Pray

We have highlighted some of the ways you can pray for different teams and places in the world. Know that your prayers matter – everyday.

Prayer support is foundational to everything we do. You play a critical role as you partner with us in prayer for mission workers overseas, in the United States, and at the U.S. Mobilization Center. We feel the prayers of our partners carrying us.
