2024 March Prayer Corps
on March 1st, 2024
From the very beginning, when God said, “Let there be light,” His light has always been life, truth, hope and salvation. It is man who invited spiritual darkness into God’s pure creation by his choice to rebel against the light of God.But there is hope, for darkness cannot overcome the light (Jn 1:5). In God’s almighty and sovereign purposes, He sent a Light to shine into man’s darkness – His only...  Read More

This messianic prophecy from the Spirit of God through Isaiah occurred almost 750 years before the birth of Jesus.

The Gospel of Luke provides powerful insights into our Savior’s life of prayer. Jesus prayed for others, taught His disciples how to pray, and gave us the ultimate model for prayer.But what about the personal prayer life of Jesus? What did He pray? How did He pray? What happened when He prayed? The Gospel of Luke shows us how we can be praying disciples who are perfectly trained [matured, discipli...  Read More

Three years is a long time. Yet, due to travel complications related to the pandemic, it had been just over 3 years since World MAP had been able to conduct in-country, in-person seminars for pastors.Thankfully, we had developed “Skype-inars” and “Zoom-inars” to still teach pastors in the meantime. But as good as those were, it was still not quite the same as being together face to face. With a sm...  Read More

Ongoing corruption permeates all aspects of society, including education, politics, media and even family structures and personal identities –...  Read More

Last month, we had the joy of visiting a long-standing member of the World MAP family (and a dear friend). This saintly widow, who is 92, shared with us her recent thoughts about whether or not to continue teaching her weekly Bible study.
