Introduction by Ken Harrison, Chairman of Promise Keepers

On Friday, we received the news that Dr. Luis Palau, celebrated evangelist and longtime friend of Promise Keepers, had passed to his eternal reward. Luis spoke for Promise Keepers in stadiums across the width and breadth of our country. He reminded Promise Keepers that the life of integrity for a Christian man includes a commitment to sharing the Good News of the Gospel with the lost. Today, due in no small measure to his influence, the men of Promise Keepers are praying for a massive revival and transformation in our nation by 2025.

In the 1990s, Promise Keepers published a landmark book, Seven Promises of a Promise Keeper, to explain what it meant to be a Promise Keeper. Of course, Luis Palau wrote the chapter on the Great Commission. His words are as powerful and relevant now as they were then. I’m sharing them in the prayer that together, we’ll recommit to evangelizing our world just as Luis committed to evangelizing the world.

Here, then, are the words of encouragement to the men of Promise Keepers by Luis Palau:

“Lord, I promise to help fulfill the Great Commission in my world for Your glory.
