February 2017 Prayer Requests

-

"In this the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him" (1 John 4:9, New King James Version).

1.     Lift up the next new class of Language Dubbing Recordists who will go through training in February. These three women are now being trained and will begin traveling in March or April. Ask God to raise up six more recordists to go through the next training cycle in late summer.

2.     Short-term mission trips provide a number of opportunities for people to do hands-on ministry by coming alongside national staff members and partners to accelerate the work in open and restricted-access nations. To learn about going on one of these Jesus Film® mission trips this year, click here:  http://www.jesusfilmmissiontrips.org

Please lift up the following outreach in prayer:

Middle East (Asia): In a land overflowing with mountains and rivers, the descendants of thousands of Asian minority people groups reside. The JESUS film has been dubbed into the local language, making it the first film in their own dialect! The first showings amazed community leaders, and the film has been passed throughout the country and across borders. Still, very few people living in this region have seen or heard of JESUS. The vast majority will never hear unless there is outside assistance. The mission team will establish relationships with university students and young professionals through a variety of activities (hosting conversational English clubs, viewing short films using the Jesus Film® app, sharing their testimonies, etc.). Local ministry partners will accompany the team and will continue relationships with students who show an interest in spiritual things, ultimately establishing house churches. Pray the outreach team will be effective in building friendships that move beyond the classroom setting and that their efforts will have a lasting impact.
[February 17 – March 4, 2017].

3     Pray for the February allocation meetings (February 20-24). This is the forum where the ministry assigns the funds raised to projects worldwide. Pray for wisdom in applying funds to the most strategic projects, as the needs far exceed available resources. Also pray for effective reporting back to ministry partners on the use of their gifts in advancing the gospel worldwide.

In addition, please pray for the following:

  1. Pray for a good response to the February appeal letters seeking funds for DVDs, video tools, duplication equipment and streaming the gospel on film online. Pray that many who read the letter will be prompted by the Holy Spirit to give and help take the gospel to unreached people.
  2. Pray for the efforts which began in mid-January to enroll new monthly partners to support film and partner teams in 2017.  Pray that the Spirit will prompt friends with hearts for the lost to become regular investors in the work of global film evangelism and church planting.  Ask God for 250 new monthly partners this winter.
  3. Pray for the enlistment of friends of the ministry, new and old, to attend the upcoming briefing in Orlando, Florida, March 9-12. Pray that God will prompt those whom He has prepared for greater involvement to join us. Pray also for the team preparing the event and for the speakers and guests. Pray His Spirit will move in and through the weekend.
  4. Ask the Lord to continue to give the ministry new insights into ways to acquire additional financial partners through both online and offline efforts in 2017.  Pray for breakthroughs using the internet, video and social media. Continue to pray also for wisdom in finding ways to fund the streaming of our films on the internet for global evangelism and follow-up.
  5. Pray for the work on a church-planting video report sharing how God is moving in Southeast Africa. Pray it will be used by God to encourage people to invest in the work of reaching the lost and planting multiplying churches.
  6. Pray for broader opportunities to provide awareness to friends of the ministry about tax-wise planned and estate giving.  Lift up plans for the upcoming May webinars in this area in partnership with the Wycliffe Foundation (Bible Translators).
