Partner with Us in Prayer

At Leading The Way, we receive many questions from faithful partners like you who want to know how they can pray for the ministry. If you'd like to know specific ways you can pray for Leading The Way, we've created a free downloadable resource just for you.

Click below to download our free prayer bookmark, and learn how can partner with us in prayer for four things: our broadcasts, the on-the-ground follow-up of our faithful discipleship teams, our Help The Persecuted ministry, and Dr. Michael Youssef and the Leading The Way team.

Can Revival Begin with a Faithful Few?

From the desk of Dr. Michael Youssef

Throughout history, nations have been blessed by godly individuals. God blessed Egypt because of Joseph. He blessed Babylon because of Daniel. He blessed Persia because of Esther. From ancient Israel to the Great Awakenings in America and England, national repentance always precedes national revival.

Is it possible for a Christian minority to be a catalyst for national renewal? Not only is it possible -- it actually happened not long ago in Egypt, the country of my birth.

In January 2011, the Arab world was shaken by a season of uprisings called the Arab Spring. Egyptian president Mubarak was deposed and replaced by Morsi, an autocratic leader backed by the Muslim Brotherhood. Morsi granted himself unlimited power and unleashed chaos. Churches were fire-bombed. Christians were killed in the streets. The police refused to protect the Christian minority.

Across the land, an estimated 4 million Egyptian Christians held round-the-clock prayer meetings. Like the widow who besieged the judge in the parable of Luke 18, they told God, "We’re not letting You go until You save our nation!" God loves it when His children come boldly before His throne of grace -- and He answered their prayer in a dramatic way.

On June 30, 2013, protests erupted across Egypt. The BBC reported up to 33 million protesters thronging the streets. Morsi was arrested and Defense Minister al-Sisi later became president of Egypt. He has been kind toward Christians and has restored a sense of religious freedom. Although he is not a Christian, I believe his leadership is a tangible answer to prayer.

What if we followed the Egyptian example? What if we prayed around the clock, repenting of sin and asking God to bless our land? What if we asked God to draw millions to Himself? And what if He sent godly shepherds to the Supreme Court, the White House, Congress, and our state and local governments?

The options are clear: we can turn away and ignore the crumbling of our nation’s Biblical foundation -- or we can act! Will you join with me in praying for a spiritual revival on American soil? Will you partner with Leading The Way as we actively sow into the harvest field here at home?

Revival begins with a faithful few. May it begin with you and me.

Who Will Rebuild America's Foundation?

From the desk of Dr. Michael Youssef

I'm honored to call America my adopted homeland -- yet I'm grieved to see this nation crumbling from within. No attack by a foreign power could achieve the devastation America is inflicting on herself. From the marble halls of government to the broadcast towers of the media to the ivory towers of our universities, we are seeing a relentless attack on Christian faith and morality.

Within the church we see professing Christians denying the Truth of the Gospel, trivializing sin, and rejecting the authority of God's Word. The strong, protective walls of God's Truth are being dismantled brick by brick, leaving the next generation defenseless.

The solution to our crisis is in the Word of God. There we read that when Nehemiah heard that the walls of Jerusalem were destroyed, he was devastated. "I sat down and wept," he said. "For some days I mourned and fasted and prayed before the God of heaven." The waywardness of God's people broke Nehemiah's heart and drove him to his knees in prayer.

Are our hearts broken over the collapsed walls of the church? God honors obedience and answers prayer. Will we report for duty?

Let's say, "Here I am, Lord. Use me to help rebuild the walls of Your church." Then let's rise up and proclaim our faith in Christ. Let's be vibrant witnesses in our communities. And let's encourage each other to stand firm through opposition.

Here at home, Leading The Way continues to proclaim the undiluted Gospel of Jesus Christ more than 4,300 times every week over the airwaves, reaching the lost and calling believers to stand for Biblical Truth.

In addition to airing the Gospel message via television and radio, we are reaching the digital mission field. In a culture where the average American spends more than seven hours a day on the Internet and mobile devices, God has established Leading The Way as a voice of Truth on strategic digital media platforms.

But this vital evangelistic work is only possible through your partnership. Would you prayerfully consider giving a gift this month to help us proclaim Biblical Truth not just globally, but here at home?

Although our walls are crumbling, together we can fill the cracks with faith, set new bricks in the Gospel, and secure a solid foundation in His Truth.

In Christ,

July Notes from Our Inbox

Each month Leading The Way receives correspondence from all over the world. Through emails, letters, SMS, and phone calls, viewers and listeners express share how God has touched them through our programming. We hope that this month’s notes from our inbox will be an encouragement to you and an answer to your prayers for Leading The Way.

USA:

“I very much like to read and listen to all that you offer. I have witnessed more and more of God working in my life and I am grateful for having the opportunity to be able to learn from the way Michael presents his messages. God does have a plan for me and Michael has really opened my eyes to the most important message of all.”

Australia:

“I was greatly encouraged in the Lord when an occasion arose where I was resting on a seat outside a supermarket waiting for my daughter. I thought, ‘What a good opportunity to listen to Leading The Way.’ There was a young, unkempt aboriginal lad sitting nearby and as I listened he said, ‘Do you listen to Michael Youssef?’ He is not currently practicing the Christian faith, but he listens to Michael on radio. I don’t presume I might have encouraged him, but my main reason for sharing this is to say how happy I was to hear how the Word of God is going out into the aboriginal community. I praise the Lord and trust the work will bear much fruit for God’s glory.”

USA:

“Your sermon, Conquer Part 4: Heaven or Hell was amazing! What a wake-up call. Everyone needs this message desperately. This is the most important message I’ve ever heard! Thank you Dr. Youssef!”

Morocco:

“I’ve been searching for the truth for the past year and I know now that Christianity is the only true religion. I read the Bible. I know we are called to love each other and not to kill and fight. I want to become a Christian. Would you please tell me more about the Holy Spirit?”

Egypt:

“I want to know about Christianity and I have the desire to accept Christ the Lord of peace and love as my Savior.”

Indonesia:

“We have distributed Leading The Way Navigator devices to the Wana people of Indonesia. It takes 22 hours to go to the Wana village—12 hours by car, five hours by small ship, and five hours by motor bike. Most of the Wana people cannot read or write and are far from the modern world, so the Navigator has become a very effective tool in delivering the good news. Thank you for your partnership and your heart for our people in Indonesia.”
