Kansas City, MO — Thousands have already joined the fast-growing prayer movement with IHOPKC founder Mike Bickle, in partnership with Charisma House, to embark on a life-changing 30-day encounter with God to establish a genuine, consistent prayer life.
The Growing in Prayer 30-Day Challenge comes at a time when so many feel compelled to unite in prayer as the world continues to grapple with terrorist attacks, mass shootings, and tragedies.
“There is no better time in our world for a deeply impactful prayer challenge and call to intimacy with God than right now,” said Steve Strang, founder and CEO of Charisma Media, publisher of Bickle’s Growing in Prayer.
The 30-day prayer challenge, found at growinprayer.com, inspires participants through free downloadable resources each week such as an eBook, teachings, videos, and challenges from Bickle.
“My aim is to help people establish a consistent lifestyle of prayer,” Bickle says. “First, to give practical instruction on what to do to develop a life of prayer; second, to give a biblical understanding of different types of prayer and the principles associated with them. But ultimately it’s an effort to help people connect with God in a sustainable, authentic, and intimate way.”
As author of the powerful book Growing in Prayer, Bickle understands that it can sometimes be difficult to talk to God. With this in mind, the challenge resources provide practical strategies that anyone can learn, such as establishing set times for prayer and developing effective prayer lists.
“Over his thirty years in ministry Mike Bickle has learned how to effectively communicate with God. To learn this vital technique from a respected spiritual leader such as he is truly a privilege not worth missing,” Strang added.
Bickle also personally engages participants through social media platforms facebook.com/GrowInPrayer and facebook.com/ihopkc, where prayer challenge highlights can be viewed and shared.
IHOPKC is best known for its prayer room, which has run 24/7 since its 1999 launch with live worship teams and subsequent broadcasts on its website.
Charisma House has published twelve New York Times best sellers, including The Harbinger and The Mystery of the Shemitah by Jonathan Cahn, and Fasting by Jentezen Franklin.
Lake Mary, FL— In a groundbreaking, historic endeavor founder and CEO of Charisma Media, Steve Strang, officially presented the Modern English Version Bible translation to the Dean of Windsor, who accepted it on behalf of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the longest-reigning monarch in British history, in a private ceremony at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle on May 8, 2016.
Strang presented a customized premium leather bound edition of the Modern English Version bible bearing the Royal Coat of Arms of the United Kingdom and a special dedication page.
Due to the MEV’s unique historical ties to the King James tradition, this event holds significance to the monarchy of the United Kingdom. Translated in the heritage of the Authorized Version, the MEV is the most up-to-date Bible in the King James tradition.
“Presenting the Modern English Version to Queen Elizabeth II is a milestone. The MEV’s lineage is directly tied to the King James translation which is perhaps the best-selling book in the history of the English language,” said Strang. He also added, “I believe the most important thing I will ever do is publish God's Word in modern English in this important new translation, particularly at this juncture in history.”
This literal translation maintains the beauty of the past yet provides fresh clarity for a new generation of Bible readers. The MEV accurately communicates God’s Word anew as it capitalizes references of God, maintaining reverence of the Scriptures.
Charisma Media/Passio first published the Modern English Version Bible translation in 2014, and it has become a translation of choice to Bible readers around the world.
Lake Mary, FL— ECPA, the association of Christian publishers, has announced the inclusion of Passio’s adult coloring book, The Promises of God, to its best-seller list.
The Promises of God comes in at #8 on the top 25 list which reflects monthly sales as reported by Nielsen across multiple channels.
“While many coloring books on the market provide the opportunity for relaxation, Charisma House's coloring books exclusively include Scriptures from the Modern English Version translation," said Tessie DeVore, Publisher of Charisma House Book Group. "Tethering the Word of God to coloring books in this fast growing genre provides an opportunity for consumers to engage with the Scriptures and break away from the busyness of life."
Passio’s beautifully designed coloring book combines the relaxing experience of coloring with uplifting scriptures from the Modern English Version translation.
Richly detailed designs provide a restitute of calmness and serenity in the midst of the busyness of everyday life. High-quality, thick paper that won’t bleed through also makes framing and gift-giving an ease.
Additional coloring books in production for 2016 include Patchwork of the Heart: Color Quilting Patterns and Scenes of Amish Life, and The Colors of Creation: Beautiful Reminders of God’s Wondrous World, Scenes from the Psalms: Color the Comfort of God’s Care and Protection, and Mommy and Me: A Mother’s Heart, each retailing for $10.99. Novices and experienced colorists alike will enjoy imaginative backgrounds, patterns, and scenery for hours of coloring relaxation in each book, along with encouraging scriptures from MEV.
