Mission 4 Monday with Global Day of Prayer

Welcome to MISSION 4 MONDAY!
We were made for a mission!

This is where we share MISSIONS that have been placed on our hearts or in our lives. For God has given each of us a purpose & a unique plan to fulfill.

If you a new to Mission4Monday, please click here for more info .

A very special thanks to those of you (you know WHO you are) that faithfully have posted a MISSION4MONDAY whether you remember to link or not I appreciate it and if you are a regular and I notice, I have been linking you to MR. LINKY! Thank you for placing the button on your posts, I so appreciate it! YOU each have presented FABULOUS ideas weekly!

NEW FORMAT for MISSION 4 Monday: I no longer will be using the MR. LINKY for M4M. The reason is not due to lack of participation because the QUALITY of those that do participate is SUPERB! It isn't the quantity but the quality!!!

The reason is that I needed to decide between SUPER SUNDAY or MISSION 4 MONDAY. Without upgrading with Mr. Linky, I can only post one Mr. Linky at a time. That is why and when you will notice this:

10 Days of Prayer: Day 1, 2, 3, 4...

Part of my MISSION involves PRAYER! Prayer is essential for the HARVEST! Prayer & intercession should be a MISSION of each of us! Please share in this MISSION with GLOBAL DAY of PRAYER...
GLOBAL DAY OF PRAYER is coming...May 31st!!!



This is from an email I receive from GDOP: Global day of Prayer. Please PRAY:

10 Days of Prayer : Day 1 : 21 May 2009

REVIVE!  …Our Father who is in heaven…

 

Father God, You are the creator and father of all nations.

You sustain us by the power of your word.

We acknowledge that You alone are worthy to receive all praise and honor and glory.

As Christians from around the world, we enter into your presence through the new and living way that Jesus Christ opened for us by his blood, to kneel at the throne of grace.

We pray that you will revive the Church again through your Holy Spirit.

Answer the prayer of Jesus that we, as Church, will unite and stand as one family before You.

We pray for those believers who had fallen away that You will draw them back to You and bring them to repentance.

You are faithful and true to your promises.

Please reveal to us your loving, compassionate and merciful father’s heart.

Help us to obey your commandments and to trust You completely for our salvation, our sanctification and our daily walk.

Touch the hearts of millions of believers around the world to persist in prayer until we see the fulfillment of all your promises.

Release fresh movements of prayer in every nation of the world so that this generation may accomplish the purposes You have for each one of us.

Here am I, Lord, send me.

Amen

For Prayer points and topics for the nations go to:

 10 Days of Prayer : Day 2 : Friday, 22 May 2009

REVEAL!  …sanctify Your name…

 

Father, Son and Holy Spirit, You are the High and Lofty One who inhabits eternity, and your Name is holy.

You revealed your Fatherhood to us, through Jesus Christ, who is exalted, and at His Name every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord.

We call upon this name for salvation.

Your Name has been profaned among the nations and many people had forgotten your Name and had stretched out their hands to other gods. Please forgive us, and sanctify your Name so that all nations, even your adversaries, shall know that You are Lord and fear your Name.

Unite my heart to fear your Name so that I will depart from iniquity and will hold fast to your Name and not deny You.

With all those who know your Name, we put our trust in You and wait on your Name.

May your Word be translated and made available for every person on this earth to hear your Word and your Name proclaimed in their own language.

Blessed be Your Name, and let the whole earth be filled with your glory!

From the rising of the sun, to its going down, your Name shall be great and in your Name the nations will trust!

 Amen

10 Days of Prayer : Day 3 : Saturday, 23 May 2009

RULE! …May your kingdom come…

Lord Jesus Christ, You are the King of the Universe.

The scepter of your Kingdom is a scepter of righteousness.

Of the increase of your government and peace there will be no end.

From all the nations we will speak of the glory of your Kingdom and talk of your power, to make known to the sons of men your mighty acts, and the glorious majesty of your Kingdom.

We pray that many more people will hear the Word of the Gospel of the Kingdom so that there will be a great harvest of souls in our generation.

Let the hearing of your Word bring faith to many hearts.

Help us, who profess to be followers of Christ, to walk in the fullness of your Spirit and live in the likeness of Christ so that your kingdom will be seen in our lives.

As we bow before you in brokenness, come and soften our hearts, so that through the Church the Lordship of Jesus Christ will influence every part of our cities and societies.

We join with every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and on the sea, and all that is in them to sing: “To Him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb, be praise and honor and glory and power, forever and ever!”

Amen

 ***************************

10 Days of Prayer : Day 4 : Sunday, 24 May 2009 

TRANSFORM! …and may your will be done on earth as it is in heaven…

Praise be to Your Name, O God of the heavens, forever and ever.

Wisdom and power belong to You.

You change times and seasons.

You set up kings and depose them.

You give wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning.

You reveal deep and hidden things.

You know what lies in darkness, and light dwells with You.

Your will is that none should perish but all come to the knowledge of salvation through Jesus Christ.

Remove from our hearts all fear of man for wisdom begins with the fear of the Lord.

We pray for all those who are in authority.

Remove wicked council from governments and authorities.

Let righteousness and truth again be the foundation of our justice systems.

Open the doors for believers to influence and bless every aspect of commerce, arts, education and governance in ways that will impact and release the fear of God in our societies.

Let peace prevail in our nations so that the gospel of truth may be preached to every person on this earth.

Transform our hearts through the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit so that the righteousness, peace and joy of Christ’s kingdom will be demonstrated in and through the Church.

Amen

Global Day of Prayer May 31st email

This was my email for today from Global Day of Prayer Team. Please get involved or talk to your church about what they are doing for Global day of Prayer.

Today is:
International Day of Prayer for Turkey 18 April 2009 - CLICK HERE 


18/05/2009 email

14 DAYS TO GO

Will we see every nation participate this year? 
 
Now my eyes will be open and my ears attentive to the prayer that is made in this place.” 
2 Chron. 7:15


On 31 May 2009 hundreds of millions will gather to seek God’s face for the healing of their nations. Never ever in history have we seen such a ground swell of prayer! And this comes against the back drop of a global economic melt down, wars, rumors of wars, crime, violence, natural disasters and the HIV pandemic. Globally we are in desperate need for God’s intervention. Will our prayer make a difference? YES, if we adhere to God’s conditions of seeking his face in humility and repentance and if we intentionally choose to live holy lives, His ears WILL be attentive to our prayers and He Will heal our land and the nations of the world.
 
As we are reporting from the 
Americas today we are so happy to say that 
for the first time all the Caribbean nations are participating along with every single Latin/Central American nation as well as the United States of America, Canada and Greenland.  

When looking at the information we received from different nations, we once again realized how diverse the nations are and how the diversity will be reflected in the different ways they will be conducting the Global Day of Prayer.   
 
>From 
Brazil is reported:
 Brazil has been fully engaged in the GDOP and it is amazing to see the e-mails coming from all sorts of cities and towns saying: " I have participated in the last 3 previous years and we want to participate again this year. This is a great blessing”    What has really blessed us is to see that not only big cities are participating. Some are in the extreme and remote areas of the country, surrounded by sand or jungle. We have information that even indigenous tribes will participate. 
Some pastors are so passionate about it that they write to us saying: " We will put a marquee in the main square and will have all day and night prayer time." Another one said: "This is bringing such a unity to the local church in our town."

One of the most exciting testimonies comes from 
Belize where a 7th grade teacher is reporting on how her 7th graders 
“are creating posters to create awareness of the global day of prayer in this area.  As well they are all writing prayers to submit to the local Christian station, Integrity Radio here in Belize City, to be shared with the listeners. Slowly they are pledging to dedicate their day to prayer and worship.  We know that this is very, very small in comparison to happenings around the world; however, we just want you to know that we are recognizing the event.  We are going to be in the millions around the world dedicating a day to prayer, praise and worship of Jesus Christ our Lord.”

The USA has already registered approximately 80 + events across the nation and there are new registrations coming in daily and in Canada more or less 25 cities will be participating.
 
In 
Argentina something wonderful has happened after a lot of struggle to truly get unity in prayer.  There will be more than 80 GDOP gatherings in all the major cities and in Buenos Aires, the capitol, pastors from 30 surrounding towns will be united in prayer at the Congress Building. 
 
Apart from numerous events across the country, 
Chile is reporting
 a massive prayer meeting outside the Presidential Palace.  5000 people are expected to be on their knees in repentance and crying out to God”.
 
Are you part of this amazing season where God is busy re-writing history through the prayers of the saints? His promise stands firm, now it is time for His children to take up their responsibility. It’s not too late to still be part of the biggest prayer meeting ever in the history of mankind!  Find any information you need onwww.globaldayofprayer.com or contact us oninfo@globaldayofprayer.com.

Did you play your part and send the information to as many as possible?

Love and Blessings to all

The Global Day of Prayer Team


MISSION 4 MONDAY and links (May 18th) are in the next post!!!

Purpose of Mission 4 Monday for ALL!

I'm reposting the original post with the information for this MEME!


Welcome to the "MISSION 4 MONDAY" information
" YOU WERE MADE FOR A MISSION"*

Matthew 28:19 19 "...Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, ..." NIV

The purpose of MISSION 4 MONDAY is to share YOUR MISSION each week.

According to Rick Warren* in his book "The Purpose Driven Life"...
"You were made for a Mission" is Purpose #5

"God is at work in the world and He wants YOU to join Him."

"The assignment is called YOUR MISSION..."

"Your ministry is your service to believers and

YOUR MISSION is your service to unbelievers."

"God has given you a Life Message to share..."

It can be your personal mission to accomplish that week: long term or short term.
It can be a MISSION country that you would like to share about and pray specifically.
It can be a MISSION that means something special to you that you'd like to do.
It can be a MISSION short term or long term experience, in your community or somewhere else in the world. You can focus on a different missionary from your church or that you support.
It can be a MISSION interest or concern that means a great deal to you and why it does.
It can be the MISSION of the ministry of your blog: what you hope to accomplish and what is being accomplished...as a tool of self evaluation.

Click here for definition of MISSION by Merriam-Webster if this still does not seem clear.

Focus on what you would like to do for the Great Commission or what people group is your focus

YOU decide what you would like to write about as your MISSION...

PRAY ABOUT IT or PRAY FOR IT

WRITE ABOUT YOUR MISSION CONCERN
or JUST WRITE YOUR PRAYER for that MISSION

BE CREATIVE~SHARE WITH US~SONG, SCRIPTURE, SCENES, YouTube...
PHOTOS, GRAPHICS just stay with the MISSION theme

COME BACK here on Monday AND LINK up with Mr. Linky
simple add your name and the specific MISSION post

(if you can't think of a mission use mine and write what you or your church are doing)


If you'd like to join and post about your mission, you can copy this image on your post on each Monday in the following way.

1) Right click on the image
2) Save the photo with "SAVE IMAGE AS" in your photos
3) and then just add it as a photo.
or sometimes it's on my main blog: aMazing Grace~Mazes, Messes, Miracles http://mazmagi.blogspot.com/.

It's not important to me if the button is linked it's just a way to easily identify the post to MISSION 4 MONDAY meme and so others can see them.

Let me know if there are any problems (not that I know how to fix it but I'll at least try or ask) or if you have any questions, just leave it in the Comments. See you on Monday!

Mission 4 Monday sadly ended last year as a meme, but I continue to share here and I know others also share various MISSIONS, especially the people above. Check them out!!! Encourage and perhaps join us.
Since my life is a MISSION, I share whenever I can. There are many of you, who do community involvement/church events, volunteer opportunities or know missionaries that you could share to motivate others. Motherhood and Homeschooling are MISSIONS and callings!!!
Each of these are MISSIONS and important to encourage others.
If you are doing something or share someone's MISSION on your blog, please leave your info in the comments anytime! Hopefully others will notice & come visit. THANKS!
