“I urge you, brothers, by our Lord Jesus Christ…to join me in my struggle by praying to God for me” (Romans 15:30).

To be a missionary in today’s world-

One has to separate himself from the I-want-it-now culture we live in.

Results on the mission field can be slow going!

So it’s not uncommon for missionaries to retire having seen but a handful of conversions during their entire career.

This fact is enough to discourage many people-

– from ever becoming full-time missionaries.

But for those who have heard their Divine calling to missions-

– nothing—not even the lack of apparent progress

– or the constant persecution—can keep them from fulfilling their task.

One reason they are able to push on is that-

– they have Christian brothers and sisters faithfully supporting them through prayer.

Fellow believers!

We should never underestimate the power of our words offered up to God-

– on behalf of the brave souls on the mission field.

God hears those words and grants His workers the ability-

– to remain encouraged and faithful to the cause.

Prayer for our missionaries is tantamount to the work itself!

American missionary Samuel Zwemer once said:

“The history of missions is the history of answered prayer.”

Remember us in your prayers-

– that we grow not weary in well doing!
