In a Kingdom move to increase its reach and relationship with pastors, prayer leaders, and churches, as well as broaden the scope of prayer beyond a single day, the National Day of Prayer Task Force (NDOP) announces it has accepted a gift of the resource division of Harvest Prayer Ministries.
The acquisition includes PrayerShop Publishing, Prayer Connect magazine, and the Church Prayer Leaders Network (CPLN) and all the contacts, resources, inventory, content, and websites associated with these ministries.
“We are thrilled with this opportunity to see the ministry of the National Day of Prayer Task Force expanded in every way,” says Dr. Ronnie Floyd, NDOP president. “Our vision is to develop leaders, serve churches and denominations, and do all we can to create resources that will equip and help mobilize people to pray.”
The NDOP Task Force plans to use the CPLN to equip its nearly 14,000 volunteers. Prayer Connect magazine provides the NDOP with a resource that can be the voice of the prayer movement in the United States. PrayerShop Publishing will produce and publish books and prayer guides. “As we see the desperate need in our nation for revival and spiritual awakening,” explains David Butts, president of Harvest Prayer Ministries, “we as little individual ministries have got to stop protecting our own turfs and do the Kingdom thing. We believe this strong discipleship-oriented resource division that reaches churches, pastors, and prayer leaders can both bless the NDOP by expanding its reach and can explode with broader ministry because of the larger reach of the National Day of Prayer.”
Officially, the acquisition occurred March 1, but the two ministries will complete the transition after the 2018 National Day of Prayer on May 3.
