Paul wrote to the church in Ephesus, "Pray on every occasion, as the Spirit leads. For this reason, keep alert and never give up; pray always for all God's people." (Eph.6:18 GNB)
We are called to keep on praying whether or not we hear about the 'effects' of our prayers. But what a blessing it is when we hear of what God is doing in response to the prayers of his people.
A few days before writing this column we received news in the Sydney office about how God has recently used GRN recordings made more than 20 years ago in Mali (West Africa) and the Sudan. In Mali, 30 of the men in one village, decided that they wanted to "walk the Jesus road"! In Sudan, the messages were being played through "MegaVoice" audio players, which had survived 'baptism' in the Nile river!
God is at work bringing people and organisations together to enable unreached people to hear His word and be saved.
So keep on praying and be encouraged. God is at work. He is building his kingdom, and "the gates of Hell shall not prevail against it".
Yours in Christ,
