Exodus Update and Prayer Request

The following letter is from my friend and brother in Christ, Alan Chambers. Alan is president of Exodus International. I thought some of you might be interested in his letter...



Dear Exodus Family,

I am not sure what life is like for each of you, your families and ministries in this season but if it is anything like what we are experiencing in Orlando then you are in need of some help! It isn't unusual for us to come under attack during the height of conference planning and our response is always the same: PRAY!

Today has been nearly overwhelming for me personally as my longtime hero, Dawson McAllister, caved to pressure from Clear Channel Communications to cut ties with Exodus. For those of you who don't know much about my personal story, Dawson led me (personally) to Exodus 20 years ago. Dawson was grieved over the full frontal assault by gay activists that led to his board cutting ties (for now, he said) but he cut ties nonetheless. Sadly, the kids who call into his show for help with their ssa struggles will be met with silence. It's a dark day in the Church when we cave in on what we know to be true.

The story of Jennifer Knapp came out this week, too, taking a devastating toll on so many who will look to her as a Christian icon and consider that her way is the right way.

And then there are the everyday stories--the parents praying for their kids, families ravaged after a father leaves his family for another man...you name it. It's discouraging and overwhelming.

We know the end of the story, though. God will be glorified and the King of Kings will return for His spotless Bride. WE WIN. Until then we must pray. When we have nothing else we have something better than anything else---our relationship with the Creator of the Universe who is never caught off guard or discouraged.

All of this to say, would you consider joining the Exodus International staff in a daily prayer time? We pray ever day, M-TH at 9am sharp. While it is not possible for all of you to call in, we can simply agree together in spirit. If you would commit to praying with us each morning at 9am EST that would be amazing. Pray for your fellow leaders, your ministry, the upcoming Freedom, Leadership and Love Won Out conferences, Jennifer Knapp, Dawson, the 155 million people involved throughout the world in homosexuality, the EGA ministries worldwide, the upcoming EXLA Conference in Costa Rica, and whatever else the Lord brings to mind.

It is time for this movement to unite in prayer for a world in need of the Savior. Amen?

I look forward to hearing your, "Yes, I will pray with you, Alan!"

All for the Kingdom.
