Prayer is our greatest mobilization strategy.
Psalm 2:8 says, “Ask of me, and I will make the nations your inheritance, and the ends of the earth your possession” (ESV).
Andrew Murray, a 19th century Scottish missionary and spiritual giant of prayer, famously said, “The man who mobilizes the Christian church to pray will make the greatest contribution to world evangelization in history.”
Prayer is not just one of many strategies for fulfilling the Great Commission and planting churches. It is the strategy. And if prayer is the primary critical success factor for the advancement of God’s kingdom in this world, then everything we do is contingent upon having a powerful private and public prayer life.
Thank you for joining us in prayer for Summit missionaries and church planters serving around the world, the persecuted church, unreached people groups, and our own church’s involvement in the Great Commission. Whether you are praying as a small group, during one of our weekend services, or together as a family, we hope the following resources guide and encourage you as you pray for our world.
