Prayer is Vital to Global Missions…
Prayer for global missions changes our hearts as we learn more about the world and rejoice in lives changed by the gospel. Thank you for caring enough about prayer to reach this page! May you grow in faith and joy as you partner with us in praying for the nations.
Specific Ways to Pray
- Join us in praying for our missionary families, new believers, and the work of planting new churches among unreached people groups.
- Form a prayer group that meets regularly. Use the monthly prayer calendar as well as updates you receive from missionaries you know personally to form a prayer team that consistently and routinely blesses our ministry.
- Take a different kind of mission trip and pray on-site at one of our field prayer conferences. Locations vary each year – contact us for details!
- Pray for missionaries, specifically that God will continue to make us aware of the needs of the people we serve and how to most effectively reach them with the Good News.
- Pray for the world—that God’s glory will be known among the unreached, the suffering, the poor, and the persecuted.
