Assemblies of God missionaries, Skyping in from around the world, will share their testimonies and urgent prayer needs during a focused time of seeking the Lord through the global online World Prayer Meeting coming in May. Recorded live by Cornerstone Church in Bowie, Maryland, with host pastor Mark Lehman, this annual hour-long event begins at 7 p.m. Wednesday, May 28 - Ascension Day.

"As we join together in prayer, we anticipate answers to prayer and breakthroughs among unreached peoples who have yet to hear the hope of the gospel," says AGWM Communications Director Randy Hurst. "In 2013, more than 30 percent of AGWM personnel were involved in ministry to unreached people groups. That number continues to grow."

The World Prayer Meeting's first webcast begins at 7 p.m. Eastern Standard Time and available online immediately thereafter.

"Prayer for divine intervention and empowerment in our mission is not an option: It is an absolute necessity," says Greg Mundis, AGWM executive director. "We will only accomplish God's purposes and the specific individual tasks He has for us as a mission if we can marshal a spiritual army of intercessors to pray that God will open doors among the unreached and protect and sustain our missionaries." 

"Individuals are encouraged to participate in this inspiring event," Hurst says, "but if your church has the compatible technical capabilities, please consider projecting the broadcast in the sanctuary and use the prayer meeting in your regular Wednesday evening service."

Jeff Hartensveld, AGWM mobilization director who will be leading the prayer meeting says, "Imagine, if we pray with an urgency to match the times and days we are living in, what the Lord will do!"

To help direct prayers during and following the event, AGWM has created six prayer cards, one from each of the six AGWM geographic regions.

"Each card includes a brief message from the regional director concerning the prayer focus," Hurst explains. "However, if you plan to use these cards in conjunction with the World Prayer Meeting, they must be ordered by May 16." To acquire cards, call (800)-988-6568.

The site of the World Prayer Meeting broadcast is currently being developed, but once the site is ready, the link will be posted on the AGWM home page and in an upcoming AG News release.

Virtually . . . possible!

Fri, 16 Mar 2012 - 12:27 PM CST

The Internet can be one of the single greatest sources of degradation. However, as the Pentecostal Evangel office recently learned, it can also be an effective virtual missionary.

Every week, the Evangel offers online readers the opportunity to win a book and a free six-month subscription to the magazine. Recently, the winner of the contest raised eyebrows - it was a pastor from a sensitive country - a country where missionaries cannot openly go.

"In the Assemblies of God, missionaries often work with local leaders and focus on raising up indigenous churches," says Ken Horn, Pentecostal Evangel editor. "In sensitive countries, sometimes a Christian leader's greatest resource for outside support and inspiration is through the Internet."

Horn says that it's inspiring to realize that a pastor in very difficult ministry circumstances is accessing the Pentecostal Evangel online.  After consulting with AG World Missions, the book, Q&A: Conversations with 50 Inspiring People, is being sent to the pastor along with the subscription to the magazine.

"Churches and individuals across the United States and around the world - even in the most sensitive countries - have come to realize what a spiritually enriching resource the 'Pentecostal Evangel' is," Horn says. "My prayer is that every church would bless and inspire their congregation with a subscription."
