Prayer Connections


Girl prayingPrayer is the foundation of everything we do at Encompass World Partners. We ask the Lord to send out workers (Luke 10:2). We ask the Lord to grow our ministries (1 Cor 3:7). We recognize our full dependence on Him in everything we do.

We need your prayers to reach those who have never heard the gospel. Will you pray with us and for us?

Here are some resources on prayer that may help you as you pray for our missionaries and their ministries:

Encompass Prayer Guide
An Encompass publication that includes photos, prayer requests and contact information for all our missionaries and ministries.

Every morning Encompass emails a current prayer request to hundreds of people who subscribe to the PrayNow! network.  Would you like to be one of those people who start each day praying for the world? Click here to subscribe.
