6) Why Don’t We Pray for Militants?

militantHats off to Ailsa for asking tough questions in response to our item from the July 13th edition of Brigada, “2) Pray for Peace.” In the past, visible at…

Ailsa wrote, “I am surprised that Brigada is not advocating prayer for the militants – for their salvation. Many are praying for the victims -which is good- but no one is praying for the militants.” She asks a great question. What’s your take on it?

11) Prayer Notebook App Might be the Berries For You

prayer appEver have someone ask you to pray… and you wanted to make note of it on your smartphone but just didn’t know where? If you put it in your Evernote app, it gets lost with 1000 other notes. So … why not use a special app like…

7) Praelude2020.com Seeks to Help You Build Pray-ers and Funders

Praelude is an online system designed to facilitate missionaries building 24/7 prayer and full funding. Praelude involves (1) pray-ers selecting a 20 minute window in apraelude missionary’s week and committing to pray for them some time during that window. (2) The missionary adds current prayer requests to the site (I aim for once or twice a week.). (3) An hour before the pray-er’s selected time, they receive an email or text message to remind them and provide the current prayer requests. (4)There’s also a link to click after praying to indicate they’ve done so. (5) That click gets reported to the missionary as someone having prayed, which, as you might imagine, is very encouraging! The weekly prayer commitment is coupled with a monthly financial donation of at least $20. That’s encouraging too. Check it out at…

11) Why Can’t we Get More People Really to Pray for Missions?

prayer girlThis was a break-out group we tackled with the global outreach pastors in California. It seemed that many of us had experienced the same ache: Why is it that our church might run 4000 in attendance, but when we organize a time slot specifically to pray for unreached peoples or missions, we only have 40 (maximum!) show up? … and what can we do to improve on that? How can we get prayer the attention that it deserves? Your ideas?

10) “30 Days of Prayer for the Muslim World” Booklets Look GREAT

muslim bookThis past week, while speaking at a conference in Arizona, I was blessed to be handed one of the new booklets for this year’s “30 Days of Prayer for the Muslim World.” Since 1993, this annual campaign has helped raise awareness and blessings for Muslims the world over. Recently, at the church where I’m chairman of the Missions Committee, we bought hundreds of these booklets, essentially enough to give one to each adult in our church on the Sunday before the campaign began. Each day, we sent out a brief email to remind participants to pray. In addition, we purchased one hundred of the children’s version booklets. The campaign was extremely successful and I’m sure we’ll do it again in the future. Learn more at…

Booklets are available in 39 languages. And don’t forget the children’s version.

1) Join us in Praying for Dalat International School

International School This past week, we received a $93 gift from a Brigada partner with a heart for Dalat International School, which was founded in 1929 as a private Christian boarding school to provide a North American elementary and high school education for children of C&MA missionaries in Indo-China. It is presently located in Penang, Malaysia and is a very special place. Ask any teacher what makes Dalat special and they will say it is the students. Ask any student what makes Dalat special and they will say it is the friends that they make and the fun they have with them. Ask any parent what makes Dalat special and they will say it provides a quality education in a safe environment. Positive togetherness, moments of camaraderie and satisfying relationships are the hallmarks of a Dalat education. They have a few employment opportunities available at

http://www.dalat.org/main/dalat/employment-opportunities/

Please pray for Dalat as it serves both to support missionary efforts in Southeast Asia as well as to reach out to the many unreached in Penang. (…and thanks to the true fan of Brigada for the gift!)

Daily, weekly and monthly prayer subscriptions provide guidance and insider perspective on how to pray effectively for the islands and their people. Visit

1) Love these Prayer Videos

prayercastYou’ve probably already seen them, but… in case you’ve been on some other planet or something, the folks at…

http://prayercast.com/

have put together some awesome videos, some of which are set up nation by nation and are PERFECT for missions rallies that are focusing on a particular part of the world. Hats off to them for making all their videos free of charge. It’s truly suggestive of the fact that their mission is to raise up prayer in whatever way possible. God bless them.
