“Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.”

– Romans 12:12

The work of justice begins with prayer. As we seek justice on behalf of others, we rely on an all-powerful God to help us do what is only possible with and through him. We rely on the support of our global prayer partners and prayer communities as we work in areas of great darkness and serve those in desperate need of rescue and restoration. Join thousands of people committed to seeking justice through prayer.
