My Dear Pray-ers,
Today is ALL About Conference Call Praying:
I am REALLY sorry for the length of this email. But take a moment to scan it because in it you’ll see:
- What they are
- How they are organized
- Fun Insights
- Family growth
- Bro. Bill (who none of us met, and now won’t untill we get to heaven)
- Our SWAY (a digital storyboard)
- Our Facebook page
Many of you know that Don Harrington, my prayer partner and I have the opportunity to lead about 30 Prayer Conference Calls per week.
Basically, Conference Call Praying is akin to the Old Fashioned Cottage Prayer Meetings.
– Gathering people to pray, who have like minded burdens.
Our prayer times are “loosely” organized into:
– Praising the Lord
– Praying for Family, and
– Praying for our church/ministry
But sometimes the organization changes.
This 1 minute video shows you how it changed.
– Praising the Lord!
– I define the difference in Praising and Thanking as, “Praising is Him centered whereas Thanking is me centered.”
Can you imagine an entire 15 minutes Praising God? It was, and still is, phenomenal!
Every, repeat, EVERY Prayer Conference Call is different!
And our Family is now Larger
The other thing that I find fascinating is how our family has grown. And when I say, “our” I mean not only my prayer partner and I. But the people on the calls too!
It’s the most amazing thing to me, not only are the different calls with different people, well, different, but often the calls from week-to-week with the same people are different. It is incredibly exciting!
Please take the time to read the article where I am a bit transparent and talk about how this “family meeting” or “family reunion,” as it was called, helped me get a sense of what it will be like to meet Jesus. It completely surprised me! To read my post you can click on the photo above or CLICK HERE.
Speaking Of Family
Let me tell you about Bro. Bill.
He has been in heaven for a couple years. As a result of the Monday, Wednesday, Friday Men’s Conference Calls we all got to know Bill intimately. We all miss him and we often pray that the Lord would re-hear Bill’s prayers, his prayers for his family, for his friends, for his pastor and for his church. But let me tell you the rest of the story.
None of us had ever met Bill. Somehow he got onto our calls. Do you see what that means? It means that the FIRST-TIME we will ever see Bill, will be alongside Christ when we cross over Jordan.
Finally, Conference Call Prayer Testimonials.
In these testimonials you’ll read:
– Divine Dynamic
– To Pray with and FOR Others is Wonderful
– Praying with other pastors helps me rest in the Lord
– I look forward to the call
– I was scared, but after a few calls I began to pray
– Incredibly grateful for the impact on our ministry
I have left their testimonials nearly word-for-word what they wrote. CLICK HERE to see them.

Only if you are interested:
Would you consider being a part of the 100 people we are looking for to commit to $25.00/month for our Kenya Ministry (See how far along we are).
This will allow us to make one of our part time teachers a full time employee and enable Mark to return to Kenya to continue rebuilding the foundation of prayer in that country.
Lots going on every day!
Please take the time to check it out, and, if you will, use it to pray for us as we continue to pray that God will open doors so that we can spread this message and spread it boldly.
Thank you for praying.
