Prayer for Men

This is Gail Dudley. I am having one of those weeks in which I have not had in a long time. The Holy Spirit is speaking and I am simply being obedient.

Please - Please - Please pray for men around the world, Friday, July 8, 2011 throughout the day. Nothing organized, just need to pray.

Godly men are being attacked every day. Phone call after phone call I am hearing women cry out for the men in their lives (husbands, brothers, fathers, grand-fathers, co-workers, male pastors, friends, and the list goes on). Men are losing their jobs, therefore unable to provide for their family and to maintain the bills. Men are becoming stressed and becoming ill. Men are becoming discouraged. Men are not taking care of themselves, and they are losing motivation, becoming distracted, etc.

What I am seeing in the spirit is that men are being attacked by the enemy. The enemies plans is to take out and or distract the head. God holds the victory. Let us join in a time of prayer of intercession. Men, women, children, prayer warriors, please join in a day of prayer for men.

What I am hearing in the spirit is – this is urgent!

Mark 14:37-38 - New International Version (NIV):
"Then he returned to his disciples and found them sleeping. 'Simon,' he said to Peter, 'are you asleep? Couldn’t you keep watch for one hour? Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.'”

Never Sell Anything Again - And Watch Your Business Soar

by Barry Moltz: (originally posted on the AMEX Open Forum)

I pity the small businesses that try to sell their products or services only through features and benefits. They think that hard sales tactics like cold calling or deep price discounting actually still work and are a solid way to build their business. They keep trying to sell to the same old prospects until they become so unresponsive that they are lost on how to find additional business.

Sales, in the traditional sense, is dead. In fact, trying to sell to prospects only breaks down our confidence and make us feel bad about our company. When a prospect says no to our product or service, we think they are saying no to us personally. We hate it. We feel the sting and it makes us reluctant to try it over and over again.

I learned a long time ago from Sander Selling Systems that the formula for people buying is actually very simple. Customers buy when:

1. They are in pain.
2. They have the money to solve that pain.

As a small business owner, the first task is to be able to describe the pain that your company solves and identify who has the money to solve that pain. In fact, this should be practiced as your “elevator speech."

The next step is to forget the “S” word. Now learn the “R” word: relationships. Relationships are the key to growing your company and can bring sales to you almost effortlessly. This is because we actually can’t sell anything to anyone. We just need to be there when people are ready to buy. This is why consistent marketing is so important. You need to continually remind people what you do and how you help others. When they have a problem you can solve (and the money to solve it), they will naturally buy from you. They may even know someone else that has the same pain and make a connection.

Don't waste your time by chasing the people that long ago decided not to buy from you. These are the same people that have stopped returning your phone calls or e-mail inquiries months ago. Remember, every prospect needs to continually qualify themselves for it to be worth your time in the sales process. As a result, the only way to grow your company over the long term is to keep investing in building trusted relationships. This is done by implementing a systematic method for "staying in touch" with people over a long period of time.

Three simple methods for doing this are:

1. Use CRM software such as HighRise, Salesforce, or Goldmine to know when to periodically contact people (monthly or quarterly). Any simple reminder system that can capture information can be effective.

2. Consistently reach out to people through phone, e-mail or snail mail. This is done not by selling them anything, but by giving them something of value they can use in their business. This can be a person they should meet, a lead, a resource article or a helpful website.

3. Use social media to “Like” or “Retweet” their comments or content. They will think of you for an instant and remember the value you bring.

Vow never to sell again. Think building relationships. It works every time.

A StemEnhance Testimonial

We commonly see health as the absence of disease, but being healthy is much more than not being sick. Many people falsely believe they are in good health until they suffer a quick blow, like a heart attack or kidney failure. God made our body self-healing, but less than optimal operating conditions make the arduous task even more difficult. At the vertex of health and wellness lay human adult stem cells which are there the day we are born. They're found mostly in bone marrow.

Stem cells are primitive or master cells. They circulate and function to replace dysfunctional cells, fulfilling the body’s natural process of renewal and maintaining optimal health. Studies have now shown that adult stem cells can be brain, liver, eye & muscle cells - Then they have the ability of becoming cells of all other tissues in the body. Thus adult stem cells are the natural renewal system of the body.

I was first introduced to StemEnhance in 2009. I had a slight injury in my hand - a boil which was getting itchy. I took StemEnhance, and to my surprise, the boil dried up in 2 days and today there is no scar on my hand. I started to introduce to my friends and I am amazed at the testimonies. StemEnhance is not stem cells or embryonic stem cells. But what, then, is StemEnhance?

StemEnhance is a patented breakthrough, first ever natural stem cell enhancer, anti-aging food supplement that increase the number of stem cells released from our bone marrow into the bloodstream. It is made up of 100% natural organic Aphanizomenon Flos Aqua (AFA) extracted from Klamath Lake, USA. The effect of StemEnhance on stem cells was tested in a double-blind, placebo-controlled, crossover study. Consumption of StemEnhance triggered a significant 25% increase in the number of circulating stem cells. It was published in Cardiovascular Revascularization Medicine (Volume 8 Issue).

I do not suffer from any serious sickness…Praise God! But I do consume this for ‘maintenance!’ I do not feel easily tired, and even my mum has been consuming it. This year, after 2 eye check ups, the doctors confirmed she had a cataract. She doubled the dose of StemEnhance and praise God, today she says her eye sight is clear and there is no sign of cataracts. Truly, there are many testimonies and all I can say is to visit my website, Watch the video, and you will understand better.

Enjoy your life with good health! Submitted by Nicole Tang
