There is a very important way you can be involved in the work of the Gospel through BGEA in 2011, and that is through prayer. Below, we have shared specific prayer requests from the ministries within BGEA for this new year.
We thank you in advance for partnering with us through intercession.
Crusades and Festivals:
- Pray for the upcoming Festival of Hope in Haiti January 8-9. Although there are many obstacles facing us in Haiti, we continue to hear pleas from the pastors for us to come and share our message of hope in the Lord.
- Pray for our first ever Hispanic Festival in Los Angeles June 24-26. Our team is working to make the event one that will especially bring focus to this group of individuals.
- Pray for the Liberia Festival of Hope March 25-27. Pray with us that God will use the time leading up to this Festival to bring churches together so that they may have an impact for Christ like never before.
My Hope World Evangelism Through Television:
- Pray that thousands of Matthew Hosts across the countries will reach out to friends, family and neighbors.
- Pray that those who attend the broadcasts of the programs will respond by placing their faith in Jesus Christ for salvation.
- Pray for the follow up by the churches to disciple all new believers to become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ.
- Pray that the coordinators will be able to gather a full report of all people who respond to the invitation to follow Christ from all across the country, and that national leaders and pastors will be encouraged to plan for more evangelistic outreaches.
Rapid Response Team (RRT):
- Pray for the chaplain coordinators as they continue to provide on-the-ground ministry in Haiti alongside of Samaritan’s Purse and to those places where disaster will strike in 2011.
- Pray for the churches and participants that will be attending upcoming RRT trainings. Also, pray that God will be honored in all ways through the new doors that He is opening in the disaster community at state and federal levels.
- Pray for the logistics and office team that allows RRT to function so well. Also pray for the leadership.
- Pray for new chaplains in the right locations around the country. Pray that they will meet the training needs quickly, so they are ready to meet regional needs as they occur.
- Pray for those in the midst of crisis in our nation and ask God to send His Church in response.

Dare to be a Daniel:
- Pray that we’ll proceed where the Lord would have us to go, especially with international doors opening for us.
- Pray for a great movement to develop among Christian camps across the country as we challenge them to equip their campers to share the Gospel with their friends after they’ve left the camp. We want camps and churches that do their own camps to use Dare to be a Daniel as their training material this coming season.
- Pray for the development of effective tools and videos to help Daniels share the Gospel with their friends.
- Pray for the team and its director as they travel to equip and challenge youth pastors and children’s workers to make disciples for the sake of the Kingdom of God–raising up the next generation of evangelists.
