Ministry’s Involvement Around the World
We hope you will enjoy learning about the different areas
around the world where United Prayer Ministry is involved. The
focus of UPM is prayer and evangelism. Evelyn Christenson, the
founder and chairman of UPM, has authored over 12 books and
numerous Bible study materials. She taught prayer and evangelism
in every continent of the world, and her material has been
translated into many languages. Although Evelyn is not traveling
internationally as in earlier years, UPM is still active in
reaching souls for Jesus Christ at home and around the world.
Trans World Radio (TWR) is
the most far-reaching Christian radio network in the world.
Programs in over 225 languages and dialects are aired from
more than 2,000 outlets around the world, including 14
international broadcasting locations.
United Prayer Ministry has had a long-standing relationship
with TWR for over 30 years. UPM now broadcasts into India in
English and Hindi from Sri Lanka. We also broadcast from
Uruguay which reaches into Argentina, Paraguay, and Brazil.
Languages Initiative is an
exciting new ministry which focuses on evangelism to
non-English speaking people here in America. The World is at
America’s Doorstep, and we want to take every opportunity to
reach these foreign speakers in our country with Jesus Christ.
We use the book A Study Guide for Evangelism Praying by
Evelyn Christenson. It is translated in over 60 languages, and
used successfully on every continent.
People in ethnic churches here in the United States are taught
to follow A Study Guide for Evangelism Praying’s
biblical instructions step by step, and to pray in Triplets or
groups of three for family and friends who do not yet know
Christ. The Census Bureau estimates that about 30% of all
legal immigrants decide to leave the U.S. and return to their
home countries. If these newly trained missionaries return
home with the Gospel, we have reached more people of another
country unencumbered by cultural and language barriers.
A Study Guide for Evangelism Praying
on the Website is another wonderful opportunity to declare the
Gospel. A Study Guide for Evangelism Praying by Evelyn
Christenson is translated in over 60 languages, and is used
successfully on every continent. This book presents the heart
of the Gospel of Jesus condensed into a few pages. It is
deliberately kept simple so everyone around the world can
understand it and be able to afford to use it. It is
purposefully written in outline form to give the most crucial
points of the Gospel. It also teaches evangelism through
United Prayer Ministry is putting this book FREE on our
website in many languages so people around the world can have
easy access to the Gospel of Jesus. We now have the Study
Guide in 8 languages on our website, and it is our prayer that
we will be able to make available to the world all 60
languages some day.
United Prayer Ministry is involved in
several Para-Church Organizations. We send a
representative to the National Day of Prayer organizational
meetings now under the leadership of Shirley Dobson which
brings the United States of America our National Day of
Prayer. Vonette Bright invited Evelyn along with others to
form our National Prayer Committee in the seventies. This
committee was responsible for the United States Congress under
the leadership of President Reagan to officially establish
every first Thursday in May as our National Day of Prayer.
Evelyn was one of the founding leaders who organized the
National Day of Prayer and UPM is still very involved.
We are also involved with the Mission America Coalition.
The coalition consists of many top leaders of Christian
organizations from around the United States. Their main focus
is to evangelize the United States.
Evelyn is very involved with the Global Day of Prayer.
On Pentecost Sunday, which is the Global Day of Prayer, they
are expecting over 250 million Christians world-wide in over
200 countries to be connected by satellite, T.V. and radio for
a huge prayer and worship meeting. Christians pray from when
the sun rises until it sets in their country so our world can
be filled with prayer for the Lord’s glory on one day. UPM is
one of several ministries involved in organizing the Global
Day of Prayer in Minneapolis which will be the only U.S. city
to televise this event in 2009.
