Welcome to World Mission Prayer League

Skrefsrud QuotationThe 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?

    Pray with us for Waldo Shaw, our team mate, currently in Zambia on route to Malawi and the Bunda farm freeWord project. He is experiencing crippling stomach ailments. This is a huge concern for both Waldo and his wife Emma. Waldo has diabetes and this is playing havoc with attempts to regulate his sugar. Father, please pour out Your healing mercy, Your saving grace and heavenly wisom upon the Shaws as they continue to travel and deal with this severe stomach condition. To God be the glory.

    We been tested by the enemy just to put our faith down. God blessed us in March 2012 with a used car that we used for over two years. Now the situation is worse because every two weeks the vehicule present problems for repair and its burning our budget. We are so tied reparing it. The work we do need personal transportation and also for the security reason. Please pray that may God strenghten our faith and give us wisdom of what to do next.

    Lord, we ask that you might guide and provide for your servants in this situation.

    This Sunday Hindus in India will be celebrating a festival called Ganesh Chaturthi. This festival honors Lord Ganesh, the symbol of wisdom, prosperity and good fortune. May the people of India turn from their idols and find life in the one true, living God.

    Reveal Yourself, Lord – make Yourself known. May Your Spirit move into the hearts of Hindus, that they would come to know You as the One True God.

    Lord, we pray for the Hindus of India. We pray that the Holy Spirit will help them realize that all of those things (wisdom, prosperity & good fortune) and many more are from You & You alone, God! I also pray for Becca, that she will demonstrate a life that honors you & shows the Hindus the freedom she has in Christ. Amen.

What is the Father Doing?

As Dieter, Angi, Jarryd, Ashley (currently studying law at Bethel University, Minn.) and Judah continue along our journey of pioneering a work in Malawi, we are persuaded that the most effective way of doing this is to be guided by asking the question, WHAT IS GOD UP TO? then keeping an eye out for His work, recognising what He might be doing and consequently doing whatever it takes to join Him. This sure seems to be scripturally ... [Continue Reading]

Serving the Needy in Guayaquil

Dear Fellows in the Lord, In my last prayer letter I mentioned the ‘Service Day’ promoted by REDI (the Diaconal Evangelical Network) and coordinated by Paz y Esperanza. The event took place on August 30, 2014 with a great success. The network of twenty evangelical institutions met their goal of providing holistic, multidisciplinary assistance to approximately 4,000 at-risk people in 4 sectors and 7 hospitals in the city of Guayaquil, Ecuador. Those served included: children ... [Continue Reading]
Gathering for morning prayer in Minneapolis.

Morning & Evening Prayer

This morning, we gathered once again for prayer at the home offices in Minneapolis – nearly twenty of us. We dedicate every Monday’s prayer time to hearing the stories that lie behind great hymns of the faith. Today’s story was of Sabine Baring-Gould and his children’s hymn Now the Day is Over. This hymn was birthed in song among a house-church community that had burst the seams of Sabine’s apartment. Jesus, give the weary Calm and sweet repose; With Thy tend’rest ... [Continue Reading]

Missionary Compensation

In July we paid our missionaries 100 percent of their target allowance. This marked the 24th consecutive month in which full allowances were paid, overseas and in the Home Office. This is the longest period of “full allowance” during my time of service as Business Manager, and we are all very thankful for God’s provision. Here is a quick look at what it means to pay full allowance and how it happens. In a typical ... [Continue Reading]

Getting Our Callings Right …

A few weeks ago we completed our annual Missionary Candidates’ Briefing Course. Fifteen candidates and missionary inquirers from here and there around the country (and a few from elsewhere in the world) gathered at our offices on Clifton Avenue. We spent nearly a month together – in lively dialogue about kingdom ambitions, missionary commissions, strategic futures, effective training, preparation, and many other things. It has set me to thinking about callings. There are so many ... [Continue Reading]
Supposed Footprint of Jesus

On the Mount of Ascension

Near the end of our recent visit to the Holy Land, we made our way to the Chapel of the Ascension, in the At-Tur district of Jerusalem. I anticipated the stop with considerable eagerness. Here Jesus issued marching orders that would inspire such daring as the world had seldom seen, such praying and obedience, such giving and sacrifice as to turn the world itself upside down. “You will be my witnesses,” he announced to his ...
