The world has more than 7 billion people! God is asking OMS and its mission partners to help share the Good News of Jesus with 1 billion people by the year 2026. We need your help! Read below to find ways to prayer and how you can get involved too!
God loves you, and he also loves all of the BILLIONS of people in the world. In fact, God wants everyone to have the opportunity to hear, understand, and believe in Jesus. But how can people hear the Good News if no one will tell them? That's where you can help! You see, God has a special job for all of us to do to help reach the BILLIONS. Using the word BILLIONS, you can easily remember how to pray and do your part in helping to complete the One Mission.
Mr. Jason & Aunt Lora
Believe God will use me.
John 14:12- Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I am going to the Father.
Dear Heavenly Father, I believe that you want to use me to share your Good News. I believe that you will be with me and will help me as I do my part. Use my life to help reach my friends and family for you.
Invite others to know Jesus.
John 1:41, 42b- He first found his own brother Simon and said to him, “We have found the Messiah” (which means Christ). He brought him to Jesus.
Dear Jesus, thank you that you have placed people in my life who still need to know you just as I have come to know you. Help me to have the courage to invite them to receive you as their Savior, too.
Love others like Jesus does.
John 13:34- A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.
Dear God, because of your great love, you have
forgiven me and made me your child. This is such an amazing gift, and I want everyone to know about it.
Loving, like you do, is just one way I choose to do this.
Let God's light shine through me.
Matthew 5:16- In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.
Dear Lord, as your child, you say I am like a light. When I love like you love and obey your Word, I know others can see you and come to know you. Please show me ways I can shine more brightly for you today.
Invest my time, talents, and treasures.
Matthew 6:21- For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
Dear Jesus, you gave everything for me when you left heaven to show me your love. I, too, want to give so that others will know you. Teach me how to use my time, talents, and treasures to reach the lost.
Obey God's commands.
John 15:14- You are my friends if you do what I command you.
Dear God, thank you for giving me the Bible to help me live right. I know you can use my actions to help others better understand how you can help them too. I will choose to obey you so that others will know you.
Need to ask God for help.
Psalm 121:2- My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.
Dear Heavenly Father, reaching billions of people with your love and light is a big job. I know we can’t do it without your help. Please give me the strength and courage I need every day to do my part.
Share what God did for me.
Psalm 71:15- My mouth will tell of your righteous acts, of your deeds of salvation all the day, for their number is past my knowledge.
Dear Lord, not only did you save me from my sins, but you keep doing great things in my life every day. Help me to tell others what you have done for me and share how you want to do great things for them too.
Beyond praying for God to reach the billions of people around the world, you can do your part too. How? By reaching out to one person at a time.
How many people do you think live in your town?
There are more than 46 million people living in Spain. Even if you live in a big city, there aren't that many people in your town! But did you know that the people where you live and the people who live in Spain have something in common?
That is why praying for people all over the world to hear, understand and believe the Gospel is one way you can help us reach ONE Billion people for Jesus.
Every day we can pray that people everywhere who have never heard about Jesus will hear
the Gospel for the first time!
How many languages can you speak?
More than 10.6 million people live in Haiti and speak a language called Creole. Haitian Creole is a unique blend of French and several West African languages. It is pretty amazing to think that Creole is just one of the 7,000+ languages in the world!
And although you might not be able to speak them all, you can pray that God will help people to hear, understand, and believe the Gospel in whatever language they speak.
When you pray, you will be part of helping us reach more than ONE Billion people for Jesus.
Let's pray that people of all languages will understand the Gospel!
