A number of events/rides are planned for the 2014 “riding season” by local Azusa StreetRiders’ chapters across the country. Go to http://www.azusastreetriders.com/event/ to see a few and join with us to reach out to lost bikers and their families. If you’re a Oneness Apostolic biker, don’t overlook these potentially soul-saving outreach opportunities. Plug in! Get involved! Help us win souls!
We are all vessels of God’s service. Can we choose what kind of vessels we are?
We are told it addresses issues we pointed out regarding the initial release. Those who downloaded and installed version 1.0: you should get a notice via App Store telling you an update is ready and available. For those who never yet installed it, just go to the App Store and install. The best search terms to find it are “Azusa StreetRiders.”
Note: If you had version 1.0 first, be aware that after updating to 2.2 you may need to restart your phone in order to use the updated app.
The World Network of Prayer is a global prayer ministry effort administered by the United Pentecostal Church International. WNOP’s weekly Prayer Connect newsletter (which you can sign up for free by clicking here), goes out to many thousands of readers. In the March 18, 2014 edition of Prayer Connect, the WNOP featured an article about the recent ASR Bind the Strong Man prayer event. Here is their excellent report, thanks to ASR Pastor Mike Markham:
Azusa StreetRiders All Night Prayer Meeting
Last weekend, Azusa StreetRiders from seven states joined members of Turning Point Fellowship in Marbury, Alabama, Pastor Mike Markham, for Bind the Strong Man, an all-night prayer gathering. Additionally, several other churches in the US and Canada opened their doors for Azusa StreetRiders members, church members and guests to join in all-night, focused corporate prayer following the same hourly prayer outline as in Marbury.
This was the second annual Bind the Strong Man event. At the event last year in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, God healed Patrick Beall of brain cancer after doctors had given him little hope of survival. Other noted miracles took place.
In Luke 24:49, Jesus instructed his disciples to “go to Jerusalem and tarry…” The world changed forever because these men obeyed Christ and traveled for a corporate prayer meeting. Please pray that more churches join us in our prayer efforts as we try to grow Bind the Strong Man prayer meetings with next year’s event to be held at Eminence, KY.
The Azusa StreetRiders Motorcycle Ministry is endorsed by the UPCI. Visit their website, azusastreetriders.com for more information on being involved in Bind the Strong Man prayer meetings.
