In addition to Ben, please pray for our own PrayerBiker member, Stephanie Forbes "†Faith†", Her father, Larry Gwin, passed this morning about 7:15 in the state of Georgia. Also she requests prayer for her husband, Bob, for a safe ride back from Georgia as he is riding back on his bike.
A memorial service for Larry will be held on the 7th of may. Text for details if interested.
Also, let's continue in prayer for the total healing of the damaged nerve in her back.
ATTENTION: Christian Biker M/Cs and M/Ms along with PrayerBiker.com members have teamed up and launched a new system which will bring the PrayerBiker.com's idea of a Rapid Response Prayer Team into functioning reality.
A few of the M/M and M/C's already registered there include: CMA, Armor Bearers, Cruzin' For Christ, Black Sheep, Tribe of Judah and an increasing number of other clubs in addition to several of us PrayerBiker.com Charter Members.
Once we have enough prayer warriors "Road Warriors" (proper) who have applied, been screened and collected into the system, we will present our valuable system to national emergency networks and law enforcement groups to get the Rapid Response System listed on the socialservices lists.
Law enforcement agencies already provide lists of local services for victims and their family. Once we have enough warriors ready and listed in the system, we believe getting on those lists nationally will be a piece of cake.
There is a special group on the system named "PrayerBiker.com Liaison" and we would LOVE to have you join the system from here and be a member of THAT group. When you do, and post in our forum, you give FREE advertising to Al and PrayerBiker.com in addition to helping as a Prayer Partner with us. Rapid Response Prayer Team members here are ParayerBiker.com Liaisons within the Rapid Response System. Sounds complicated? It isn't when you Just Do It! :)
The Biker Down Ministry Rapid Response System is designed for making available aglobal team of Christian bikers who are willing to go to hospitals and ministerto DOWNED BIKERS. Those injured in an accident, sick or just need a fellow bikerto visit them in the hospital can now receive emergency help and prayer forthemselves as well as their family members. (also emergency relief funds forthose who qualify and as funds are available)
@BlazinBlonde FYI, your comment didn't get past me.. I noticed it the day you posted it and prayed then and am now. I've been soooooo busy building this new dynamic system until posting on PrayerBiker.com has been tough to fit in. On THAT note, you and others who are members of this Rapid Response Prayer Team can make this team MUCH more dynamic and active here by registering on the system created for it. See the description above for details. Once registered on the system, details can get passed back and forth from here to there and there to here, not to mention the dynamic BIKER DOWN ALERTS you get from the system :)
Thanks for making yourself available on the system Big Bad. I enjoyed our phone chat. Be sure to RSVP to attend our new monthly Biker Down Ministry Members and Fans Conference Call. Details in the RRS Forum under EVENTS
@Big Bad.... Thank you for your interest! Simply go to BikerDownEmergency.com ....I an looking forward to processing your application..... Also, continued prayers over George Taylor from the other post below.
Due to a bike incedent George is suffering from a broken neck and a broken foot. It really upsets me that shock trauma sent him home (he lives alone) because he lacks medical insurance. Please pray that Jesus is his care taker for as long as he needs it. I know he has his hand on this I feel every prayer lifted is a praise of faith to God. Thank you, Your sister in Christ Tracey
Andrew; I think it would be a good idea for our members to list the state as well as the towns where they will be serving. As I looked at the list, I have no idea what state some of the listed towns are in.
Beemer, do you mean on http://www.Facebook.com/BikerDownEmergency ? Try there again and if you can't see how to post then that means I'll have to do a Facebook study. I see where fans of the page have posted and one said it wouldn't let him comment but post only. Look there once more and if you can't figure out how to post I will do a study and figure out what's up. Thanks for the patience and effort, we are gaining ground :)
After 3 visits, I finally got to meet & pray with Tracy Tayler today. He continues to get better, & will probably get out of expensive care in the next few days. Praise the Lord! He even was Able to get up & walk a short distance in the hall today! Please continue to lift Tracy & his family up to the Lord in prayer. He has a long road ahead of him in his healing process.
Lifting up Tracy and Kerri in prayer as this is typed! Come Holy Spirit and surround them both. Guide Tracy's doctors and nurses. Please bring rapid healing to all of the damaged cells in Tracy's body. Fill him o' Lord to overflowing and cover him with your healing grace. Please give Kerri strength and peace to be able to cope with the stress, fear and pain of this. We ask all of these things in Jesus Christ's name. Amen
BIKER DOWN ALERT: Tracy Taylor is from Vienna Illinois and had a serious crash on Weds night after church. He was life flighted to Barnes Jewish with massive chest and head injuries. He is still in an induced coma. His wifes name is Kerri. They are both members of CMA. Please pray for them both. (Prayer Warrior Ned Lineback is being dispatched there in person by our system)
Brian Grossman (Catholic Cross Bearers) http://bikeremergency.com/BrianGrossman.php Washington Joint Base Lewis-McChord, WA: Madigan Army Medical Center; Lakewood, WA: St. Clare Hospital; Tacoma, WA: Tacoma General Hospital, St. Joseph Hospital, Allenmore Hospital; Puyallup, WA: Good Samaritan Hospital
Welcome Tyler & Longview Texas to the system with Jerry Wrinkle now active. Also welcome to Mike Jarvis for Milford, Ohio. Here is complete list so far on the "Warriors By Name" page: http://bikeremergency.com/WarriorByName.html
Hello to ALL warriors. As being the National President of the ARMOR BEARERS M/C I have already activated 2 "Biker Down" emergency responses for fellow riders but also believers since this has been activated. This is a most powerful tool that can and will be in Advancement of God's Kingdom. There will come the time that you may be activated to a hospital that may be for a non-believer and the door has been opened by God for you to be there and share the love of Jesus to that individual. But, if you are not an active member in the emergency response list you may miss that opportunity.
I strongly encourage you to get signed up. Let God then send you where He needs you. Fulfill the "Great Commission".
I had worked on the warrior application form several days ago and apparently my edit had rendered the form useless for a while, that is until jlw57 and Chaplain Hawk messaged me pointing out the various problems.
Chaplain Hawk and I this morning got-er-dun
Sorry for the inconvenience and please post here any problems or questions you may have in the future.
I'm trying to sign up but the web site page entry boxs are not lining up right with the questions. I have entered everything but it will not let be send it. I put in my PrayerBiker user name and it keeps poping up with this, enter "none" if not a PrayerBiker member. Any suggestions?
ATTN: Rapid Response Prayer Team Group Members who have NOT YET registered to the Rapid Response System
Here is a list of the current Prayer Warrior's in the form of their Rapid Response Contact Page links that you might see just how this works.
First though allow me to say that going from GROUP MEMBER here to active PRAYER WARRIOR there (on the actual system) an online application must be filled out. Without filling out the application there is no way to be contacted by downed bikers, their family and there is no way for law enforcement officers and emergency medical teams to reach you in an actual event. Even if they knew of PrayerBiker.com and came here they would have a hard time drilling down to find you, the one available in your area. THAT is why a SYSTEM was needed and why John Harris, Gary Kitchen of Armor Bearers MC and myself have developed this system.
PLEASE take the time to look at it, pretend you are a family member of a biker who JUST went down and you get a call from EMS or law enforcement letting you know your biker went down and while they are on the phone with you they tell you of a biker down support team ready to meet you at the hospital for prayer and other services of comfort. They give you the web site URL www.BikerEmergency.com and you visit it and follow the directions to get a prayer warrior there NOW.
Go ahead! Check it out! It will only take a moment or two and then come back here and comment.
I will answer any questions or concerns you may have about the system, me or others involved and we can get you hooked up and serving your area in real time as a Rapid Response Prayer Warrior Team Member
Here is the list (which by the way can already be accessed from the home page with the link SEARCH BY NAME):
[quote]the last person who joined hadn't done so until late yesterday.[/quote]
CORRECTION, that would actually be "the last person who joined was only moments ago" and the reason they hadn't joined yet was simply due to not having done it yet... well, until they did... join... when they did... AWWWW NUTS... you know what I mean!
BTW, welcome to you, Dave from Massachusetts, to the PRAYER WARRIORS available on the national rapid response system
Someone sent me a private message suggesting that the most likely reason why a CMA hasn't yet signed up on the system is due to the existing organization's logos on the site... that CMA only allows their colors to be displayed on a website with written permission only.
I suspect the reason there is no CMA thus far is due to the rough newness and availability of the system. It has only been available for very few days not to mention that the last person who joined hadn't done so until late yesterday.
To avoid confusion allow me to clarify:
The colors shown on BikerEmergency.com are shown at the request of the respective organization's Presidents and other foundational officers and so because those ministries are sharing the responsibilities of offering the system to the community.
CMA and its members are welcome to participate but it is not required by the injured biker community for a CMA or any other specific organization to be available for them in their time of need. CMA members are welcome to participate before CMA has given written permition for BikerEmergency.com to place their logo on the site, if ever written permission is granted.
If an image is standing in anyone's way of ministering God's calling due to an image, may I refer to to the bible concerning images. If the reader does not know the book and verse, please ask and I will post it.
I pray my words are not too strong; I do not mean to offend; I only mean to speak the truth with power, love and sound mind.
I do like the new banner. What about the CMA for organizations represented? I am not in CMA yet but are any of the rest of us? Thank you for all of the work you are doing. And it is a great job too. peace, Faith
No worries Andrew. You can call me Faith or Steph. Name is Stephanie Faith Forbes. : ) I went ahead and filled out the form to be sure you have all the info you need to reach me. Most excellent job on this!! Thank you brother. Peace
Today and half of the night I have created the initial advanced system that would be required to drive a rapid response ministry successfully.
Such a system would need to be a stand alone system and the "group" for it here on PrayerBikers.com would be simply for team member chat and collaboration.
With this advanced system all interested members of PrayerBikers.com would enter the system and "adjust their settings" complete with their emergency contact info as well as selecting with a button their desired state, cities and hospitals the member wishes to be on call for.
When a non=PrayerBiker finds the system anywhere other than at PrayerBiker.com, that person, should they have interest to serve, would be directed to join PrayerBiker.com FIRST and then join the Rapid Response group. From there the official PrayerBiker/RapidResponseGroup Member would "adjust their settings" within the dynamic system.
If you will notice on the RRPT Group... There are only two of us who have identified the area we are willing to serve and those two areas are: 1> WACO by BlackTopGypsy 2> Austin, San Marcos, New Braunfels, San Antonio area by me Andrew Morgan
NOTE: BOTH properly linked in this new active system I built.
CURRENTLY, with the only two of the 90 RRPT members who are ready and searchable by city in the PrayerBiker.com site itself and now on my new system, if someone needed BlackTopGypsy to go to Hillcrest Baptist Medical Center in Waco and needed him there in a hurry, brother downed biker would be left all alone because BlackTopGypsy has no name nor phone number available on his PrayerBiker.com Profile (no offence Brother BlackTopG)...
On the other hand if someone searching for an immediate prayer visit to Central Texas Medical Center in San Marcos, TX or Georgetown Medical Center and somehow miraculous found me on the RRPT Group where I had posted my availability, they would find my name AND cell phone number (I already weed out spam calls so I can't use that as an excuse to not list my number) THAT IS IF.. IF someone happened to locate the group from having a need.
I know a way to make this one little idea you guys had on PrayerBiker.com into a full blown, easy to get to, easy to hear about ministry, easy to use for the family needing it as well as all of us driving it.
Here is a Functioning static page version of the public request side of the system... what people in need would see... The SEARCH FUNCTION for finding and contacting a R.R.P.M. (rapid response prayer member)
When you go there, of the only current active city links in central Texas area, be sure to select WACO and see what happens compared to selecting any of the other cities like KYLE or San Marcos or San Antonio.
Building this system out in full as a dynamic data base driven system will not be hard to do but will require the eager support and encouragement of all current members. And Al too I would suppose.
Give me feed back guys n gals cause I am ALL in on this one if you all say go.
