In Romania, Christians have asked the same question believers around the world ask: “What can we do?” They see abandoned mothers, sexually trafficked girls and impoverished families. Beyond the country’s borders, they see a world of suffering so harsh that the more conservative among them can’t bear to keep looking.
But the TWR Women of Hope Romania team has found purpose and direction amid their own struggles. “Through prayer, we believe that we can change the world for the better. Through radio broadcasts, we can give our Romanian women encouragement and teaching. Through our deeds of faith, we can offer hope to those in distress.”
The number of individuals receiving the prayer calendar each month nearly tripled last year. It hardly seemed possible when 70 intercessors joined the groups in one quarter, yet following that, 63 more were added in only a month. And every month, those Romanian men and women pray through those calendars, even praying for you, their partner in faith.
“I love to pray for the Lord’s ministries,” says one prayer warrior. “The calendar helps me to receive updated and specific information about women around the world. I cannot go abroad, but I can pray for those who are doing the Lord’s work. Through prayer, I can go anywhere. God sees everything, for the earth is his, but he is looking for intercessors.”
What many women face around the world is distressing, yet our walk is by faith. Even when you feel you can’t bear what you see happening in this world, you can choose to travel on your knees in prayer.
