OCT, NOV, DEC. 2018 ION Prayer Focus – Bible in 90 Days Prayer Initiative

Bible in 90 Days – A different kind of prayer initiative!

Praying & Washing in the Word Daily for the last three months of the year. ASKING for Scripture and Scripture Access to be available for the Every & All.

Praying in one accord,

“Lord, Close the gap that we might see Scripture (FULL BIBLES) and Scripture Access for everyone across the globe. Praying Luke 10:2 & Matthew 9:37-38, Send the laborers into His harvest fields.”  

InvitationforThursCallOCT2017

As we move into the last 90 days of 2018, we begin by asking you a couple of questions.screenshot_2016-09-29-13-50-59-1

Do we understand the need to influence the body of Christ to not only “see” Oral Communicators, but see them as a huge critical piece of great importance in God’s plan?

Could the real issue be our unwillingness to acknowledge “we” are not the answer to completing the Great Commission, His answer is in the Harvest!

Do we really believe the Word of God is the very center of who we are as the sons of God, understanding this is not a gender, but an identity issue? And the Word, the full and complete Bible is critical to everything we are and necessary for all we do?

In the biblical model of the relationship shown in the Bible, with God, we are always the sons of God. His desire is for us to have an intimate relationship with Him that produces fruit. The biblical worldview is not just having one’s personal faith, it is having an all-consuming way of life, applicable to all areas of our life, that produces life. The outcome of the words of Jesus from what is called the Great Commandment in Matthew 22:36-40, moving from a Mark 16 mentality of “taking care of the people of God” to becoming one with His Great Commission spoken of in Matthew 28:16-20. This pattern honors and gives God glory. Can we join together over these next three months to pray that priority?

If at the core of everything our priority is to bring God glory, then let us begin.

A United Call for Prayer:

“Devote yourselves to prayer being watchful and thankful… that we may proclaim the mystery of Christ.” Colossians 4:2-4

We invite you to join in this 90 Days Prayer Initiative. You can join in with us at any time during the 90 days.

START NOW!

Bible in 90 Days Prayer Initiative

We believe we must make EVERY EFFORT to bring Scripture (complete full Bible) to the EVERY & ALL in a way that can REALLY BE RECEIVED. We must make every effort to bring the Gospel in a way that can REALLY BE HEARD.

To bring the Gospel in a way that can REALLY be heard and received with the common goal of making God’s Word available to oral communicators in culturally appropriate ways that enable church planting movements everywhere. This will require the Church to move back to the way God began. . . He spoke everything into existence. We acknowledge and recognize GOD IS INDEED AN ORAL COMMUNICATOR!

We want to be active in this prayer initiative to let the Word of God be released into the atmosphere as we listen to our devices whenever possible. As you ride in your car or sit in your favorite spot for your morning or nightly devotional time, we invite you to allow the Word of God to permeate the atmosphere.

Allow Scripture Engagement to happen in a new way! Go Oral – Just Listen – Don’t analyze. Let the Word of God wash over you, body, soul and spirit so to speak, as you listen.

We pray in unity,

Pray for us that the Word of God may run and be glorified, even as also it is with you.” 2 Thessalonians 3:1 and “He sends His command on the earth; His Word runs swiftly.” Psalm 147:15

Listening to God's Word

Over the next 90 Days we LISTEN, we PRAY: 

  • Listen for clarity, allow yourself to be absorbed in the Scripture as you listen
  • Listen for God to connect His Word together as one whole story for you
  • Listen for a sense of gratefulness in having the Word of God available and realizing that so many people groups (1,500+) do not have ONE VERSE of Scripture in their heart language and mother tongue.
  • Praying for Oral Peoples & Oral Bibleless People Groups
  • Praying for the new generation of Orality workers who will enable every Oral Communicator to become a Christ follower who is a disciple making disciples
  • Praying for those working in Orality/UUPGs & Great Commission Partner groups
  • Praying for the Bibleless around the globe
  • Praying for Bible Translation groups who are working tirelessly to complete Scripture projects in every mother tongue
  • Praying for a new generation of Bible Translators who can move the work forward in the accelerated manner needed to get the Word of God to the every and all

God, we ask You, to teach us to ask the right questions so we might know how to pray more effectively:

  • How can we make disciples without the Scripture, the Word of God?
  • How do we pray for these people groups that do not have ONE VERSE of Scripture?
  • How do we understand and have compassion for them in how they might be able to really receive the gift of God if we do not fully take into consideration the need to understand and receive at a heart level so that it can produce the needed transformation?

For over five years ION has taken the last three months of the year in united prayer to we listen to the Bible in Audio format, using our ear gates to listen. We are praying for remembering all the souls who as yet, do not have the Scriptures in their heart language and mother tongue.

We are asking God to allow us to understand what it is like for oral peoples who prefer to use the ear gates to receive information. For those who are blind, for those who are deaf and cannot hear in the way “we think of”, but who desperately are in need of hearing fully from His Story, the Scriptures. . . In a way they can really hear and receive.

It looks different to every people, but the reality is: 1,500+ people groups do not have ONE VERSE of Scripture and for the vast majority of the globe, they still do not have access to the Word of God.

Only 8% of the world have the full Bible. (4.2.20 Foundation)

80% of the world’s population are oral communicators –people who do not read, or prefer to learn by oral-visual means.

 ION 7 Gateways Explained

This organizational model allows everyone to find their place. It also allows for the different gateways and pathways to be accessed by individuals & organizations and agencies. Allowing for many onramps so each one can find their area of passion and function effectively. You are encouraged to work in more than one gateway if that is what God is calling you to, it is His work.

Praying alongside ION Partners

We continue to ask you to learn more about ION & its partners. To collaborate together and see God’s activity and join Him there, wherever possible.

Let’s look at “What does it look like to see God as an oral communicator?”

The Center for Oral Scriptures (COS) released the “Master Storyteller“, its purpose is to help us to reconnect and see how God is the master storyteller. We recognize that Orality is not just storytelling, it is about His Story being shared and used to reach the every and all in various ways. Look at the different gateways and pathways and how Orality is being used. This might be a way for you to share with others how to look at why Orality is key to everything we do.

GOD’S ORAL COMMUNICATION ~ IN THE BIBLE AND HEBREW TRADITION ~ A BOOK, SHORT FILMS & INTERACTIVE LEARNING PLATFORM
Center for Oral Scriptures (COS), is a program of the 4.2.20 Foundation.

final book cover

For those of you who prefer the digital eBook version is it available for free on the ION Orality.net website:  https://orality.net

The book models the ION pattern for prayer of:

God centered
Spirit directed
Kingdom focused

In this pattern, a new sound of intercession is being released. We invite you to PRAY out your prayers. Begin to listen more and ask God how to pray and what to say.

Move from a need-based man-centered prayer mode into a more spirit-filled opportunity to be in God’s presence and in communication with the God of the universe we serve together as His children.

Pray to the One who wants every person to know His Son and the great gift of salvation in Him.

Pray and join the majority world in praying out loud. Returning to a format of being oral reliant. Do not be afraid to return to a place of total dependency on God in the place of prayer.

Let the Father lead, so that your prayers might be released to make the shifts needed in this season of time. Move into the new!

The ION Prayer Teams and Regional Prayer Associates believe a shift has happened of the “more” of Ephesians 3:20. We believe it is here, it is a new Era!

“Jesus said to them, “My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me and to completely finish His work. Do you not say, ‘It is still four months until the harvest comes?’ Look, I say to you, raise your eyes and look at the fields and see, they are white for harvest. Already the reaper is receiving his wages and he is gathering fruit for eternal life; so that he who plants and he who reaps may rejoice together.” John 4:34-36

Get your copy of the new prayer book, begin to go thru the prayers saying them out loud. Ask God to reteach you where needed to pray. Let your voice be heard! We encourage you as you step into the deep water with God to engage in praying God’s Word in a more intentional way.

MARK YOUR CALENDARS

We invite you to link in prayer each Thursday at 2 pm Eastern Time GMT-4

Dial: +1 (641) 552-9404

Code: 818908#            

Please do mark your calendars, as shortly we will be doing away with our email reminder system. We are trusting God to bring the laborers in prayer.

You can join in this work of prayer to PRAY in the new sound of intercession and PRAY for the army of intercessors needed to bring about the shifts needed to bring in the harvest of oral communicators which is 80% of the globe’s population. Of that number 1/2 of them are children and youth. Be the answer!  Thank you for joining to pray each month.

Prayer Report for the ION NAR Gathering

The ION North America Regional 2018 was a wonderful gathering. It was a joy to be with the Orality Network partners and leaders from around the globe. We saw the Nations gather to support the NAR Team. PRAY for this Team to find their full identity. So that they might influence the body of Christ here in North America to reach oral Communicators in a way that would effectively help to encourage them to be Christ followers and disciples that make disciples.

Lucy Knight and the Onsite Prayer Team did a spectacular job of providing prayer support for the ION NAR program Team and participants as well as our global guests.

As a recap, let me share that much was accomplished in the physical realm and in the spiritual realm. Lives were touched, transformed and people moved forward. We hope those of you who made the trip to Orlando, FL USA also made a stop in at the Prayer Room! If not you missed a wonderful opportunity to see the activity of God first hand. We heard, “It is finished! several times.” It was as if the gavel came down and the sound of earth shifting was heard. We are in a new Era we believe.

The ION NAR Program Team made it possible for prayer to be featured from the platform to model different times and types of corporate prayer. We are grateful for the opportunity to lead the people through the gate of worship as we prayed together.

A new sound of intercession is being released. We invite you to PRAY out your prayers. So that they might physically be released into the atmosphere here on earth.

God centered
Spirit directed
Kingdom focused

Begin to make some shifts in the way you pray. Move into the new! The ION Core Prayer Team and Regional Prayer Associates have been believing for a shift of the “more” of Ephesians 3:20 to come. We believe it is here.

You can join in this work as we partner to PRAY in the new sound of intercession and the army of intercessors needed to bring about the reality of 80% of the globe’s population being oral communicators.

Get a copy of the new prayer book, “Praying for Oral and Oral Bibleless People Groups either through Amazon or on the Orality.net website. And begin to go thru the prayers saying them out loud. Let your voice be heard! We encourage you as you step into the deep water with God to engage in praying God’s Word in a more intentional way.

Sept 2018 It is finished

SEPTEMBER 2018 ION Prayer Focus

Sept ION Prayer FocusWelcome Back!

This past month our Teams have been on a Social Media Fast.

PRAISE GOD for all who stepped back from schedules and ongoing normal work and instead made a priority for August in taking some intentional downtime. Think about Joshua 3:5, “Joshua told the people, “Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the Lord will do amazing things among you.” As we step back into those schedules in September 2018 we together agree in unity to believe for the mighty things God is doing in these tomorrow days. We continue to tap our arrows on the ground for the “more” of Ephesians 3:20-21 for all of the body of Christ, especially for the Orality Network and our Great Commission Partner Groups.

PRAY with us, Lord, As we step back into the physical work at hand, remind us again of the reality of John 9:4 “We must carry on the work of him who sent me while the daylight lasts. Night is coming, when no one can work.” Empower your servants to serve well in the spiritual places of life, such as keeping a love for You and Your Word priority and at the same time, valuing the physical work of the Kingdom You allow us to be able to touch! Let us, ” Taste and See that the Lord is good; How blessed is the one who takes refuge in Him.” Psalm 34:8

PRAY with us, Father, Close the gap! We pray in agreement the “least prayed prayer” in Matthew 9:37-38 & Luke 10:2.

We are asking others to focus on God’s heart and goals for making the Word accessible to Oral and Bibleless peoples, the elimination of the Old Testament Gap, and the raising up of a new generation translation and Orality laborers.

•   Pray for the 1,600+ languages that do not have ONE VERSE of Scripture in their heart language

•   Pray for those peoples around the globe who do not have access or only have limited access to Scripture because they do not have the Word of God in its entirety. While in the global North and West we have the ENTIRE BIBLE, ALL 66 BOOKS available in multiple versions. Think about this reality: Of the 650+ FULL BIBLES available to all, 178 versions are in English

•   Pray for the people’s of the globe to be able to someday soon, open a Bible and take God’s Word into their hearts anytime they choose to. Sadly that is not the case around the world for millions of souls.

•   Pray for the Oral People Groups who number 80% (5.7 Billion) of the population of the globe who still wait for the gospel in a way they can really understand and receive. Time is short, let every believer wake up to fully seek first God’s Kingdom and His righteousness, realizing the urgency of the hour. (Rom. 13:11-14; Luke 19:13; Psalm 90:12)

•  Pray that every follower of Jesus is BEING a disciple who fully follows Jesus in loving God, loving others and making disciples that make disciples. (Acts 1:8; Matt. 22:37; Prov. 11:30; Matt. 28:18-20)

•   Pray for believers see the LOSTNESS of souls all around us. May each disciple be open and responsive to the heart condition of those the Holy Spirit is preparing. And let us move intentionally into sharing God’s Story and the gift of salvation in Christ Jesus in a way that can be understood and responded to for transformation to happen at a heart level. (John 4:36; John 6:44; 2 Tim. 4:2)

•   Pray for every people group with little gospel witness to be adopted for prayer and outreach and then be engaged with a Kingdom multiplication strategy, so that there will be no place left without a gospel witness in every tongue, tribe, and nation. Currently, 1/4 to 1/3 of the world has little to no gospel witness (Unreached people groups) and 401 people groups over 500,000 in population have less than .1% Christians among them. These represent 88% of the remaining task. (Matt. 9:37-38; 2 Cor. 10:16; 2 Peter 3:9; Rev. 7:9)

•   Pray for access to the entire Word of God in every language. Presently only 7% of the world’s languages have a full Bible and only 1 in 5 Bible Translation Projects focus on translating the Old Testament. Having a full Bible allows for people to have access to the whole counsel of God. Pray for the 1,600+ Bibleless People Groups who do not have ONE VERSE of Scripture in their heart language in your prayers. Pray for the acceleration of accurate Bible Translations to come quickly. (Matt. 9:37-38; Heb. 4:12; Rom. 10:17-21)

•    Pray for the Body of Christ to recognize our call to see His Kingdom coming and His will be done (not just building our own kingdoms) on earth as it is in heaven. Let us work together in the unity of the Spirit keeping the bond of peace for His glory among the nations, that they might see Him in us. (Matt. 6:10; Eph. 4:3; Matt. 12:22-26; John 17)

An encouraging challenge from Call2All:Call2All 2018

The challenges before us as the Body of Christ are the following:

1. Will we stay stuck in old models that are no longer relevant to the emerging generations? This includes how we see evangelism, discipleship, all areas of communication and education and the use of the newest technology.

2. Will we in Western culture keep compromising the Bible to fit in an ever-increasing humanistic secular culture?

3. Will we pay the price of persecution to stand up for truth in the marketplace?

What we are doing across the globe is growing rapidly. The Lord is opening up opportunities to us in country after country. It is very important right now that we stay true to the gospel and use the most modern methods to effectively reach this next generation!

Every decision we make is more important than ever. Let’s redeem these key hours in human history.

Mission Frontiers SEPT2018

The latest edition of MF delves into the remarkable advances being made by Wycliffe Bible Translators around the world today.  It highlights Wycliffe’s rich and long-standing history and updates current inroads being made in Bible translation. Modern-day technology has enabled translators to not only speed up the translation process but to also improve the quality of the end product by including a wide range of people in the translation process.

PRAY and read the current Mission Frontiers issue here.

PRAY with us through some of the recent Bible Translation Prayer items we have received:

Praise God for the language teams that were able to attend the third Oral Bible Translation Workshop the second half of August. Pray that the same people from the Bungain, Juwar and Urimo language communities attend the workshop, so that they already have some skills developed from earlier training. Pray for the teams to internalize and understand the passages translated so they can produce clear and accurate translations. Pray for wisdom for the translation consultants* as they check the translated passages.

*Consultant check: A consultant thoroughly goes over the translation with the team, checking for accuracy, clarity and naturalness, and looking for omissions, extraneous thoughts or possible misconceptions.

Praise God for the last Oral Bible Storytelling workshop for nine Nuku area languages held in the past two months. Each team was able to learn four more stories their heart language to take back and share in their language communities. Pray that God’s Word has an impact on many people in these communities. Praise God that some of these team members will go on to be trainers of other Bible storytellers.

Praise the Lord for the “JESUS” film showings throughout the city of Lae, Papua New Guinea during July and August. Youth With a Mission Lae staff members have shown the film throughout the city. Hundreds of people are turning to the Lord for the first time at these showings. The film is being downloaded into many Smartphones. Micro SD cards containing the film and audio Bibles were placed in all the wards of the Angau General Hospital in Lae. Many leaders are asking for “JESUS” to be shown in their communities. Praise the Lord for this powerful tool being used by the Holy Spirit to bring people into the Kingdom of God.

Lausanne Upcoming Events – https://www.lausanne.org/upcoming-gatherings/

For some of our ION partners the idea that each month a different ION Prayer Focus has been published since 2007 might be new to you.  But all along the way, we continue to see God answering the prayers of His saints. If you are new to praying for the Orality Network, WE WELCOME YOU!

This next two months we invite all our partners to slow down and take some time to ponder with God the Father, Son & Holy Spirit and to praise Him for His activity.

We invite you to ABIDE in new ways over these next two months. . .

John 15:5 “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.” 

We join together to intentionally —ABIDE— in July & August in new ways!

Since 2006 a small group of intercessors and ION partners have gathered each Thursday, that opportunity continues. We have had to change the “dial in number”, but the idea that each week the Orality Network STOPS TO PRAY on Thursday at 2pm EDT wherever you are, with whoever you are with continues!

We invite you to jump on the call and share what God is doing with you in Orality or just join the intercessors to pray!

NEW ION Prayer Number Box

Collaborating Together Praying PRAY TO THE LORD OF THE HARVEST

For the months of July & August – We ask you to join in praying for these public prayer items from ION Partner Groups:

Pray for the dubbing of the JESUS film in two languages of Asia to go well. Pray for those who will be the different characters for the films. Pray they would act out their roles in a way that best depicts the Biblical characters and that God would be glorified in the process.

Give thanks to God for the production of audio materials, Scripture Apps and Youtube videos in various Romani languages in Romania. Pray for the publishing process of these materials to go smoothly. Pray these Scripture materials will be a blessing to many Roma* people. (*The Roma people, often also referred to as Gypsy, are originally from India and now live scattered all over the world, especially Europe.)

Pray for the preparations for the launch of audio Scriptures in two languages, Abidji and Agni Sanvi. Facilitators are being trained to listen attentively to the Scriptures and to interact with them. Pray for the facilitators as they take the new skills to share in the language communities. Thank God for the staff of Faith Comes By Hearing who have recorded and edited the Scriptures and prepared them for distribution.

Praise God that everything has been finalized to go ahead with the recording of the JESUS Film in a language of the Caucasus. It is a huge job to prepare a dozen actors to read their parts dramatically and then to record them. Pray that everything will go smoothly.

Praise God for the completion on the Yakan New Testament recordings. Pray for the six to eight month editing and finishing process by FCBH before the final product can be released to the public. Pray that many people will hear the message of the New Testament. Pray also for more interest in the many materials available at the Yakan website.

Praise God the whole of the New Testament and Genesis will be recorded for the Flame* people in West Africa over the next two months. Over 99% of Flame speakers are Muslims. Pray they will hear this recording and turn to Christ as their Saviour. (*Pseudonym, fictitious name to protect this people group.)

Pray for the successful recording of audio stories of Solomon, Jonah and Jesus with speakers of the Luma languages in a sensitive country in Eurasia. Pray against significant spiritual opposition such as they have encountered during previous recordings.

Pray that God will use the JESUS Film in two languages in Eurasia to draw many people to him.

Pray that the trauma healing radio programmes being recorded in the Kabba language this month will bring hope and healing from God’s word. The Kabba area has been especially hard-hit by rebel violence.

Pray for the translation and linguistic adviser working with a people group in SiberiaPray that God will guide her as she trains people for a Bible storying project.

Praise God for the storying workshops that were completed in Northern Thailand. As a result, future storying workshops will be conducted for church leaders so that they can use storying in their churches. Pray for the team of consultants who will come and help with storying in Northern Thailand. Pray for those who participated in the workshops, and that they will share what they learned and promote the good news of Jesus in this part of Thailand.

Praise God for the 14 oral stories from the Bible that were checked and approved by consultants. Pray for the team as they look for two people who do not know the good news of Jesus to do the initial readings. Pray as these stories are shared to proclaim the good news of Jesus to the people in Southern Thailand.

Pray for more than 50 pastors in a restricted region who have committed to stand in unity. If one of them is arrested and thrown in jail, the rest will go to that place and demand they all be jailed or that the jailed pastor be released if he has not done wrong. They are determined to continue spreading the gospel with confidence. They are distributing SD cards with New Testament Apps (audio and text), a whole evangelistic film, worship songs and sermons. Their goal is to distribute 6,000 SD cards and 4,000 audio players. Pray for those who receive the material as there is a lot of hunger and openness to the gospel.

Pray for 13 new oral Bible storying projects beginning in one region. Some of the language communities have few Christ followers. More than 50 languages in South Asia have storying projects. Pray for newly trained mentors and story checkers going through a training-of-trainers phase. In another region this phase will expand from three to nine language groups. Pray that these trainees will have time to check stories and train others, even though they have additional administrative responsibilities. Praise God for renewing His church in this region and bringing many to faith through these oral storytellers.

Pray for a mostly Muslim-background language community in South Asia has a completed New Testament translation and is working on the Old Testament. Progress has slowed recently. Pray for renewed progress and continued funding. Ask for God to provide a new translator when the current translator retires in 2019.

Praise God that during the month of Ramadan, videos were used in portions of the Sermon on the Mount and were posted daily to the Facebook page. There are over 15,000 views were recorded. Pray for the spread of these Scripture videos, as well as the spread of the new Android and iPhone Scripture apps.

Praise God that the introduction to Bible storying was well received. Five churches were represented, and 20 people participated in the event. There is a strong interest in an Oral Bible Storying project. Pray for the staff who will begin to interact with churches and individuals to set up a storying workshop in the near future.

Praise God for new songs in several vernacular languages of Asia. Pray for those doing the recording and editing so they can be distributed widely. Thank God that the songs are a useful took to enable local believers to share and build bridges with others in their communities.

As we move forward in the final months of 2018, we want to take this opportunity to say THANK YOU for partnering to pray for Oral & Oral Bible-less People Groups. THANK YOU for praying Matthew 9:37-38 and Luke 10:2 Lord, Close the Gap in people groups who need Scripture in their heart language. And THANK YOU for being intentional to catch what God is and has been doing within the Orality Network today and for the past 14 years since the Lausanne 2004 gathering where ORALITY was presented and the launch of the official International Orality Network come forth!

As those who pray for the Orality Network join in asking God for the “more” of what He has in store for everyone going into the future!

We invite you to take time in these two months to intentionally:

STOP

PONDER

MAKE SPACE FOR GOD

BE INTENTIONAL TO CARVE OUT SACRED SPACE IN OUR BUSY LIVES 

LET A SHIFT HAPPEN IN YOUR PRAYER LIFE

Psalm 46:10, “Be still, and know that I am God; / I will be exalted among the nations, / I will be exalted in the earth.”. This verse comes from a longer section of Scripture that proclaims the power and security of God.

PRAYER DOES NOT ALWAYS HAPPEN IN WORDS

 

August 2018

For the third year in a row, we are calling our partners to join in fasting from Social Media for the month of August. 

United in Prayer. . . Lord, close the gap, bring Your Word to the Every & All across the globe. We unite in the prayer of Luke 10:2. In Jesus name. Amen

Let’s pray for a greater portion of not just the thought process of thinking that a couple of people who you think are praying –but the reality of knowing we have prayer support and full prayer coverage however that looks for each group within the ION network. Last year we invited you to join to pray for dedicated Prayer Associates for each of our ION Regions.  That it would be a shift, into the arena of extraordinary prayer as the norm. What God does is extraordinary, it cannot happen without our extraordinary God.

We are seeing firsthand the effect of extraordinary prayer in this mix of collaborating together! God has and is answering our prayers!

To honor His work let us look back over the past few months and years on a stroll of prayer reminders and answers He has given.

REMEMBERING BACK. . . As we pray God has continued to bring us the “more” of Himself out into the answers to our prayers. Let’s take a few minutes and think back to the shift of ION receiving Dr. David Swarr as the “new” Executive Director. Do you remember how God led the Orality Network to unite? We took a 50 Day/ 7 Week Journey in Prayer:

Week 1 Listen Afresh:  Lord, Teach Us To Pray — Lord, Teach Us To Finish Well: Weaving the 4 new focus emphasis items into the topics each week:
1. Global Positioning
2. Next Generation — “students and young adults”
3. Media-ization “getting the Story out
4. Maintaining the centrality of all we do to be the Bible — The WORD

Asking the Lord to give us fresh vision and insight into what He wants to do with and through the network in the next few years. 

Week 2 Let us pray: Lord, take us where You want us to go. Let us meet You this week in our prayer times. Let us see Your Presence in the work You have allowed us to be a part of, for Your Glory. Prepare us to step back from what we think we know. Lord, take us to where You want us to go. Let us be ready and willing to receive. Let us be open to discover what You are wanting us to see and receive from You. Give those open spaces, open chairs, open arenas to allow for others that You are wanting to bring, to step in. We are making space for You and for those You are drawing. Let us receive them to bring the portion that only they can bring.

Lord, let us see the big picture. Align the body, to see our true global positioning. We know that in order to fulfill what You have called us to be a part of in Your plan, things may change, we trust You. Father, we are asking You to show us how that might look in these coming days.  May we be waiting expectantly and ready. Just as the early disciples had to wait, we wait on You. May You pour out a greater portion of the Holy Spirit, may we receive power from on high to be Your witnesses in (our) Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. For Your glory. Father, link us together as one body, in unity and in fellowship, so that the world might know YOU. Amen 

Week 3Focus our listening — Really focus on hearing the dreams, visions and aspirations you and others have for the movement. 

Week 4 Exploring Needs — Exploring the felt needs that the network should be serving. Everyone at Pentecost heard the Word proclaimed in their own heart language. Who is still in need of Scripture?

Week 5 Discover God’s View — Focus on hearing from a broader circle of those from around the globe who would like to contribute.

Week 6Seeing the Potential — Recognizing the potential of the orality movement that lies within the next generation. 

Week 7 Serving Effectively, Stewarding the Sacred Gift — Join in prayer that the network can serve the Church with increasing effectiveness, fostering and encouraging a global orality movement to disciple all oral learners.

Pentecost 2015 — Let us pray for a fresh, historic outpouring of the Holy Spirit, upon the International Orality Network and ION Partners, so that we might fulfill our call to Influence the body of Christ to make disciples of all oral learners.  Asking for a new anointing as we seek to influence the body of Christ to bring the Gospel to those oral peoples, unengaged unreached people groups, and oral Bible-less who still wait to hear the saving message of Jesus Christ in a way that they can really understand and receive.  Amen

We have seen answers to those prayers and answers to prayer specifically for the work of prayer in ION. And in the answer in prayer for Dr. David Swarr to continue on for another 3 years.

We STOP to REJOICE that in January 2018, we were able to announce we now have Prayer Associates for three ION Regions!

What is on the horizon? Only God knows, but we know for sure that we must still move into the “more of prayer” such as is spoken of in Ephesians 3:20-21. Thinking back to the original path and the shifts that have happened even to the small group that began the work of prayer as we see it today behind the Orality Network and where we are believing God is taking the network is wide open because of the work of the Holy Spirit in the partners connected in collaborating together in prayer and mission.   

Enjoy your July and then in August pull back with us.

We will still be praying, so continue to stop to pray each Thursday and join in on the dial in number if you are available.

JUNE 2018 ION Prayer Focus

ION PointofTheSpear

We invite you to pray each Thursday:

If you are available to pray with others we invite you to dial in at 2pm EASTERN

Dial: (641) 552-9404

Code: 818908# (USA)

94EF1147-E9FB-450D-A85E-09F59544848B

Teams meet on this conference prayer call and would love to have you join. If you would need a number to use for your country so you can join just send an email to: IONPrayer@gmail.com

So much to pray for and yet, so much more that we need to know in order to minister to the heart of God and for us to be effective in a life of prayer.

We continue to ask God for the “more” of Ephesians 3:20-21!

What does being effective in prayer look like?

Recently I ran across a new friend who writes about prayer, J.D. Walt. Take a few minutes and click on one of the links below to listen to or look at what he has written about learning to rest from prayer. . .  which may be foreign to many in the world of wanting to bring to their sphere of influence a prayer culture.

THINK ABOUT THIS:

We must rest from prayer jd walt

Check it out here:

Audio:  http://s3.amazonaws.com/ats-dailytext/05-23-18.mp3

Text:  https://www.seedbed.com/why-we-must-rest-from-prayer/

J.D. Walt may be on to something! He is on of those nameless faceless ones who have the ability to hear from God in a way and in a quality that is foreign to many. But God has primarily used the nameless faceless ones to do what only He can do.

Join to pray for those who will be those “next” nameless faceless that move God’s work into the next generation…

Father, we thank You for the heart of obedient servants.

We ask now for qualities in those laborers You are calling into His Harvest fields to be men & women such as this man —wanting to do exactly what the Master is requiring of them and quite content to not need to be known.

Pour out the spirit of trusting in You for the strategies that will be needed and for Your sheep to walk together in prayer into the future in more intimacy.  

Allow for hearts ready to listen and hear His voice those that He knows and those that will follow Him no matter what the cost. So grateful for the Shepherds voice… My sheep hear My voice…

John 10:27My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.”

 
pray BIG

Join to pray BIG (These are all public items):

Praise God for websites in eight new languages that are now available for distributing Christian materials and Scripture. Ask God to use these websites to draw people to Himself. Pray for the Scripture engagement workshop planned for April. Several teams will work to prepare additional material for the web.


Praise God for the progress made so far in preparing the JESUS Film script for recording in a language of Asia. Ask God to send the voice actors needed for all the parts, so the recording can go forward. Pray for the recording team as they make the recordings and then edit them to fit the Film. Pray for the people of the language community as they read the New Testament and interact with Scripture on Scripture Apps. Pray for the audio recording of the New Testament to be completed soon.


Praise God for the commitment of Brooke’s Point Palawano believers to plant churches in difficult areas through Bible Listening Groups with the audio New Testament. Health issues, lack of proper nutrition, dirt floors that turn to mud in rainy season, threats from outsiders are just a few of the trials they face with their church members. Yet by God’s grace through prayer in the power of His love, they persevere. Please join in prayer for them.


Praise God that the books of James and Mark were checked* in 10 languages in the Aitape West area in early 2018. Ask God to use the recent visits into thesed areas to encourage the community members to support the translation projects for these languages.


Praise God for the recording of the Bwanabwana New Testament at the Alotau Regional Centre in early March. Pray for the Gumawana translation team as they read through the New Testament a final time before beginning publication. Pray for protection and good health for the staff and translation teams working during this time.


Pray for guidance for the people from four language communities in Southeast Asia who are gathering next week to craft two oral Bible stories to share with their communities.

After some delays, in 2017 the New Testament translation in a language of the Americas was sent to South Korea for printing. A Scripture launching celebration is planned for this year. Ask God to guide those planning the event. Pray that it will bring followers of Jesus together in unity. Pray for unity among the churches in the area and that people will join together to use and promote the New Testament. A multi-voice audio recording of the New Testament is available on “Proclaimers,” solar-powered digital players. Because this is primarily an oral society, pray that many people will listen to the recording. Ask the Holy Spirit to touch and transform many lives as people listen to and read the Word in their heart language. (Adapted from the 2018 Wycliffe USA Finish Line.)

A translation team in South Asia has high goals for this year. They desire to finish translating and finalizing 1-2 Thessalonians, 1-3 John, 1-2 Peter, Jude and Philemon. Then they will review the entire New Testament. They need God’s wisdom to create an audio recording and an Android app with the New Testament. The team wants to produce at least the Gospels and Acts into both formats this year. Tools like these are very useful to speakers who are not accustomed to reading their own language. Ask God to direct the team as they work toward publishing the New Testament with the text in three languages: the local language, a national language and English. Mother-tongue translators desire to start literacy classes in their villages. Pray for God to open doors and for interest to be high. (Adapted from the 2018 Wycliffe USA Finish Line.)
Pray for the successful recording of audio stories of Solomon, Jonah and Jesus with speakers of the Luma languages in a sensitive country in Eurasia. Pray against significant spiritual opposition such as they have encountered during previous recordings.

Praise the Lord for the completion of the audio recording of the Gela New Testament recently. Four men from the Gela language community in the Solomon Islands worked hard with staff from Faith Comes by Hearing (FCBH) to do this recording. They completed the work in a period of six weeks during April and May. Praise the Lord for their good health, stamina and strength throughout the process. Pray for the Lord to use these audio Scriptures to bring the Gela people to salvation in Christ. The Gela translation project is one of the 14 languages where Bible Translation and Literacy Partnership Solomon Islands (BTLP SI) members work. The New Testament was completed and launched in December 2016.

Praise God for the release of the New Testament Scripture App for a language of Asia in early May. Pray that it will spread widely, be well received and used, and bear fruit. The New Testament will be recorded sometime between September and November. Pray for strong voice actors to come forward for the recording, and that they come from all the denominations in the language area. Pray, too, that the newly released dictionary portion will be a blessing to readers of the language.

Pray for the team working to prepare an oral translation of the “JESUS” Film script for a language of West Africa.  Thank God that all of the translation team are from the language area, and that the project is community led. Pray for this oral method to be successful, so that it may be used for other as-yet-unwritten languages. Pray for God’s direction in the use of this oral approach.

Did you know that there are now over one thousand new top-level domain names, such as .app, .bank and .news? One of these is .bible and it’s fast becoming the leading online destination to discover more about Bible work. Among the millions of websites available, the .bible domain name is instantly recognizable, mobile-friendly and clearly identifies the website as one where people can engage and share God’s Word.

Find.bible is one example of how this has been used. Find.bible is the worldwide web directory of Bibles and biblical resources in the 6,000+ languages of the world, cataloging all kinds of print, digital, audio and visual Bibles. United Bible Societies (UBS) is one of the partners that has helped to catalogue over 3,500 Bibles and 77,000 resources.

NEW Prayer Resource – THE THIRTY ONE: Largest Frontier People Groups

 

The Thirty One Prayer Resource

Did you know?

One fourth of the world lives in reclusive Frontier People Groups (FPGs—less than 0.1% Christian of any kind).

These FPGs perceive Christianity as a foreign influence threatening to tear apart their families and communities. Traditional church planting and witness to individuals within FPGs reinforces these fears. Thus, FPGs are reached only through the blessing of God sweeping through the families of these peoples in Jesus movements, in fulfillment of
God’s promise to Abram (Gen 12) to bless all earth’s families.

Half the population of all 4,700+ Frontier People Groups (FPG) live in these 31 largest FPGs.

WE BELIEVE PRAYER CHANGES THINGS!

IMPORTANCE OF PRAYING IN FAITH – from Ryan Shaw (SV2 Movement_

“We are meant to expect to obtain the things we ask that are according to God’s will. Much prayer is offered without any real belief that anything will really change. Unbelief is a great obstacle and a reason behind much unanswered prayer.

Increased expectation is connected to a sense of evidence that what we are seeking God for is indeed His will. Expectation grows as we receive a greater vision of God’s power. Paul reveals this in Ephesians 1:18 -19, “that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, 19 and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power.”  — Seven Characteristics of Effective Global Harvest Prayer by Ryan Shaw of SV2 Movement in the blog, Abandoned Times.

March 2018 ION Prayer Focus

March 2018 ION Prayer Focus

Will you not watch and pray with Me?

If you are able to connect to the weekly prayer call, we invite you:
Join each Thursday at 2pm (EDT) GMT-5
Dial: (641) 552-9404
Code: 818908#

Each month we offer an open invitation to come and join others to pray for UUPGs, all Oral Peoples & Oral Bible-less, Orality.net partner groups and Great Commission Partners. Each Thursday at 2pm (EDT) GMT-5 a small group gathers to pray together.

We invite you to join to pray or to share what you are doing in Orality and let us come alongside you in the place of prayer for what God is allowing you to be involved in.

 

Will you not stay with me

We invite you to #PRAYtheWord in Matthew 26:36-46 & Mark 14:32-42 in this Lenten Season.

And He said to Peter, “So could you not watch with me one hour? Watch and pray that you may not enter into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.”
To listen to the Scripture portion, click here

Each Thursday those involved with the Orality network and our partner groups unite to pray. We ask you to pull away and gather together as a group and really pray!

Since ION is a network and our partners are all around the globe, the best way to connect is to ask everyone to link together each month in united prayer through posts like this one, and the ION Prayer Focus each month. Visit https://orality.net or https://ionprayer.com for more information.

Romans 8 26

As we move forward in this Season, I was reminded of our challenge to know the “backstory” to who God is by our dear friend, Avery. May we introduce you to an orality partner group again that is working toward bringing the Word to every people through the God’s Story?

BlazingTrees300 Names of Father Son Holy Spirit BlazingTrees.org

This month as you pray for Oral Peoples, and those who still wait to hear the Name of Jesus –would you ponder with us the “backstory to some of your favorites”? Our dear friend, Avery Willis shared with me, “Linda, you know all the names of God and use them well, but let me ask you pointedly, do you know the story behind the names? The backstory of each one released the story of who God is and each one give another layer of God releasing Who He Is and the power of the I AM in greater ways.”

The “backstory” is always the best part of the story… because you get to know what it was that God was trying to bring to His people that could only be told through a story!

backstory

Do you know the “backstory” to your favorite name of God?

In Wikipedia it is described this way: A backstory, background story, back-story, or background is a set of events presented as preceding and leading up to that particular place in the story or plot. It is a literary device of a narrative history all chronologically earlier than the narrative of present or primary interest. Even a purely historical work selectively reveals backstory to the audience.

We invite you to visit our Orality friends at https:blazingtrees.org

We think the Master Storyteller was on to something in His pattern of presenting Himself through Who He presented Himself as and to His Timing!

February 2018 ION Prayer Focus

Feb 2018 Prayer Focus Title Picture

Each Thursday those involved with the Orality network and our partner groups unite to pray. We ask you to pull away and gather together as a group and really pray!

Since ION is a network and our partners are all around the globe, the best way to connect is to ask everyone to link together each month in united prayer through posts like this one called, The ION Prayer Focus.

The ION Prayer Team encourages you to be an advocate by helping others see the great need for strategic prayer for oral learners!

International Orality Network  -Influencing the body of Christ to make disciples of all oral learners

Isaiah 42:16 “I will lead the blind by ways they have not known, along unfamiliar paths I will guide them; I will turn the darkness into light before them and make the rough places smooth. These things I will do; I will not forsake them.”

Helping others see this and coming alongside them is needed to make the shift. It has been said, “Every great move of God was birthed in a movement of prayer.” We believe that goes directly back to the birth of the Church, when the disciples and the 120 were praying in the Upper Room. This we consider was a movement of prayer going into Pentecost.

We are asking, “Who can we help to resource others to see prayer as “An invisible, yet tangible platform from which everything flows out from, as it did in the first century church?”

Our teams continue to ask God for a greater, more effective collaborative movement of prayer and missions. This requires getting prayer advocates and even prayer strategists in place for each of the least reached people groups, and for all of us to work alongside each other.

This month we want to continue to pray for Regional Prayer Associates for each and every area where Orality is happening around the globe. Right now ION is focusing on making sure we have Prayer Associates in each of our Regions. In the emerging Regions this is also a need. For those who are involved in Orality in your Country or Local area, many of these same things will be needed. Because ION is a network, each partner or group functions according to what their need is. To get a Prayer Network up and running  many of the same things are needed at the beginning no matter who your group is. The key is to allow for what you to in prayer and mobilization to be able to be multiplied and reproducible.

What might the work of a Regional Prayer Associate look like? It looks different for each Region, just the same way it looks different for each group who is looking to have effective prayer coverage in place for their group and work of God.

Let’s ask this question:  “Have you recently agreed to help START UP PRAYER MOBILIZATION OR A STRATEGIC PRAYER NETWORK for your group?

Over the years working with the network, we are now seeing an increase of more groups bringing on a prayer strategist or prayer mobilizer champion who is tasked with the initial startup of coordinating or mobilizing prayer for the work God has called their group to be involved in. This is very much needed, but it is a huge step for that person who agrees to give themselves to this work. Each network, group, ministry, organization or agency should have prayer. Prayer is best done when it is presented to a larger group who will engage together and in multiple layers to be most effective.

This month we want to look at the nuts and bolts of “How to get started creating a prayer network.”

Pray 4 Tunisa has posted to their website several great resources for you to use. You are invited to use this resource as a pathway for you to get started. Put your name or group into the plan and get going!

How to Start a Prayer NetworkStart a World Changing Prayer Network

Get Started: Has God’s heart for the nations become your heart? Wishing you could do something significant in behalf of one of the 6700 unreached people groups in the world? You can. Start a prayer network to intercede on behalf of a people group. Prayer will soon result in vision and collaboration!

To start the network you’ll need to answer some questions. The Pray4Tunisia partnership is used as an example of how you might answer the questions.

    1. WHAT IS THE OBJECTIVE OF THE PRAYER NETWORK?

      The Pray4Tunisia network promotes “strategic prayer for a church multiplication movement”

    2. WHAT PRAYER WILL HELP ACCOMPLISH THOSE OBJECTIVES?

      The Pray4Tunisia network prays about issues that David Garrison’s research indicates have been extremely strategic in past church multiplication movements

    3. WHAT’S A SHORT, DESCRIPTIVE, MEMORABLE NAME FOR THE NETWORK?

      Pray4Tunisia

    4. WILL YOU NEED TO CONTROL CONTENT?

      Pray4Tunisia promotes prayer for an Islamic nation where Christians have been persecuted for years. Because it’s virtually impossible to make sure that a large network will uniformly apply good security protocol, we decided to allow open access to the network but to rigorously control what information is shared. Details that would endanger believers are left out.

    5. WHAT TOOLS WILL HELP YOUR NETWORK?
 Create an E-mail Address 

An option for a free email address is to sign up for an account at Gmail

Make the email address descriptive (perhaps Pray4XYZ@gmail.com) so that it’s not treated as spam

Pray4Tunisia has helped launch over a dozen other prayer networks.

As many of you are aware, ION has been asking and praying for more full Bibles to be translated. As we pray, we have been watching what God is doing in Bible Translation work. This may be a new area for you. So this month we are sharing a group that is very active in Bible Translation. Each month this group posts an update to share what they are doing and what is happening in their work. The PNG Experience is one story group that shares what they are doing in Orality, they work in many different spheres. Check out and pray along as you read their February story:

A huge THANK YOU to all who joined to pray for the recent Fellowship of Prayer Strategists Gathering. God met us and we individually and corporately went deeply into intimacy with the Father and with each other. Twenty three gathered for four days, with 13 NEW Prayer Strategists in our midst.

What might it look like to be a part of the work of God as a prayer strategist?

The ION Prayer Team encourages you to be an advocate by helping others see the great need for strategic prayer for Oral and Oral Bible-less people groups. Helping others see this and coming alongside them is needed to make the shift. It has been said, “Every great move of God was birthed in a movement of prayer.” We believe that goes directly back to the birth of the Church, when the disciples and the 120 were praying in the Upper Room. This we consider was a movement of prayer going into Pentecost.

We are asking who can we help to resource others to see prayer as “An invisible, yet tangible platform from which everything flows out from, as it did in the first century church.”

Our teams are asking God for a greater, more effective collaborative movement of prayer. This requires getting prayer advocates and even prayer strategists in place for each of the least reached people groups, and for all of us to work alongside each other. That need will continue until there are zero people groups still waiting to hear the name of Jesus.
