Pray

The great prayer warrior A. C. Dixon once said,

When we depend upon organizations, we get what organizations can do; when we rely upon education, we get what education can do; when we rely upon eloquence, we get what eloquence can do. And so on. But when we rely upon prayer, we get what God can do.

One of the resounding testimonies shared by people who have spent time overseas with our front-line native missionaries is the tremendous importance that our brothers and sisters place on prayer. When leaving these newfound friends to their work in the mission fields (often among poverty and persecution), our Western visitors frequently ask the question, “What can we do for you?” or “How can we enlist the Western church to help you?”

Some might think the reply would be, “We need more resources to enable us to take the Gospel further,” or “We need more training, church buildings, etc.” But in almost every case the answer is the same: Pray for us.” Of all the things native missionaries could ask for, they ask for our prayers. They have learned that without prayer there is no provision, without prayer there is no protection, and without prayer there is no power.

We need your prayers. The thousands of native missionaries whom we are privileged to serve need your prayers. It all begins with prayer.

We invite you to become intercessors for the nations. May God bless you on that journey.
