“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 2018. We will need to raise appx. $30,000.00 for the year.
Church Planting & Revitalization

Disciples with professional experience in medicine, education, law enforcement, law, social services, or business are encouraged to contact us for more information about joining this effort. Pray for our successful recruitment and training of these team members. These vocational rural missionaries will join the 4th & College congregation in its effort to evangelize not only Cordell, but all of Washita County.

- 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.
