prayer for muslimIn case you wondered, the “30 days of Prayer” campaign is alive and well. In fact, at a conference in Phoenix last week, I had a chance to speak to the point person for the initiative. Due in part to some special initiatives, the June 2015 initiative might end up being the biggest in history. The online presence is better than ever too. You can purchase and download the ebook instantly, online, for just $3.

There are videos there too, and a special kids’ version. If you’ve never done a “30 Days” campaign with your church, this is the best time to start. We suggest: go there now.

6) You’ve Seen the Book, but What about the Movie? (“In the House”)

wind in the house of islamNo doubt, you’ve seen the book (now in its 3rd printing), “A Wind in the House of Islam.”

http://www.amazon.com/Wind-House-Islam-Drawing-Muslims/dp/1939124034

But did you know that Paul, David and Jon (almost sounds like a singing group from England?!) have now turned the book into a DVD, “In the House of Islam DVD?” It includes 56-, 32-, and 17-minute versions, all on the same DVD, making it useful for a variety of contexts, including class room, home group, Sunday School, church service, etc. You’ll learn firsthand how God is at work in the world’s largest non-Christian religion (Islam) drawing hundreds of thousands of Muslims to new life in Jesus Christ. Don’t miss this opportunity to journey beyond the headlines and into the remote corners of the Great Commission, where God is at work… In The House of Islam!

1) Waymakers — a Different Hope and a Different Prayer

WayMakers is a mobilization ministry focused on seeing Christ glorified by obedient, worshiping movements in every people group.

http://www.waymakers.org/FreshPrayer_Banner

They love getting you involved in what they call “saturation prayer.” They talk about the word, “co-passion” as being “a way of living in friendship with God that relies on God’s own joy and jealousy to be the energizing, integrating power of their lives.” They focus on helping people move from a sense of duty to a calling of destiny. (Thanks for pointing us to them in the comments box following our request for input in the last edition, Roger.)

3) Get the Skinny on What to Pray at Joshua Project

joshuaproject2As Roger pointed out (thanks for a third time, Roger), you might WANT to pray, but maybe you wouldn’t know for WHAT to pray. That’s where Joshua Project comes in. They bring definition to the unfinished task, and by doing so, give us a tangible focus for prayer. Visit them at…

6) Rediscover Prayer in this new Book

threshold prayerIn the old days, Solomon placed people in the temple to pray and worship full-time. There were people in the Kingdom who invested their lives, just helping other people pray and praise. Fortunately, today, some have rediscovered that priority, making it possible for people like Paul Covert to bring you the book, “Threshold: Transformational Prayer Ministry

http://www.amazon.com/Threshold-Transformational-Prayer-Ministry/dp/1493567292

It’s big. It’s practical. And, if you read it and apply it, it’s lifechanging both for you and your church.

7) Learn about Transforming Prayer in this 2011 eBook

11) What Can Cats and Dogs Teach us about Prayer?

cat and dogIf you’ve taken Perspectives, you’ve probably already learned about “Cat and Dog Theology.” But if you haven’t, this book will catch you up. It’s entitled, “Cat & Dog Theology: Rethinking Our Relationship with Our Master.”

http://www.amazon.com/Cat-Dog-Theology-Rethinking-Relationship/dp/0830856218

Either way, maybe you haven’t ever considered what Cats and Dogs can teach us about prayer. Now you can find out by reading, “Cat & Dog Prayer: Rethinking Our Conversations with Our Master.”

12) Hear Louis on Prayer

prayer remixIn this one “Prayer Remix” DVD, you’ll hear 3 talks by Louis Giglio: Who’s Blessing Whom?, Supernature Life Inside, and The Prayer God Always Answers. See it at…

http://www.amazon.com/Prayer-Remix-Louie-Giglio/dp/B004CKNW7M

Louis’ main premise: “Bless Me. Be With me. Watch over and protect me. Forgive me. Listen to the way you pray, and to the prayer of those around you, and you’ll hear these four tried and true phrases often- familiar words we’ve probably been saying over and over to God since we first learned how to pray. ReMIXED prayers embrace these four concepts, while moving towards a healthier, God-centered prayer language that saturates our thoughts and words with the phrases, “Let Me Bless You,” “Live Though Me,” and “No Matter What, Use Me.” A subtle shift based on radical truth. Potent prayer for a full life.”

Highly recommended.

14) Sovereignty of God: The Movie (“You Reign”)

you reignI love this prayercast video…

http://www.prayercast.com/you-reign.html

Because it shows that, whether in triumph or tragedy, victory of defeat, God is still God. Not that long ago, I had to speak at a missionary retreat about the sovereignty of God. The 300 or so passages that I studied in preparation for that series of talks was life-changing for me. I learned that “God is at work, causing every little detail in my life to come into conformity with His will (Eph. 1:11).” It was transformational for me. I no longer had to worry about life’s decisions. As long as I was seeking his purposes, I just prayed, then acted with the best knowledge I had at my disposal and depended on Him to work out the rest. Using that knowledge, I’ve lived my life straight-up, and God has always won out in the end. Sometimes, I have to be patient (but then, so does He, with me). In the end, He always reigns. So watch the video — and give thanks in all things.
