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
- June/July 2018

 

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:

  • ADDICTION RESPONSE MINISTRY

    • Praise; this ministry continues to meet a vital need as it grows by leaps and bounds with regular meetings being held in more and more locations. The “Clean, Sober, and Saved” curriculum is used in most locations, but also the “We Believe” model. Please keep all meetings in prayer for God’s presence and for captives to addiction to be set free.
    • This ministry has become so demanding; full-time staff is really needed and that requires money.

    CHAUTAUQUA LAKE REGION MEN OF INTEGRITY
    • The Chautauqua Lake Men of Integrity has held three breakfast meetings this year. In each case God blessed abundantly with excellent speakers and encouraging fellowship. Please continue to pray for this ministry and the men who are leaders as they seek God regarding a special fall-season event.
  • WOMEN OF ENCOURAGEMENT

    • Praise; God continues to grow this ministry and to use the monthly gathering for breakfast, worship, and impartation. Women are truly being encouraged in their faith walk and the unity of the Church is continually being strengthened. This is impacting the atmosphere of the entire region. 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.

  • LEADERSHIP

    • Please keep our Director, Roy Miller, in prayer as he speaks in various churches most Sundays, ministers to pastors, and as he visits with potential gifters of The Better Place.
    • It is time for the financial floodgates of Heaven to open with provision for much needed full-time professional staff. Please petition and thank God daily for releasing the provision. We need secretarial staff, a business manager/treasurer, media and PR staff, and an events facilitator. We also need the Addiction Response Ministry staff.

  • SCHOOLS OF PRAYER

    • Much is being done these days, with the help of 3iNetworking in Erie, PA to promote the purchase and use of our School of Prayer DVD set and also to set up conferences where our Director, Dr. Miller, will teach on prayer. Please hold these initiatives in prayer. Check out this video trailer: https://youtu.be/f_1Uq315wJ0
    • Our Agape Prayer Ministry School is scheduled for the 19th & 20th of October this year. The School will be hosted by the Wiltsie Community Church in Russell PA. Please keep this vital School in prayer and pray for TBP Board member Carles Moore who will serve as our Director. You may get registration materials at TBP web site. http://www.thebetterplace.org/equipping-agapePrayerSchool.html

  • UGANDA MISSIONS

    • 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.
    • Day Spring Christian School in Kampala, Uganda needs at least $25,000 as soon as possible to make improvements to their facility to satisfy government regulations and to purchase some property.
    • Pastor Eddie Kizito will be traveling to the States on the 4th of August and spend six weeks here. Eddie oversees the Day Spring School. Please pray for open doors for Eddie to speak about the needs of the School and to share about the amazing difference this School is making in the lives of the young people who are students there. If you want Eddie to speak at your church or organization, please give our Director, Roy, a call at 716/488-9918 or roy@thebetterplace.org
    • Join us in praising God for the May mission to Uganda. Our team was able to visit several of our project locations and to teach & preach in a variety of venues. We were also able to give away hundreds of new Bibles in the English language, plus Luganda, and Acholi. – See TBP Facebook for photos and a narrative account of this mission [begin by scrolling back to the 3rd of May].
    • We are doing so much in Uganda that our Board agreed to pursue the creation of a new ministry – A foundation that will be called “East Africa Initiate and Sustain Foundation.” This will not be a ministry of TBP, but it will be a sister ministry to which we will transfer much of what we are doing in Uganda. Pray for favor with the whole process of creating a new foundation with 501(C)(3) status.
  • BOARD OF DIRECTORS

    • Our Board of Directors is seeking four new members.
    • Praise; the presence of God was so wonderful at our Board meeting on the 2nd of June, no one thought twice about going beyond our stated adjournment time of 8:00 p.m. as we continued to bask in the presence of the Spirit until past 9:00.
  • ONE IN CHRIST

    • Praise for the mighty presence and work of the Spirit again at the annual community Maundy Thursday service this past March. There were miracles; as a pizza delivery man will attest!
    • Please keep praying toward the complete fulfillment of God’s vision for The Better Place. [Go to our web site at thebetterplace.org to read the whole vision]
    • You can track all of our 2018 activities and ministry on our Facebook timeline;

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
