Phil Miglioratti opened the winter leadership meeting of PrayerLink asking whether Southern Baptists are more interested in developing prayer guides (booklets and other resources about prayer) or prayer guides (individuals in congregations who help guide church members to be prayer warriors in the house of God).

Drawing his lesson from the purification of Jesus recorded in Luke 2, Miglioratti pointed to two individuals in Scripture who serve as prayer guides for twenty-first century believers—Anna and Simeon.

These two relatively obscure characters in the overall narrative of Scripture were “led by the Spirit to step up at just the right moment to announce God’s redemptive moment,” Miglioratti, prayer consultant for the Illinois Baptist State Association and national coordinator of Loving Our Communities to Christ, said.

Noting that we know nothing about them beyond this single instance, Miglioratti observed that Anna and Simeon both frequented the house of God and were devoted to the Lord in prayer.

“It is interesting to note that Luke 2:40 follows Luke 2:22–39,” he added.

Luke 2:40 states that Jesus grew up and became strong, filled with wisdom, and God’s grace was on Him.

“We cannot underestimate the power of prayer on people’s lives,” Miglioratti noted, urging the PrayerLink leadership team to focus its ministry objectives on creating “Luke 2:40 followers of Jesus”—those who grow strong in the Lord, who are filled with the Spirit, and who reflect the grace of God in how they live their lives.

PRAY FOR PRAY.NETWORK MEMBER PAUL COVERT

Would you consider praying for Paul Covert.  He is the prayer pastor at Central Christian Church in Mesa AZ and a featured member of Pray.Network.  Since June he has been having trouble with his eyes.  The doctors are still trying to determine if he has optic nerve swelling or a tumor.  The optic nerves are so small that both look the same in an MRI.  The only way to tell for sure is to do a biopsy but that will cause Paul to loose his vision for sure.  He is presently visiting doctors to determine a treatment plan.  He is asking for prayer for healing and that he can represent Christ well during this trial.

Thanks,

Paul Covert

If you live within driving range of Indianapolis, you might want to check out the Midwest Prayer Conference, put on by the Church Prayer Leaders Network and scheduled for the Indianapolis area on September 25-26.  I've attended this conference multiple times and each time have come away both equipped and inspired, with a renewed commitment not only to personal prayer but to leading others in prayer.  I'm hoping to have a Spotlight interview with Jon Graf about the conference in the next couple of weeks.  Stay tuned, and meantime, check out the conference's web page (link above).

Last week in Turkey the WEA MC met...

They drafted a "Letter from Smyrna to the Global Church" (World Evangelical Association  Mission Commission Global Consultation, 2014)

- News - WEA Mission Commission

Letter from Smyrna to the Global Church
May 2014

To our brothers and sisters in Christ,

Grace and Peace.

We, the Mission Commission of the WEA, have been gathered for five days in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ in the setting of the Apostle John's letter to the seven ancient churches of Revelation 2 and 3.

This setting has been a profound reminder of the 2000 years of church history to which we are connected, of the struggles to ensure that the apostolic witness should be passed down faithfully, and of the reality that we today receive that witness because men and women laid down their lives rather than compromise the gospel. It has been a vivid reminder that from the beginning of the church it has been costly, even sometimes to martyrdom, to declare that Jesus Christ is Lord and he alone is to be worshipped.

The letter continues...

Thank you so much for your prayer support. Satan did indeed try to thwart what God wanted to do through our last volunteer team but your prayers made him powerless and the team had a wonderful week serving at the Baptist Primary School in Longido, Tanzania. They were able to do a vacation Bible school and sting 400 meters of a 3 strand barbed wire fence.

I was reminded that it has been a while since I have shared what God is doing in our ministry. We have been very busy in 2014 with volunteers coming every month. We are getting ready for the next group coming April 5th. 

With the volunteers we have seen an increase in opposition from Satan. We would greatly appreciate your prayers and the prayers of those you lead as we continue to serve among the Maasai and that the forces of evil would be vanquished.

Please follow our blog www.tzmaasaiconnection.blogspot.com to get more information about what God is doing.

Blessings,

Pam

What is the relationship between our prayers and God's work in revival? This theme provides useful insights on this issue from people who have seen God at work firsthand. The interview with Ben Patterson urges church leaders to make prayer their primary task and encourages them to hope for God to work mightily through his body, the church. Practical articles give tools to help ministry leaders start a prayer ministry, create an environment for corporate (and individual) repentance, and cultivate discernment to hear God's voice.
