What motivates you to pray for mission?
Prayer is the basis and the power source behind missions. Two people in the Bible really inspire me with their prayer life. Abraham is the first person in Scripture who prays for unreached people groups. The father of nations prays for unbelievers in foreign places and intercedes for God’s mercy on Sodom and Gomorrah. God shared something with Abraham that must have given him a sense of God’s heart for the nations.
Thousands of years later, the Apostle Paul is a great role model for us too. His prayer life is captured in his New Testament letters and drives him on in his calling to take the good news of Jesus across cultural barriers. His prayers propelled him as he pioneered to bring Gentiles into the Kingdom of God.
