Step One - Prayer
The first step in impacting world missions is to begin praying. Prayer is a wonderful way for the Lord to make missions personal to you. We don't mean a prayer like, "Bless all the missionaries in the world." Instead, we mean the kind of prayer that as you begin to learn more about the nations of the world, people groups, persecution of Christians and the works so that so many are engaged in...you can then begin to pray specifically for needs and for the Lord to complete His work in the earth. Hudson Taylor, the great missionary to China in the late 1800's often said, "When man work, man works; but when man prays, God works."
Friends of the Gospel wants to help you get connected with missionaries, church plants, evangelism efforts and other projects God is doing across the world so that you can effectively pray. Often, missionaries rely more on prayer than they do financial support.
