“We had been asking people to pray for quite some time for someone to reach the Arabic-speaking population in our area,” said Cincinnati area pastor Travis Smalley. God sent church planters Amer and Vicky Safadi, and now Arabic speaking people in Cincinnati, and around the world, are hearing the gospel. That’s what prayer can do.
Millions of Southern Baptists like you have faithfully prayed this week for the featured missionaries, their families, their churches and their communities. They are only a few representatives of a larger missionary force. Because of your faithful prayers and giving, every day, throughout North America, there are thousands more workers reaching people across the divides of culture, language and ethnicity with the gospel.
Your prayer support is the vital engine of their ministry. Prayer isn’t the least you can do—it’s the most. Your prayers for North American missionaries are powerful and they don’t have to end this week.
NAMB’s prayer resource, PrayForPlanters.com gives you the opportunity to meet and pray for missionaries in every state and province. You can send notes of encouragement and join a missionary’s prayer team.
Thank you for uniting with your missionaries in prayer which was Jesus’ missional strategy in Luke 10:2. “Pray to the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into His harvest.”
