College of Prayer International

What joy to think of the new College of Prayer Campuses launched in Italy, England, Taiwan, and Nigeria this past month! We praise the Lord for this new territory that He has led us into and for the privilege of sharing the teachings and leading them in the Lord's Prayer Pattern. We are now in 71 countries around the world. The number of Campuses have doubled since February! How we praise God and thank you for your prayers that have gone before us every step of the way.
 
Psalm 12:6 says "the words of the Lord are flawless". I love this about God's Word! There is nothing false or impure or untrue regarding the Word of God. It is completely whole and perfect. This is why the Word of God is so powerful. To pray God's Word and sing God's Word and speak God's Word and quote God's Word brings power because it is from God's very lips. As we pray these scriptures this month, may we declare them with confidence because they are God's words.
 
With gratefulness,
 
Prayer Team Director
 
DECLARE THE FATHER'S LOVE FOR OUR TEAM
"God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.” Romans 5:5
 
We are so thankful for all our leaders who are traveling to lead College of Prayer Modules all over the world. Pray that each day they would be filled with the Holy Spirit to minister in His power and not their own strength. Pray that they would be overflowing with the love of God and that they would know that they come to each Module in the full measure of the blessing of Christ. Pray that they would be protected from the enemy, and kept healthy and strong in spirit to know the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
 
DECLARE THE GREATNESS OF GOD'S NAME
“Praise his name, proclaim his salvation day after day. Declare his glory among the nations!” Psalm 96:2-3
 
God is our Waymaker, Miracle Worker, Promise Keeper, Light in the Darkness!
God can make a way where there seems to be no way. He carves a new path in the hearts and lives of people who feel like they have hit a wall. He is the Waymaker!
He is also able and willing to do miracles! How thankful we are for those He choses to heal and those He delivers from enemy attacks. He is a Miracle Worker!
He is also true to His Word. He keeps His promises. He is a Promise Keeper!
He brings light to the darkness. He saves and delivers people from the darkness of this world into His Kingdom of light, hope, peace and love. He is the Light in the Darkness!
 
DECLARE THE ADVANCEMENT OF CHRIST'S KINGDOM
"The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ." Revelation 11:15

Let us keep asking the Lord for a harvest among these unreached people groups!
