Your prayers make a difference. The White Fields staff have translated and published prayer reports and specific stories of the churches we are supporting so you can intercede for them in prayer. The people in the churches are also praying for you. They are giving thanks to God because people they have never met are praying for them and supplying the support that ministers to their needs.
The prayers of the people in these churches giving thanks to God and praying for you is a fulfillment of what the Apostle Paul shared with the church in Corinth:
For the ministry of this service is not only supplying the needs of the saints but is also overflowing in many thanksgivings to God. By their approval of this service, they will glorify God because of your submission that comes from your confession of the gospel of Christ, and the generosity of your contribution for them and for all others, while they long for you and pray for you, because of the surpassing grace of God upon you.2 Corinthians 9:12-14 (ESV)
You don’t need to be standing in a coconut grove, in a distant country, to pray for a pastor. Your prayers make a difference. God is pleased when His people lift up others in intercession before his throne of grace. He hears you making requests for him to open hearts to the message of the gospel, and He answers. You can also ask God to supply the needs of the believers in the churches, and God can provide for their every need. We have a tremendous privilege to intercede on behalf of our fellow Christians around the world. God expressed to us,
Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.Hebrews 4:16 (ESV)
