7 Ways to Pray for Translation and Linguistics Ministries [July Prayer Focus]

7 Ways to Pray for Translation and Linguistics Ministries [July Prayer Focus]
Millions of people around the world can't read the Gospel in their own language. That's why we're praying for translation and linguistics ministries around the world this month. Photo by TEAM

The ability to read the Truth in your own language is a powerful experience, but around 200 million people around the world don’t have any Scripture in their native tongue. Further, many evangelistic materials are written in English or other widely-spoken languages, making them unusable for missionaries serving in remote areas with uncommon native tongues. Part of the Christian’s calling is to take the Gospel “into all the world” (Mark 16:15). And part of this command means making sure all people groups can study the Truth for themselves. Because of this, many missionaries have dedicated their lives to translating the…

7 Ways to Pray for Sports and Recreation Ministries [June Prayer Focus]

From basketball to rock climbing, sports and recreation ministries bring people together and open incredible doors for the Gospel! Discover seven ways you can pray for Christ to be known through these ministries this month. Photo by TEAM

There’s a reason your VBS program has a game time: Fun things attract people, even if you make them listen to a lesson first. But sports and recreation ministry is much more than getting people to sit down for a devotional. When you coach a team, you get to teach discipline from a biblical perspective. When you counsel a camper, you get to pray with them about their struggles. When you organize kayaking trips, you get to spend hours talking about God. Recreation lets people bond in a non-threatening way, which opens incredible doors for the Gospel! This month, will…

Ever since Jesus started telling parables, His followers have known how effectively stories can point people to God. Stories encourage us to let down our guards. They let us see God in ways our stubborn, skeptic hearts couldn’t otherwise.

6 Ways to Pray for Creation Care Ministries [April Prayer Focus]

pray for creation care
Missionaries are caring for the planet to teach people about the God who made it. Will you pray for them?

Whether it’s ruined soil, contaminated water or disease caused by piled up garbage, there’s no doubt that environmental destruction hurts people deeply. In the midst of that hurt, many people doubt God’s power, His love or that He even exists. That’s why missionaries around the world are shining a light on God’s handiwork through creation care ministries. By teaching sustainable farming methods, cleaning beaches and more, missionaries get to show how faithfully God has provided for our physical needs — and that opens doors to share about the eternal life He offers all of us. This April, will you pray…

Not every country wants a missionary, but most want economic growth. Not everyone wants to hear the gospel, but many will welcome friendly conversation over a cup of coffee. That’s why missionaries around the world are starting businesses. Whether it’s a coffee shop or a cultural center, businesses let missionaries boldly enter communities where they weren’t welcome before. And they provide a neutral environment where seekers can hear the gospel without the intimidation of entering a church building. This March, will you pray for missional businesses around the world?

“If one of you says to them, ‘Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,’ but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it?” James 2:16 (NIV) Jesus came to give us hope that surpasses all physical need. Yet over and over, his word tells us to care for the poor, to seek justice for the oppressed and to love others as ourselves. Around the world, missionaries are obeying these commands by providing physical aid while sharing about the love of Jesus Christ. This February, will you pray with us for social justice ministries around the world? Click…
