“And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.” – Ephesians 6:18
“Moreover, as for me, far be it from me that I should sin against the Lord by ceasing to pray for you . . .” – I Samuel 12:23a
If we fail to pray, we entirely fail. Prayer is the expression of our faith in God’s power rather than our own. It is our confession of complete and absolute reliance on God for all things. R.A.M. exists because of prayers offered in faith and we continue to grow and reach more and more people with the love of Christ because we refuse to stop praying. Will you join us in this “greater work” of God and pray with us over the following:
Financial Support and Ministry Partnerships
- Pray for our fund-raising efforts for 2017. We will need to raise appx. $60,000.00 for the year.
Summer Missions & Intensive Ministry Training Experience
- Pray for our student team’s physical safety and spiritual growth. Pray for their unity as a team and that they are filled with God’s Spirit to express His grace and truth in word and action. Pray for the communities of Cordell & Carnegie, OK that God will lead our team members to those who will be open to the grace & truth of Jesus. Pray for our team members to be bold in their love for the lost and searching.
Van drivers for Cordell’s 2017 Encounter
- We need drivers for 3 of the 5 days remaining during 4th & College’s Encounter outreach in Cordell, June 5th – 9th.
- RAM is targeting Washita County in western OK for its first long-term mission effort. We have begun to recruit 4-6 disciples willing to devote 3-5 years to working with the church at 4th & College in Cordell, OK, County Seat for Washita County. Pray for our successful recruitment and training of these team members by 2017.
Women’s County Jail Ministry
- Pray for the amazing women volunteers who graciously give of their time, energy and resources to minister to the incarcerated women of Washita County. Pray for their safety, for wisdom, and to be filled with the Spirit as they share the word of God and His love with these women.
- Pray for the incarcerated women in OK, and especially in Washita County. Pray for their salvation; that their hearts will be open to the gospel and that Satan will be prevented from interfering with their turning to God. Pray that God will provide them relationships with mature Christian women who will continue to mentor and guide them into a deep and resilient faith.
- Pray for the expansion of RAM’s ministry in the county jails until Oklahoma has a women’s outreach ministry led by women in every rural county jail in the state.
- Pray for RAM’s continued strong and trusted relationship with the courts in Washita County.
- For the 8 students the Lord has called to join our mission efforts for this summer: Bailey Woodfin, Anna Rossiter, Christine Poisson, Scotty Weaver, Janessa Johnson, Jessica Howell, Sam Bogan, & Isabella Preciado. We are so grateful for each of these students and the work they are going to accomplish for God’s glory in Washita County.
- For the host families in Cordell & Carnegie, OK who provided a home away from home for our students while on mission this summer. You were outstanding in your hospitality!
- For our two ministry interns who will be serving with the 4th & College church in Cordell. They are Scotty Weaver & Janessa Johnson.
