A young man wrote to me this week, asking how he can pray for us in Africa. Here is what I wrote him...would you join him in praying for breakthroughs and releases for Africa? We don't ask for ourselves, but for Africa's 860 million people and 54 countries to be transformed by Jesus.
1. We are launching our first All Nations CPx training program in Africa in February. We have over 80 applicants, all of them bearing fruit and proven in ministry, but most of them are living by faith and cannot afford the school fees. We need sponsors for the students - the fess are $1500 for three months of lectures, plus their outreach costs. (See www.all-nations.info and www.floydandsally.org for more information on CPx and All Nations).
2. We have found a building we believe will be great for All Nations offices and classrooms for our training programs. Please pray for a release of finances to lease it long term and for favor with the owners for negotiating for the lease. We are trusting for $250,000 long term to help buy land and build.
3. Please pray for male converts in the township of Ocean View - many of the men are addicted to drugs, alcohol, are unemployed, and don't take responsibility for their marriages or families. A revival among men!
4. There has been a breakthrough among young men who have come to the lord in Masiphumelele, another township where we work. Most of these guys came to Christ through a sports programs we have initiated. Pray for these young men to be strong, to lead their friends to Christ, and for a movement of righteousness to spread among the men of Masphumelele.
5. Tend Days for Jesus. December 10-20. Ten days of intense, extreme all-out intercession and worship and outreach. Ten Days for Jesus. Partnering with 24-7 prayer. "TDJ" is for students ages 18-30. Pray the right ones will come and be changed forever!
6. We are allies with a sister ministry and together we are launching a project we are calling Africa Challenge. The vision is to send teams into every nation in Africa, and every high school in every nation. The mission is to bring a message of abstinence for AIDS prevention. Those who sign a pledge will be formed into clubs, then taught to live a holy life through the power of the Spirit. The vision is to see a movement of student disciples making disciples. We need workers to lead, organize and spearhead Africa Challenge. PRAY for workers with God's heart for Africa. With God's help, we can help stem the tide of AIDS and raise up a generation of militant lovers of Jesus who will lay down their lives to see Africa brought to the feet of Jesus.
7. We are yearning to see a army of 1000 church planters to go north from Cape Town into the unreached people's and Muslim areas of Africa, then further into the Middle East, Central Asia and North India. Pray for laborers.
