Looking for Prayer Warriors

(written by Jody)
Hello there from the Fox’s.  We hope you had a Merry Christmas and a blessed time this holiday season. 
I want to inform you of a new ministry we would like to make available to you or your church.  This ministry is a ministry of prayer.  We have learned many things about ministry over the last couple of years and one of the most important things is the importance of prayer.  So we are seeking to amp up prayer support for the Songhai people.  
Currently we are looking for 100 prayer warriors (from a combination of many churches) who will join us in prayer each day for 5 months for the Songhai people, starting from February 1st and ending on July 1st.  We fully understand that this is no small commitment, yet we desire to see God move and grow His church among the Songhai people through prayer. So we ask you to prayerfully consider joining us in prayer for the Songhai people and/or bringing this request before your church on our behalf, to see who among your church would take the challenge of impacting the Songhai people for eternity through prayer.  We know that you and your church may often be praying for us and we thank you for those prayers and desire for you to continue offering those prayers for us.  However, this request goes one step further allowing us to partner with you or your church members in deep prayer for the Songhai each day.
All we need from you is the name and contact information of the person interested in becoming a prayer warrior for the Songhai people.   If they do not have an e-mail address, a mailing address will be acceptable.
 
We are currently designing a prayer tool box for our prayer warriors, complete with names, pictures and information about many people in our villages, and the names and pictures of actual villages in which we work to help guide the prayers of these people.  This prayer toolbox will be sent to our prayer warriors before February 1st 
 
We look forward to hearing from you and are excited about partnering with many of you in prayer for the Songhai people.
