Welcome to World Mission Prayer League

Header_HomepageThe World Mission Prayer League is a Lutheran community committed to know Christ, pray for the advance of His kingdom, share the gospel and ourselves with those who do not know Him, and encourage Christians everywhere in this global task. Prayer is our working method.

We embrace a rich heritage that flows from the passionate witness of Christians faithful to the call of Jesus.  Our ministry realizes the vision of Ernest Weinhardt to bring the Good News into the heart of Africa, Asia, and Latin America.  The World Mission Prayer League consists of some 6,000 committed and praying members.  WMPL has over 100 missionaries in 20+ countries.

“We must have it as our aim to bring the gospel to the very last man. Wherever there are people who have not heard the gospel, to them we must go, no matter how few in number they may be.” – Ernest Weinhardt, WMPL Founder

Let us join you in your call to carry out the commission of Christ. What’s your next step?

Some dear old friends of ours have recently gifted us with tickets to Israel – just now, in the first days of Lent. I can hardly believe the generosity! We returned from our pilgrimage a few days ago. Let me share with you a few reflections. On our first day ... [Continue Reading]

Just Tell Them About Jesus

About three years ago I slipped into a meeting of Twin Cities pastors to hear a well known and somewhat controversial systematic theologian speak on the topic, Preaching Christ In An Age of Religious Pluralism. An inner-city pastor asked, “Should I really be trying to convert the Asian Buddhists who ... [Continue Reading]

God’s System of Justice

“But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8) In April 1992 California was preparing for its first execution in 25 years.

Pleasingly Uneventful

The year 2013 was an interesting year for World Mission Prayer League finances – not for its remarkable occurrences, but rather for the lack of them. Most years contain some sort of drama that we would probably rather avoid. But last year was mostly uneventful, in a good and restful ... [Continue Reading]

Patrick!

I have recently read a psalm that called to mind a date in March, that reminded me of a singular, passionate teenager in old Ireland and his radical conversion to Christ, his irresistible calling to mission, and the evangelistic movement that followed him and reached across a continent. Patrick (ca. ... [Continue Reading]

Why Serve?

For the first time in the history of planet earth, the Christian church is a truly global phenomenon. And it is not barely global, either.

“Huh…?”

A few days ago, I stumbled upon an interesting report from the world of psycholinguistics. It had to do with “universal words.” It turns out that “mommy,” or something rather like it, appears in many languages around the world. This is what my grandchildren call their mother here in Minneapolis. ... [Continue Reading]

Abstraction Not Allowed

Not long ago, a friend of mine reported that she had become “spiritual” — but was no longer “religious.” She thinks “spiritual” thoughts from time to time, she explained. She notices “spiritual” attitudes or impulses creeping up on her, in a general sort of way. She feels oddly warm at ... [Continue Reading]
