Join our prayer force, and watch God work!

say-your-prayersWe were so excited to see our support inch up just a bit last week—the same week that ten people committed to pray daily for God’s speeding us to Romania.

This year our mission board has been encouraging its missionaries to grow by studying what the Bible says about prayer and then by putting what we learn into action. One practical suggestion that Biblical Ministries Worldwide has had for all of its missionaries is to build a “prayer force” of 300 people who are committed to doing their best to pray for us everyday. We are excited to announce that as of today seventeen people have committed to do their best to pray for us everyday.

Everyday is a spiritual battle, and we do need your prayers. Early in our pre-field process one of our fellow support raising missionaries and friend, Theo van Reijn (appointee to the Netherlands), pointed out in one of his prayer letters that a missionary must have a “military mindset.” Of course he meant this in the metaphorical sense, but it is a good catch phrase to help us remember that “we  wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in highplaces” (Eph. 6:12). Those rulers of darkness do not want us to take the light of the gospel into their strongholds in Romanian orphanages. And they will do all in their power to slow our support raising progress. We need your prayers!

No field soldier can be effective on a battle field unless he is backed by umpteen support personnel. We are asking you to be our support personnel. Please lift your voices to the one who is greater, “than he that is in the world” (1 John4:4) and speed us to Romania with the power of prayer.

  1. Dear Joshua and Laurel,
    I feel the Lord is leading me to join your prayer force and a commitment to try my best to pray for you, your ministry, and your financial support each and every day. I pray that your support will increase speedily so that you can be on the mission field taking the light of the gospel to the precious children in the Romanian orphanages
    and wherever else the Lord leads you. God bless and protect you as you follow His leading and may He provide all of your needs according to His will.

    In the Holy, precious name of Jesus,
    Martha Horne
