Welcome to World Mission Prayer League


And he said to them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few.
Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.

    Pray for Jesus to be seen as the reason for the Christmas season. I have seen thousands of displays of Christmas decorations in a variety of stores and find very little evidence of Jesus. It took a concentrated effort by myself and my sisters to locate anything pertaining to Jesus. You can find Barbie Christmas, Santa, snowmen, Transformers, Hello Kitty, etc but very little about Jesus. Pray for His presence to be known during this Advent season.

    So, this is what Angi and I have come to call a 'push notification' within our circle of prayers. PUSH meaning Pray Until Something Happens... This is an invitation for you to PUSH with us. Today we are PUSHING with respect to our car license/registration documents. We have received incomplete documentation... and so we pray that the correct paperwork would be expedited to us and that God, the ever wakeful watchman would have His eye on all the couriership required to make this happen in a timely way, for we know that this car is simply a 'vehicle' enabling us to be better givers and sowers of the good Word. Thanks also to our PUSH team.

    Continue prayers from MN. How have things been progressing?

    Praying with you every day. I like the acronym PUSH. That is prayer that perseveres.

    The big Hindu festival of Dasai is coming up this next week. Uncounted animals will be sacrificed on the big day with their blood spurting onto idols. Pray for the believers to be strong and yet still love their families during this time.

Why the Three-Self Patriotic Movement in China?

I was recently asked if there is a uniquely “Chinese” theology & practice. James E. Plueddeman served as the SIM international director for many years and taught at Wheaton. On page 56 of his book, Leading Across Cultures, he writes: Contextualizing theology is impossible without the development of leaders. Over a hundred and fifty years ago Rufus Anderson and Henry Venn proposed that mature churches are characterized as self-propagating, self-supporting and self-governing. The late professor ...

Not Just Another Empty Promise

As I fold/crumple up our tent with the missing tent poles in the rain, splash about competing against the broken remote arming system of our car while trying to keep my down duvet dry and then finally climb in under the open sun roof only to find it won’t start, because I was charging my iPad so that I could write something to you. That happened, I take another deep breath and wonder to myself, ... [Continue Reading]

The Angel Appearing to the Shepherds by Thomas Cole.

Telling the Story

When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them. (Luke 2:17,18, NIV) There are a few experiences in our lives that we cannot help but share with others. When I lived in southern California, earthquakes were like that. Each time there was an earthquake we all shared our “earthquake experience” with everyone ... [Continue Reading]

The Incarnation is so very many things. There are so many other things, of course, that it is not. The Incarnation, in particular, is about God become a human being – and not the other way around. The Incarnation is about the Son of God pouring himself out, taking on human flesh, assuming the form of a servant and becoming obedient unto death (Philippians 2:5-11). It is about the Word made flesh come now to ... [Continue Reading]

One in One Hundred

Here is yet another way we get our callings wrong. We think them rare, or heroic, or extraordinary. We think them exceptional, somehow unique, almost beyond belief. Like winning the lottery, maybe. Or coming down with an unusual, life-changing disease. Yet if we think missionary callings extraordinary, we have misunderstood the callings of God. You are called by God into the mission of God in the world. So am I. “If anyone is in Christ, ... [Continue Reading]
