January 1998 Update

Sherri and I would like to share a very urgent need. As the ministry to influencer’s grows all over the Chicago area we are reminded of the profound impact and need for daily prayer.

All of the kings and great warriors of the Old Testament had Prayer Warriors. The purpose of an Prayer Warrior was to assist the soldier by lightening his load. This enabled the soldier to be fresh for the battle. The role of the Prayer Warrior was critical to the soldier. Without this support, the chances of injury or death were much greater.

In the same way, prayer support for Executive Ministries is critical to ensure that God will continue to use us as tools for reaching the leadership in today’s society. Sherri and I would like to encourage as many of you as possible to commit to pray for us without ceasing and to lighten the load by lifting us daily up to the Lord.

Ephesians 6:10-20 commands us to put on the full armor of God so that we will be protected from spiritual attacks. You, the Prayer Warriors, are a crucial part of this ministry. As you use the enclosed bookmarks in your Bible or day timer please remember to pray for us on a daily basis. Without the faithful, dedicated prayers of our Prayer Warriors this ministry would be fruitless and barren. Pray that in all our ministry work we will be empowered to hold high the promises of life in Christ Jesus.

If you are willing to commit to daily prayer as a Prayer Warrior would you please indicate your decision by marking the appropriate box on the enclosed envelope with an x and return it to us. You then will receive special prayer requests in the mail accompanied by praises that will update previous prayer requests through our monthly newsletter. We want the Prayer Warriors to completely cover this ministry in prayer to the point that not a day will pass without a prayer being lifted up on our behalf.

As you read this we are at the “International School of Theology”, Campus Crusade for Christ’s seminary. During the period of January 8-21 we are required to complete 3 credit classes in Biblical and Theological studies. Please lift us up in prayers for travel mercy and that God will continue to develop the academically skills that will increase our usefulness in reaching the lost.

Special Prayer Request! We are praying fervently that maybe someone knows someone else (Christian Auto Dealership, Executive Car Upgrade, People moving out of State, etc.) who can donate a car, or is willing to guarantee a monthly car payment, allowing us to secure more reliable transportation for ministry appointments and travels. Rolf’s car is 11 years old, well past 100,000 miles, and burns weekly 3 quarts of oil. It’s just a matter of time before he gets stuck in traffic looking for a ride home.

We love hearing from you. Drop us a line and let us know how God is working in your life, as well as how we can pray for you and your family!

May God bless you abundantly throughout 1998!
