SPRING PRAYER CALENDER~
I created a spring calender with suggestions of prayer topics. My suggestion is that you pray for a different topic, each week. Ask for guidance from the Holy Spirit on which topics to pray for. If the Holy Spirit leads you to pray for different topics; than what I have suggested, than of course, follow the lead of the Holy Spirit. Thank you and God Bless You, Your sister in Christ, Donna

Facebook Evangelism Reaches Thousands
Thousands in the Middle East are becoming "friends" on Facebook because of a youth TV program Open Doors helped develop. The interactive program, Connect with Me, follows a group of young people and addresses subjects that teenagers and young adults across the Middle East can identify with, such as fear, forgiveness and unemployment.
Bible delivery, Christian community development and Prayer and Advocacy programs help persecuted believers worldwide. "I can read the Bible now when I need God's comfort," says Perveen, one of 80,000 illiterate Christians who has learned to read through an Open Doors Bible-based literacy program in Pakistan. Perveen and others share their stories of hope.
As a brother or sister to North Korean Christians please join in solidarity by fasting and praying on April 15. Also this month, from April 23-29, global partners will join together in prayer during North Korea Freedom Week. When you join you will receive free information on how to participate in both events.
North Korea Freedom Week April 23-29
Despite the nation's poor economy, human rights abuses, and last week's failed rocket launch, North Korea continues to want to prove to the world that it is a "strong and prosperous nation." Please pray fervently for North Korea during North Korea Freedom Week.
Week of Prayer Vital During North Korea Freedom Week: As North Korea celebrated the Day of the Sun (the 100th Anniversary of the birth of Kim II Sung) Open Doors was calling for prayers, asking Christians to celebrate a Day of the Son through constant intercession for persecuted believers. North Korea is the worst nation in the world as far as persecution of Christians. In fact, they've been on the Open Doors World Watch List for ten years in a row and for good reason," says Jerry Dykstra of Open Doors. With all this in mind, Open Doors is making the annual North Korea Freedom Week a week of prayer. From April 23 to 29, Open Doors is asking believers to pray with them for the many needs in North Korea--from Christians' safety to leaders' salvation. You may sign up anytime this week, April 23-29, to receive pray alerts for North Korea. Sign up here to join in prayer for North Korea. Read more>>
The National Day of Prayer is a vital part of our heritage. Since the first call to prayer in 1775, when the Continental Congress asked the colonies to pray for wisdom in forming a nation, the call to prayer has continued through our history. Join your church or a community group today to pray for America and its leadership in government, military, media, business, education, church and family (I Timothy 2:1-6).
