In three weeks the world will be focused once again on the Summer Olympics from July 27 through August 12. Approximately 12,000 sports heroes from over 200 countries will be competing in over 300 events for sports glory. Each of them will become leaders in their home countries. AIA staff and volunteers have been preparing for quite some time, but we still need one more piece for our team to be ready.
What’s the missing piece?
We need prayer warriors who will lift up each Olympian, praying for God to work in the life of each person to accomplish His plan of reconciliation for the world. James tells us that the prayer of a righteous person is “powerful and effective.” (James 5:16) When we fail to pray, we limit God’s blessing by our own weaknesses. James said, “You do not have, because you do not ask God.” (James 4:2) Just as Moses prayed in Exodus 32, YOU have an opportunity to save the lives of many by asking the Lord to draw them into a relationship with Him.
