This Week’s GLS Events & Prayer Requests

Every Tuesday and Thursday morning at 8:30 am CST, our staff gathers together to pray for our partners across the globe.

Please join us in prayer as we lift up the international Summit events happening this weekend. Pray for God’s anointing on every detail and that those who attend would leave feeling equipped, inspired and encouraged to lead the change they long for in their communities.

And if you have a prayer request, please share it with us. We would be honored to pray with you!

November 7

Witney, United Kingdom and Ireland

Diadema, Brazil

Campo Grande, Brazil

Chandigarh, India

Nagpur, India

Mbabane, Swaziland

We have a leadership crisis in Swaziland. We are in a very difficult position economically. We are also struggling spiritually. There is an “orphan heart” we struggle with in our nation. We are not just dealing with physical orphans as a result of HIV and AIDS* where many parents are dying as a result of this pandemic, we’re also struggling spiritually as psychological and emotional orphans. Young people and adults are struggling with an orphan heart; it is fatherless generation. This is a big struggle for us in our country.

Lome, Togo

Uyo, Nigeria

Kohima, India

Taraba, Nigeria

Jalingo, Nigeria

All throughout our history in Nigeria, we have experienced a persistent leadership crisis where leaders ‘seek to be served’ rather than ‘seek to serve.’ Until now, the political class of leaders epitomized this kind of leadership, preferring to use their titles as tools of oppression by laying claim to exorbitant allowances and furnishing extravagant lifestyles at the expense of the people they were to lead. Unfortunately, these same issues began to bleed into the body of Christ. Each year, as we were exposed to the subject of ‘servant leadership’ at the Summit, the excesses and weaknesses of our system became apparent. This led to a paradigm shift  and a renewed vigor towards attaining higher leadership capacity to project the dignity of the body of Christ in Africa. Please pray for this movement.

Terrassa, Spain

Taipei, Taiwan

Lagos, Nigeria

Yaounde, Cameroon

Dakar, Senegal

Bethlehem, Palestine

Our country has experienced more than 70 years of conflict, war and uprisings. There is no peace in the region. Directly working with growing leaders, establishing the church and impacting the community requires experience and a lot of heart to reach out to our nation. We are set in the place where Christianity was born, but sadly there are few Christians. I want to impact my nation for Christ. I believe we can reach millions out of this small place in Bethlehem.

Sao Fidelis, Brazil

Wellington, New Zealand

Tampere, Finland

Riga, Latvia

Eket, Nigeria

San Salvador, El Salvador

Drachten, Netherlands

Mysore, India

Kolkata, India

Cochabamba, Bolivia

La Paz, Bolivia

Maracaibo, Venezuela

My dream is to be able to impact the lives of at least 100,000 Venezuelan and world leaders who can learn, live and lead others towards leadership principles. I pray their influence on society through principles and values based on the bible, can raise a generation that manages to govern with the fear of God in all spheres of influence.

N’Djamena, Chad

Strasbourg, France

Bo, Sierra Leone

Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan

Brownsville, United States

Escuintla, Guatemala

Quetzaltenango, Guatemala

There are a lot of bad things happening in my country right now. There’s a lot of poverty, corruption and violence. But I have a dream. Maybe it’s just in our minds right now, but there is a Guatemala we want. And I know if we follow Jesus and His example, we can change our environment one person at a time, one action at a time. We can change our Guatemala.

Mende, Nigeria

Puerto Barrios, Guatemala

San Miguel, El Salvador

Hradec Kralove, Czech Republic

Matadi, Democratic Republic of the Congo

My dream is to see a new generation of leaders transforming the church, city and country for the better. The GLS has helped shed light on my vision that has felt somewhat blurred. The light has helped me overcome obstacles in order to accomplish my dream!
