September 2020 Month of Prayer

Will you join us for a season of concerted prayer for Freedom to Lead International?

For the past eleven years God has been at work in wondrous ways. What began as merely putting one step of faith in front of another step of faith has become a ministry that surpasses our imagination. Thinking about the journey ahead, we want to be good stewards of this ministry for as long as God graces us with it. Right now is a significant time as we are asking God for wisdom and faith for the future.

Each day in September will highlight a specific prayer request for the ministry of Freedom to Lead International®. These prayer requests will be posted on FTL’s Facebook Page and on the FTL Prayer Page.

You can also download an electronic copy of the calendar by clicking here.

Review by Missio Nexus


Five billion people are part of communities that learn best and are most likely to be influenced through story, images, and music. And yet they are vastly under-resourced. Your gift directly impacts these leaders and creates a hopeful future in their story-centric communities.
