Please Pray - Monthly TBP Prayer Request List - April/May 2016

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

 

Many of the needs for prayer remain pretty much the same from week to week, but there always seems to be a couple new items to give thanks for or for which we need to make our requests known. 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:

  • Thank God; we continue to reap good benefits from the day of meetings with Darryl and Tracy Strawberry our Men of Integrity organized last year. As a result; pastors met several times to seek God for direction in coming against the strongholds of destructive addictions. An eight-point action plan has been adopted and a permanent Steering Committee has been established.

  • Please pray for the upcoming meetings with Tracy Strawberry as she returns to Jamestown to train people in the use of the curriculum she has authored; “Clean, Sober and Saved.” This will take place on June 11th.
  • On June 12th Tracy Strawberry will speak at a Drug Awareness and Prevention Day sponsored by our Steering Committee and Hope Chautauqua. And then on the 13th she will speak at an event titled, “Hope and Healing for Chautauqua, A Community Resources Event” that is sponsored by Chautauqua County.

  • Please hold “Business Church” in prayer as business owners and managers meet on the 3rd Friday of each month to encourage each other to keep Christ at the center of all they do. [These lunch-time meetings are held at the Gateway Center in Jamestown, NY]

  • Thank God for a huge positive turnout and response to the “Breaking Soul Ties” seminar that was held on the 1st – 3rd of April. Bishop Leecroft Clarke [a volunteer staff with TBP] was the leader/instructor.
  • You can track the above and all of our 2016 activities and ministry on our Facebook timeline;
  • A continuing request until it is answered: Bishop Joseph Nsubuga greatly needs a reliable vehicle as he travels the nation of Uganda as the National Mobilizer. Our request is for a Toyota Land Cruiser TX Limited Prado. Please pray for this needed provision. [He must travel many “unimproved” roads and this necessitates a rugged vehicle.]. The cost of a good used Land Cruiser is $22,000.

The cost of a good used Land Cruiser is $22,000.
  • Day Spring Christian School in Kampala, Uganda needs at least $5,000 as soon as possible to make improvements to their facility to satisfy government regulations. Also, some acreage in available right now for purchase next to the school for a cost of $14,000. We are asking God for an even $20,000 to send to this vital school that is providing an excellent education to orphan children and needy children of pastors and others. [TBP has orchestrated the financing for the building and establishment of this school from its beginning a couple years ago].
  • Also on the 14th of May; our Chautauqua Lake Men of Integrity will hold their 3rd breakfast for men and boys. The speaker will be Al Batt who will share about having a winsome witness for Christ. – God has been mightily blessing the men at these breakfasts. Please pray for His powerful presence once again.
  • It is time to purchase property and to build The Better Place campus. Please pray and give to see God’s vision fulfilled. – Thank God for no more delay according to Ezekiel 12:25 & 28. Pray for appointments to be made and kept where our Director, Roy Miller, will be able to meet with potential donors. Pray for the blessing of those donors and their joy in giving.
  • We thank God: Joel Marsh had completed work on the set of DVDs that contain all the teaching of the Third Session of our School of Prayer. Now, please continue to keep Joel in prayer as he works to produce the final Session – Session #4 – which will result in DVDs of these Sessions being available to any and all who desire them. Please pray these DVDs will be an effective tool for the ongoing equipping of the Church to be a House of Prayer for the Nations.
    Thank God for this answer to prayer: All money has come in to cover the cost of producing the SoP DVDs.
  • Please keep praying regarding a building that is for sale in Jamestown, NY. This building will provide a “downtown presence” were we can have a bookstore, a permanent home for our Healing Rooms ministry, a place to hold conferences, a temporary location for offices until we build our campus and much more. Please ask for God’s favor, wisdom, direction and provision for this. Thank you.
  • Please keep praying toward the complete fulfillment of God’s vision for The Better Place.

    Thank you for your prayers!

FOR INSPIRATION

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
