3) “Love Muslims” Launches May 5th: 130 New “Pray for Muslims” Videos!

The folks at PrayerCast are asking you to take part in the most comprehensive and compelling Muslim-focused prayer resource the world has ever seen. Over the month of Ramadan, they plan to release over 130 new 4-5 minute videos, all designed to lead the Body of Christ in focused, strategic, passionate prayer for the Muslim world. Each video is led by a former Muslim who now follows Jesus! They’re rallying the Church around the world to join them in prayer each day during Ramadan. Take a look…

4) Try this Prayer Moment at Your Next Church or Group Meeting

On April 11 the Sudanese military ousted president Omar al-Bashir after 30 years in power. But the unrest started back in 2018, when protests over living standards and shortages led to calls for his resignation. Even now the upheaval continues, as many reject the military-led transitional council and call for a civilian administration.

 

This is yet another critical and fragile moment in Sudan’s history.

 

Conflict and war have been an almost non-stop reality for the Sudanese. Yet through decades of turmoil, the Gospel has spread, and the small Sudanese Church has matured through suffering.

 

Even so, most Sudanese remain Muslim. Over 50% have never heard of Jesus. And the nation remains less than 1% evangelical.

May this critical moment of transition open a door for the Good News of Jesus Christ to reach over 20 million Sudanese who have yet to hear it!

7) New ‘Stock’ Video Resource For Non-Profits

Tim at Expat Media Pro has set up a website with the goal of linking up video editors in non-profit ministry with video creators who have traveled or live around the developing world and have already uploaded great content. He is looking for more videos to link to. If a video editor finds something they like, they just contact the video creator and make arrangements for use. Check it out at…

11) New JoshuaProject Video will Stir Your Church/Team/Org to Pray

Extraordinary prayer doesn’t come by accident. It’s not something we stumble upon. It’s something we have to seek. Joshua Project has helped us stir hearts with their new little 3-minute video at…

 

https://vimeo.com/311331983

 

Would you consider showing it at one of your upcoming worship services? Then follow it with 2 minutes of guided prayer from the platform, followed by small group prayer in your congregation or org, perhaps for another 3 or 4 minutes after that? Yes, the entire deal will soak up 10 minutes of your sermon time but, hey — preach on “prayer around the block and around the world” and this can be your application time — and you’re already 1/3 of the way finished! : )  (Thanks for the video, Joshua Project.)

1) Join the Global Movement of Praying for Muslims During Ramadan

I can only think of one reason why you wouldn’t want to take part in this special prayer emphasis: Wait. I can’t think of ANY.

 

Take a look…

Please consider signing up to pray. Because … check this out. This is the caliber of daily videos you’ll see during Ramadan this year. All brand new. All powerful. And all prompting you to pray like never before — to love Muslims … during Ramadan.

2) Dog Sets New Distance Record: Longest Frisbee Catch in History

Check us out on this. For us, this longest-distance Frisbee catch illustrates several key lessons that come together in this incredible feat.

Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y1Fruyxrx3w

First, the dog has to be incredibly fast and fit. Second, the dog’s timing has to be right (to snatch this thing right out of the air). Third and finally, the thrower had to make the throw just right (super-long distance combined with a super-long hang-time — and don’t forget super-straight). Launching a disciple-making movement (DMM) is somewhat like this. It usually requires an implementer who was so passionate, so determined, and so committed, that there was actually never anything in question: He or she felt so driven that “whatever it takes” to win an entire pocket of people, he or she would give it all. However, in reality, there was a certain sense of timing, calling, and God’s purpose involved. But even given all this, at the end of the day, it’s really all up to God and His eternal purposes. We can do everything just right — but if God’s Spirit doesn’t will it, it just won’t happen.

 

But when it DOES happen, it’s a beautiful thing.

 

3) Is This the Best Explanation of the Greatest Spiritual Needs?

This relatively new video (with relatively few views) just might be the best explanation anywhere of the biggest spiritual needs ever, especially when it comes to understanding the places where the Gospel isn’t. Thanks to RW Lewis and Chris Maynard for imagining this clear, clarion call for pioneers. Our hope is that your church or group will find time in the very near future to view and share this video, then prayerfully brainstorm about what action steps you might take to address its truths.

(Thanks to Mission Frontiers for consistently pointing us toward these important facts. And thanks to Telos Fellowship for believing in the importance of sharing these challenges. Finally, we’re all grateful to the good folks at JoshuaProject.net for sounding the call for all.)

12) Where Can We Learn to Share the "3 Circles" Presentation?

The book, More Disciples, trains readers how to share the 3 Circles Life Conversation (originally developed by Family Church in West Palm Beach, Florida) on page 118-122. In frame-by-frame storyboards, the book helps readers easily learn to share the Good News using this readily-adapted format. See More Disciples here…

9) Consider These Five Steps When Designing Your Strategy (Videos)

Our friends at Beyond have boiled down a five-step strategy for reaching an unreached people group. They see it as prayer, prayer-walking, first contact, miracles and healing, then discipleship. They’ve created a quick intro video for each of those five prongs. See them at:

Step 1 – Prayer – https://vimeo.com/186469882

Step 2 – Prayer Walking – https://vimeo.com/192036708

Step 3 – First Contact – https://vimeo.com/205606784

Step 4 – Miracles & Healing – https://vimeo.com/236105666

Step 5 – Discipleship – https://vimeo.com/255645612

(Thanks for pointing us to these, Chris!)

14) The Last Bit: We Don’t Say Thanks Often Enough to Our I.T. Helpers

We’re convinced that we don’t say thanks often enough to our I.T. helpers around the world. We sometimes expect mongo-large output from them for teeny-tiny-micro-budgets. It doesn’t help that we sometimes ignore them during planning phases, then expect them to leap tall buildings (and budgets) in a single bound. This week, join me in saying a prayer of thanks for all the I.T. helpers (and those who try to help us even if they don’t know information technology). Let’s celebrate by taking a 3-minute pause to watch this laughable skit in their honor. We especially appreciate the part in which the executive asks them to put a video in the print-out. : )

2) Is This the Most Powerful 4-Minute Video You’ve Ever Seen?

Wow.
That’s all I can say. How does a four-minute video pack so much emotion, so much power, and so much purpose? Somebody, somewhere, is a genius. How in the world.
If you’ve got four minutes to experience this power-packed video, then we have a feeling you’ll want to share it with someone else. Please do. If you don’t have four minutes, well, that’s just really… sad. : )
