Dear PRMI Board of Directors, Intercessors, and Friends of the Ministry:
These last five months have been marked by nearly continuous events in many locations worldwide. We have watched in amazement and thanksgiving as we have seen the Holy Spirit moving to ignite, to equip and to empower hundreds as effective witnesses to Jesus Christ. We give thanks to God for all this blessing and obvious fruit for taking the risk of being willing to follow Jesus and go as He sends us, all for God’s glory.
In light of all this blessing, it is somewhat of a disconcerting shock and a bit of a mystery as to why we find ourselves once again on our faces asking God for financial provision so we can keep doing what He has called us to do.
But that is exactly where we are right now. Over the past 5 months we have used His generous resources to cover the ministry expenses of trips and events, as well as preparation of materials and the other costs that go into sustaining the organizational framework that makes all this ministry possible. Now, we find that we are struggling to meet basic operational expenses such as payroll for the Ministry Team, the rising cost of health care and other expenses.
This situation drives us to our knees in prayer. Also, it drives us to a lot of soul-searching as to whether we are on track with the Holy Spirit, whether we have missed any guidance, whether there is sin in the camp, or anything else that we have overlooked.
We are looking at where we can cut expenses without cutting ministry. The Board of Directors has just made the decision that instead of having an August board meeting in Black Mountain we will do a three day meeting on-line. They are sacrificing the face-to-face meeting in order to save money for the ministry.
Please join us in urgent prayer to God the Father for the financial provision needed for the ministry right now. Things are going wonderfully and dozens of PRMI volunteer leaders, teachers and prayer ministers are involved worldwide. He is blessing thousands of people through all of this.
Historically, we have experienced the Lord not just automatically sending financial or people provision, but responding to prayers. It is like Jesus telling his disciples to pray for the Lord of the harvest to send laborers into the field because the fields are white unto harvest. Already, the Lord knows what is needed. Our role in cooperating with Him is to join in the work by praying and then stepping out in obedience to follow the guidance He gives.
In light of this principle, we invite all of you to join us in praying for the Lord of the harvest to provide the laborers and all that is needed to support those laborers who have been called into the fields.
Please join us in praying the following:
1. That we will be good stewards of what God provides.
2. Reveal to us anything we have missed that is our part in casting the vision and letting people know what the Lord is doing.
3. Pray that those whom God has called to be the means to enable this worldwide movement that is exalting Jesus Christ and igniting the Church of Jesus Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit will be moved to provide the financial gifts necessary.
4. Pray that the Lord will remove any schemes of Satan that may be blocking or diverting provision for the Kingdom of God.
5. Pray for us to have the gift of faith to trust Jesus Christ for His provision so that we may receive all that He has for us for doing His work for the Glory of God.
Thank you so much for joining in the struggle of praying for the provision required and that we believe God is intent on sending in order to advance the Kingdom of Jesus Christ to the ends of the earth.
If you hear the Lord speaking to you about this or receive any guidance then please pass it on to us so we can discern it together.
Executive Director, PRMI
