A Message for Christian Leaders

Greetings in the Name of Christ! I hope you are blessed.

Many Christians say that they pray for the military, and I don’t doubt that they do. I know that many people are praying for me at any given time. I know they are because I can feel God’s hand all around me. The prayers of my partners have “availed much” in my life. My family and I would not be where we are today without them.

My heart’s desire is to see my fellow military service members come to Christ. It’s as simple as that. If ever someone was a missionary to his own people, I am. God has continually called me to work within, for, and toward the military community, of which I am a part. No matter what I have hoped to do with my life and ministry, the thing that I keep being drawn to is working for God with the military.

There is nothing really unique about my ministry. I do what you would do. I pray continually for a revival; for chapel and church doors to be broken down because they can’t contain the number of new believers. I witness when and where appropriate. I mentor young believers and young sailors. I preach when the opportunity arises.

Each year, on the week of Veteran’s Day, I host a Military Prayer Week (MPW) on my website. From Monday through Friday of that week, I will have two prayers posted, one in the morning and one in the evening, to help guide believers in praying for the military. Naturally, five days and ten prayers can’t cover the entire gamut of needs in the military, but it is a start. My hope is that people will desire to continue praying for the military after the week is over.

The next MPW is coming up from November 8-12. Please make it known to your church and help spread the word to other Christian leaders. If we can somehow get a large group of believers behind this movement, then perhaps, if God wills it, a revival can start in the military. I can’t tell you how much I want that. A revival in the military most likely equals a revival in the rest of the country, and I know you want that as much as I do.

Contact me for more details. I want to help you and your congregation reach “my people!”
