The Journey Into the Presence of God prayer conference is so unique that many struggle to understand what it is. The Promo DVD is a big step toward solving that problem. It contains three segments. There's a one minute publicity video suitable for promotions during a worship service, a seven minute preview of the conference that's great for showing to church leadership, and a 'word to pastors' in which I speak directly to pastors about the conference. To view the one minute video, click here. To order the DVD, click the 'add to cart' button.

The Prayer Guide ministry continues to build momentum. Tri City Baptist in Conover, North Carolina did us a great service by providing video of the conference we did there. I ’ve used it to create a short, three segment Promo DVD, which I believe will prove very helpful as we move forward in promoting the revival of prayer.

In October, Harry Black, (firstname.lastname@example.org) Director of Missions of the Washington/Madison Baptist Association in Northwest Arkansas, invited me to speak to their pastor's meeting about my pilgrimage of congregational prayer. This was received very well. I ran into Harry recently and he mentioned that the pastors are still being influenced by that meeting.
During that 30 minute presentation, I used power point, research, and personal experience to drive home the reality that Baptists have learned to build bigger churches without building bigger Christians because they've abandoned congregational prayer. Speaking to pastors on this issue is so close to my heart that I'll go just about anywhere to do it. Please consider asking the DOM in your association to contact me.
Book sales have increased, do in part to a five-fold increase in people coming to the web site, a total of over 1,500 visits with 20,000 hits. Also, the Prayer Guide book can now be viewed and searched online at www.books.google.com. This is very exciting to me because one of my original goals with the web site was to give immediate assistance to those seeking help with leading prayer. Right now they can view and do word searches in 50% of the book for free. Eventually, for a fee, they'll be able to use the whole book online.
I've also added a shopping cart to my online store so folks can make purchases using their credit card. I got this up and running just as an influx of new visitors came to the site. Thank you Lord.
I want to thank Tim & Hilda Curry of Three Creeks Arkansas, for buying more books than anyone. To date they have purchased 18 for family, friends, and church staff members.
Two articles on prayer have been published. 1.An online interview with the National Pastors Prayer Network has brought many visits to the web site and resultant books sales to folks across the northern half of the country. If you're involved in a prayer ministry, I believe you'll find this interview helpful. 2.Arkansas Baptist News published Revive Congregational Prayer which I’ve included in this newsletter.
A recent promotional letter to over three hundred Arkansas pastors, has resulted in a few conferences scheduled. One of those will bring us back our old stomping ground of south Arkansas for a conference at the East Main Baptist Church in El Dorado March 11-12.
Thank you for your support and please continue to pray for the Lord’s anointing on our conferences and products.
God bless you all, Lowell Snow
