Prayer Support Letter

 The Gospel Faith Messenger” Ministry

and Rodney & Jean Francis

Prayer Support Letter 

March 2019

 2019 is already shaping up to be a very eventful and fruitful year in the purposes of God. Doors of opportunity are still open in many parts of the world. We must not allow the negative happenings taking place in many nations to deter us from the calling of God to take the Gospel to every nation before the Lord returns. Jesus said: “And this Gospel of the Kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness (“testimony, as borne or given; the declaration which confirms or makes known anything; witness, or testimony stated from direct knowledge and as an actual declaration of facts” – Bullinger’s) to all the nations, and then the end will come” (Matthew 24:14 , NKJV). If we cannot personally go, then we can be committed to praying and giving so the message gets out. The GFM Ministry cannot keep up with all the requests coming in for books and other aspects of the Ministry. This concerns us as every one of us should carry a desire and burden to be doing all we can to meet the needs of the lost and needy. In spite of what the world tells us, there is a hunger in many hearts to know the truth that will set them free. Man’s ways of providing answers often only produces greater problems, as they do not know or understand that the answer to life’s problems starts when sin is dealt with in our hearts. And it is only the love, grace, mercy and power of Jesus Christ that can take away sins! And God has entrusted us as His witnesses to make known the truth of the Message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ! Let us not be slack in our involvement with the Holy Spirit in being a living witness to the saving grace of Jesus which should now be evident in every born-again, Holy Spirit-filled Christian’s life. Each of us needs to ask ourselves afresh:

  • Am I fulfilling the purpose of God in my life? If not, why not?

  • Is there more that I should be doing in order to help fulfil the Great Commission of taking the Gospel to every nation? Can you name anything?

  • Is my desire for the will of God to be done stronger than all the reasons and excuses I may have been hiding behind?

  • What decisions need to be made in order for me to make positive changes to be a true witness of and for Jesus Christ?

Let us be serious about serving the Lord in this needy hour. God bless you ~ Rodney W. Francis.
