Thank you for joining us this month as we join together with thousands of YWAMers from around the world as we pray for local growth.
On the second Thursday of every month YWAM locations, staff, students, and supporters join together in prayer for the mission and for what God is doing in the nations. This month we pray about local growth …
YWAM began with a vision of growth. A young man, Loren Cunningham, saw a mental picture of wave after wave of young people covering the continents. A few years ago, YWAM received two more messages about growth, prophetic pictures of YWAM growing ten-fold, from 20,000 to 200,000 missionaries. YWAM’s leaders prayed about these words and sensed they were from God, and in keeping with a consistent theme throughout the Bible. Said Lynn Green, one of YWAM’s leaders, “growth is just intrinsic to the kingdom of God.”
For the next three months of 2017, we invite you to pray about growth. In February we invite you to ask God, do these messages about ten-fold growth apply to me and my community? If so, how?
To better understand what this prayer could look like, watch this video from Lynn Green, prepared specifically for The Invitation in February (for a transcript, see the bottom of this file):
Then, after you pray, if you sense God giving you a vision about growth please share it with us. You can do so by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
In March, we will pray for these faith goals as well as for other global goals in YWAM that seek supernatural increase.
Then in April The Invitation will again focus on growth, specifically on persecution that often accompanies growth and expansion.
As we begin this season of prayer for increase, consider this promise from the apostle Paul:
“He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will supply and multiply your seed for sowing and increase the harvest of your righteousness” (1 Corinthians 9:10).
