A Special Call to Prayer this Wednesday…
In the eight years since I started MaxPoint Ministries, we have never had a global call to prayer for our ministry or family. But this Wednesday, January 23, we are humbly asking people all over the world who in some way have been touched by our work to pray for us.
Maybe you receive my Bible Blog (www.franksbibleblog.com) or we have worked together on mission trips. Maybe I was your pastor in Ohio or a colleague in global ministry. Maybe you have attended a MaxPoint seminar, used 24-7Discipleship.com, read my book or utilized our ministry’s mission trip services. Maybe you read my wife’s blog (www.GodandMe2theMax.com), had been a part of her Groupies4God Bible memorization program, or were encouraged by her cancer healing (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KCN2MGSzym4). Maybe our children have touched you in some way—our 16 year old daughter’s numerous mission trip outreaches and public speaking (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bfpKq-1rH4A ) or how our 14 year old son has overcome so much in his young life. Or maybe we’ve never interacted at all; you just saw this post or someone passed it along to you.
Whatever the case may be, I would humbly ask that on Wednesday you lift up MaxPoint Ministries (www.maxpoint.org) and our family—Frank, Beth, Amber and Jacob--before Father. We would ask that you pray for three things: 1) Wisdom 2) Clear direction from God and 3) Provision.
Just as Gideon saw a mighty miracle take place as God used him and 300 soldiers, I am asking God to give us 300 people who will commit to pray for us on Wednesday. You can tell me of your commitment through Twitter by tweeting “praying” to @frankbanfill, by “liking” the call to prayer at www.Facebook.com/maxpointministries, posting on my Facebook page (if we are already Facebook friends) or leaving a note on my blog (www.franksbibleblog.com).
Of course please pray as the Lord leads, but here are some Scriptures that we will be praying this Wednesday:
“Then you will know that I am the Lord; those who hope in me will not be disappointed.”--Is. 49:23b
“And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.”--2 Cor. 9:8
“I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut.”—Rev. 3:8a
“If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault and it will be given to him.”—James 1:5
Thank you in advance for your prayers! We truly appreciate them.
Yours for the Harvest,
