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!

Cape Town, South Africa

I think the more leaders we reach, the more churches will change, communities will change and countries will change. As Christians, that is part of the tradition—seeing more and more people living devoted lives, living their potential and reaching the broken and lost.

Walls have come down in Canada. Even in some regions of our country where the conversation around following Christ is not popular, The Summit has bridged a gap. It created an opportunity for people to really get to know and see the relevance of what it means to follow Christ. To me, that is one of the most important roles of the Summit.

We have an opportunity to give them a platform to come to together to learn and gain practical, actionable leadership tools right where they are. As a result, we have seen people raise their level of leadership, raise their standards and impact their community and service. We want to see Christians influence the country and the community. We want to see Christians influencing every sector, whether it’s business, politics, education, everything. We want to see credible Christian influence across the country.

In the Latin American culture, especially in Mexico and Central America, women are not supposed to take any role in leadership. Only men. We want to break that. We want to leverage women’s leadership and see more women taking leadership positions in all the fields.
