A Spiritual Leader Among Spiritual Leaders in Europe
Leader Formation International
It is yet another time to pray for a key leader in Europe, a spiritual leader in Romania who reaches out to a significant part of the continent in our Leader Formation International ministry.
His name is Daniel Fodorean, a Romanian who lived under the Communists through his childhood and teenage years under the Communists, and those of you who pray with us recognize him as a vital part in all we do ministering to this part of the world. I was first introduced to him when he was working on his PhD at the University of Bucharest while serving as a pastor in Constanta, Romania. As I got to know him we served together to pastors all over his country and then developed a curriculum we used for several years not only in Romania but also in Ukraine, Moldova, England, then in Italy, Spain, Austria, Germany, and France. He has also influenced Norway, Sweden, and even Russia for the Gospel. He moved from Constanta to Bucharest and continued to serve throughout much of Europe. He has published a curriculum, multiple articles, and courses and also led seminars and conferences. In view of this commitment, he needs much encouragement and prayer, and it is for this reason that I send you these requests today. Please pray for Daniel.
Genesis 3 is repeated in every generation and the battle is with the evil one who strives to replace the true Lord of All. So, we must fight this battle with the greatest weapon there is: prayer.
That he will influence other leaders to be desperately dependent on the Lord
That he will constantly be in God’s word and influence other leaders to know the word
That he will consistently call those he confluences to walk with the Lord.
That he will continue to grow in his walk with the Lord in these demanding times in Europe
That he will have discipline at this time of uncertainty as he calls on many to speak for the Lord
That he will have peace and confidence when all he has planned is radically challenged
That he will move forward with certainty as he faces demands from other leaders
That those he influences will find the truth of God’s word to be the hope they need
That those he leads will have the assurance of God’s faithfulness on a consistent basis
That he will have the strength he needs to lead others forward for the Lord
That he will have the ability to guide key leaders with the certainty of God’s truth
That he will move forward with the assurance that the Lord is with him when he feels alone
That he will have the health he must have to be a key husband, father, and leader in these days
That any physical needs he faces will be resolved with assurance
That he will have the strength he must have to be the man his leaders desperately need
That he will have the discipline he must have to be the leader everyone wants
That his wife will find strength and stability to stand with him as she serves the Lord with him
That he will continue to be desperately dependent on the Lord (John 15:5) in this time
That he and his wife can serve together in courage and confidence to honor the Lord
That his wife can be a source of stability to stand with him in all overwhelming moments
That his son will finish college and move into a challenging ministry of communication
That all of them together can be one with the Lord at all times
That they can be one no matter what they experience before the sovereign Lord
That he can support those who serve over much of Europe in Matthew 28 ways
That he can train those who are in seminary to learn to serve the Lord today and in the future
That he can equip those who are creating curriculums in creative ways
That those who are primary leaders can guide their followers in vital ways
As always there is much more I could say, but this is adequate for our purpose at this time. The demands are overwhelming, and I simply want to encourage all I know that there are many who are with you and want to support you in these creative days. Please stand with me as I stand with you and want to support you in your leadership. You are a leader of leaders in many countries and are making the Gospel present in major cities throughout what was once a Christian continent. I pray that the Lord will use you to make a radical difference, not only in Europe but also in every other continent on earth.
