Some of the most powerful stories etched into the scriptures have come to be when men and women simply wait on the God of all people, places, and things. In light of this reality, we as a team have been fasting and praying, and waiting on the Lord each Tuesday. We would love for you to join us each week. Please let us know how we can be praying specifically for you.
PRAYING FOR THE WORLD – This Week’s Focus: Gospel for Asia
This week it is our heart that we would all be praying for the ministry of Gospel for Asia. As you read below we pray that your heart is stirred to intercede for those who have yet not heard and for those who are going be spending time with those who are bruised, beaten and broken.
Pray that the Lord will touch hearts through each tract Gospel for Asia missionaries hand out. Go to www.GFA.org to read the story of how a Gospel tract and a native missionary reached Sandeep just in time. Pray that many people will be drawn to Jesus through GFA's ministry among those suffering from leprosy. Read a moving report of missionaries being Jesus' hands and feet to people in leper colonies. Please pray that the Lord will provide more bicycles for GFA's missionaries in Asia. Read about the significance of a bicycle to the ministry of one missionary in Haryana, India. Pray for a GFA missionary and new believers in Jharkhand who recently suffered persecution for their Christian faith.
PRAYING FOR TAKE NO GLORY
Please join us as we come before the Lord today. It is our heart that we would be lovingly exalting Him as He always is lovingly edifying, exhorting, and encouraging us to draw deeper into relationship with Him. Please pray that: We would be a ministry which blesses and encourages those whom we minister to. God would be exalted. We would avail ourselves to the Lord. We would have abiding relationships in the Lord. We would draw together as one. We would have Christlike attitudes. We would be diligent. We would be self-controlled. We would be servants to all.

PRAYING FOR HAWAII - May 14th - June 11th
From Wednesday, May 14th through Wednesday, June 11th we will be engaged in serving several churches throughout the Island of Oahu, Hawaii. Please pray with us that God would continue to open doors for ministry. That He would soften hearts. That Calvary Chapel Pearl Harbor, Horizon Honolulu, Waipio Grace Brethren Church, North Shore Christian Fellowship and the various other ministries that we will be partnering with will be strengthened, filled and directed for the days to come.
Jesus Loves You North Shore: On May 16th & 17th we will be partnering with Horizon Honolulu, North Shore Christian Fellowship and many other local churches to reach out to the thousands homeless people who live in the area. Many of these people are working families who just simply cannot afford housing. Please pray that God would move in and through this outreach. That He would lead them and direct them over the days to come. Pray for Pastor Francis. Pray for Calvary Chapel Bible College, Indianapolis as they will be there serving and preparing the grounds for the out reach. Pray that God would sovereignly speak into the lives of all those who will be attending the outreach and get saved or stoked on Jesus Christ.
Joyfully serving Jesus,
The Take No Glory Team
