First Nations Monday
“Holding Up The People In Prayer”
Monday, February 23, 2015 – WK 8 – Enthusiasm To Preach
WHEN WAS the last time you were truly enthusiastic about sharing the Gospel, knowing in your spirit that Christ’s return is drawing near?
In Revelation 1:3, John says that our Creator will bless everyone who hears and obeys His prophecy, and that the time is almost here.
After years of evangelism among our Native people, some reports suggest that less than 2% are serving Christ. Those involved in First Nations ministry carry a heavy burden to reach the lost before Jesus returns.
TODAY, I INVITE YOU to pray with me that our Native people and those serving in Native Ministry will be dedicated to spreading the message of Christ.
2 Thessalonians 3:1 says, “Finally, our friends, please pray for us. This will help the message about the Lord to spread quickly, and others will respect it, just as you do.”
Ask our Creator to allow His message to spread quickly through the joyful cooperation of our First Nations people and those serving in Native Ministry.
ADDITIONAL SCRIPTURES (4 translations: The Scriptures, CEV, Amplified, KJV): To read all the additional Scriptures, in the following 4 translations, as well as listen to the audio of this prayer point, visit the http://www.firstnationsmonday.com/prayerguide/wk08.htm .
“The Scriptures” is a translation that includes the original Hebrew names and has the books in chronological order. The Contemporary English Version (CEV) is a translation that is written for ‘oral tradition’ peoples and it flows well while reading it aloud. The Amplified version is one where meanings of words and phrases are ‘amplified’ for better understanding. The King James Version (KJV) is the translation that works well with Strong’s Concordance. Please also note the links to Scripture in Cherokee.

** As we approach 15 years of our prayer mobilization project and international networking of prayer for First Nations / Native American / American Indian people, I am reminded of my own journey through periods of decreased enthusiasm and indifference. How much more do the warriors on the front line struggle through peaks and valleys. Today, even more than yesterday, finds this week’s prayer point vital and relevant. Thank you for your continued prayer and support.
