CMS Prayer Focus

Thank you for your participation in CMS Prayer Focus 2021!

Why we pray

Ever since New Testament times, Christians have come together to pray to our great God, to thank him for what he has done for us, and to ask him to graciously continue to work in this world for his glory.

Prayer is essential to God’s mission and to the work of CMS. It is a privilege that reminds us of God’s incredible relational love for his people, of how much we need him, how worthy he is of our praise, and how faithfully he works in our lives and our world.

In 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, Paul writes “Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

Prayer connects the local churches of our Lord Jesus Christ with his purpose of bringing salvation to all nations, tribes and people groups. A Christian church must therefore be a praying church. We long to see people committed to praying regularly and deeply for God’s mission both locally, and throughout the world.
