Prayer Support Letter 

March 2018

Greetings to everyone who reads this Prayer Support Letter. I trust you will catch something of the heart-beat of this Ministry. We are committed to get the Message of Jesus Christ out to the nations through the power of the Holy Spirit and Prophetic Ministry. Prophetic Ministry functions according to our ability to hear the voice of God and then do what He asks of us. That way we can only have good success, for we are working together with God for the fulfilling of His purposes.

  •  There is no greater privilege than to be chosen and called of God to represent Him on the earth in these days.


 Love is the test of how much we are committed to doing what God asks of us. It is also the key to being fruitful and successful in the purposes of the Kingdom of God. May the Holy Spirit stir us all more and more to be more sensitive to His voice, and may we have such a love for Jesus that we are committed to doing whatever He asks of us (see 1 Corinthians 13 and 1 John 3 & 4). Jesus said: “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him. He who does not love Me does not keep My words; and the word which you hear is not Mine but the Father’s who sent Me. These things I have spoken to you while being present with you. But the helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you” (John 14:23-26 ).

Love for Jesus is demonstrated in our obedience to that which He speaks to us. And what He speaks to us is exactly right for us. We can trust His word totally, knowing that whatever He speaks is the truth. Things always work out right when we are committed to obeying what Jesus says to us. There may be opposition and testing times along the way, but the end result is always much better for us and the glory of God.

The love of Jesus working in and through us means that we are ministering with the right motivation. Our ministry will give the glory to God. Our motive is to please God and He has given us the Great Commission to take His Message to very nation on earth (Mark 16:15-20 ). This generation desperately needs to hear the Message of Jesus Christ, so they can repent and turn to Him, and know the joy of sins forgiven ~ and then the joy of fulfilling the purposes of God for their lives. May we all be living each day to fulfil God’s purposes in our lives. That way we can only make a positive difference in the lives of others. God bless you! ~ Rodney W. Francis.
