From the President
September 2015 Prayer Target
When writing to the church he founded in Ephesus, Paul asked the believers there to do something for him:
“And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints. Pray also for me, that whenever I open my mouth, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the Gospel” (Ephesians 6:18-19).
Paul’s request here sets a wonderful example of what our prayer lives should look like. He asks the church first to “keep on praying” in the Spirit for all the saints with “all kinds of prayers and requests.” This instruction alludes to the necessity of a constant flow of prayer for the needs of all our brothers and sisters around the world.
Then, Paul, missionary to the Gentiles, asks that these believers pray specifically for him; that God would give him the courage to preach the Gospel without fear. This request for prayer is especially vital for the ministry of all FEBC workers, many of whom are carrying the Gospel to countries where it is illegal to preach Christ crucified.
Keep praying! Keep asking God to give His workers courage to proclaim the Gospel boldly to the nations that many will come to the knowledge of Christ!
Until all have heard,
