The Power of Prayer: Strengthening Mission Work Through Intercession
Global Disciples Canada encourages individuals and churches to partner in prayer for local leaders, missionaries, and communities they serve. By prayer & intercession, we support those on the frontlines while unleashing the power of God to move in remarkable ways.

In fact, prayer is an essential part of our Christian journey. It has the extraordinary potential to change lives and impact the world. Prayer serves as a vital cornerstone, guiding, sustaining, and empowering our efforts in sharing the Gospel with the least-reached communities.

1. Join a prayer team: Commit to regular intercession and stay informed about the current needs and victories in global missions.
2. Partner with a missionary: Develop a personal connection with a missionary or a local leader serving in a least-reached community. Take time to learn about their work, their needs, and their challenges, and commit to praying for their ministry regularly.
3. Set aside dedicated prayer time: . Consider setting a reminder in your calendar or phone to help you remain consistent in your prayer commitment.

Embracing the Power of Prayer in Global Missions
Friend, we hold the incredible privilege of partnering with organizations like Global Disciples Canada.
Through prayer, we are helping to advance the Gospel, and sharing Christ’s love with least-reached communities.
As we devote time and energy to intercession, we become an integral part of a larger mission. A mission that sees barriers broken, lives transformed, and entire communities uplifted in the love and hope of Jesus.
Global Disciples Canada is a Christian mission organization that trains local leaders living near to reach least-reached communities to multiply disciples for Christ. One third of our world hasn’t heard the Good News of Jesus. Yet, Global Disciples refers to these as “least-reached” people, and fewer than 10% of all missionaries work among these groups. We live in a time where many of these people are within reach of a local church. Through our simple and effective strategy of training and coaching, believers share the Gospel in their own nations and cultures. Jesus said, “Go and make disciples of all nations,” and we’re committed to doing just that. If you are looking for a Christian mission organization to partner with to become a better disciple and help make disciples, connect with us today!
