ION Prayer seeks to link with others in prayer support & mobilization working to reach UPG’s & UUPG’s. ION seeks to link with missionaries, mission agencies and churches who are working to reach oral* communicators who make up 2/3 of the world. Yes, 2/3 of the world are oral learners.
[*Oral peoples sharing information in ways other than “letters on paper” or formats that would require reading. They primarily use stories, songs, dance, poems, etc. to disseminate their history or to teach. In areas that are highly literate, it would be the people who prefer getting their information in means other than just reading, such as digital, audio, visual, such as internet. Oral learners are very intelligent, just use a means that speaks to them and allows them to understand at a heart level. Visit http://www.Orality.net ]
We need to change the way we are doing missions to reach those who still wait to hear! Does anyone else believe we really do not have a good understanding of LOSTNESS and the need to get to ZERO in God’s Work of the Completion of the Great Commission? Would love to talk to you and ask God how we go at this in unity and love, so that a watching world might know Him.
In addition, this work has been a journey of faith in ways other than financial. We liken the journey to be like a “rocket ship ride of sorts”. We share with others who join us that they might just strap on the harness and learn to just enjoy the ride that God has prepared for us. This literally has beyond our understanding. The cry of our heart being “If you do not go with me I will not go, I NEED the Presence of God on all of this.”
Working with a network, compared to working with the denomination has been life transforming. Read the entire article: https://ionprayer.com/2016/03/15/getting-to-know-me/
Over the past few years we have seen things change dramatically for our teams. We have had the opportunity to work alongside executives and currently are coaching and mentoring 2 networks & 3 organizations as they seek a new wineskin of prayer in this season that includes prayer as a strategy and using the position of a Prayer Strategist within their structure. Focusing primarily on being a God Centered and Spirit Driven model, on mission with God in prayer.
Back in 2008 we began to ponder and ask God about the process of prayer as a foundation of the ministry of the network. He began to download to us a different mindset on how we might change the way we “do” prayer, prayer requests and prayer rooms.
