Every Thursday we send out a prayer email with one prayer request that we ask people to lift up. These are usually time sensitive and is a more specific way you can be praying. If you would like to be part of this important team, then please sign up below.

January 2019

Kickoff Event of 2019

Freedom to Lead’s kickoff event of the new year will take place next Monday-Thursday (January 7-10). Eighteen people will be gathered together for FTL Facilitator Training in Cary North Carolina, coming from Africa, Europe, and throughout the United States. Please pray for each person coming to this event and for the logistics that still need to happen between now and Monday. Please pray that the four day training will be a valuable time together as we equip people to expand The Garden Project into different areas.

January International Travel

We are headed East again! This month the FTL team will be in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia (Stewardship and Sustainability) and Nairobi, Kenya (Peacemaking).

Thank you for Giving!

Thank you for giving to the FTL End-of-Year Giving Campaign for 2018. The theme of this year’s campaign was “Will You Give Us a Seat At the Table?” Please pray that as we enter a new year hearts will continue to be stirred and that people will be led to give generously of their resources to this important ministry. Please pray that our message will be communicated clearly with a true desire for raising up Christ-centered leaders throughout the globe who are otherwise unengaged and under-resourced.

Vision Events

We are continuing our series of Freedom to Lead Vision Events to help generate an awareness of what’s God is doing with Freedom to Lead around the world. Please continue to pray as people come to these events that they will be open to how God is leading them as they consider playing a role in this global ministry. The next event will be Monday, December 10 in Cary, North Carolina.

Ongoing Prayer Requests

Orality Institute of Leadership

Please pray for our colleagues in South Asia (India and Nepal) as they launch an “Orality Institute of Leadership” (OIL) this year. This accredited degree program will be the first of its kind to offer the entire curriculum using storycentric methods. The Garden Project – FTL’s leadership development program – will serve as the core content. One key leader of this initiative described the goal for their prospective program participants when he wrote, “The participants will be equipped with both knowledge and experience to lead effectively. They will work in mentoring relationships alongside church planters, pastors, missionaries, and leaders of storycentric communities. They will gain unique understanding into sharing their faith, making disciples, planting churches, and developing other leaders.”


Other Initiatives for 2019

Please pray for the FTL team as we discuss and plan for the growing number of requests for FTL’s ministry. We need discernment and faith to expand the ministry’s infrastructure so that FTL can provide The Garden Project to thousands of under-resourced storycentric communicators.


Funding and Support Raising

FTL Staff are required to raise their own personal financial support, which includes salary and ministry expenses. Please pray for each member of our team as we continue to make relationships with potential people who want to financially partner with us in this ministry. We also are working hard to raise the funds needed to carry out our ministry operations as well as for our projects throughout Asia and Africa. Please pray for favor with individuals, major donors, and foundations.
