New Beginnings for 2019

January, for most of us, is a time of new beginnings.

Maybe for you it’s a time of reflection and reorientation. It can be a time to take stock of our journey and make some course corrections. It’s a good time to drop extra baggage, embrace new hopes, and set a new direction.

In consecrating myself anew to God’s guidance and provision, every year I go back to a prayer of the great revivalist, John Wesley, who was used by God to change the course of human history. Even this great man of God began each year by giving everything back to God.

I pray that you are blessed, renewed and released into the purpose of God as you pray this prayer.

John Wesley’s Prayer of Consecration

circa 1780

Let me be Your servant, under Your command. I will no longer be my own. I will give up myself to Your will in all things.

Lord, make me what You will. I put myself fully into Your hands; put me to doing, put me to suffering, let me be employed for You or laid aside for You, let me be full, let me be empty, let me have all things, let me have nothing.

I freely and with a willing heart give it all to Your pleasure and disposal. I do here covenant with You, O Christ, to make my lot with You as it may fall. Through Your grace I promise that neither life nor death will part me from You.

I make this covenant with You, O God, without guile or reservation. If any falsehood should be in it, guide me and help me to set it right. Mighty God, let this covenant I have made on earth be ratified in heaven, in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Amen

I'm on the Prayer Team with You

When Nancy and I (Jim) travel to the nations, we always ask for your prayer support. I vividly remember times facing critical situations. There were times when we saw miracles of provision, or direction, or protection from the schemes of the enemy. In those times, we stopped to thank the Father for the miracle, but we also thanked Him for praying partners, knowing that the miracles were answers to your prayers.

I’m With You

This time I’m with you. I will be at home, working at my job, going through the routines of life, and praying for Nancy and our Firefall partners half a world away. I know how important it is to be on the prayer team!

Praying Daily

It is a great blessing to know that many of you follow the ministry itinerary day-by-day, praying specifically, praying fervently, and praying in faith that Jesus will be glorified. I join with you responding to the plea of Jesus, “Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.” Matthew 9:38

On the Winning Team

Together, we can transform nations through the power of prayer as we partner with Nancy, the group from Spain, and our Firefall team in Myanmar. You are just as much a part of this ministry team as they are. You are the unseen warriors in the battle to rescue souls from eternal darkness.

Thank you for going on this trip in prayer. We share together in Jesus’ finished work. He defeated death, rose in victory and reigns forever!
