In what The Financial Times has called “one of the most serious challenges now facing the [European Union],” over three million Syrians have now fled the civil war raging in their homeland. With refugee camps overflowing in the Middle East, many have fled by foot into Europe, traveling thousands of miles and risking their lives to make it.
As the greatest humanitarian crisis since World War II unfolds, Germany has become the epicenter. According to estimates, upwards of 600,000 refugees from around the world are being processed in 2015 alone. But through this tragedy, God is doing something amazing. As the world descends on Germany, new opportunities are arising to step up and serve. Unreached people groups are arriving in safe zones and spiritual doors are opening.
Thanks for taking a few minutes to help me launch this great new prayer tool. My hope is that Praelude 20/20 will do two key things: 1. Provide such a convenient way for people to pray for me and God's work in Germany that we end up with prayer going on around the clock throughout the week! Think how cool that will be. And 2. Provide a simple, doable way for people to undergird that work financially.
To get started, click the link to "Pick a Prayer window" at the left. The sign-up process is quite simple and should only take a couple of minutes.
Pray also for me, that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel - Eph 6:19
If you are not signed up yet...I would love for you to do so. I need you. I know it takes a couple of minutes, but the impact you will make will be great!
I am seeing many people join in this initiative. Won't you join as well? Prayer does change things...and how we need God to work for us!
