Let us be Great Commission Prayer Warriors Together!

Matthew 28:19-20

May 20, 2024

Prayer is a cornerstone of our faith, a direct line of communication with our Heavenly Father.

As we continue to our meditation on world missions this week, let’s take a moment to reflect on the words of Andrew Murray, who once said that the cause of the missionary problem is prayerlessness. These words hold a powerful truth that we can all learn from and act upon.

Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” (Mt 28:19-20)

Prayer is a cornerstone of our faith, a direct line of communication with our Heavenly Father. When we pray for missions, we are not just whispering words into the air; we are engaging in a powerful act of faith that can move mountains and change lives.
Imagine the impact we can have as a church body whether individually or if we come together in prayer for missions. Our prayers can reach the far corners of the earth, touching the hearts of those who have yet to hear the Good News. Through prayer, we can support missionaries, strengthen their resolve, and uplift them in times of doubt or struggle.
Let’s make a commitment to prioritize prayer for missions in our daily lives. Whether it’s a few minutes in the morning, a prayer before meals, or a dedicated time each week, let’s carve out space in our hearts to intercede for missions work around the world.
Remember, prayer is not just about asking for things; it’s also about listening to God’s voice and aligning our hearts with His will. As we pray for missions, let’s also open our hearts to hear how God may be calling us to participate in His work, whether through giving, going, or simply being a light in our own communities.
Together, we can be a powerhouse of prayer, sending forth waves of love and support to those who are on the front lines of spreading the Gospel. Let’s be a church known for our fervent prayers, our unwavering faith, and our deep commitment to seeing God’s Kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven.
So, let’s rise up, church family! Let’s be a people of prayer, a people of action, and a people who believe in the transformative power of God’s love. Together, let’s make a difference in the world through the simple yet profound act of prayer.
Blessings to you all as we embark on this prayer journey together.
