The Little Boy Who Prayed

 

Years ago, a five-year-old boy heard a missionary speak about all the people in the world who didn't have God's Word. He decided he wanted to pray for one of these language communities, so he began praying each Sunday afternoon for God to send missionaries to the Rapa Nui people on Easter Island. His mom and dad would smile each time they heard his fervent prayer.

Finally a Wycliffe friend of theirs reported that he was assigning translators to serve the Rapa Nui! The little boy started writing to the translators and then began selling stationery so he could give them some of his profits. His parents later discovered that the missionaries had become interested in this people around the time their son began praying.

Even the youngest intercessor can make a big difference in the world.

Thank You, Jesus, that the consistent prayer of all ages accomplishes much!

"Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think" (Ephesians 3:20 NLT).
