“The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.” James 5:16
“Ask of Me, and I will give you the nations for your inheritance, and the ends of the earth for your possession.” Psalm 2:8
We are commanded in scripture to “pray without ceasing” and to be “instant in prayer.” How wonderful to know that God moves in response to the prayers of His people. Although we may not be able to visit other countries in person, we can visit them in prayer. God wants us to become informed “World Christians.” By our intercessory prayers He may change the course of nations and draw countless men, women and children to Himself. There are many resources available to acquaint yourself with prayer needs around the world. Several are listed below.
