1 Tomorrow morning, 77 TIME meets early for Dad’s of young men and women who attend Mount Paran Christian School. Pray that God would ignite a movement of men that will result in generational transformation. Lift up Steve Cannon and Dwight Hicks as they lead this great group.
2 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.
3 Keith and Board Member Steve Hyland will be participating in the Fatherhood Summit at WinShape Retreat today through Friday. Pray that God would open doors for ministry partnerships and use the scheduled worship and prayer time to strengthen the vision for a movement of men.
4 The spring speaking schedule for Keith and Nichole is completely full. Pray that the Lord Jesus would grant wisdom and grace through each opportunity in engaging men, encouraging families, and equipping churches for a movement of men.
5 Nichole will be the keynote speaker at the Georgia Baptist Ministers Wives’ Retreat January 30-31. Pray for God’s touch upon her as she prepares. Ask God to give Nichole the time she desires and needs in ministering to these women of God.
6 Keith will be traveling to Springfield, MO to lead a Life Action Pre-Summit at Jefferson Avenue Baptist Church where Craig Fields serves as pastor. Pray that God would use this weekend to prepare the church in seeking Him for revival.
7 Pray that men in your life, family, and church will grow spiritually Ask God to give them a hunger for the Word and a consuming passion to be obedient.
8 Pastor John Webb and his team of men are preparing for the first men’s conference at New Life Baptist Church in Santiago, Dominican Republic. Pray that God would give favor for each session and the REAL MOMENTUM team who will be joining them January 20-27, 2015.
9 Several men will be participating in our morning prayer conference call at 7:30am today. There is no doubt we need revival, especially among men. We are fervently praying for God to move in the lives of men. Join us!
10 Take time today to pray for men to stand up and be counted among those who want to do great things for God’s kingdom. Pray for the empowering work of the Holy Spirit to help men be fully committed to truth and to act in love.
11 Lift up Clark Osborn, Midwest Regional Director for REAL MOMENTUM, as he continues to prepare for the upcoming Iron Sharpens Iron Men’s Equipping Conference. Ask God to prepare each speaker and the volunteers as we anticipate ministering to hundreds of men in the Omaha area.
12 The Lord has appointed men to be leaders in the home, church and workplace. Please pray for men to seek and receive the wisdom and guidance needed to be the best leader they can possibly be this day.
13 Pray for men to seek Godly friends and companionship. Pray these relationships will encourage men in their accountability before God, and will not lead them into sin.
14 Keith believes that the largest unengaged people group in America today are men, even though they attend worship services on Sundays and even conferences on the weekend. Ask God to speak into the heart of every man, helping him see just how important he really is to his family and his church.
15 Pray for men to win at home. Pray that they have real momentum. Pray that their family is moving towards God and not away from Him, that their children are running towards Christ and that they are doing their best to help them get there.
16 Every father wants to be a better dad. Pray for fathers to seek the Lord on how to grow in being a dad and how to build a stronger family that loves Jesus and others.
17 Pray for the Ministries who are in partnership with REAL MOMENTUM. Life Action Ministries, OneCry, Ministry Ventures, National Coalition of Ministries to Men, Iron Sharpens Iron, Man in the Mirror, Iglesia Bautista Vida Nueva Santiago, Dominican Republic and others.
18 Reaching the next generation of men is a challenge to say the least. Pray for the next generation of men and fathers. Pray for a young man you personally know to become a faithful, godly man who will love and lead like Christ.
19 The best way to renew our mind and think like God is to read God’s Word regularly. The Bible asserts that the words it contains are God’s words and they are “living and active.” Pray that God will use His word to awaken men!
20 The Lord has surrounded Keith, Nichole and their children with a great team of Board Members who are engaged in the mission. Pray that God would continue to give wisdom and focus to each member and that we will walk by faith and not by sight for a movement of men
21Ask 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 they live, work, or play?
22 Tomorrow morning, several men will be participating in our morning prayer conference call at 7:30AM. There is no doubt we need revival, especially among men. We are fervently praying for God to move in the lives of men. Join us!
23 Praise the Lord for leading the men in your life into a deeper and more rewarding relationship with Him as they spend time alone with Him in prayer and devotion.
24 Pray that your church would become a place where every man is discipled and that no man is left behind. Those boys and girls in the nursery and youth group need your church to build men!
25 Immanuel – God is with us. Let us be thankful for the celebration of Christ’s birth, the true gift of Christmas. May the hope, the peace, the joy and the love represented by the birth in Bethlehem fill our lives and become all that we say and do. For there is born to us this day, a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.
26 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.
27 Pray for men to develop and strengthen the spiritual disciplines of prayer, Bible reading, scripture memorization, and continual renewing of the mind.
28 Please pray for the development of the REAL MOMENTUM app. Pray for the Design Team to think through and organize men’s material concerning several subjects and focuses. Pray for implementation and release in January 2015 at the Johnny Hunt Men’s Conference in Woodstock, GA.
29 Pray that your church will bring ministry to men to the forefront of their disciple-making process. Ask God to stir the pastors and staff across America for men to unite hearts to develop an effective discipleship ministry to men.
30 The average man sitting in your church knows, deep down, that he could be more than he has become. What are you and I doing to help him become that man? We need your prayers and with God’s help we can continue to find ways to engage, encourage, and equip men with families and churches in mind.
31 May the Lord Jesus move in the heart of men in 2015 like never before… please join us in praying to that end.
