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. Click here 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.

In his words: Ramesh Richard November update | November 22, 2019

Dear praying friends,

Not that you need reminding, but five-sixths of 2019 is over as I pen this note on the first day of the month. So much happens each month. I want to be as profitable to the Master as I possibly can and as productive in the ministry as I should, especially in light of the tornado which recently struck Dallas. Friends lost property, but no lives were lost. I tweeted 13 Tornado Takeaways for myself. We can email them to you upon request.

A greater sense of responsibility and urgency impels all of us still alive. Did you receive “When Christian Leaders Defect,” an article about prominent leaders defecting from the Faith? Several friends have written about how much it strengthened them.

I also got to write a technical response to a “theory of homiletics.” Preachers must find what the Divine/Author says and does IN a biblical text to propose what they are proposing to the original audience and to us. This paper is not for the public…yet.

Weekend visits to the far ends of the U.S.A. (New York and Washington) broke up the intensity of the month, only to be followed by recording evangelistic and pastoral training short videos. Feel free to visit LifeRocks.org and PastorReach.org to watch what your prayer distributes worldwide.

I could also add here the hosting of Global Proclamation Academies in South East Asia and Democratic Republic of Congo (South), two very difficult environments, but God provided protection.

The month climaxed with RREACH’s annual board retreat as we considered strategic decisions under the Lordship of God’s Christ and the leadership of the Holy Spirit. I need Trinitarian foresight for our forethought. What a fine and godly board we have! So thank you so very much for your prayer. Pray for our Inspirational Challenge to be reached, even exceeded, by the December 3 deadline.
