In his book ‘Touch the World through Prayer’, Dr Wesley Duewel commented that: “God has planned for ordinary Christians like you and me to become mighty in prayer for blessing and salvation of people and a reaping of Christ’s harvest among the nations today.” He further comments that: “Prayer is the greatest resource of the church …. You yourself can influence more people for God and have a greater role in advancing Christ’s cause by prayer than in any other way.”
It is against this background that the “TOUCH IRELAND THROUGH PRAYER” initiative has been birthed.

We trust as you join in this prayer initiative you will be blessed and that many will come to know Christ as personal Lord and Saviour and that churches will be strategically planted as a result of your prayers. We pray that God will be glorified and that the name of our Lord Jesus Christ will be uplifted as you pray intentionally for the people of Ireland.
