Prayer Focus 21/03/2021 - 27/03/2021
- We praise God for over 2,800 new contacts as a result of our social marketing campaign! Pray that these people will stay connected, come to have a heart for DPM’s worldwide outreaches and grow spiritually by using Derek’s teaching material.
- As our China team monitors events and responses from within China, we know that 2021 will be a very critical year for believers here as the government increases its crackdown on all religions, including Christianity. Pray for protection over key workers inside China who print and distribute Derek’s materials and the USB devices.
- The China team is privileged to serve the Lord’s people in China. Thousands upon thousands of believers are being helped, and many tell us how Derek’s teaching is making a big difference. This is one example:
- "I’m longing for the Holy Spirit to guide me to live in truth and study more biblical teachings, to live a life that will glorify God and be of benefit to others. Derek's books are so valuable. May God bless your ministry and, through it, equip more and more of His disciples."
- Pray for many more people to become aware of our Vietnamese website (https://vi.dpmvietnam.org/) and avail themselves of the many free resources on it.
- Derek’s books have been distributed at a drug rehab centre in north Vietnam. Pray that many at this facility will read them and be powerfully touched by the Holy Spirit, saved and delivered from their addictions.
- Two leaders’ seminars and two outreaches were held recently following severe flooding. Many of Derek’s books were given away, including The Divine Exchange and the Self-Study Bible Course. Also, five people from a tribal group came to salvation!
- “Thanks a lot for the DPM books; they have blessed my church and me so much. I like them all, especially the Self-Study Bible Course. We use this book as a textbook. It is wonderful material to disciple believers. The other book I love is How to Pass from Curse to Blessing. The truth in this book is a must for everyone who wants to live a blessed life. Once again, I am so thankful to DPM. I am waiting for more books. May God bless you.” —Pastor D.H., North Vietnam
- The translation team in Chiang Mai is working on 23 books in the Thai and Lao languages. Pray for their protection and anointing to work speedily and accurately.
- Pray that more people will become aware of Derek’s teaching.
- Pray for God’s anointing and protection upon the Hindi and Tamil translators as they work on sub-titling 30 of Derek’s key messages for our YouTube channel.
- Pray for God’s protection, wisdom and anointing for Directors Elsie and Danny and the staff as they seek to reach many thousands of people in this nation of over 1.3 billion with Derek’s Bible teaching.
- Last December, we were unable to hold one large Christmas party for orphans and needy children due to Covid-19 restrictions and adverse weather, so we held separate parties at each orphanage and met with over 800 children total. They had a wonderful time, and most responded positively and accepted Jesus as Saviour.
- “When I was a teenager, I was given a Derek Prince teaching at church on the subject of God’s love. From the moment I read it, I saw a change take place in my life. Several weeks later, I was given several of Derek’s books by the pastor. As I read them, my life started changing. Derek Prince teaches the Word of God in a simple and practical way. I saved my pocket money and started collecting his teachings. I am so blessed by Derek’s books and have a desire in my heart to collect all his teachings for my personal library so that my own children will be blessed.” — Vijay
March 26—Sri Lanka
- Pray for good health and God’s wisdom and strength for coordinator Bishop Prince and his wife, Jayanthi, as they oversee the work in Sri Lanka.
- Sri Lanka has nine provinces and 25 districts. Pray for the Lord’s guidance and “open doors” for Bishop Prince so he can take Derek’s books to each area for distribution.
- Pray for God’s wisdom and clarity as to the best ways to reach more people.
- Pray for the Lord to connect us with Christian leaders who would eagerly use and share Derek’s teaching.
