Upcoming 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!
Fada N’ Gourma, Burkina Faso
One of the heritages we have from the former Soviet Union is the whole idea of leadership and what it looks like. According to that world view, leadership takes advantage of others. I think this is probably the most difficult thing we struggle with right now. And we will be struggling with this for the next generation or so. If you take that perspective, it’s very challenging because people don’t trust you. They have learned everyone is using them or abusing them. When you try to motivate them, or inspire them, they are always looking for some ulterior motive that you might have. The Summit taught us that leadership is about servanthood and giving back. Leaders have to give something. This is opposite to our thinking. But through GLS, we discovered that leadership is about what you give back.
We want to keep the price accessible to pastors and leaders who usually do not earn much money. One of our strategies is trying to approach market place leaders and sponsors to help us with the costs. Please pray we can make the GLS accessible to everyone.
Ciudad de Mexico, Mexico
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.
Nigeria, like any other African country, has a leadership problem. Corruption is one of the major challenges we have in Nigeria. It is one of the reasons we have so much poverty. The quality of our nation depends on the quality of the leaders we are raising. To raise and multiply leaders will bring about a change in my community, my society and my country at large. The GLS has given us that platform and the resources to do that. This is the biggest desire of my heart.
