Every step in the progress of missions is directly traceable to prayer.
In Acts chapter six the Apostles had to choose Between a very important ministry and the ministry of prayer, they chose prayer along with the ministry of the Word. They realized that even the best ministry should not rob time away from prayer.
We often approach the Divine in prayer and think our prayers will surely change Him. But in reality when we spend time before the Throne Room of Grace our prayers change us.
Every great leap forward on the mission field is due to prayer. God is still active in the lives of his children. Let us not neglect time spent with our Heavenly Father. Approach God in prayer, ask what you will, listen to His leading and obey Him.
May we be a praying people. May our lives display prayer’s indelible mark!
Love, The Downings
