Prayers for Chattanooga

Last week, 24-year-old Mohammad Youssuf Abdulazeez shot and killed five servicemen outside a military recruiting office in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Officials are currently investigating the shooting as an act of domestic terrorism.

Please pray for:

  • The families of the victimsas they mourn the loss of their loved ones.
  • Government officials to acknowledge the reality of Islamic terrorism and respond with a strategy to address its growing influence.
  • Leading The Way's Arabic broadcasts and personal follow-up to impact both nominal and radical Muslims here at home on the American mission field.
  • Disillusioned Muslims to look to the cross and discover the hope, love, and Truth of Christ.
  • God to transform radical Muslims into Apostle Pauls for Jesus.

Prayers of Thanks and Praise for 2014

For Leading The Way, 2014 was a year of expansion. As we begin a New Year, let's praise God for all He did in 2014 and thank Him for what He will do in 2015:

In 2014, Leading The Way launched THE KINGDOM SAT, our 24/7 satellite channel, in Indonesia, the largest Muslim nation. Through a new partnership with a local Indonesian channel, we are able to broadcast our programs in the Indonesian language and follow up with viewers. We have already heard testimonies of how God is using this channel to draw viewers to Christ.

In 2014, Leading The Way began broadcasting in Sinhala, the language of Sri Lanka, and Japanese. Leading The Way now broadcasts in 24 languages, the most recent of which are Asian languages. Pray for God to use these dual-language programs to reach this region of the world and to open more doors to share the Word of God in Asia.

In 2014, our Help The Persecuted ministry grew exponentially. As the Syrian civil war led to one of the largest refugee crises in history and as the Islamic State advanced into Iraq, God grew our Help The Persecuted team and opened doors for Leading The Way to provide direct support to persecuted Christians in the region.

In 2014, we saw a huge advancement in our One Million Pocket Missionaries project after receiving a generous donation, allowing us to distribute 100,000 Navigator solar-powered audio devices with the Bible and Dr. Youssef's messages over the next 20 months. We are excited about this opportunity to reach hundreds of thousands more people with the Good News.

In 2014, we began broadcasting our Arabic-English radio programs in Boston, Massachusetts. These broadcasts, which now air in Boston, Richmond, and Detroit, enable us to reach some of the largest Arabic-speaking populations in America.

With your support, we were able to end the year strong and exceed our goal for the $500,000 Gift Challenge that took place in December. Thank you for your prayers and partnership in 2014 and your ongoing support in 2015!

To learn more about Leading The Way's ministry work in 2014, read our FY14 Annual Report.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank You for these new opportunities to share Your Word around the world. Guide the Leading The Way team as they produce new programs, follow up with listeners and viewers, and help the persecuted around the world. May each listener and viewer receive Your Truth and know Your love. We submit all these plans to You and commit ourselves fully to Your work in 2015, that You may be glorified. We pray in the name of Jesus. Amen.

"I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus" (Philippians 1:3-6).

National Day of Prayer

On the National Day of Prayer, I would like to share something I wrote during our God Save America campaign. I pray it is an encouragement to you both today and into the future as you pray for our nation.

There are hurting people all around us who are constantly searching for fulfillment and satisfaction. They are firmly convinced that the next relationship, financial windfall or personal achievement will provide the elusive fulfillment and satisfaction they are seeking.

God Save AmericaIf you listen to the media today, you would think this is a new phenomenon that has happened as a result of our fast-moving technological society. Not true. The desperation for fulfillment is as old as the Garden of Eden.

Hurting people are living next door to us. They are in the office down the hall. They are at the gym. They are in our schools and universities. On the outside, they may look like they have it together and are having a great time, but deep down they have an inner longing for fulfillment and the peace of mind that only Jesus can offer.

Jesus reaches out to these people through us. As the church, we are His body and we should be actively sharing the hope we have in Christ with those He has entrusted to us. Not only has He given us the honor of sharing with those next door, He has blessed us abundantly in this country to reach those around the world—some who have never heard the name of Jesus Christ.

The answer to our national crisis and the crises we see around the world is not political. It is spiritual. People need the Savior and they need to hear about Him from His people. When hearts are changed, nations will follow.

I would like you to continue to pray with me that our churches will be lights for Christ to their communities and the nations. We have been entrusted with a great treasure and we must share it.

Thank you for continuing to pray with me for God to save America. You are truly a blessing to many.

In Him,

Michael Youssef, Ph.D.

Praying for Our Partners in Boston

As you know, Leading The Way broadcasts in many cities around our nation.  One such city is Boston – where Dr. Youssef is heard each afternoon at 5:30 on WEZE – The Word. 

Following yesterday’s terrorist attacks at the Boston Marathon, we reached out to our friends at the station and we are praising God to hear all of the staff of WEZE and their families are safe, but obviously quite shaken.  We asked Pat Ryan, the station manager at WEZE, to share specifically how Leading The Way can pray for Boston and the people most directly impacted. She shared the following:

For our staff, please pray for the strength and courage to get through this trauma, so we may return to the comfort level we had prior to this terror attack.  Although the entire staff and our families are okay, some people feel a sense of alarm, at a heightened level, that we hope will be alleviated by pressing in on our good Lord. 

For the city of Boston, please pray that we as Americans and Bostonians can rise back up with our courage and strength. Pray we will not allow the terrorists to get their way. We must go on and continue the American way of FREEDOM in our lives. Ask God, in His infinite wisdom, to take this evil and make it into something good by winning souls to Christ!

Will you join with us in praying for Pat, her team and their families as they share the Truth of Christ in Boston and for the people of Boston as they rise up in the face of this tragedy?  We also ask you to pray for Leading The Way’s programs to be a light to the people of Boston during these dark days.
