In no other way can the believer become as fully involved with God’s work, especially the work of world evangelism, as in intercessory prayer.
The most important place we can go on the mission field is to the throne room of grace. Many think missionary service requires vast amounts of money, a willing and welltrained workforce. Many think that missionary work needs slick marketing and promotion. Some think a modern missiology is absolutely essential for the Great Commision to be fulfilled.
Consider the history of the Church. God seems underwhelmed by man’s plans and organizations. In Acts chapter one we witness the dawn of the church. God turns the world upside down through a small group of believers who had no systematic theology, no hymnal, no buildings or budgets, no clergy, liturgy or organization.
When we conform ourselves to His mission, to His guidence, He brings about His work.
The first step to shed our plans and our work in favor is His is to align our hearts and passions with His through intercessory prayer.
May we be found in the throne room of grace! May we be fully involved with God’s work in His way!
Love, The Downing Family
