March 31—United States
- Pray that DPM’s participation in select events for college students to be held this year across the nation will result in many students connecting with the ministry and benefitting from Derek’s teaching material.
- Pray for the staff involved to be used by the Lord to pray for and encourage students they connect with.
Pray for the directors, staff, outreach workers and their families at over 50 DPM bases. Some are battling cancer, other serious health issues, and various crises. Pray for all to walk in good health, strength, favor, provision, anointing and protection, and for DPM worldwide to be a “cancer-free zone.” (A listing of DPM offices with directors’ names is on our website.)
April 2—Sri Lanka
DPM–India Directors, Elsie and Danny, returned to Sri Lanka to minister in February, taking 1,200 SD cards loaded with Derek’s teaching. Pray that the teaching on every card given to Christian leaders will transform lives and enable them to stand against the forces of darkness and then train others to do so.
Praise & Thanksgiving:
We praise God for the pastor who is helping us distribute Derek’s books to many other pastors and leaders throughout Sri Lanka.
- In the last two years, the team has openly celebrated the national Thanksgiving and Prayer Day, giving the book, Shaping History Through Prayer and Fasting to Christians and authorities.
- As the influence of evangelical Christians increases here, pray they would have the right attitude towards leaders. With presidential and parliamentary elections this year, the fate of the nation is at stake. Pray that reactionary post-soviet and pro-Russian forces won’t take revenge.
Work continues on the critical project to put as much of Derek’s material as possible in different formats on USB devices and SD cards so that all who can will have these personal "libraries." Also, DPM’s Chinese websites are supplying Derek’s teaching to many, and more book printing is in process, with Christ’s Last Order appearing for the first time in China in the coming months. Pray for God’s provision and blessing for each of these projects and methods of serving China’s Church.
Praise & Thanksgiving:
Last year was turbulent for the Church in China, with increasing pressure from the authorities. But the Lord kept the team inside China safe and productive, which is so important because of the impact of Derek’s Chinese teaching on China's church. The all-Chinese DPM team outside China has increased in productivity. Praise the Lord for His blessing and protection!
- In the midst of political turmoil and uncertainty, pray for many people to come to God and find true and lasting security in Him.
- Pray for open doors to Slovak prisons and fruitful cooperation with local prison chaplains so that many prisoners will receive truth and hope through Derek´s teachings.
- Pray for more volunteers to help serve the Body of Christ in Slovakia more effectively.
- The DPM team has supplied a partner ministry with Derek’s book, Life-Changing Spiritual Power, that was distributed to about 400 pastors and other Christian leaders in several locations. Pray for these teachings to greatly bless these leaders and that they will use them to teach others.
- Pray for God’s protection over the DPM team in this Buddhist nation.
