Women raise their hands in the air and pray during a time of worship in the local church.

Why Prayer Matters

Evangelist D.L. Moody once said:

“Every work of God can be traced to some kneeling form.”

Incredibly, God gives us the privilege of participating in His mission to draw people to Himself. We don’t view prayer as a prelude to the “real” work of His global mission. Prayer is the real work!

Will you be part of God’s mission as an intercessor for Bible translation?

Remember, God hears and responds to prayer. Your intercession makes a difference for eternity—for individuals, families and entire communities around the globe.
