First Monday Prayer Guide - November

As we come together today for the November First Monday Day of Prayer I want you to imagine people like you all around the world reading these very words right now. We are not detached individuals, but we are one. And as we talk to God together He threads our faith into one bold confession.

Jesus said, "Whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. Again, I tell you that if two of you agree on earth about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven. For where two or three come together in my name, there I am with them." Matthew 18:18-20.

Most of us have heard these words many times, yet they are powerfully true right now as more than two or three of you are reading this in dorms, apartments, offices and wifi locations across the nation and around the globe. So humbly we come before our Maker, asking Him to do what only He can do.

16 (2+6+8) Prayer Points for November

1. Pray that the name of Passion will decrease and the fame of Jesus will spread more and more. We are not about any name but His. "And the LORD will be king over all the earth; in that day the LORD will be the only one, and His name the only name." Zech. 14:9.

2. Pray for our Passion Staff Team. Louie has had a brief hospital stay and is on the road with the How Great Is Our God Tour through November 19. Our team is facing multiple challenges on every front and we need your prayers for covering, protection, unity, endurance and favor.

3. Thank God for what he did in Boston and Chicago. Wow!

4. Pray the work God did in student's lives in Boston and Chicago will endure and continue. Seeds were powerfully planted and the battle for their full effect is fierce.

5. Continue to pray for Boston, and specifically for the pastors and campus leaders whose vision was sparked as a result of Passion Boston.

6. Many cards with deep needs were placed at the crosses in Boston and Chicago. They contained stories of struggle, great need and huge thanks. Many contained words like desperation, abortion, suicide, loneliness, death, bondage, freedom, healing. Please pray for every person who cried out to God during those days.

7. Our next stop is LA. Pray that God will prepare the way and pray for the 1 million college students who are in the greater LA area.

8. Pray the news of Passion LA will spread far and fast, uniting students all along the West Coast for His fame. We need a lot of help making sure everyone knows and has a chance to be a part of this event.

9. Pray for your campus and city. "Greater things have yet to come and greater things are still to be done in this city!"

10. Pray specifically for a campus ministry or church other than the one you are plugged into.

11. Pray for our City Teams that are circling the globe working on the Passion World Tour.

12. Specifically for our City Team for Seoul, Korea (Masi, Larry and Lisa). As you read this they are returning from an amazing vision casting/networking trip to Seoul.

13. Pray for Seoul and the potential for what God can do through university students there.

14. Pray for contract discussions in 17 cities around the globe. Contracts and venues are the key piece to dates being settled and released. We have multiple contracts in multiple languages to finalize.

15. Pray specifically for our date in Kampala, Uganda next May. We will be right on a university campus and leaders there expect tens of thousands of students potentially could be involved. Pray for the nation, the leaders and pastors there, and ask God to set everything in place for our small part of His story in Uganda.

16. Pray for our team as we work on a tight deadline finishing the Passion CD that will be released in January. More than songs and another record, we want this album to be filled with songs of power and hope for the world.

Shout with joy to God, all the earth! Sing the glory of his name; make his praise glorious! Say to God, “How awesome are your deeds! So great is your power that your enemies cringe before you. All the earth bows down to you; they sing praise to you, they sing praise to your name.” Psalm 66:1-4.

  • Far from college, it is still exciting to partner with you all in prayer! I woke up this morning (here in Texas) looking forward to joining with others around the world in prayer for God's great name to be known even more so on college campuses around the world. And for the impact of the Gospel this next year on those campuses! Praying for you all as you work towards that end in preparation for 2008! - KL

  • "...All the Earth bows down to You, they sing praise to You."

    Praise God for all he is doing around the world. I love Kneel because It reminds me how big the kingdom of God really is.

  • My first 1st (haha) Friday Prayer gathering. I am so blessed to be apart of the world wide prayer in the movement but hope for our prayers to bless those we lift up infinitely more. Peculiar enough, our church just finished a 24 hr prayer vigil today!

    Joshua 1 was brought back to me again in my time with Christ today. "Only be strong and very courageous; be careful to do according to all the law which Moses my servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, so that you may have success wherever you are."

    It reminded me of Isa. 26:8

  • Praying this for you from 2 Chronicles:

    When your people go to war against their enemies at the time and place you send them and they pray to God toward the city you chose and The Temple I've built to honor your Name, Listen from heaven to what they pray and ask for and do what is right for them.

    And don't, God, back out on your anointed ones, keep in mind the love promised to David your servant. 2 Chronicles 6: 34-35,42 (the message) Thank you Lord!

    Boston is really on our hearts, we are probably sending a group there after graduation in May to get something started (Me being one of the group).

    We are always praying for you Louie and the rest of the Passion team. See you in Dallas in February.

  • Louie,

    I ran into Shelly last night at the meet & greet with Crowder. She was standing next to David because he wasn't aloud to talk. I think was the strong arm.

    You guys are awesome, I'll pray for you and Shelly.
