Pray for the world

It is a privilege to be part of the transforming work of praying for the nations of our world. The links below will direct you to different regions around the world and will enable you to learn more about where CMS missionaries serve, so that you can also pray more specifically for those locations.

You might like to direct your church members to these pages to fuel their prayers, or use them to provide context to the locations where your link missionaries work.

Thank you for praying with us as together we seek to see a world that knows Jesus!

“Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”


1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
