Prayer letter for November 2014

Dear Praying Friends In this season we take time to give thanks for the greatest gift of all – God’s Son, our Lord Jesus.   As the year draws to a close you can probably recall many challenges that you have had to overcome, however, you can probably recall as many answers to prayer for which you give thanks to the Lord.   Here are a few prayer requests from some of our associates, thank you for praying with them so that they, too,  may give thanks to the Lord for His answers and blessings.   God bless you and your loved ones in 2015, The AbR Steering Committee

The entire world is being changed by mobile devices, and our app will help individuals, groups, organisations and churches experience more connected, responsive, exciting prayer lives. It will encourage prayer and be a powerful prayer tool in a pocket.  Please ask the Lord to: help us raise funding to fully complete the first version of the app. Lead investors and donors to hear then to help get it done. Provide sufficient sponsorship, for the rest of the project. Motivate our team as we step out in faith.   Mark Taylor.
