Getting Alone with God
Yet the news about Jesus spread all the more, so that crowds of people came to hear Him, and to be healed of their sickness. But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed. Luke 5:15 (NIV)
Andrew Murray said, “No man can expect to make progress in holiness who is not often long alone with God.” Pray intentionally that Keith would fight to find some significant amounts of time alone with God. Pray that men in your life would fight to find time alone with God this month.

1 Today Keith will lead a team of faithful Godly men (Eric Bolding, Tony Williams, Steve Hyland, Rick Bellerjeau) in discipling young single men. Over the next eight weeks, pray that God would touch each life for His glory and raise up a generation of warriors for the Kingdom.
2 Today is the day for the REAL MOMENTUM GOLF CHALLENGE. Many have been raising friends and funds for this event and special time to celebrate the Lord and all who He has led to support a movement of men through REAL MOMENTUM. Pray for the Lord to bless the efforts of so many who have given their talent, time and financial support to make this event successful.
3 Keith, Nichole and the family recently welcomed Mae Ellyn Boggs born on August 27, 2014. The birth announcement of Mae Ellyn comes with great joy and needed prayers for her future she was recently diagnosed with Down Syndrome. Read the announcement here.
4 Pray for the Lord to do a new work in the heart of every man, so that they will do whatever it takes to get alone with Him for a while each day.
5 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.
6 Tomorrow morning, 77 TIME meets early for Dad’s of young men and women who attend Mount Paran Christian School. Keith will continue taking these men through the message of REAL MOMENTUM for the next several months. 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.
7 Tomorrow night, Keith and Nichole will be discipling the young singles from First Baptist Church Woodstock, GA.
8 Help, LORD! is the title of Keith’s new book intentionally written to engage men, encourage families, and equip churches for a movement of men. The book is a tool to build awareness for people everywhere that men really do need help, no matter what they tell you. Pray that the message will be loud and clear for a movement of men as it will be released soon!
9 Tonight the Board of Directors will gather together for devotion and prayer in seeking God for a movement of men. God is at work and momentum is building.
10 Tonight begins a men’s retreat for Burnt Hickory Baptist in Lake Guntersville, AL. Pray for God to use each message Keith shares today to penetrate the heart of each man.
11 The men’s retreat for Burnt Hickory continues with a full day of activities. Ask God to infuse the men with the burden for a movement of men that transforms families and churches to the ends of the earth.
12 Through direction from the Lord and wise counsel of others, a decision was made with heavy hearts to postpone the ministry opportunity at the Awaken Uganda Conference. Please pray for the Awaken to Follow Team in Uganda as they pursue their God given desire to see national repentance among those in Uganda. Pray also for the Lord to grant another opportunity for REAL MOMENTUM to minister to the Ugandan people in 2015.
13 Pray for the Lord to teach men how to tune out the noises and distractions around them, so that they can tune in to His voice and aim their prayers with precision.
14 Several men will be participating in our morning 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!
15 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.
16 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.
17 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.
18 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 they live, work, or play?
19 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.
20 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.
21The 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.
22 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.
23 It was said of Robert Murray M’Cheyne, “There goes a man who loves your soul.” Ask God right now to give Keith and other men you know burning desire to love the souls of others in their home and around the world.
24 Pray for the men, and women who will attend the REAL MOMENTUM Marriage Emphasis Weekend at The Gathering at Brock in Brock, TX. Coed sessions start tonight!
25 The Gathering at Brock men will be challenged by the message of REAL MOMENTUM. Pray that these men will ignite a movement of men in their homes, church, and community.
26 Please pray today for opportunities for Nichole to speak in to the lives of the ladies attending the RM Marriage conference at The Gathering at the Brock. Pray for Nichole to have favor in encouraging women to pray for a movement of men.
27 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.
28 Several men will be participating in our morning 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!
29 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.
30 There are many women with a personal relationship with Jesus who take their children to church and actively teach them to love Jesus, while their husbands are non-believers. Please pray for these families for God to use the testimony of the wife and children to win these husbands and fathers to faith in Christ.
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.
