Weekly Prayer Emails

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.

December 2017


Please pray as the team travels to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia for two weeks (December 2-17). For the first week we will be delivering a module on Leading Teams to a group of participants. The second week we will be discussing Spiritual Leadership with a different cohort of leaders from various parts of Ethiopia.

New Staff

Please pray for Chip DeWitt, Freedom to Lead’s newest staff member. Chip will be serving as FTL’s Director of Development and will be looking primarily into expanding our network and support base. Please pray for him as he steps into this challenging role.


Busy Months

November and December are very busy months for Freedom to Lead. Please pray as we move along with international travel, end-of-year campaigns, and financial accountings .

End of Year Campaign (“Go Beyond”)

Please pray over FTL’s End of Year Campaign. Through a series of six short posts (one each week between Thanksgiving and the end of 2017) we will be inviting people to “go beyond” and be part of the work that God is doing around the world through Freedom to Lead. Pray that the Holy Spirit will move people to partner with us prayerfully and financially in the coming year.

Ongoing Prayer Requests

Oral University of Leadership

Please pray for our colleagues in South Asia (India and Nepal) as they launch an “Oral University of South Asia” (OUSA) in July 2017. 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 2017

Please pray for our Board of Directors as they meet 22 April to discuss and plan for the growing number of requests for FTL’s ministry. They 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.


FTL Women’s Initiative

Please pray for important conversations that are happening this month regarding the FTL Women’s Initiative. Pray that God will continue to give us a vision and clear direction for next steps that need to be taken to meet this great need to develop women as Christ-centered influencers in their communities.
