LMCO Day 8: Why Prayer Matters

When it comes to praying for missionaries, IMB President David Platt said there’s one thing to keep in mind.

It matters.

When we pray, God works.

It isn’t just a rushed or mechanical exercise, he said—”God has ordained our prayer as a means to accomplish His purpose in the world. We’ve got to be aware that our praying for boldness for missionaries is actually going to affect whether or not they have boldness. When we pray, God works.”

He offered some real and powerful ways to pray for missionaries:

  • PRAY they would be confident to preach God’s Word—not just to do relief work or learn culture well, but to speak truth with boldness, no matter the circumstances.
  • PRAY the gospel would be clear through missionaries’ lives and words and that God would open hearts.
  • PRAY missionaries will be at peace with other believers, that Satan would not have success in attacking families, friends and ministry partners.
  • PRAY for them to have joy when they suffer, kindness when they are slandered and patience when things are hard. Pray for God to help them persevere—fighting the battle for souls is hard, but it’s worth it.
  • PRAY God would give them success in sharing the gospel with others, that they would see disciples made and churches planted.

LMCO Day 7: What God Has Done

Dilara’s* heart nearly jumped out of her chest when she found the building. She had seen it in a dream—Jesus had picked her up from her bed one night and led her there through the streets of her Central Asian town. In the dream, He had asked her if she was ready to believe, and she’d seen three men standing in the front of the church. When she found the building a few weeks later and walked inside, she was greeted by one of those men. Today, she’s a believer.

Like with Dilara, in every corner of the world, God is drawing hearts to Himself in amazing ways.

Just ask the woman in Southeast Asia healed from partial deafness after an IMB missionary prayed over her. Or ask the dad in France who believed after a “chance” encounter with a follower of Christ at his son’s soccer game. Or ask the man in Slovenia struggling with mental illness who cried out to God and now is living a life surrendered to Jesus. Though the ground can be hard, stories of miracles and changed lives abound.

  • PRAY for God to continue to work in mysterious ways in the lives of people all over the world.
  • PRAY for hearts from every people group to be drawn to worship Jesus.
