What does it mean to take on a prayer partnership for an OMF missionary?
Our missionaries share the good news of Jesus Christ in all its fullness with East Asia’s peoples to the glory of God. Yet, they cannot do this alone.
Missionaries need spiritual companions. These are people and churches who commit themselves to a prayer partnership with them.
In the Bible, prayer and missions are closely linked together.
„As for other matters, brothers and sisters, pray for us that the message of the Lord may spread rapidly and be honored, just as it was with you. And pray that we may be delivered from wicked and evil people, for not everyone has faith (2 Thessalonians 3,1+2. NIV)
That is why OMF Germany places great importance on each worker being supported by
- one or more sending churches and
- about 30 personal prayer partners.
Become a prayer partner!
Even though you may never personally work in Asia yourself, you are involved in OMF’s work through your prayers.
What does a prayer partnership look like?
Together with the OMF worker, you become a team through your prayers. You will be informed regularly, at least ten times a year, about:
- the ministry in general
- personal and family news
- special prayer requests
You agree to pray regularly for these requests.
Because prayer is so important for the work of our workers, we kindly ask you to affirm this commitment with your signature.
It is important to keep the prayer information confidential so that it can be written openly.
About every four years you can renew or end your participation. Of course you can end the prayer partnership at any time. In this case, please send a short message to the worker.
No spiritual breakthroughs without focused prayer
„We have all eternity to celebrate victories, but only a few hours until dawn to win them. However, we don’t win as we should because we too rarely tell you about our setbacks and because of that we get too little support because people don’t understand us. That’s why we try to tell you the truth – the boring, unromantic truth.” – Amy Carmichael
