    Prayer each Thursday 2pm (EDT) GMT-4

    Praying for: Oral and Oral Bible-less Peoples
    Trouble – Open Doors for the Gospel

    Pray with us for Open Doors in the Midst of Trouble: When epidemics or natural disasters strike or trouble the just come to individuals and families, the results can be devastating. Often, in the midst of this difficulty and uncertainty there comes an opening for the Gospel.

    Scripture: “O LORD, my strength and my fortress, my refuge in time of distress, to you the nations will come from the ends of the earth and say, “Our fathers possessed nothing but false gods, worthless idols that did them no good.” -Jeremiah 16:19

    Prayer: Lord, You are the good shepherd. You look after each one of Your children. You are the only safe refuge and fortress in times of trouble.

    Lord, today some of the Oral and Oral Bible-less Peoples are facing trouble they cannot manage. They are in need of Your help. We ask Lord, that You would respond to their need, and come to their aid.

    Use this crisis to introduce them to Your goodness. Allow this difficulty to soften their hearts to Your truth. Give them the grace they need to walk away from the god who has failed them and embrace You as their only Lord and Savior. Open their eyes Lord to see You as the lover of their soul, their refuge, and their fortress. In Jesus name, amen.

    Join this month as we pray united for what God is doing alongside the Orality Network and our network partners.

ION Prayer 90 Days Prayer Initiative

A United Call for Prayer on behalf of all Oral Peoples, Oral Bible-less People Groups, and for those working in Orality/UUPGs & Great Commission Partner groups. -“Devote ourselves to prayer being watchful and thankful… that we may proclaim the mystery of Christ.” (Colossians 4:2-4)

Unite in Prayer

Thirty-five Global Prayer leaders (including the ION Int’l Prayer Director) from seven nations gathered recently to listen to God for His direction; seeking Him together for His strategy to mobilize prayer for the nations and greater strengthening of the Body of Christ.

During our corporate listening time, it was clear through multiple voices that we are living in extraordinary and critical times. We (the Body of Christ) need to be connected to one another relationally and together prepare for what is coming.
