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!

Niamey, Niger

The people are good people, but it is difficult to be a Christian leader here. We have a responsibility to provide spiritually and physically for the people and talk about the Bible. And we also must take care of the new believers, especially with the persecution of Christians in this country. Our prayer is that the church would have a great voice in the nation. We don’t want fear to keep us down. We want the church to come together, give a hand to one another, and be strong with one another, winning the nation for Christ.

Lafia, Nigeria

Hsinchu, Taiwan

Lagos, Nigeria

Bamenda, Cameroon

It’s kind of challenging, but over the years, my big dream for Cameroon has been to see right­eousness installed in the nation. Cameroon is a very blessed nation. We are en­dowed with a lot of natural resources, but we are not able to exploit that to the benefit of the people of Cameroon. “Everybody wins when a leader gets better.” When we are able to impact so­ciety—the system that is in place—to the point that they are able to understand Christian values and leadership skills and apply them, then like the Bible says, “Righteousness ex­alts the nations.” When that happens, we can really see the resources God has put into the country begin to be profitable to the people.

Karakol’, Kyrgyzstan

Distrito Nacional, Dominican Republic

Villa Nueva, Guatemala

Tegucigalpa, Honduras

I love my country, but we need great leadership. We need people who to make decisions to benefit others, rather than themselves. As a leader, you have to be a servant. As a leader, you have to do the tough work. You have to do things when no one is watching. Do things when the honor is going to someone else. Pray for more servant leaders in Honduras.

Managua, Nicaragua

Cancun, Mexico

Mazatlan, Mexico

Sonsonate, El Salvador

November 17

Cakovec, Croatia

Arusha, Tanzania

My vision is to reach more young men and women so they can learn about leadership and can develop their leadership skills. Everyone wins when a leader gets better, so if these young men and women get better as leaders, I believe the economy in Tanzania is going to thrive even more than it is now.

Otautau, New Zealand

Concepcion, Chile

Charleroi, Belgium

Bengaluru, India

Chennai, India

Indoor, India

Novi Sad, Serbia

Our youth need to be encouraged and reminded they have potential and are designed by God. Because of the Summit, I’m drawing closer to students, and I started to work with youth to care about them, serve them and encourage their potential. Even though someone may be coming from a hard, dysfunctional family, God can still use them to be tomorrow’s successful fruit-bearing leaders. My grander vision over the next 10 years is to see the Summit increasingly become a tool of encouragement for young people to help them develop their potential, see their gifts and talents, and trust more in God for the future.
