media services such as iTunes for gospel outreach. Lift up the Easter short film campaign and pray for its effectiveness in leading to clear gospel presentations.

3.     Television Broadcasting:  Pray for the scheduling of showings of JESUS on local and national stations. Lift up opportunities in Western Europe, Africa and parts of Asia throughout 2017. The goal is to enlist 300 stations by the end of this year.

4.     Spring Mission Trips:  Short-term mission trips provide opportunities for people to do hands-on ministry as they come alongside national staff and partners, accelerating the work in open and restricted-access nations. To learn about going on one of these Jesus Film Mission Trips® yourself, visit www.jfmt.org.

Please lift the following outreaches up in prayer this spring:

Africa: A missions team is traveling to remote areas of a large country to teach English as a foreign language to university students. The goal is to build relationships with students that lead to opportunities to discreetly share the gospel both in small group settings and one-to-one using the Jesus Film® app on smart phones and laptops.

[March 31 – April 14, 2017]

Togo (West Africa): During this two-week outreach, team members will share their faith and immerse themselves in the culture of the local tribes. The JESUS film will not only be shown to groups in the evening, but teams will also do evangelism using the app to show JESUS and other films in the local language via smart phones and laptops.
[April 17 – 30, 2017]

In addition, please pray for the following:

  1. A good response to the April postal appeal seeking support for film projection equipment and follow-up tools. Digital video and micro projector sets, video tablets, and other video and audio tools are needed to present the gospel on film in dozens of countries. Pray that, as friends read the letter, they will be prompted to help send the good news of the risen Savior to those who have yet to hear of God’s love and forgiveness.
  2. Follow-up to the March briefing and especially for those who made a faith commitment of tenfold. Pray the stewardship principle the guests heard and learned will be assimilated into their daily lives.
  3. Appeals sent recently through postal mail to acquire new financial partners for the ministry. Pray for the ongoing testing of concepts to determine which presentation or presentations work most effectively to encourage involvement.
  4. Friends of the ministry considering tax-wise giving opportunities during the 2016 tax-preparation season and throughout 2017 (IRAs, real estate, donor-advised funds, etc.). Pray a number of these friends will be led to give assets, both now and       through their estates, to help accelerate the global spread of the gospel.
  5. The expansion of our “Power of Jesus” stories and prayer guide to 30 featured countries or areas where God is working and continued prayer is needed.
  6. The quick transition to a new system to communicate with friends of the ministry through email; pray the new platform is fully operational by late May. Also, pray for efforts to utilize online channels to attract and cultivate new friends and donors to the ministry.
