Extreme Prayer - November 11, 2015

My friend Greg Pruett’s most significant contribution might be in the area of “extreme prayer.” In 2008 he assumed the role as president of Pioneer Bible Translators. The recession had sucked dollars out of the economy and confidence out of the public. Resources were few, and donors were disappearing.

Greg knew of only one response: prayer. He says, “That’s when I began to learn not to pray about my strategies, but to make prayer the strategy.” He wrote a half-page letter to his teammates worldwide, calling them to prayer. He urged them to stand before God’s throne with specific and bold requests. They did and the results were astounding.

Maybe God and prayer are all you have too. Respond in prayer—honest, continual, and audacious prayer.
