prayingguy lrJesus commanded us to pray that God’s will would be done on earth as it is in heaven (Matthew 6:10). As we work in YWAM to see the fulfillment of God’s loving purposes for the world, we ask you to please stand with us in prayer.

Please join us for YWAM’s global prayer days, called The Invitation. To sign up for The Invitation emails, just enter your address in the Stay Connected box at the bottom of the right-hand column and press “Sign Up.” Please also visit The Invitation’s home page to read about prayer topics. On this page, you can also access translations in Spanish, Portuguese, French, and Indonesian. Please also go to YWAM’s Facebook page and like it so you can join in with The Invitation’s prayer conversation.

As you pray, ask God to lead you. One of YWAM’s values is to listen to God, not only to speak to Him. If you would like some general ideas about how to pray for YWAM, we ask you to pray:

  • For the countries we work in. View our map or use the “Locations” section of our search bar to find the places where we do ministry. For security reasons, some countries where we work won’t be mentioned. Pray for the leaders of nations (1 Timothy 2:1-4), or for current events there. If God has placed a certain country on your heart, one good way to stay informed is to use Google Alerts or to buy the book Operation World.
  • That God would send forth more workers (Luke 10:2) who will make Him known in YWAM, in other agencies, in churches, and in communities where the good news has not yet been proclaimed. Pray for the equipping, enabling, and financial support of those workers.
  • For the persecuted believers in many nations, and for freedom of religion in those places.

If you have a prayer request, or if you would like to know about specific prayer requests in YWAM, please visit YWAM’s Facebook page. You can post requests or pray for needs mentioned there.
