Extraordinary Prayer for the Malay

Tuesday, October 29
7:00 – 9:00 pm • South Atrium
 

The Malay Focus Team (MFT) invites you to an evening of Extraordinary Prayer for the Malay. This will be a time of prayer, worship, scripture reading, and fasting (as the Lord leads you).

As you fast and pray, we encourage you to reflect on the following prompts from David Platt and the Secret Church ’19 event:

  • Those who celebrate the ascension of the King now crave the consummation of the kingdom.
  • More than we want our hunger to cease, we want His kingdom to come!
  • More than our stomachs long to be full, our souls long to see Christ.

engage in god's great
global plan

The Global Missions Team (GMT) wants to ENGAGE each member of the body of Christ at Midland Free to discover and fulfill his or her unique role in the great global plan of God to make disciple makers of Jesus Christ

We do this by providing opportunities to Learn, Pray, Give, Send, Go, Welcome and Mobilize. Ultimately, we want to see disciple making movements that lead to churches planting churches among the least reached people groups so that God’s name and glory cover the earth as the waters cover the sea (Habakkuk 2:14).

The GMT currently has four distinct Focus areas of ENGAGEment:

  • Gulu Compassion (GFT)
  • Sending Our Own (SOOFT)
  • Malay Adopted People Group (MFT)
  • Tatar Adopted People Group (TFT)

learn

To engage in global missions, we need to learn more of God’s heart and purposes for the world. Goers learn about the people and places they will go. Senders learn how to meet the needs of their missionaries. Intercessors learn because informed prayer is effective prayer. Welcomers learn how to build bridges of understanding with the internationals near them. Mobilizers are most effective as they stay abreast of God’s work in the world.

PRAY

Prayer is essential to God’s work in the world. Intercessors lift all aspects of missionary work to the One who has ordained prayer as the primary means of employing God’s will. Andrew Murray says it well, “...it is to prayer that God has given the right to take hold of Him and His strength. It is on prayer that the promises wait for their fulfillment, the kingdom for its coming, the glory of God for its full revelation.” Prayer for the nations is truly a ministry.

GIVE

There is no greater investment than in giving to the work of spreading the gospel of Jesus. It is amazing how God can use even the smallest gift to make a significant global, eternal impact. The scriptures are clear that God is pleased when his people invest what he has given them for his name, kingdom, and glory.

SEND

Since the time of the Apostle Paul, missionaries haven’t just gone, they have been sent, supported and encouraged by God’s people. Senders pray, communicate, organize events, print, distribute prayer letters and a wide variety of other creative actions. At Midland Free, we call these groups Timothy Teams. For those who can’t go, sending is a vital way to be involved with God’s work in the world.

GO

Some people are “goers,” who typically give up the life they have always known in exchange for a life in a new culture among people who speak a different language, eat different foods and see the world differently — in order to be conduits of Jesus’ love. It may be for a few days on a short-term ministry trip, a few years or a lifetime, but without those who are willing to step out in faith, the nations will not receive the gospel.

WELCOME

The presence of internationals living in our communities provides a great opportunity to share the gospel and show the love of Christ. Someone from an “unreached” people group may live right next door. Welcomers intentionally share their lives out of a desire to reach out and love them in his name.

MOBILIZE

Before one goes, sends or becomes an intercessor, one must be mobilized. Mobilizers are those who educate, make aware and help move other people to the point of involvement. The Church must be mobilized to take the gospel to the ends of the earth.
