A small party of missionaries
were invited to go to Tibet at a
time when missionary activity
was forbidden there. They were
told their task was to help stem
the tide of a plague that was
raging out of control. When the
plague was over, the
government asked the
missionaries to leave. But
these servants of Christ felt a
responsibility to minister to the
souls of the Tibetans as well as
to their bodies. The authorities
threatened to kill them, but the
fear of death did not deter
them from their purpose. They
stayed on.

One night the Tibetans
encircled their house with
flaming torches. They began
dancing around in a wide circle,
ever diminishing in size
seeking to achieve their aim of
setting the place ablaze. The
missionaries fell to their knees
in prayer, and became so intent
as the wild chanting came it
had ceased.

When they arose, the mob had
dispersed, and they were
allowed to remain. Years later,
one of their converts told them
that he had been in the circle
of evil doers, and they had
every intention of burning the
missionaries to death in their
house. However, as they
approached the dwelling, there
stood before the door a figure
in white apparel holding a
flaming sword!

They fled in fright. And thus the
door was opened for the
gospel in Tibet, because God
honored the faith of those who
were willing to die at any time
for their Lord.

Colossians 4:2
Be earnest and unwearied and steadfast in your prayer life, being both alert and intent in your praying, with thanksgiving.  
We will  pray for your prayer request, but we cannot
guarantee that we will be able to answer each
prayer request individually due to the high demand
in workload and time factor required in this ministry.
The Power of Prayer
Matthew 7:7-8
Keep on asking and it will be given you; keep on
seeking and you will find;keep on knocking
[reverently] and [the door] will be opened to you. 8
For everyone who keeps on asking receives; and he
who keeps on seeking finds; and to him who keeps on
knocking, [the door] will be opened.

Prayer is a golden key, which should open the
morning and lock up the evening.

Prayer will make a man cease from sin, or sin will entice a
man to cease from prayer.

—John Bunyan
Prayer Is Our Best Weapon!
In the midst of a multitude of activities we must let nothing
encroach upon our prayer time.  The devil will allow us to be as
busy as we please if only he can cause us to remain
prayerlessly  busy!  He knows he has no counter-weapon
against prayer.  Keep your prayer time with all diligence.
