Prayer Calendar August 2014
“Therefore I stationed some of the people behind the lowest points of the wall at the exposed places, posting them by families, with their swords, spears and bows. After I looked things over, I stood up and said to the nobles, the officials and the rest of the people, “Don’t be afraid of them. Remember the Lord, who is great and awesome, and fight for your families, your sons and your daughters, your wives and your homes. When our enemies heard that we were aware of their plot and that God had frustrated it, we all returned to the wall, each to our own work.”

Brandon Rosko will be joining Keith to lead men’s breakout sessions so begin lifting up these men as they begin to raise funds and prepare.
2 Keith will be at Tennessee Avenue Baptist Church in Bristol, TN through Monday, leading a Life Action Pre-Summit. The weekend kicks off tonight with a men’s meeting. Pray for God’s touch on men who will lead the church in seeking God for revival.
3 A full day of preaching and prayer at Tennessee Avenue Baptist Church is on the agenda. This weekend is designed to help prepare the church for an upcoming Life Action Summit that will last for 11 days.
4 Keith is working on a new REAL MOMENTUM book. His daughter, Madison has helped greatly with this project. Pray for clarity and focus as they work on the finishing touches. It could go to print as early as this week.
5 A team of men from several men’s ministries who make up the Iron Sharpens Iron Network will be meeting in Chicago today through Thursday. Ask God to give Brian Doyle and the men participating, wisdom and favor in preparing next year’s conference schedule.
6 Many men are starting to work toward a movement of men in preparing for the upcoming REAL MOMENTUM Golf Challenge. Lift up this event and pray for God to continue using John White of Golf for Goodness Sake and our Golf Tournament Chairmen, Tony Williams and John Hall. Tournament day is October 2, 2014.
7 Fewer than 10% of U.S. churches are able to establish or maintain a vibrant men’s ministry. Pray that God would burden pastors and all men to begin establishing a viable ministry to men in their church and community.
8 Pray for the men and women and children who will attend the REAL MOMENTUM Weekend at Foothills Community Church in Marble Hill, GA. Coed sessions start tonight!
9 At Foothills Community Church men will be challenged by the message of REAL MOMENTUM. Pray that the men of this church will ignite a movement of men in the homes, church, and community.

11 Part of the mission of REAL MOMENTUM is to engage men. Pray for the Board and other men who will make up the team that will begin the early stages of developing a Men’s App with strong content to help men win in every area of their life. Steve Hyland will be the lead on this project. The vision of the REAL MOMENTUM App is that it will be accessed and used by men more than The Weather or ESPN App.
12 Tonight dozens of men and their wives will attend the REAL MOMENTUM Golf Challenge Tee-Off Party at the Cherokee Cattle Company in Marietta, GA. Ask God to use Keith, Nichole, the Board and special guest Dr. Johnny Hunt, who will be giving a special challenge to raise awareness and funds for a movement of men.

15 BBQ is on the menu tonight for the men participating in the men’s weekend in Odenville, AL at Bethel Baptist. Ask the Lord Jesus to move in each man’s heart, giving him a desire to be the man of God at home.
16 Men are made for gaps! “So I sought for a man among them who would make a wall, and stand in the gap before Me on behalf of the land, that I should not destroy it; but I found no one” (Ezekiel 22:30). Pray that men everywhere will step up and fill the gaps.
17 Ask God to bring to your mind the men in your life. As He does, begin praying for them. Pray for their spiritual growth as a leader in the home. Pray that God would give them a thirsty soul and a hungry spirit to live out Biblical manhood wherever he lives, works or plays.
18 Madison Boggs turns 15 today! Please pray for her spiritual growth in her relationship with God, her family at home and in the world she lives. Ask God to minister to her in ways that will affirm His love and faithfulness to her. Join us in praising God for the life of Madison!

21 Tonight is the quarterly board meeting for REAL MOMENTUM. May God continue to lead and guide our team with grace and favor as we pursue Him in faithful obedience.
22 Jesus showed us how to grow a healthy church: focus on men first. REAL MOMENTUM exists to equip churches to bring ministry to men to the forefront of their discipleship ministry. Pray that more and more churches will be intentional in ministry to men.
23 REAL MOMENTUM Ministries is organized around the five best practices of prayer, ministry model, board development, administration and fundraising. Pray that the board will continue to leverage these best practices to keep our ministry viable and sustainable for many generations to come.
24 Pray for those hearing the message of REAL MOMENTUM this month. Pray that God would ignite a movement of men for His glory transforming families and churches to the ends of the earth.
25 Dozens of ministry partners have been raising awareness and rallying support from their friends and family for REAL MOMENTUM through the Golf Challenge. Pray that God would bless our efforts for His glory.
26 Several men will be participating in our monthly prayer conference call at 7AM today. There is no doubt that we need revival, especially among men. We are fervently praying for God to move in the lives of men. Join us!
27 Christ loved women and children, but he spent most of his time and energy developing a handful of men. He knew a truth we’ve forgotten: if you transform men, you transform the family, the community and the culture. Pray to that end today!
28 One of our core values is to partner with ministries and organizations for a movement of men. Pray that God would move on several ministries and businesses to become a Corporate Sponsor for our upcoming REAL MOMENTUM Golf Challenge.
29 The devil has a much more effective plan to reach men than do most churches and REAL MOMENTUM exists to see that change. Pray that God would use our ministry to bring awareness and focus for intentional discipleship for boys and men everywhere, beginning at home.
30 Pray for the Ministries who are in partnership with REAL MOMENTUM. Ministry Ventures, National Coalition of Ministries to Men, Iron Sharpens Iron, Man in the Mirror, Iglesia Bautista Vida Nueva Santiago, Dominican Republic and others.
31 Give God praise for what He has done this month. Thank Him for being faithful, holy, merciful, full of grace and love. May everything done bring glory to God through Jesus, His Son.
