Brethren, pray for us. 1Thes 5:25
There are so many evidences in the bible of the success works of early missionaries which affirm with absolute certainty that everything in missions is by PRAYER!
Psalm 2:8 tells us to ask for the nations as our inheritance. In Jeremiah
33:3 we are urged by the word of God, “Call unto me, and I will answer, and show you great and
mighty things that you know not of.” God acts in response to His people’s
prayers. It is the utmost desire of God that everyone be saved (2 Peter 3:9). Jesus told His disciples to pray for more labourers to be sent to the harvest fields. ( Matthew 9:38). He will build His church
If we ask anything according to His will, He hears us and
will give us what we request (1 John 5:14-15). Without prayer, nothing will happen in Missions.
History gives us vivid examples of the priority of prayer in Missions.
In 1727, German Moravians began a prayer meeting that lasted 100 years. As a result of this prayer meeting, revival
swept through the churches, and hundreds of missionaries were sent out. In 1806, students at Williams College in Massachusetts, USA were caught in a rainstorm and took refuge in a convenient haystack. They used the time to pray
for the lost and wound-up on mission fields, igniting the “Student Volunteer
Without prayer, all of the resources,
structures and intentions simply do not have the effect God intends. Prayer is the ministry God has
given to everyone to enable us “reach” the unreached. Everyone can pray.
The Go-North Missions Team strongly believes that everything in missions is by prayer. The team spent hours in prayers before and during the Go-North Missions among the Nanumbas. It started the prayer session during the Easter holidays with the Praying Through Summit, then the impactation night of prayer at the eve of departure to Wulensi. Upon arrival, the Missions Team kept on praying and have been praying.
Kindly remember to pray for our Missions Team and missionaries serving among the Nanumbas.
