  • Pray for the China team as they translate and produce the new title, The Beast or The Lamb. It will be an important addition to the many Derek Prince books that we distribute in hard copy and online in China.


In a time of increased clampdown on the church in China, we are thrilled by responses like the testimony below. A Chinese man reported: "My wife and I have been telling people around us to read books by 叶光明 (Derek Prince) and to listen to his sermons. We praise God for his faithful yet heavenly wisdom and anointed insight into the Bible. Without Derek’s teaching, I can’t imagine where we would be. There are a great many people like me."

January 23 - India

Pray for the successful distribution of all the booklets, and for many people to gain understanding of support for Israel.
  • Pray for the successful printing and distribution of Life-Changing Spiritual Power in Tswana and Xhosa in the coming months.

Testimony - South Africa

Derek Prince often said he didn’t want to offer mere theology or theory; he wanted God’s Word to practically impact people’s lives. The testimony of Gerald, who lives in the Cape, shows just that. He called the office to share that he went into a second-hand bookshop and found God’s Remedy for Rejection. He studied the teaching and started applying forgiveness. His father had disappeared out of his life, and he never knew why. Then his mother remarried, and he had a difficult stepfather. After working through forgiveness, he contacted his mother and found out his father had drowned in the sea in Cape Town. He also restored relationships with his half-sisters and brothers, and they will all meet over Christmas. He wanted to make a donation to DPM in appreciation for what Derek’s teaching had done in his life and family.

January 29 - West Africa

  • Pray for protection and God’s anointing for Kalidou Barry in Guinea-Conakry as he oversees the translation of Derek’s 30 core messages into the Pular language. He has had two motorcycle accidents in a short time, which has greatly delayed the work.

Outreach Report - South Africa

We thank the Lord for the new Bible study groups that have been established using Derek’s books Foundational Truths for Christian Living and Bought with Blood. Pastor Stemmet has travelled well over 34,000 km since June 2019 and has distributed many books, mainly in the Cape. The people in these areas are starved spiritually, not having a resident pastor in many places, as they are unable to support them. Pastor Stemmet said that many doors were wide open for Derek’s teaching wherever he was ministering. One person he met works for the Doringbaai Municipality on the West Coast of South Africa. She was overjoyed to receive the books and said she is going to start a Bible study group to share this teaching.

January 30 - United States Hispanic Outreach

  • A seminar for pastors and leaders will be held in Cartagena, Colombia, 15–18 February. Pray for God’s anointing and protection for Cesar, a staff member in our Hispanic Department, who will teach from Derek’s book, Rediscovering God’s Church. Pray also for protection over Cesar's family while he is away.
  • Pray for God’s refreshing and revelation for these leaders and that they will go on to help their congregations mature through Derek’s teaching.

January 31 - Canada

  • Pray for the Lord’s continued wisdom and guidance as to the best way to impact the large nation of Canada with Derek’s teaching material.
