Imagine: Your Birthday a Blessing
Just by skipping your birthday...
That's what Maureen did this year. By giving up (fasting) her birthday to rescue widows in India, she raised a total of $315 dollars. (including personal checks sent directly to her). This was nearly enough to provide 2 widows food and medicine aid FOR A YEAR.

Want to Change the World? Pray.
If you ask me anything in my name, I will do it. - John 14:14
Billions of people are living in India today without having a saving relationship with Jesus. Billions. Unless something changes.
We call them the "unreached" or "unengaged". We hear the statistics and wonder: "What can I do? "
When Jesus was confronted with our dilemma, He saw the "multitudes" and He called them "sheep without a shepherd" and felt "compassion" for them. Then He told His disciples: "The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest." Matthew 9: 35-38
Four things jump out in these verses: First, when Jesus saw the multitudes He called them "sheep without a shepherd". He personalized them. These were real people with real faces who were really lost without Him. Second, He felt "compassion". He really cared about them because He really understood them. Third, He commanded us to pray in a certain way: "earnestly". Synonyms for earnestly are strongly, deeply, intensely, seriously and industriously. Finally, Jesus focused first on the opportunity: "the harvest is plentiful".
Putting Jesus words into practice when praying for our KGM family in India and their mission to reach the "unreached" means getting personal. Really caring enough to generate true emotion, compassion and empathy as we cry out to God for them with persistence and passion. Knowing that only God can change their situation.
Prayercast has a beautiful, moving prayer on video that can jumpstart us on our journey to adopt God's heart for His lost people in India. It combines music and stunning visuals of the Indian people and places. As we watch and pray along with an Indian pastor who knows the desperate needs of his country and its people, may our hearts be broken and stirred to a new passion and urgency.
