A Call for Repentance and Prayer
Joel 2
Global Day of Prayer, 23 May 2010

The following are Prayers for the World for my Spanish speaking brothers and sisters in Christ

Espíritu del Dios viviente,

Fuera de ti, nada podemos hacer.

Transforma a la Iglesia a la imagen de Jesucristo.

Desata Tu poder de sanidad sobre los enfermos, libertad a los cautivos, y consuelo

a los afligidos.

Derrama tu amor en nuestros corazones y llénanos de compasión para poder

responder al llamado de los indigentes y los hambrientos, y poder acoger a los

huérfanos, las viudas y los ancianos.

Danos sabiduría y entendimiento ante los problemas tan complejos que enfrentamos

hoy día.

Ayúdanos a usar los recursos naturales para el bien de todos.


Espíritu Santo, necesitamos Tu consuelo y consejo.

Transforma nuestros corazones.


Dios Poderoso –Padre, Hijo y Espíritu Santo,

Unidos con creyentes de todo el mundo nos juntamos hoy para glorificar Tu

nombre.

Reconocemos que Tú eres el Creador del cielo y la tierra.

No hay nadie como Tú, santo y justo en todos Tus caminos.

Nos sujetamos a Tu autoridad y soberanía como Rey del universo.

Oramos a una voz, cediéndote el trono de nuestro corazón,

para honrarte ante

todo el mundo.


Señor y Dios, sólo Tú eres digno de nuestra alabanza

y adoración.



Padre nuestro en el cielo,

Gracias por amar tanto al mundo.

Diste a Tu único Hijo Jesucristo a morir en la cruz por nuestros pecados para ser

reconciliados contigo.

Gracias por darnos el derecho de llamarte Padre y ser llamados Tus hijos.

Nada nos puede separar de Tu amor.

Gracias Padre por adoptarnos en Tu familia a través de Jesucristo nuestro Salvador.



“Prayer is where the action is."

John Wesley


Since Global Day of Prayer, many are continuing in PRAYER ( 90 DAYS of PRAYER) but here are some reports/testimonies from the Global Day of Prayer, being shared via an email (July 20, 2010):


[omitted the first one...for security of that country completely though GDOP shared it without the country's name, I felt it was more safe to not mention it here]...

* On May 23, 2010 a united prayer for Bulgaria led by an East Orthodox priest was held as part of the Global Day of Prayer on St. Alexander Nevsky Square, right in front of the Cathedral in the capital city. The former Prime Minister greeted those present. The same was done by a guest from the European Parliament, who congratulated Bulgaria on its involvement in the Global Day of Prayer. A representative of the US Senate and Congress conveyed greetings to Bulgaria for the good initiative.

* About 150 people from 7 churches prayed locally and globally that day inBafang, Cameroon. As a result, one of the passers-by was marveled by the way the church prayed for every aspect of life, nation and the world on that day and came to Evangelist Michel TCHAGO’s church on Sunday 23rdMay and gave his life to Christ… because of the global prayer.

* One thing to be noted is that our prayers have not been in vain. The church is now accepted and favored by the authorities, churches are multiplying, people are being saved, the long abandoned city roads are now being maintained, the Dschang Junction that was a place of multiple deadly accidents every week has no longer recorded any deadly accident since the two prayer actions carried over there by the church. Bafoussam, Cameroon

* During the meeting there was such a freedom as people worshiped, travailed in prayer and connected with Christians outside their own circles. After the meeting was over, two young men continued to pray with heads bowed in reverence, recognizing their need to keep on praying. And that is what many of us will continue to do for the 90 days following the GDOP and beyond. It is our dream to see 24/7 prayer in our city with widespread support from all parts of the Body of Christ. In His time, this will happen. Saskatchewan, Canada

* The move of God surprised all of us here. Many cities of 16 districts in our country did the GDOP 2010 celebration and the Lord put all different churches of different denominations to pray together for the nation, Africa and the World. They decided for themselves to carry on with GDOP in their area each Pentecost Sunday as they experience for the first time prayer in unity. Central African Republic

* It was just very small, by the GDOP standard, just 14 people in room praying for 2 hours. But God was with us, it was a great start for our little church and it was great to be part of a bigger event. Languedoc Roussillon,Narbonne, France

* There was the spirit of unity among the believers. No one was address in the service not even different denominations. WE were One. I praise God for the church leaders because they are now joining hands and hearts together. Palau, Micronesia

* Here in the British Isles (which includes Channel Islands, Isle of Man and Ireland) we have seen how the Global Day of Prayer initiative has acted as an important catalyst for unity, prayer and action over these past 6 years.

For more reports please visit their website www.globaldayofprayer.com


"A new season has dawned for GDOP! The growing momentum of the last 10 years has now laid the foundation to saturate nations in prayer. It’s time to shift our focus from 220 nations to facilitate a lifestyle of prayer with as many people in as many places as possible. In this new season, we will no longer aim at the goal of having organized events in every single country of the world, but rather to increase the number of gatherings on Pentecost Sunday in smaller settings, such as local churches, family homes and businesses instead of stadiums and assembly halls."


PRAISE GOD FROM WHOM ALL BLESSINGS FLOW...WE MUST STAY ALERT & PRAY

COMPANY of ANGELS Dramatization

A current example exposing modern day slavery in the 90's in USA being ACTED out to make us AWARE...

Human Trafficking Project shared this From Blogging LA , which I'm sharing below (because I'm not too sure many of us would be visiting there to be made aware this, not being from LA)

COMPANY OF ANGELS
"Fifteen years ago in El Monte, California, law enforcement officials discovered 72 Thai nationals confined in an apartment complex ringed with barbed wire, lured to this country with promises of achieving the American dream. Under conditions of forced labor and slavery, some of the victims had been confined for as long as seven years. A seven-member Thai family led by a ringleader known as the notorious “Aunt Suni” was apprehended at the scene. The story made national and international headlines as the first case of modern-day slavery since the abolishment of slavery in the United States.

Written by Los Angeles playwright, Henry Ong, “Fabric” is the only known dramatization of the 1995 Thai garment workers’ slavery case. Company of Angels, Los Angeles’ oldest professional non-profit theater company, in association with the Thai Community Development Center (CDC), opened “Fabric” to sold-out audiences and standing ovations this past weekend.

Fabric is presented by Company of Angels, inside the Black Box at The Alexandria, 501 S. Spring Street, Downtown Los Angeles, and will run through August 8. Performances are on Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m., and Sundays at 4:30 p.m. Tickets at $20 can be purchased at www.companyofangels.org.

Founded in 1959 as an artists’ cooperative, Company of Angels recently celebrated its 50th anniversary, making it the oldest non-profit professional theater in Los Angeles. The theater produces works that reflect the diversity of Los Angeles and the issues the City faces.

Thai CDC was founded in 1994, one year before the El Monte slavery case, with a mission to advance the social and economic well being of low and moderate income Thais and other ethnic communities in the Greater Los Angeles. The issues of human trafficking and slavery are an integral part of Thai CDC’s work as a majority of trafficking cases involve Thai nationals. "

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!
