United-First Monday Prayer/March

It’s amazing to think people are reading these words on just about every continent right now (I'm not sure we have any readers in Antarctica, yet!), miles apart, but united by a common belief that God can reach the 132 million university students worldwide with rescue and repair.

Many of us have been in the same building in recent months and weeks, while others of us have never officially met. But we all are united by a desire to see the world change, and a hope that the sum of our lives will amplify the name of Jesus on our campuses and around the globe.
So, wherever you are today, you are not alone. We are one wave...with one voice for His great fame.

The point of First Monday is to join our voices as we humble ourselves before a limitless God, asking Him to do what we alone could never do. Don’t just read the words, be still and bow before Him. Believe and pray, for our God is mighty to save.

16 (2+6+8) Prayer Points For March

1. We are grateful for amazing events in Dallas and DC. We asked for a lot and saw the faithfulness and goodness of God. So let’s begin by thanking Him for all He has done.

2. 9000 students from Dallas and DC are back on over 550 campuses today. Ask God to fan the flames of hope, healing, life and vision that were sparked in those days.

3. We met a new friend at Passion DC. Sam, a college student from China, blew us away with her story and smile. Let’s pray today that she will be encouraged and used by God to bring light and truth to her campus and nation. Sam, if you're reading this you have 3000 new friends in America!

4. Passion Atlanta is 40 days away. It’s not too early to ask God to prepare the way in what will be our last US event in 2008.

5. We are inviting college leaders and pastors together on March 13 to shared ,\ the vision of Passion Atlanta. Though we have hosted sold out events here, we don’t want one student to miss this gathering because they don’t know about it. Pray the story will spread and more students will come. Pray they will overcome any hurdles that stand in their way.

6. Please continue to pray for the Passion Team as these days are packed with long hours, multiple challenges and the strains that come when you strive for great things.

7. The Passion World Tour is 10 weeks away! Pray for our first stop in Kyiv, Ukraine. Many factors have shifted for this event beyond our control, but we still believe this is going to be a catalytic event for the university students of Ukraine. Pray the vision will flourish among our partners there and the logistical details will come together.

8. We are thanking God for His provision as the World Tour budget pushes upwards (close to 7 million). In Dallas and DC combined, over $100,000 was given, and gifts large and small continue to arrive daily. God is amazing, and has everything we need. Millions more are needed reach our goals.

9. Our Kuala Lumpur team has just returned from Malaysia with great reports. Pray that much fruit will come from their meetings and that the next steps for this event will fall into place quickly.

10. Pray God will raise up strategic people we have yet to meet in each World Tour city...people of vision with favor and influence to open doors we could not open in our own efforts.

11. This week (March 2-7) we have a team in London preparing for our stop at The Hammersmith Apollo. Pray that a huge wave of momentum will follow their visit. Tickets for Passion London are now on sale!

12. Louie is posting this Blog from Seoul, Korea, where he and some of our team are meeting with pastors and ministry leaders there. It is important for the senior pastors of Seoul to catch the heartbeat of Passion Seoul (something that has already happened among many college leaders there) and give their support and blessing to this event. Pray a Kingdom mindset will prevail.

13. Our Mexico City team hosted Mexican guests in Dallas and are now in the final stages of securing a venue for this event. Pray for favor with government authorities and leaders in Mexico City.

14. We need the right connections for a venue in Hong Kong, the World Tour stop Sam hopes to attend.

15. Ask God to cover our volunteer team leads, national partners, bands, and support staff in these weeks leading up to May.

16. Thank God for what He’s doing around the globe, and thank Him in advance for what we have not seen. He’s going to blow us away on the Passion World Tour.

Unless the LORD builds the house, they labor in vain who build it; unless the LORD guards the city, the watchman keeps awake in vain. It is vain for you to rise up early, to retire late, to eat the bread of painful labors; For He gives to His beloved even in his sleep. Psalm 127:1-2 (NAS)

  • Revival Town

    Well I've got a message to bring
    I can't preach but I can sing
    And me and my brothers here
    Gonna play redemption hymns
    We're not on our own you know
    It's all around the world
    Cos this is the freedom generation
    Living for revival in this time

    Hallelujah, people everywhere are singing
    Hallelujah, you've turned my mourning into dancing

    Revival town
    That's what they're calling this place now
    Revival town
    It'll put a smile on your face now
    Revival town

    Well I've got a story to tell
    About the King above all kings
    You spoke for peace, hope, love and justice
    Things that we all need today
    You let a broken generation
    Become a dancing generation
    This is revival generation
    You may not hear it on the radio
    But you can feel it on the air

    Hallelujah, people everywhere are singing
    Hallelujah, you've turned my mourning into dancing

    Revival town
    That's what they're calling this place now
    Revival town
    It'll put a smile on your face now
    Revival town
    That's what they're calling this place now
    Revival town

    I heard this song today from Delirious, and I was encouraged...
