Dear friend,

November always brings us to the point of thankfulness. We have much to thank God for as well as praising him for his wonderful giving nature. As you pray through this month’s guide, may a spirit of praise and thanksgiving pervade your prayers.

Together in prayer,

The Global Recordings USA Team

1  Give Thanks: “Therefore I will give thanks to You, O Lord, among the Gentiles, And sing praises to Your name.” Psalm 18:19

2  GRN Council meeting: The GRN Council meets in Thailand on November 11-22. A few African leaders are having a hard time getting their Thai visas. Pray for the Lord to undertake in all the travel including safe flights.

3  Council Wisdom: Ask for God’s direction in the discussions and in every decision. Pray for International Director, Graydon Colville, and the International Leadership Team (ILT) as they give leadership to the meetings.

4  Larry DeVilbiss: Larry will be presenting his goals and strategies to the members of the Council. Pray for good understanding and unity in all the decisions they make to move forward.

6  Thai Team: Please pray specifically for the GRN Thailand script committee and script writers, for God’s wisdom and guidance that the message and the approach will be relevant to Thai people.

8  Canadian projects: The GRN office in Canada sponsors many recording and distribution projects in East Africa and elsewhere. Pray that many more Canadian Christians will catch a vision for the GRN work and will respond with prayers and generous support.

9  5fish phone app: Australian staff member Franz Brosch has done valuable work on the iPhone version of the 5fish app. Pray this app will be a useful, reliable, and effective tool for spreading the gospel.

10  Willing workers needed: GRN Mexico needs an administrative assistant and recording partner to assist with recording projects. Pray for skilled, reliable, and willing workers who will serve joyfully.

13  The Champa people: The Champa is a small Buddhist group living in a fairly remote area of India. Buddhists are extremely resistant to the gospel. In the name of Jesus, pray that every stronghold of deception and idolatry that keeps them from hearing the gospel and embracing the truth will be broken.

14  Praying Scripture: “Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” (Galatians 6:9 NIV) May this word of encouragement be vitally active in every GRN worker.

15 40 languages in Brazil: GRN Brazil has done a thorough job of researching and identifying 40 languages in Brazil in which GRN has not yet made any gospel recordings. Pray for open doors and good strategic plans to access these tribal groups. Pray that recordings will bring truth and light to the people.

16  Joyful and generous donors: GRN is blessed to have many faithful donors who contribute joyfully and generously to the ministry. Praise God for them. Pray for wise stewardship as each GRN Center uses those resources to carry out its GRN mandate.

17  Mobilizing intercessors: The global church has the potential to deploy hundreds of millions of intercessors, each with direct access to the throne of God; each armed with spiritual weapons that have divine power to demolish strongholds. Ask God to release such an army to advance his kingdom.

18  GRN in Africa: GRN teams are active throughout Africa, diligently recording and sharing the good news where Christ is not known. Pray for godly leadership on each team, for hardworking staff, and for generous supporters. And pray for many intercessors to provide strong prayer coverings.

19  GRN Togo partnership: GRN Togo is currently producing recordings for a church planting effort in northern Togo. This will provide evangelism and discipleship materials for a people group with low literacy and few Christians. Pray that this partnership will produce the fruit of transformed lives.

20  The Wadar of India: This group is totally unreached with the gospel of Jesus Christ. A former GRN recordist tried for two years to record the good news, but he never found any suitable language helpers. Ask God for spiritual breakthroughs in this group.

21  New office for GRNUK: Kenny McKee is thankful for finding a suitable office for the work about 15 minutes from their home in Paisley, Scotland. “God knows our need before we even ask“. What a wonderful God we serve.

22  Francophone recordists: There is a growing need for French-speaking recordists in Francophone Africa to advance the GRN recording work there and increase the knowledge of Christ. Pray for the recruiting and training of several bilingual recordists.

23  Tumi the Talking Tiger: This player has helped many traumatized children in South Africa. One child being treated at a local hospital had recently witnessed her mom being brutally killed by her dad. Pray for widespread placement of these players by GRN South Africa leader, Dalene Joubert.

24  Put into practice: Several trainees completed the Brazil recordist training course in July – Gustavo and Innes from Ecuador and Thiago, Fernanda, Dionara, Karine, and Rosângela from Brazil. Pray for many opportunities to put into practice what they have learned.

25  IT Team: Pray for the USA IT team as they upgrade our computers, our software, and our storage options for all the GRN USA files and operations. This is a huge project, ongoing for a couple of months. Pray for the protection of our data and information.

26  Kevin Horan: Pray for Kevin, the head of the USA IT department, for wisdom and guidance in these changes, and for additional helpers to come alongside.

27  John Steinmetz: Pray for John and his work in Language Tracking and in Orders. John has a great heart for Muslim people and unreached groups In the North Caucasus region.
