Weekly Godward

Join Dr. Richard and friends from around the world at the beginning of each week to pray for our world. Every Sunday at 8:30 p.m. US Central (Daylight) Time, we unite in a fast and precious 45 minutes of intercession over the pandemic and other ministry matters. Write to  to receive details necessary to join the call. Or, watch the call live on this page. 

Only God

RREACH’s first operational value is “Only God.” One way we recognize and live in our dependence on Him is by beginning, covering and ending every aspect of ministry in prayer, with thanksgiving. As the Lord continues to open doors for Dr. Richard and his ministry, we are even more aware of the need for prayer.

We post regular prayer updates on this page, including a daily prayer calendar at the beginning of each month. Please take a moment to visit and look over recent posts of requests and God’s responses.

Birthday Blessings | May 9, 2021

Dear Praying Friend,

We ask for blessings and continued fruitfulness in the Lord Jesus as Dr. Richard celebrates his birthday. Join us in thanking God for Dr. Richard’s life and ministry. This “Vagabondslave” began preaching during his mid-teens with church youth groups in the open markets of South India. In the decades since then, God has condescended to use him in many ways—most recently to evangelize opinion leaders and train pastoral leaders around the globe. Please pray that the Lord would sustain Dr. Richard, protect him and his family, and provide for continued ministry fruitfulness.
