Welcome to our new Pastor's Prayer Partners

Welcome to those who recently signed up for our new Pastor’s Prayer Partners!. You are a part of what I believe to be the most important yet unseen ministry in our church. When we started our Prayer Partners Ministry 17 years ago we were a small church meeting in the trailer on the East end of our property. I believe that was the foundation of what God has done during our subsequent years here at Oasis Church. I will never forget that with just a few hundred people attending at the time, we assembled a Prayer Team. And it seemed that at that very same time our church took off and began to see God’s blessings in a way we can only shake our heads over and know it could only have been from Him.

Sooooooooo, you have decided to join a team of men and women who have been the cornerstone of Oasis Ministry. Please know how appreciative and honored I am that you have chosen to be my prayer partners.

I will put on hold my ‘normal’ weekly prayer devotion in this week’s letter to give you a few details on what you will need to know.


How will we communicate?

* You will receive a weekly email from me with some prayer thoughts along with a Prayer Digest that lists the names of those we are praying for. Those names come from our congregation through the web or Connect Cards. Please take a set time each day to pray for some of those on the list. By the end of the week hopefully you have prayed for all of them. Please also pray for our church ministry areas, Pastors, lay volunteers and the various aspects of our ministry.

Am I required to physically come to church and pray?

* Yes, once a month on Sunday morning at 8:30 a.m., you will be asked to come in and pray with myself, our worship team and over the chairs in our auditorium. Your name will be listed at the bottom of my Prayer Letter on the week you are assigned to come just as I am doing below for this weekend. **If you attend NOMI Campus, see Pastor Ben on your weekend and he will give you directions for NOMI.

What if I cannot come on the Sunday I am assigned to?

* If for any reason you can't pray on the Sunday you are listed please come one of the other Sundays of the month. You are always welcome. As a matter of fact, if you want to come and pray more than one Sunday morning a month, do so. There is always room for anyone coming to pray!

What do I do when I come?

* First, you pray over the rows of auditorium chairs at 8:30 a.m. Every chair represents each person coming to worship. Then, at 8:40 a.m. you will come into the green room on the north side of the stage. There you will pray with our worship and pastoral team. You will not be asked to pray publicly unless you want to. There will be a time you and the other Prayer Partners will take a few minutes prior to the 9:00 a.m. service to pray over our service. All of this takes less than 30 minutes on your Sunday.

How do I get assigned to a week?

* If we list you on a certain Sunday of the month, that will be your regular Sunday each weekend. We will assign different people for weekend #1 through #4. On weekend #5 we have no one assigned to it, but anyone is welcomed to come. There are only a few months in the year where we have a 5th Sunday.

What if I don’t feel comfortable being on the spotlight?

* Don't be intimidated. You will not be put on the spot. Also understand no one is a "Professional" Prayer Partner. We just simply pray for Oasis Church and the services that Sunday.

How do I let you know if I can not make it the weekend I’m assigned?

* Please make every effort you can to be with us on your Sunday. I believe this is the secret weapon of God's power on our service each Sunday. If for any reason you cannot pray on the week assigned please email us and let us know what weekend of the month would be best for you to come consistently.

Do I have to change my service from now on?

* You may be part of the 9 a.m. service that weekend or leave after you pray at 9 a.m. and go home, and come back to attend your regular service. It's your choice.

I hope this helps to clarify the simple way we pray. God bless you and thanks again for being my Prayer Partner!

Subject: Request to start Church Ministries
Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
Greetings in the matchless name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. May the peace of God’s power be upon us always and may we all grow in spirit and faith every day. My Name is Pastor Shyamal Chandra Sarker and I serve the church at Lamb in the North of Bangladesh, the Muslim country to the East of our friend and neighbour India .From a Hindu background – I came to know the Lord Jesus as an adult convert in 1992 and I took Holy Orders in 1995. I have worked in many villages. Bangladesh is home to people of many faiths. I have worked in many cities and places. My passion is to lead people to Christ in my life. Lot of my neighbour’s and relative, s of Hindu they are going to hell, They are die to unknown Jesus Christ.
A team of fellow Christians and I want to multiply our gospel work in this remote northern area Pray daily for church ministry, because in our country 97% of the people do not know Jesus. They are Muslims, and Hindus, and animists. They are going to hell without salvation. I think the Internet has many requests for money. Please give us prayers, and support. Please suggest an organisation that will check our plans. If such an organisation can then tell people “Pastor Shyamal and his friends are okay”, then people will trust the organisation.
In God’s time, we have faith that support will come, and we shall be fully accountable.
Our plan, God willing:
1.We are friends who are passionate to preach the word of God
2. The foundation of our Church will be evangelism, inviting new friends to worship and convincing them by the reality of the Bible to follow Christ.
3. Our goal will be baptisms – discipleship – spiritual growth.
4. We will be conducting house meetings (Devotionals) during the week and then Sunday worship.
5. Every day, evangelism.
6. Every day, Bible teaching.
7. A Sunday school and a pre school for children
Please help us take this leap of faith, as I said Please give support but with prayer and advice. We need for donor who will support us every site .In our country lots of field and opportunity for preaching the gospel .May after 10 years we will no get this chance. We will be very grateful to you and your fellow church members for guidance. If you support us I will send you our project proposal for church ministry. I will share details of your counselling and mentorship. Lord, help us remain open to your quiet voice! Thanks and blessings.
