Dear Global Intercessory Prayer Partner,
You are a blessing to me, and I thank you for uniting in prayer with us here at Word Ministries. It is amazing to me that God chose to include us in His plans for mankind.
The Life Application Bible Notes gives us insight on First Timothy 2:1-4:
- Although God is all-powerful and all-knowing, he has chosen to let us help him change the world through our prayers. How this works is a mystery to us because of our limited understanding, but it is a reality. Paul urges us to pray for each other and for our leaders in government. Our earnest prayers will have powerful results (James 5:16).

As more Christian believers unite with us, our symphony of prayer is becoming stronger. Together we are filling the heavens by praying prayers that avail much; building a powerful fortress that is holding back the enemy. We are the enforcers of the triumphant victory of our Lord Jesus Christ!
Loving in Jesus’ Name,
Your Prayer Partner
