Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry aloud: and he shall hear my voice – Psalm 55:17
Nothing is more powerful than prayer. Sister Mary knows that and that is why she is such a prayer warrior. After meeting Jesus more than 10 years ago, Sister Mary has shared His love with her community by praying for the sick and suffering. Sister Mary reminds me of Dorcas who showed the Lord’s love by sewing garments for widows in her community. God uses humble people like Dorcas and Sister Mary to change lives. He has used Sister Mary’s prayers to change hearts. Watch this video to see what made a simple village woman become a powerful witness for God.
God can use you too to change lives. There are so many people in the world who need our prayers but here is a list provided by Gospel for Asia to get you started:
Widows. The treatment of widows in South Asia is unimaginably horrific.
+ Abandoned Children. Countless children in Asia have been discarded and abused, but they are not forgotten.
+ Asia’s Youth. Did you know that 40 percent of India’s 1 billion people are under the age of 18?
+ National Missionaries. Everyday people who love the Lord and rely on Him for help as they give their lives to further God’s Kingdom.

Blessed be God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble by the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God – 2 Corinthians 1:3, 4
Sister Mary knows what it is like to suffer and that is why she is telling the sick and the suffering how she personally experienced God’s power of healing. Is there something that God has done in your life that you would like others to experience too? Pray about it and watch God work in mighty ways. Effective, persistent and faith driven prayers can move mountains. When Sister Mary prays, God hears and He acts. The same can happen for you. Go before the throne of grace with your list and with thanksgiving, offer up your petitions and the God who is faithful will hear and attend to them.
For the eyes of the LORD are on the righteous, And His ears are open to their prayers – 1 Peter 3:12
