Keeping DPM in Prayer

 

January 23rd - 29th


January 23—Thailand/Laos  

  • Pray for modern strategies in reaching Thailand and Laos with Derek’s teaching. There are exciting opportunities, but much work is needed.  Our translation of 24 of Derek’s books and booklets into Thai and Lao is only just the beginning of what the Lord would have us do.

  • Pray for many to connect to the new DPM Thai website which has 24 books and several Teaching Letters as free downloads. 


January 24—New Zealand

  • Pray for God’s wisdom and guidance in 2022 for our trustees and staff as we seek God for His direction and that He will abundantly provide all the finances we need for our outreach projects in many nations.

  • Students graduating from Faith Bible College were gifted 10 of Derek’s books. Pray that this material will be a great blessing in their walk with the Lord and in their future ministry. 


January 25—Japan
Portions from Derek’s book, Prophetic Guide to the End Times, are being placed each month in a Christian magazine. Pray that this will introduce many Christians in Japan to Derek Prince and his teachings. 
 
January 26—India

  • Pray for God’s protection over Directors Elsie and Danny, their family and staff, following a time of intense spiritual warfare.

  • Elsie and Danny just completed a seven-day residential training seminar for Tamil-speaking leaders at their home base (Trichy, Tamil Nadu). The focus was on the DPM Bible College curriculum, using Derek’s core material, including teaching on biblical foundations, the gifts of the Spirit and prophecy. Pray for good fruit to come from it as the leaders take Derek’s teaching to different states in India and introduce DPM to many for the first time. 


Praise Report – India
At the beginning of 2021, we celebrated the printing of 1.5 million of Derek’s English books here in India and over 1.6 million in Indian languages since we began in 1997. 

January 27—Sri Lanka

  • Pray that the Lord will touch the Sri Lankan President and Government leaders, just as He touched Saul, to help make their work more effective.

  • Pray for DPM representative Bishop Prince to receive permission from the Public Health Inspector to visit villages in order to hand out Bibles, Derek’s books, and humanitarian relief packs. 

  • Pray for God’s protection over Bishop Prince and his family. Thousands of new Covid-19 cases are reported each day. 

 
January 28—South Africa

  • Pastor Stemmet is now ministering in the Cape and will continue into February. Pray for protection over his travels and for provision, and for successful distribution of Derek’s books and DVDs to mainly black Afrikaans.

  • We have book projects in process in Afrikaans and other African languages. Pray for protection over those involved with the translation, editing and layout. Stienie is editing the book, Blessing or Curse: You Can Choose. Recently, she and her son were attacked at gun point, but God was faithful to deliver them. 

  • Pray all will go well in uploading the thirteen African language Foundations teachings on DVD to YouTube. This will enable many more people to access Derek’s teaching in their own language. 

  • Pray for our promotion focused on children and youth using our Proclamation Cards produced for them and Derek’s teaching that is relevant for them.


Praise Reports – South Africa

  • We were able to distribute Derek’s Afrikaans and other African language books and DVDs to over 50 small towns in the Kalahari and Cape in the past eighteen months. A retired pastor is visiting these towns with no resident pastor, ministering and distributing Bibles and Derek’s teaching.

  • We thank the Lord for a new TV station that has requested Derek’s DVDs for broadcasting.

  • We were able to print and reprint 80 book titles (most in English) this past year. Ina did all the preparation to get these books ready for the printers.

  • Numerous enquiries or prayer requests have been received because of new weekly teaching on our website. 


Testimony – South Africa
A senior lady, Helena, phoned to find out our location and was surprised to learn she lived only a few kilometers away from the office.  Recently, she visited a hospice bookshop and found Appointment in Jerusalem which she is enjoying reading. It was printed many years ago and included our phone number. She found out it was still the same! She was so excited to hear what is happening with Derek’s teaching in this region and to know how much is available. She said she can’t wait to get to our office and shop to buy more material! She shared that, some years ago, she had lung cancer and the Lord miraculously healed her. The doctors were not convinced so did more biopsies on both lungs. When discharged, she was given Derek’s book, God’s Medicine Bottle. She is still in good health today!  

January 29—Angola/Mozambique

  • We plan to print the Self-Study Bible Course in Portuguese for Angola.  We had printed 2,200 copies for Mozambique just before lockdown due to the pandemic. 

  • Twenty more Portuguese titles are ready for printing for Angola and Mozambique, DPM co-workers in Portugal are busy with the audio version of the Portuguese Teaching Letters. Pray for this additional material to be produced successfully and speedily.
