Vision Beyond Borders is serving in more than 20 countries around the world. The most frequent request we receive from the persecuted church is for prayer. I had the opportunity to meet with a pastor in China who had spent more than 20 years in prison for his faith. As I stood before this humble man, I asked what I could do to help. His reply was, "First, please pray for us. There is much persecution here and many of our leaders are in prison, and please bring Bibles. We need God's Word."
The needs are tremendous. At times the needs are so overwhelming that I am not sure whether we can really make a difference, yet at these times I am reminded our strongest position is on our knees. I am humbled and reminded that I am to pray; to cry out on these people's behalf and then respond to the Lord's calling. In our weakness and inadequacy, we are strong as we fall to our knees in prayer.
I believe God has used and continues to use this ministry through the prayers of His people. We eagerly seek people who are willing to pray on behalf of the ministry and have heard from people all over the world who are praying for us! What an encouragement that is! Our teams consistently report they can literally feel the prayer coverage as they cross the closed borders with the Word of God. It is incredible to hear how God has miraculously concealed this precious cargo in response to those prayers.
Sign up to receive prayer and praise updates from the ministry. Prayer and the Word of God are our mighty weapons, and we are grateful for the faithful prayer support of the Believers. We pray these updates will also encourage you in your faith as you hear the testimonies of how God has moved in response to your prayers!
