Partnering with God to Become an Agent of Change through Intercessory Prayer for the Nations of the World

Germaine Copeland’s book “Prayers that Avail Much for the Nations” provides the reader with powerful prayers for transforming the world and is a vital guidebook for becoming partners with God as agents of change in countries around the world in the midst of political upheaval, social injustice, and famine, and natural disasters.

The book is made up of five sections. Each section features a region of the world, country by country with powerful specific prayers. These prayers introduce the reader to particular areas of need in over 190 nations. Requirements may vary by region, including cultural differences, social issues, global causes, persecuted churches, those living under the threat of imprisonment for standing up for Christ and Christianity, refugees, poverty, and disease.

I was moved as the Holy Spirit unveiled God at work in our nation and the nations of the world giving a new perspective and worldview of my need to become involved in becoming a prayer partner with God; joining millions of others in daily, systematic prayers that will transform the world, and impact the ministry of world evangelism/

Voices of the Village – Core Values and Common Purpose

“ReInhabiting the Village, Co-Creating our Future” is an amazing collaboration of talented visionary artists, skilled photographers, awesome graphic designers, and expressive writers, from diverse backgrounds, cultures, and collective intellect.

Awe inspiring graphics create a colorful collection of dramatic stories which exemplify the celebration of community projects going on around the world. I especially enjoyed the features on: Media and Story Telling, Transformational Technologies, and Community Land Projects, as they introduced me to the benefits of building community through growing ecological awareness into every aspect of my life. The book is made up of twelve themes designed to “empower the reader through practical wisdom and inspiring perspectives.”

“ReInhabiting the Village, Co-Creating our Future” helped me expand my world view, in mid- rural America, by introducing me to multi-platform narrative and world-building techniques, including: Health and Healing, Art and Culture, Learning and Education, The Urban Village, and, Holistic Event Projects.

Nearly every page is filled with quotable concepts worthy of thoughtful consideration, commitment, and interaction. “ReInhabiting the Village, Co-Creating our Future” will be valued by readers at every level community, individual, corporate, and government, by leaders in industry, education, religion, social, and medical.  Highly recommended for decision makers, innovators, dreamers, and community builders…change makers in every field of endeavor. An invitation to begin or continue in a pattern of life long learning.
