Act Like Men
Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong. Let all that you do be done in love. 1 Corinthians 16:13-14 (ESV)
Please take time each day this month to encourage men, through prayer for them… to be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, and be strong where ever they are and whoever they are with. And, may all they they do be done in love.

1 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.
2 77 TIME begins early this morning for Dad’s of young men and women who attend Mount Paran Christian School. Keith will begin taking the 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.
3 The Lord has surrounded Keith, Nichole and their children with a great team of Board Members. 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.
4 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.
5 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.
6 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.
7 In October, Keith will have the privilege of traveling to Uganda to speak to several hundred men for the Awake Uganda – a 3-Day Conference Raising Momentum Toward National Repentance. Brandon Rosko will be joining Keith to lead men’s breakout sessions so begin lifting up these men as they continue to raise funds and prepare messages.
8 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.
9 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!
10 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.
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 Jesus showed us how to grow a healthy church: focus on men first. REAL MOMENTUM exists to equip churches to bring ministry to their forefront of their discipleship ministry. Pray that more and more churches will be intentional in ministry to men.
13 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.
14 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!
15 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.
16 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.
17 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!
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 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 a burning desire to love the souls of others in their home and around the world.
20 Keith will be leading a Life Action Pre-Summit for FBC Lyons, GA today through Monday. This is a strategic weekend in preparing the staff, leadership, and church for seeking God through prayer and preaching the Word. May God set the stage for a fresh move of His Spirit in the church and community.
21 Whoever wants the next generation will get them. Pray for favor and blessing in the families and churches you know that are in your community.
22 It’s just a few short weeks before Keith and Brandon Rosko board a plan to Uganda. God is at work there and doors are opening for future ministry opportunities in the region. Pray for God to raise up Strategic Mission Partnerships that would focus on biblical manhood and true womanhood.

25 The most strategic investment we can make today is to invest in men. Because when you invest in men, you also invest in wives and children, churches and communities… to the ends of the earth and for the glory of God. Pray that God would send new monthly financial partners to come alongside REAL MOMENTUM and help win the battle for men’s souls.
26 Men from Sugar Grove Church (Goshen, IN) will be gathering together at Life Action Camp (Buchanan, MI) for a retreat. Tonight, Keith will have the privilege of speaking to the leadership team. Ask God to move this church to intentionally disciple men in their church.
27 The men’s retreat for Sugar Grove continues with a full day of activities. Pray for God to use each message Keith shares today to penetrate the heart of each men. Ask God to infuse them with the burden for a movement of men that transforms families and churches to the ends of the earth.
28 Yesterday, made one month for little Mae Ellyn Boggs being in our midst. Would you lift her up to our Great God for His continual favor and blessing upon her life? The Boggs family knows that she has been intimately and intentionally designed for God. He is good at what He does!
