In our several months of writing this blog, we haven’t hesitated to share our needs with you. We’ve asked for (among other things):
—regular financial partners.
—money for a new van.
—commitments to attend various events, including our iGO Missions Conference and ManUp/ReignOn weekends.
But there’s one thing we almost always ask for along with these other requests: prayer. That’s because prayer is what we need more than anything else.
Prayer moves our hearts toward the lost.
Prayer sends us to the mission field.
Prayer brings us the funds to get there.
Prayer protects us from the evil one.
Prayer prepares the way for us to share the gospel.
Prayer opens the doors wide and brings us opportunities we never expected.
Prayer overcomes government red tape, travel restrictions and all the other problems overseas travel (especially group travel) brings with it.
Prayer brings healing.
Prayer produces miracles.
Prayer changes the world.
Prayer changes us.
So when you see our needs listed here or elsewhere, please know it’s never just the money or the van or the personnel we need. It’s prayer. Because prayer brings us into intimate connection with the Father, whose ways are the answer to every one of our needs and each one of our requests.
And please know that as you pray for us, we’re praying for you, too. Feel free to share your needs and know we will lift them before the Father.
Because prayer matters. And so do you.
