From the President
April 2017 Prayer Target
One of the great fathers of the 4th century Church, St. Augustine, once said, “True, whole prayer is nothing but love.” What St. Augustine meant is that if we truly love people, this love will always lead us to prayer. Intercessory prayer, praying on behalf of another, changes our focus; it moves our center of gravity from ourselves and our needs to others and their needs.
All over the world people are facing many of the same problems… spending eternity without Christ, broken marriages, children shattered by divorce, loss of a loved one, a worldwide evil that seems to be gaining in intensity. How should we respond? We must pray! Put feet to your love for people by praying for them.
This kind of prayer is addressed by Paul the Apostle when he encourages the Galatians to, “Bear one another’s burdens for this is the will of God” (Gal. 6:2). When we bear others up in prayer, we are not only making a huge difference in the lives and circumstances of individuals around the globe, we are fulfilling the will of God.
Thank you for your ministry partnership…thank you praying that every man, woman and child will come to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.
Until all have heard,
