Latest Prayer Target

May 17th

Listeners from South Korea have shared with us that they did not believe in Jesus until their family members became involved with FEBC. As time passed and many prayers were offered, they decided to put their faith in Christ. Praise God for life-changing moments like these and ask for many more to follow.


“The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.” James 5:16b

We know with certainty that when trouble arises, our heartfelt response as followers of Christ is to pray. We seek the Lord and call on Him to intervene and to be with us.

There are times when God answers our prayers by giving increased strength and endurance to persevere through hardships and troubles. At other times, God’s answer is immediate rescue and restoration. Regardless of how God answers our prayers, we know He is with us, and He hears us when we pray.

As James 5:16 states so clearly, “the prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.” We have been made righteous by the sacrifice of Jesus’ blood shed on the cross, and we are joined in relationship with God. Because of this, we offer our prayers with confidence, knowing that much can be accomplished when God’s people pray.

The world may be in turmoil, but God is ever faithful. Thank you for praying!

Until all have heard,
