July 2015 Prayer Target
James Hudson Taylor, the great British missionary to China during the 1800s, once said of prayer:
“The prayer power has never been tried to its full capacity. If we want to see mighty wonders of divine power and grace wrought in the place of weakness, failure and disappointment, let us answer God’s standing challenge, ‘Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things which thou knowest not!’” (Jeremiah 33:3) KJV
God did wonderful things, indeed!
In the 51 years Taylor spent in China, the mission society he founded was responsible for bringing over 800 missionaries to the country, who began 125 schools that resulted in 18,000 Christian conversions.
In 1945 the Lord called Bob Bowman and John Broger to start FEBC with a vision to reach China for Christ. It was James Hudson Taylor, II, grandson of James Hudson Taylor, who paved the way with the Chinese government to help Bob Bowman establish the ministry of FEBC in China. Isn’t the Lord amazing?
When the work of missions is saturated with prayer, God promises to do “great and mighty things.”
Thank you for praying and calling out to the Lord on behalf of FEBC. I can’t wait to see the “great and mighty things” He is going to do!
Until all have heard,
