Current Prayer Requests


“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.” – Philippians 4:6


Please Pray - TBP Prayer Request List
- April- June 2021


Thank you for taking time to read over the following and for praying. Know, as you pray, you are in agreement with many others who are looking at this same list:


    • This ministry has not scheduled any of its typical breakfast gatherings for 2021 because the COVID protocol cannot be observed in such gatherings; however. . . .
    • On the 24th of April the men will be coming together at the Bemus Point UMC for a Worship and Witness event.
    • And also, there is an event on the calendar for the fall of 2021 – a day at Mission Meadows called “Rise to the Challenge.” Please join us in prayer that this will happen. 


    • Our women continue to meet for breakfast and to minister to each other in prayer and to be blessed and encouraged by excellent speakers on the 2nd Saturday of each month. Please pray for much Kingdom fruit because of these gatherings.
    • The speaker on the 10th of April will be Lucy Kappenberger; please pray for Lucy.
    • Please keep Nina Bell and all the leaders in prayer for spiritual protection and for Holy Spirit guidance as they plan each monthly program and as they follow-up with ministries between gatherings.


    • There is normally something happening every month [at least] in this “room” of our ministry. But due to COVID not much is on the calendar right now . . . .
    • . . . Except the pastors and ministry leaders of the Jamestown region continue to gather every Tuesday morning to pray for our region and more. Let’s layer on the prayer; prayer meetings experience a greater presence of God when prayer meetings are prayed for.
    • AND we will hold a National Day of Prayer gathering in the parking lot of the Chautauqua Mall. That is Thursday the 6th of May at noon behind the old Bon-Ton building.

    • Please hold our Board members in prayer as they pray and seek God together on the 8th of May. They are scheduled to meet from 4:00 – 8:00 p.m.

    • First, we praise God for his awesome presence at Our Agape Prayer Ministry School which was held on the 19th & 20th of March. The joy of the Lord was on everyone’s face as old bondages were broken and inner wounds were healed.
    • Our Regional School of Prayer will take place four Saturdays in a row this coming July. But it is not too soon to be praying for God to bring everyone there He want to have there and for His Church to be strengthened as a House of Prayer for the nations. This will be hosted by the Healing Ministries Church of God in Jamestown. The dates are the 10th, 17th, 24th, and 31st of July.
    • No trips are scheduled for Uganda this year, but The Better Place continues to help support many ministries there.
    • Please keep the Day Spring High School in prayer for continued provision for building construction, land purchase, paying teachers, the health of students, and favor with the Ministry of Education and with the Nabweru Municipal government. Prayers are also request for Pastor Edward Kizito as he oversees this growing school.
    •  Please keep the Olympus Children’s primary school in prayer as they have outgrown their rented space in Nansana and they are building a new campus outside the city on a small acreage
    • Many orphaned and abandoned children in Uganda are sponsored for their school tuition and related expenses through The Better Place. Please pray for good health, protection and full provision for our “Shalom Children.”
    • A miracle of healing is requested for two of our Shalom Children who were born HIV positive. Pray that the HIV in Esther and in Kevin be disintegrated; so they will be HIV negative and freed from this virus.
    • AND please pray for this: We are in the process of forming a new ministry that will be called the East Africa Initiate and Sustain Foundation. Once this new ministry is officially/legally established; the many Uganda initiatives that have made a home beneath The Better Place wings will fly the nest and belong to the EAIS Foundation. We had an initial meeting [Zoom] of potential Board of Directors people on the 27th of March. Now our lawyer is moving the incorporation along.


    • Please keep praying toward the complete fulfillment of God’s vision for The Better Place.
    • You can track all of our 2021 activities and ministry on our Facebook timeline as well as on the COMING EVENTS page and the NEWS page of our web site.
    • Please join us in praying for God to work a great good through the pandemic and that He ultimately be glorified by miraculously obliterating the COVID-19 leading to a great awakening and the salvation of millions of souls.

Thank you for your prayers!




For inspiration, motivation, encouragement and good teaching in prayer ministry, we recommend that you consider reading many of the books we offer in The Better Place Book Store.


As you pray, may these verses from Scripture, which remind us of the prayer life of our Lord Jesus, be an encouragement to you:

After a long day, Jesus prayed.
After he had dismissed them, he went up on a mountainside by himself to pray. When evening came, he was there alone. – Mt. 14:23

Before the day began, Jesus prayed.
Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed. – Mk. 1:25

Jesus told us to “Keep on asking” and to “Keep on seeking” and to “Keep on knocking.” He taught that we should always pray and not give up. That is the way he prayed.

So he left them and went away once more and prayed the third time, saying the same thing. – Mt. 26:44

As busy as he was, Jesus always took time for much prayer. That is why he could do all that he did.
But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed. …And the power of the Lord was present for him to heal the sick. – Lk. 5:16-17
