Our Prayer for You... That you would be a man or woman of Issachar More than 3,000 years ago, God raised up a cadre of 200 men and their families, from the tribe of Issachar, to give leadership to His people because they “Understood the times and knew what Israel should do.” As we meet together, we want to look in the Scriptures at what God has asked us to do as it relates to the fulfillment of His Great Commission. Our prayer is that by the time you leave this afternoon: 1. You will know, from Scripture, what God’s direction is for the Global Church. 2. You will know the task remaining in each Element of the Great Commission. 3.You will commit to use your influence, expertise,
and designated giving, to make a difference.
