First Thursday Prayer September 2017

Since May 2010 we have been meeting on the First Thursday of each month to pray for our
Nation, Leaders and Revival. Be sure to check out the new Pray Learn Go page on Facebook.

This Thursday, September 7th, we will be hosting our First Thursday prayer meetings at several locations (Dallas and Carrollton) which can be found on Meetup. If you’d like to participate at another location, please contact us and we would be glad to add your location to the Meetup group.

On Sunday, September 3rd, President Trump declared a National Day of Prayer for the hurricane Harvey victims. As we gather to prayer, we remember them in our prayers we also remember the National Day of Prayer that was earlier this week.

Each month we provide a suggested verse to guide your prayer time. This month we recommend the A.C.T.S. model of prayer using the following four verses which incorporates the National Day of Prayer theme verse:

Adoration

“O God, you are my God; earnestly I seek you;
    my soul thirsts for you;
my flesh faints for you,
    as in a dry and weary land where there is no water. (Psalm 63:1}”

Confession

I have not come to call the righteous but sinners to repentance. (Luke 5:32}

Thanksgiving

“Sing to the Lord, all the earth!
    Tell of his salvation from day to day.
Declare his glory among the nations,
    his marvelous works among all the peoples!
For great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised,
    and he is to be feared above all gods.
For all the gods of the peoples are worthless idols,
    but the Lord made the heavens. (1 Chronicles 16:23-26}”

Supplication

For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. (Ephesians 3:14-19}

 

In Carrollton, TX we meet at City Hall where we pray from noon to 12:30 in front of the flag poles. A few of us also meet at Quizno’s just south of City Hall at 11:30 for lunch. I hope you’ll join us. You can find the event on Facebook.

See you Thursday!

Hurricane Harvey Relief

On Friday, August 25th, Hurricane Harvey came ashore along the Texas coast as a category 4 Hurricane with a direct hit at Rockport, TX. The storm has dumped record amounts of rain across southern Texas and caused catastrophic flooding like has never been seen in the area in modern times. While Houston gets most of the focus on the media, nearly 46% of Texas residents have been impacted. Some entire towns are under water. Today the storm came ashore again and is currently making its way across Louisiana. More flooding is likely.

Members of the Bezeugen Tract Club have been impacted by this storm. At least 11 of our tract club members are in southern Texas around Houston, near Rockport and over to Beaumont. There are other tract club members when you stretch the area out to San Antonio and Austin.  More than 40 tract club members are in Louisiana. Maps of tract club members in southern Texas and in Louisiana are included here. Please keep these members of our tract club in your prayers for their safety. While we have been in touch with a number of our tract club members by phone, email and text messages we have not heard from all of them. We simply don’t know about their personal impact or needs. If you are a member of the Bezeugen Tract Club and have a need related to the hurricane please call us at 802-393-8463 (80-BEZEUGEN)

Bezeugen is located just north of Dallas. To give you an idea of how big Texas is, this devastation is nearly 350 miles from us. Here in Dallas people are rallying support, buying needed supplies and donating them. Many organizations are collecting money to route for disaster relief.

“Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.” 1 John 3:18

We at Bezeugen Ministries understand that you our Bezeugen Tract Club members and ministry partners may want to help out. At this time we do not know of any specific personal needs within our tract club membership. Rather than create “yet another fund”, we felt it would be wise to direct you to several funds that we know about. Therefore if you’d like to make a donation to disaster relief we would encourage you to prayerfully considering to one or more of the following:

  • The LCMS Texas District has a number of ways you can help including prayer, financially and serving. 100% of funds go directly to relief efforts.
  • Concordia Lutheran Church in San Antonio has designated a fund where 100% of the donations will go to disaster relief.
  • Midway Church in Pilot Point, Texas (Board member Craig Boswell’s home church) is accepting online donations. Please designate “disaster relief” in the memo field.
  • Samaritan’s Purse is on the ground in Texas providing disaster relief and has donation opportunities list on their website.
  • Soujourn Heights Church in Houston has opportunities to give and request help.
  • Prestonwood Baptist Church has prayer updates, short term trips to South Texas, opportunities to donate items and money.

There is no doubt that the relief efforts in Texas and Louisiana will be ongoing for many months. There will be opportunities to server hands on. And additional supplies and financial support will certainly be needed. Your prayers are also critical. As we hear of opportunities to serve we will provide additional updates.

God Bless,

Bezeugen Ministries Board of Directors.

First Thursday Prayer – National Day of Prayer – May 4, 2017

Since May 2010 we have been meeting on the First Thursday of each month to pray for our
Nation, Leaders and Revival. Be sure to check out the new Pray Learn Go page on Facebook.

If you’d like to participate at another location, please contact us and we would be glad to add your location to the Meetup group.

The National Day of Prayer theme this year is For Your Great Name’s Sake! Hear Us… Forgive Us…Heal Us! Taken from Daniel 9:19, which says, “O Lord, Listen! O Lord, Forgive! O Lord, Hear and Act! For Your Sake, O My God…”. As the 2017 National Day of Prayer on May 4th approaches, thousands of individuals, churches, and communities will be working to rally millions of Christian’s to once again heed this call!

Each month we provide a suggested verse to guide your prayer time. This month we recommend the A.C.T.S. model of prayer using the following four verses which incorporates the National Day of Prayer theme verse:

Adoration

This God—his way is perfect;
    the word of the Lord proves true;
    he is a shield for all those who take refuge in him. 
(Psalm 18:30)

Confession

For godly grief produces a repentance that leads to salvation without regret, whereas worldly grief produces death. (2 Corinthians 7:10)

Thanksgiving

Oh give thanks to the Lord; call upon his name;
    make known his deeds among the peoples!
Sing to him, sing praises to him;
    tell of all his wondrous works!
10 Glory in his holy name;
    let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice!
11 Seek the Lord and his strength;
    seek his presence continually!

    his miracles and the judgments he uttered,
13 O offspring of Israel his servant,
    children of Jacob, his chosen ones! (1 chronicles 16:8-13)

Supplication

16 “O Lord, according to all your righteous acts, let your anger and your wrath turn away from your city Jerusalem, your holy hill, because for our sins, and for the iniquities of our fathers, Jerusalem and your people have become a byword among all who are around us. 17 Now therefore, O our God, listen to the prayer of your servant and to his pleas for mercy, and for your own sake, O Lord,[b] make your face to shine upon your sanctuary, which is desolate. 18 O my God, incline your ear and hear. Open your eyes and see our desolations, and the city that is called by your name. For we do not present our pleas before you because of our righteousness, but because of your great mercy. 19 O Lord, hear; O Lord, forgive. O Lord, pay attention and act. Delay not, for your own sake, O my God, because your city and your people are called by your name.” (Daniel 9:16-19)

First Thursday Prayer – April 2017

Since May 2010 we have been meeting on the First Thursday of each month to pray for our
Nation, Leaders and Revival. Be sure to check out the new Pray Learn Go page on Facebook.

This Thursday, April 6th, we will be hosting our First Thursday prayer meetings at several locations (Dallas and Carrollton) which can be found on Meetup. If you’d like to participate at another location, please contact us and we would be glad to add your location to the Meetup group.

Each month we provide a suggested verse to guide your prayer time. This month we recommend the A.C.T.S. model of prayer using the following four verses:

Adoration

The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my Savior,
    my God, my rock in whom I take refuge,
        my shield, and the strength of my salvation,
            my stronghold. (Psalm 18:2)

Confession

The Lord isn’t slow to do what he promised, as some people think. Rather, he is patient for your sake. He doesn’t want to destroy anyone but wants all people to have an opportunity to turn to him and change the way they think and act. (2 Peter 3:9)

Thanksgiving

Through Jesus we should always bring God a sacrifice of praise, that is, words that acknowledge him. (Hebrews 13:15)

Supplication

14 This is the reason I kneel in the presence of the Father 15 from whom all the family in heaven and on earth receives its name. 16 I’m asking God to give you a gift from the wealth of his glory. I pray that he would give you inner strength and power through his Spirit. 17 Then Christ will live in you through faith. I also pray that love may be the ground into which you sink your roots and on which you have your foundation. 18 This way, with all of God’s people you will be able to understand how wide, long, high, and deep his love is. 19 You will know Christ’s love, which goes far beyond any knowledge. I am praying this so that you may be completely filled with God.

20 Glory belongs to God, whose power is at work in us. By this power he can do infinitely more than we can ask or imagine. 21 Glory belongs to God in the church and in Christ Jesus for all time and eternity! Amen.(Ephesians 3:14-21)

Let’s use this Thursday as a call to repentance for our nation. The National Day of Prayer is two months away. Why not take a moment now to find a location near your or register to host your own National Day of Prayer. We have started to register our monthly events on their website as well!

2016 State Fair of Texas Outreach report

This was the sixth year for Bezeugen Ministries to participate in the outreach at the State Fair of Texas. We were again able to partner with Gospel for Asia who helped us staff the booth with students from their School of Discipleship. During the day we not only share the Gospel one on one, we also hand out thousands of Gospel tracts. We often see people walk off down Nimitz Blvd reading the tracts so we know people are receiving the Gospel even if they did not stop to listen for a one on one conversation.

I’ve believe we handed out around 10,000! Gospel tracts. There was at least one salvation! Praise God! I personally witnessed to several who took the Gospel of John and copied of my Truth May Impact Your Opinion book. I have a picture from about 2PM looking North on Nimitz BLvd. It’s wall to wall people. On one hand as I remember the booth I think of all the faces and thousands of tracts that were put into peoples hands. I remember seeing tracts on the ground up and down the street so I imagine people read them, then discarded them. Some were torn up, so they may have had a troubling or angry response. Yet there were not 10,000 tracts on the ground, so some must have kept them! On the other hand I can recall specific faces of a Jew, a JW and an atheist that I talked to. I can remember names like a kid named Drake who despite has grandfather being a pastor told me “I wouldn’t tell him this but I believe in science”. After a 10 minute conversation he agreed science and the Bible are not necessarily incompatible and took a Gospel of John with him. And I remember the face of a 12 year old girl who I taught the ten commandments to. At one point I was talking from the booth to the back to get some more tracts when I heard a voice say “wow, they handed me a gospel tract.” When I looked up three young twenties friends were there asking what we were doing. I told them. The guy asked, “do you pray with people?” I said sure we will. He had injured his neck and asked for prayer. Then I was telling them about Bezeugen and some outreaches that we do. But I told him I might not be able to do some outreaches in the next couple months because I am having knee surgery this week. He asked if they could pray for me and they did. He got down on his knees and laid his hands on my knees. Then there was what appeared to be a couple who came. He was a solid believer. She was very shaken by what we were discussing. But I got to share the Gospel with her and she listened intently. She ultimately took a copy of my booklet. The guy told me that she is his little sister (probably 30 years old) and was devastated by the tragic death of their brother. He also told me how he nearly lost his leg in Afghanistan but was miraculously saved and now can minister to his sister!

Each year when we do this outreach we partner with the Gospel for Asia School of Discipleship. My passion is to teach others to share the Gospel. And this is a great opportunity to equip and encourage these students. While I was talking to one of the students she was telling me it was her first time away from home and how her mom would love to see what she was doing. So while she was in a conversation with someone, I snapped a picture on my phone. Afterwards I showed it to her and we texted it to her mom! The student testimonials about the outreach below truly inspire me.

  • When some of my fellow students and I arrived for our turn to help out at the booth, one of the workers approached us with an optical illusion Gospel tract. I was super encouraged by this! I was able to see how he brought up the topic, and how confident he was in what he was talking about. Once he learned that we were there to help out, he gave us good advice on how to use the Gospel tracts while witnessing. During my time at the booth, I was able to hand out several stacks of Gospel tracts to people who were just passing by, as well as share the complete Gospel with several different people. Although not everyone responded well, I know that His Word will not return void! Even though no one made a decision to follow Christ right then, I know that many heard the truth. I’m so thankful that I was able to be a part in helping spread the Good News to the lost! – Kristina, Student at Gospel for Asia

  • Before our group handed out tracts and we were just walking around the fair I felt a burden for 3 people that I saw with tattoos and piecings like me even a guy sitting on a skateboard that had no legs! And the Lord brought all 3 of them to me as we handed out tracts! 2 of them took them and the one walked on by. But God did it! Praise Him! – Benjamin – Student at Gospel for Asia

  • This is the second year that I had the pleasure of being part of this outreach. I have seen God moving so much especially in the people that He prompted to stop at the stand and also in my life. I spoke to one gentleman who was hanging on every word spoken by Gary and myself about Christ. You could see that he was crying out to Jesus and the hope that He gives. Praise the Lord for directing our conversation as we were able to share something that was exactly what this guy needed to hear given his current situation. We were also able to pray for Him as a family of Christ after he left the booth and ask our Heavenly Father to keep working in his life. Last year I had the opportunity to give out countless Gospel tracts, I was very nervous about speaking to people. The Lord over the last 12 months has given me more boldness and confidence to proclaim the Gospel and stand firm in the reason for my hope in Jesus Christ – whoop whoop for the Holy Spirit! – Leanne – Student at Gospel for Asia

  • Leanne and I had a good conversation with Courtney, Derek, and McKenzie. They were each in different places. Courtney said “I don’t know anything about God.” Derek said he used to go to church, but now. McKenzie said she goes to church, but admitted God was not number one in her life. They were so open, so ready to receive. We shared the truth that we have a creator, all of this came from somewhere. We have all broekn the law and need a savior, which is why Jesus came and died on the cross to pay our debt. We read from John 1:14 “And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.” Courtney had no Bible and accepted a Gospel of John. Each one had a prayer request, we linked hands and prayed together. I’m believing the Lord, His word does not return void. Holy Spirit, we invite you to convict, to confirm and to comfort each of these precious young people. Reveal the truth to them, in Jesus’ name. – Shawn, Staff at Gospel for Asia

  • During my shift at the fair, I had about 5-7 good conversations with people, including one right off the bat with a member of the LDS church. Later on, I talked to two teenage girls, Gloria and Hannah. Hannah was a pastor’s kid but called herself an athiest. Gloria believed she was getting to Heaven by good works. So I brought them through the 10 Commandments and kept emphasizing just how much Jesus loves them, even though He’s always known that they, along with the rest of the world, would turn their backs on Him. I told them there’s nothing they’ve ever said, thought or done, or ever will do, that can seperate them from the love of Christ. Pretty soon both of them were tearing up. I explained to them how they don’t have to wonder about where they’ll spend eternity, that instead they can *know* where they’ll spend eternity. I asked them if it all made sense and if they saw their need to make a choice. They agreed and I prayed for them, and then told them to talk with the Lord on their own as soon as possible. Both of them were smiling as they left. I left them with my email; so who knows, maybe I’ll hear from them again. – Kendra – Student at Gospel for Asia

  • I was so excited to be able to hand out tracts the entire time I was at the fair and really just got a heart for each person that passed by. Knowing that these are seeds that God can use – it was so amazing. There was this one guy that really stood out to me because he looked a lot like one of my friends – but he was walking the opposite – and I prayed that he would hear about Jesus somehow (since I couldn’t go talk with him) – after an hour went by – the same guy came by the booth and got a Gospel tract – the Lord answered my prayer. I don’t know what that tract is going to do in his life – but I have been praying for him a lot – God can do mighty things. – Emily, Student at Gospel for Asia

  • First let me just say it was an amazing experience! It’s such an honor to serve the Lord in this way. I have personally enjoyed learning to share about the Lord an being used to spread the good news of the Gospel. When we first started handing out tracts at the fair like every other time I have evangelized, I was a bit nervous and timid. But once I got going time just few by and I had been working for about two hours! As I was handing out tracks I would run out of the ones in my hand and would go back to the booth to get more. The theme was “The million-dollar question” which I knew how to present if someone were to ask, of course the Holly spirit is the one who really gives me the words to say. So when I went to get another handful it was a different sort of tract which asked a question about hell. I didn’t really make the time to read it because my goal was to just to hand out the tracts. I guess my mind set was little off and caught up in just the busyness of what we were doing. But God wasn’t ready to let that stop Him from using me. As I was passing these “different” tracts out (the ones I hadn’t read) an Asian lady stopped to talk to me. She asked “what does it mean” showing me the tract I had handed her. It was at this moment I can say the Holy spirit interceded on my behalf (as the Bible says he does in Romans 8:26 ). He gave me the words. Since I knew the card obviously talked about hell I asked if she believed in hell and also if she believed in heaven to both of which she said yes. Then I told her about heaven being where God lives a perfect place where no sin can be. God is good and perfect. I talked about how only God is perfect and we are not and are called sinners. I then asked if she considered herself a good person one who doesn’t sin, to which is replied “yes”. I went through three of the ten commandments and it wasn’t till the third one that she agreed that she has broken that commandment which was a sin. Then I started explaining the salvation story starting with sin. It amazed me how intently she was listening and seemed really she wanted to know the answers to her question. About this time her friends or family came and said she had to leave, then she was gone. I was stunned for little bit that the Lord had used me to plant a seed and that the Holy spirt had interceded for me as He has promised! I thanked the Lord He had used me, flaws and all to plant that seed. I Kept on passing out tracts the rest of the time and knew in my heart no matter how nervous I am or think that I am not quipped, the Holy spirit has already made me equipped to “go forth and preach the Good New” – Mark 16:15. Praise the Lord! He is working through evangelism to help me trust in Him more and let him use me just the way I am! – Soni, Student at Gospel for Asia

  • This has been my 4th or 5th year out sharing the Gospel at the booth with GFA’s School of Discipleship and y’all. I am so thankful for Bezeugen ministry and the Full Gospel Business Fellowship allowing us to participate each year. Praise the Lord for all of them! I love getting to see the students excitement as they get to share truth with people. All of them went away from the fair encouraged in the Lord and what He did through them. They were talking about all the conversations they had on the ride home. One of the young ladies in my group had the biggest smile on her face when she told me this is the first time she has ever actively shared the Gospel and that the Lord helped her to talk with many people. She didn’t seem to want to stop once she started. I am thankful for the tools that we are equipped with at the booth. The million dollar question is a great engaging way to have conversations with people about what really matters. I had some conversations with people who didn’t know where they will spend eternity and some that weren’t sure. I got to share how they could know for sure by placing their trust in the finished work of Christ. One lady I spoke with who was a believer seemed encouraged to use her life to bring others with us to the great banquet! Another lady I spoke with wanted to know what the booth was about because she was an eye doctor, so I got to talk with her about the value of her soul and about her eternal future. It has for sure been one of my favorite days of the year! – Andy, Staff at Gospel for Asia
  • Saturday, October 22nd, our family had the privilege for the first time of helping at the FGBF booth. I am so grateful for this “Light source” in the midst of a huge throng of needy people. A young single mother by the name of Amber came to the booth with many questions about how to deal with current events in her life. After Scott and I spoke with her for awhile, she showed evidence of a grasp of Scripture. She shared with us her previous profession of faith in Christ. Recent church and family situations had brought confusion and many questions to her mind. It certainly appeared to be a “divine appointment” as we pointed her to Christ and His Word, giving many verses to meet her fears, questions, pain, and worry. As she heard this truth, we could see her countenance change. We prayed God’s blessing and protection around her. Several members of our family were able to pass out tracks to the folks passing by. I enjoyed watching them read and consider the message on the back as they continued walking. The crowds later in the day increased dramatically. My daughter, Faith, really enjoys passing out tracks. Her favorite is the one with the thermometer on the front, asking “On a scale of 1 to 10, how do you measure up?” We are grateful for the freedom we still have to give out the Gospel, and look forward to helping again next year, as the Lord wills. – Keith, member of Rockwall Bible Church

Gospel Conversations

When sharing the Gospel try to make it a conversation. We like to find out what the person believes and then take the conversation in one of two directions based on what they say as they are talking. This video explains more:

You can get read The Truth May Impact Your Opinion booklet online and also view the bookmark with outline as well.

Now you may be wondering, what does it really look like to put this into practice. So, I’ve recorded a separate video that I called “West End Uncut” with 31 minutes of raw footage practicing what I described in the video above.  As you watch at roughly the 5:30 mark I start a long conversation with a man. And at the 26:40 mark I begin a conversation with several youth after handing them our new Million Dollar Bill tract. I apologize for the video quality as I am trying to learn how to position my phone in my pocket to record these. And the recording ends midway through the last conversation.

To receive 30 FREE Gospel tracts per month, enroll in the Bezeugen Tract Club.

Since May 2010 we have been meeting on the First Thursday of each month to pray for our
Nation, Leaders and Revival. Be sure to check out the new Pray Learn Go page on Facebook.

This Thursday, March 2nd, we will be hosting our First Thursday prayer meetings at several locations (Dallas and Carrollton) which can be found on Meetup. If you’d like to participate at another location, please contact us and we would be glad to add your location to the Meetup group.

Each month we provide a suggested verse to guide your prayer time. This month we recommend the A.C.T.S. model of prayer using the following four verses:

Adoration

20 You shall fear the Lord your God. You shall serve him and hold fast to him, and by his name you shall swear. 21 He is your praise. He is your God, who has done for you these great and terrifying things that your eyes have seen. (Deuteronomy 10:20-21)

Confession

10 But David’s heart struck him after he had numbered the people. And David said to the Lord, “I have sinned greatly in what I have done. But now, O Lord, please take away the iniquity of your servant, for I have done very foolishly.” (2 Samuel 24:10)

Thanksgiving

the God who gave me vengeance
    and brought down peoples under me,
49 who brought me out from my enemies;
    you exalted me above those who rose against me;
    you delivered me from men of violence.

50 “For this I will praise you, O Lord, among the nations,
    and sing praises to your name. (2 Samuel 22:48-50)

Supplication

10 Jabez called upon the God of Israel, saying, “Oh that you would bless me and enlarge my border, and that your hand might be with me, and that you would keep me from harm[a] so that it might not bring me pain!” And God granted what he asked. (1 Chronicles 4:10)

Let’s use this Thursday as a call to repentance for our nation. The National Day of Prayer is two months away. Why not take a moment now to find a location near your or register to host your own National Day of Prayer. We have started to register our monthly events on their website as well!

In Carrollton, TX we meet at 11:30 at the Quizno’s just south of city hall at 11:30 for lunch. Then at noon we head over to City Hall where we pray from noon to 12:30 in front of the flag poles. I hope you’ll join us. You can find the event on Facebook.

See you Thursday!
