World Prayer Today

Know the thrill of answered prayer

May 07, 2020

“Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.” -1 John 5:14

One of the joys of being on the World Prayer Team is seeing how God answers our prayers. The letters we receive each day from around the world are a shining testimony that God does indeed hear us and respond. A team member named Jackie from San Diego, California, puts it like this:

“Prayer has always been a mystery to me. I never knew if my prayers were quite right, or if they mattered. I joined the World Prayer Team in hopes of being more disciplined and discovering joy as I spent time with Lord. And while I did realize both those things, what I didn’t expect was the thrill of seeing Him answer our prayers in the lives of others.

“I feel such gladness when I hear the stories of new brothers and sisters joining us, especially from countries like Iran and Iraq. I now pray with confidence, knowing my prayers are aligned with God’s heart.”

And as you pray today, ask the Lord to fill our team with many new members from around the world.

Let’s wrap up our week with more praise and prayer tomorrow.
