“I cannot think
that God’s heart can be satisfied with the salvation of just a few when his
great heart yearns over the millions.” ~Charles Cowman,
cofounder of One Mission Society
Charles Cowman wrote these powerful words years ago, but they
still ring true in OMS today. Aligning with our Billion.Global Vision, we are
not content merely reaching just a few. We know that God's heart yearns to be
known and loved by everyone. So, we continue to press forward in our vision to
reach at least one billion people with the Gospel by July 2026.
To accomplish this
vision, prayer is key. Prayer allows us to grow together and, in turn, grow the
body of Christ. Prayer allows us to remain within the parameters of what we
believe aligns with God's vision.
How can you be a
part of fulfilling the vision?
You can pray.
Prayer is powerful, and it is at the center of everything we do.
We are fully aware
that we cannot achieve our goals without complete dependence on God, the one
who is ultimately in charge of this vision. Pray that we are filled with zeal
for the Lord, that we remember that this vision is not about us, and that we
give ultimate control and glory to God.
In the fourth
century, there was a man named St. Ephrem who lived in Syria, and he wrote this
prayer which reaches to our core:
“O Lord and master of my life, take from me the spirit of
laziness, despair, lust of power, and idle talk. But give rather the spirit of
purity, humility, patience, and love to thy servant. Yea, O Lord and king,
grant me to see my own transgressions and not to judge my brother, for blessed
art thou, unto ages of ages. Amen.”
If we are serious
about working together to give at least a billion people the opportunity to
hear, understand, and believe the Good News of Jesus Christ, we must share this
prayer. We must pray for purity, humility, patience, and love; we must pray
that we don’t make ourselves the center of what God is doing. May we not only
pray this, but also experience God’s enablement to live it!
With a vision this
size, we must rely on the only one who can make it a reality. And, by the grace
of God, we will continue until one billion people have heard the Good News of

wasn’t sure what to think about a three-hour prayer rally … especially only two
weeks into my internship.
month, One Mission Society (OMS) holds a prayer rally at the OMS World
Headquarters in Indiana. From 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. homeland missionaries gather in
the fellowship hall to pray, hear updates from various mission fields, worship
in song, talk together in community, as well as participate in other activities
usually centered on a specific theme for the rally.
don’t think I’d ever prayed for an hour, let alone prayed for three. I didn’t
know what to expect. Before walking into the fellowship hall, I wondered what
it would feel like; would it be fast or slow, boring or engaging? I think the biggest
hesitancy I had about the rally was the fact that the majority of OMS
headquarters took three hours out of their work day. Would the rally feel like
you were wasting precious work hours?
course, I didn’t want to admit my doubts about the prayer rally. So, I jumped
in and hoped for the best.
started the rally with worship songs. After that, the summer interns, as well
as the newly-accepted missionaries went one-by-one to the podium to share briefly
about ourselves. Then, the OMS staff prayed over us. They reached out their
hands toward us at the different tables and called out words in a blessing of
I remember sitting at my table, smiling, as words like “courage,” “creativity,”
“perseverance,” and “joy” were spoken over me.
also spent a large portion of our time praying for our nation and the other
nations in which OMS served. Half of the group surrounded our 30-plus flags
outside and prayed specifically for each country, while the other half stayed
inside to pray for the United States.
stayed inside, but it was hard to pray for my country. Why should I pray for
leaders I didn’t believe in or trust, for a nation I thought couldn’t get back
up on its feet? My cynicism for my country boiled over in frustration. But when
I heard others’ fervent prayers, when I saw the hope people had for our nation,
I slowly rethought my initial reactions and realized how out of line I was
about condemning my country in that manner. Who was I to condemn before praying
that extended time of prayer, we also heard updates from a few OMS fields, including
Haiti and the newly-completed Bon Repos project, which provided 36 homes and a church/school
for an impoverished Haitian community. It was such a blessing to hear the
stories and see the pictures and videos from Haiti. All of OMS was encouraged
no time at all, it was noon. I wanted more time to pray, to worship, to hear
about what was happening around the world. For me, the prayer rally was
challenging and peaceful. People had blessed me and had also frustrated and
challenged my views and my prayer habits. I felt like God had softened my heart
in those quick three hours.
I had the privilege of attending a second prayer rally before my internship ended.
That time around, I was a lot more excited to go because I knew the blessings
it would bring. Since my first prayer rally, I have noticed that God has
changed me on the inside. I have learned more about what it means to pray
without ceasing. I have learned that nothing is unworthy of prayer, whether
that be the smallest detail in my life or a nation that the darkest part of my
heart believes is too far gone to be revived. I have experienced the blessing
it is to pray in community, as well as in private.
most importantly, I have been able to understand and bathe in the peace and
fulfillment that being in prayer brings—a peace that is full of the presence of
God, a peace that whispers in your ear that ultimately being in God’s presence
in prayer is enough.
I’ve also learned that prayer is essential not just in personal lives, but also
in an organization like OMS. Without
prayer, OMS cannot do what it does. Because prayer is powerful. It works.
It is more powerful than anything else OMS can ever do. It is our connection to
God, the one for whom we do everything. So wouldn’t it make sense to dedicate a
mere three hours a month to a prayer rally?
it doesn’t have to stop there. OMS’ prayer rally is a focused outpouring in
community, but I’ve noticed after working here for two months that the rally is
just the tip of the iceberg. Prayer permeates everything OMS does, as it
should. The day it doesn’t is the day OMS is not effective.
is the prayer rally a waste of precious work time? Absolutely not. Prayer comes
first. Everything else is a reflection of prayer, our relationship with God,
and his calling on our lives. It is the most important thing we can ever do.

Mayelis Licea, a prayer group and Bible study leader, waited
five years until she received a Bible of her own. Before that, she had used her
mother-in-law’s or a borrowed copy of another believer. But now, Mayelis has
her own personal copy of the Word of God in a version that is more comfortable
and easier to read.
The exponentially expanding Cuban church desperately needs
Bibles. Without the Word of God, which is God-breathed truth and our roadmap for
the Christian walk, individuals cannot progress far in their spiritual
journeys. Cuban believers need guidance and truth so they can develop in their
relationships with Jesus Christ.
One Mission Society’s (OMS) Bibles for Cuba project provides
Bibles to the people of Cuba—people like Mayelis, who, after five years, now
has her own copy of God’s Word.
Delivering Bibles may sound like a simple thing, but the
impact it makes on people is eternal. For Mayelis, having a Bible is a blessing
from God and also an opportunity to share the Gospel with her husband, Vladimir
Herrera, who is not a Christian but is interested in learning more about the
“Now we can read it [the Bible] together,” Mayelis said.
“Sometimes I ask him to read with me a passage or we comment about any
particular Bible story. In that way, he is more involved and he can not only
know the Word of God but also Jesus.”
Mayelis thanks God, first and foremost, for using OMS,
through the Bibles for Cuba project, to deliver the Gospel to her nation so
that more and more people can have their own Bibles to study with and grow in
their relationships with God. Her prayer for Bibles for Cuba, she said, is that
“the Lord continues blessing them in such a way that they can continue blessing
Please join us in praying for Cuba:
- That God will work in Mayelis’ and Vladimir’s
lives and in their marriage through the power of his holy Word.
- That the Cuban believers will receive more
Bibles so they can study God’s Word and develop in their relationships with
- That the Bibles for Cuba project can continue to
help deliver these Bibles and serve our brothers and sisters in Cuba.
Please also consider how you can give to help Bibles for
Cuba bring the precious Word of God to a nation that so desperately needs it, a
nation where some people, like Mayelis, must wait a long time to have a Bible
of their own.

Luelf Duewel was born in St. Charles, Missouri (a suburb of St Louis), on
Saturday, June 3, 1916, to God-honoring parents. His father was an evangelical
pastor, Bible college president, and radio preacher. His mother was a godly
woman with a deep and meaningful prayer life.
made his first profession of faith as a five-year-old, and soon thereafter was
called by God, in the midst of his sandbox, to serve as a missionary to India.
Throughout his life, he made many more life-changing decisions based on his
increasing spiritual maturity that became evident in his heart, through his
youth experiences; young adult education; professional preparation, up to and
including, his election as the fifth president of OMS; and into his writing
ministry following his presidency.
relied primarily on prayer and a sanctified sense of God’s guidance as he met
and married his first wife, Betty Raisch, in 1939. He discovered she had
claimed the life verse that he had: “Enlarge
the place of your tent; stretch your tent curtains wide, do not hold back;
lengthen your cords, strengthen your stakes. For you will spread out to the
right and to the left” Isaiah 54:2-3a. This promise served as a predictor
of his eventual worldwide ministry.
his time at God’s Bible School, Wesley prayed earnestly for “an effectual door”
to open for him to serve in India. By 1940, Wesley and Betty Duewel were among
the first group of seven OMS missionaries who sailed for India.
and Betty underscored their work with prayer, and within two years, he helped
found the Allahabad Bible Seminary. It was into this prayer-filled home that
their son, John Wesley, was born in 1944. A daughter, Christine, joined the
family two years later, and Darlene was included 10 years following.
Wesley taught for 22 years at the seminary and served as its principal for 15,
he and Betty carried a special burden for a praying, spirit-filled church in
India. After a quarter of a century, there was one church for every year they
labored in love, with about 60 members each, and three small Bible schools in
three states of India.
for an OMS Board meeting in 1964, somewhere over the Pacific between Honolulu
and Los Angeles, Wesley prayed again: “Oh
Lord, give us 1,000 people who will commit themselves to pray for 15 minutes a
day for at least one year, specifically praying for our OMS India work.”
God honored that prayer with 1,500 people from 30 nations who prayed over the
next 12 months. It was a spiritual jump-start that broke through strongholds
and opened the way for the Gospel to advance like never before.
growth and development of the Evangelical Church of India (ECI) was slow,
starting with one church every year for the first 25 years, then increasing to
one church every month over the next 25 years, then one church every week over
the next 10 years, then three churches every week over the next 10 years. Today,
the ECI consists of more than 5,276 churches and 8,018 house churches, with a
membership of more than 750,000 and growing at the rate of approximately 4½
churches weekly. There are also 13 Bible schools and seminaries. The deeply
embedded prayer habit sown by Wesley and Betty during ECIs foundational years made
Duewel concluded his 13-year organizational leadership tenure in 1982 with a
mission-wide emphasis called “Decade of
Harvest.” The next 10 years was one of the most fruitful eras of
productivity One Mission Society had ever experienced. Following his
presidency, Wesley was led to expand his writing ministry. His first major book,
Touch the World through Prayer, has
become a modern-day classic; circulation has reached nearly one million and Dr.
Duewel’s ten subsequent publications have exceeded 2.5 million in circulation
printed in 58 languages worldwide.
Betty passed away in 2008, Wesley married his long-time secretary, Hilda
Johnecheck, who faithfully worked at his side in the Duewel Literature Trust, a not-for-profit, self-funded ministry.
“You can stand beside the great evangelists
of our day; accompany any missionary to the remote reaches of the earth;
contribute to the ministry of any pastor or evangelist in the world; or mediate
the healing of Jesus Christ to the sick, ill, or faint of heart anywhere on the
globe. Prayer is not the only thing you must do. It is the greatest thing you
can do.” Indeed, God enlarged and stretched, lengthened, and strengthened
Wesley’s ministry beyond anything that he, his parents, his wives, or his
colleagues could ever have imagined. He was a man of many peers, but few
Now to him
who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according
to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church
and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen (Ephesians 3:20–21).
John, Christine, Darlene, as well as your children and grandchildren, be assured
of our love and prayers for you during these days. The entire worldwide OMS
family expresses our profound appreciation for Wesley’s tireless service for
God and his kingdom. We pray that the Holy Spirit’s presence and comfort will
uplift and strengthen you during these days of mourning your great loss. We
know, however, that you do not grieve as those who have no hope. We rejoice
with you, imagining how wonderful to Wesley’s ears were the words spoken to him
by Jesus, “Well done, my good and faithful servant.” And we rejoice with you in
knowing that someday we will not only join Wesley in worshiping around the
throne, but thousands and thousands of those whom he touched, through prayer,
around the world.
Esther and me personally, we had read some of Dr. Duewel’s writings and heard
about him. But it wasn’t until we came to OMS in 2014 that we met him. We knew
right away that we were in the presence of a great man of God, a spiritual
giant! What a joy and honor it has been
to pray and interact with him, to be inspired and challenged by him, and to see
him finish well. The life he lived, and
the way in which he lived it, will continue to be a poignant spiritual
challenge to us and many others. We are so grateful for the life and ministry
of Dr. Wesley Duewel.
rejoice with you as his family and express deep gratitude to our Lord for a
life extremely well lived for God’s honor and glory,
President, One Mission

One of Haiti's chief government officials had arrived at our Radio 4VEH studio to record a public interest program. Seated at the microphone, he suddenly realized he had left his notebook in the car. Worse yet, he had locked his keys inside, which was the reason for the frustration we were seeing through the studio window.
We had just finished staff devotions, led by Gaudin Charles on Luke 18:8, "When the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on the earth?" Immediately, several of our fellows gathered around the car and tried every imaginable suggestion for retrieving the keys - but nothing worked! The crowd was multiplying because Haitians are inquisitive, and they wanted to see what was happening
Louisa Destine, our prayer warrior and woman of faith, began walking toward the reception room with her thoughts ablaze, "Why don't we put our faith to work? God can do a miracle, if we obey Him."
By this time, the irritated official was pounding on the car door and window. All at once, he stopped and blurted out, "On the radio you preach about faith in God and that he will answer your prayers. Why aren't you praying now?"
Goaded by this challenge, Louisa quickly teamed with coworkers in intercession. "God, you heard this man. We know you answer prayer. Glorify yourself; don't let us be ashamed. Make a way ... make a way, Jesus, make a way ..." she pleaded.
At that time, a young mother, Madame Manno, drove in to pick up her children at Cowman School. Louisa felt she should run over to that car as though Jesus was saying "There are the keys!"
"Madame Manno, give me your keys, Jesus said these are the keys to open this man's car!" Louisa shouted. The young mother laughed, "You can try, but they won't work in another car!"
With confidence, Louisa took the keys and ran over to the official. "We just asked God to make a way to open your car door. Use these keys. In Jesus' name, use these keys!"
The look on his face revealed his thoughts, "Are you going to make a fool of me?" Others of us stood with pounding hearts! Louisa said, "Put the key in the door, in Jesus name, put the key in the door!"
There was silence, then reluctantly the government official thrust the key in the lock … turned it … and click. The door opened!
Over the shouting of the shocked bystanders, the unmistakable voice of Louisa was heard. "Blessed be the Lord, Blessed be the name of the Lord. Benit soit l'Eternel."
Dumbfounded, the official added his proclamation, "Your God is alive, your God is alive, I, too, believe, I, too, believe!"
Recording the program was forgotten as the official got into his car and drove away. But, he, along with those who saw it, will never forget that prayer was the key, and faith unlocked the door that day!

For today's post we have various stories from mission fields around the world. These stories include church planters who have begun using the Train & Multiply curriculum, as well as courageous men and women sharing the Gospel in their own cultural context. We hope that these stories will inspire and encourage you to continue the great work of the Kingdom.
Govardhan - India
by Jim Hogrefe
Govardhan from Madya Pradesh had tried to plant churches, but had no success because he did not know where to start. He came to a Train & Multiply training event and then went back to his village and trained others. One of the people groups in his village had no believers, so Govardhan prayed and one person from that group believed. Govardhan made him a disciple and after several months invited him to become a pastoral worker. At first the man was hesitant, but they prayed and Govardhan said, “If God is telling you to share the Gospel, I will help you.” Together they went to the man’s people group and began looking for persons of peace. Now there are fourteen families (53 people) who have believed and formed a church to help each other grow in the Lord.
Angela - Colombia
by Greg Carlson
As Angela hung up the phone she gripped her brother's arm and said, "You've got to come with me!" Her family, members of a fourth generation house church in Medellin, Colombia, had been evangelizing in the streets near their home. The phone call was from her neighbor who was pleading for Angela to come pray for her sick mother. Angela was afraid. She had never done that before.
McGregor, Angela’s brother, agreed to go along for moral support. He had only chosen to follow Jesus weeks earlier after previously listening indifferently to the Bible studies in his cramped living room. As Angela sat beside the ailing woman, the only prayer that came to her mind was what we call ''the Sinner's Prayer." She asked the woman if she would like to pray to ask God to forgive her sin, and the two prayed together. The next day, Angela learned that the woman had died.
Attending church the following Sunday, Angela spoke with the pastor's wife and said, "I just hope the Lord will have mercy on her." "Why, Angela," the pastor's wife replied, "you gave her the offer of salvation, and she accepted! It's because of your visit that she is in heaven today!"

While doing evangelism, we met a young lady, the daughter of a witch doctor. She heard our message and introduced us to her father who listened to the Gospel, but would not accept Christ.
A month later, this man went over the other side of the mountain to sell a cow. On his trip back home, he was attacked and beheaded. The police are not nearby, so his wife and children took his body and buried it.
Five days after his death, it was learned that his attackers had been paid to murder him. This realization precipitated a string of revenge killings in which three people lost their lives.
The road where the murder occurred is the route also used by the people of Augarde to access the school and market in town. Residents of the village below use the road to reach their farms on the hillsides and church in the mountains. As a result of the three revenge murders, three children were also killed on the route to school.
This on-going violence brought a halt to the regular rhythm of life, as people could not make their trips to school, market and church.
Christians began to pray, and as the prayer intensified, the tension began to diminish. Residents of the area attributed the obvious change to the prayers of God’s people.
The witch doctor’s second daughter is now also a believer and his wife is attending church weekly. She has not committed her life to Christ, but has asked for prayer and stated that at some point she will become a follower of Jesus. Since this crisis and the subsequent prayer, there has been an increased openness to the Gospel.

draws you to worship? What draws you to pray? I remember a business trip I took
once to Scottsdale, AZ, where I had about three days of down time. My bride,
Kathy, was able to accompany me. We decided to make the four-hour drive to
visit the Grand Canyon and to spend the night there.
had read about the Grand Canyon; we had seen pictures; we had talked about this
awesome wonder, but the fact is, we had not yet experienced it. This was our
chance. The entire drive was filled with expectancy as we talked about what we
might see and do. We were excited because we expected an actual encounter.
we were not disappointed. As we
approached the rim and gazed out over the expansive depths, the myriad of
colors, the complete vastness of this wonder of God’s creation we responded in
silent awe. Of course, we would talk about it later, but at the time, silence
seemed the only appropriate response to what we were experiencing. Not only
would our words have been inadequate, but any attempt at words would have been
a rude affront to what the majesty of this place demanded of us.
next day, as we prepared to leave, I wondered if those who worked here day
after day ever grew complacent to what surrounded them. Or did they find new
wonder as they approached day after day? Do we approach God each day, expecting
to discover something new about him, something we have never before seen that
results in a newfound sense of reverence and awe? Do we expect to encounter his
Eastman writes, “Worship provides an opportunity to encounter God in all his
fullness firsthand.” He points out that this worship is essential to powerful
intercession and describes worship as “pure, passionate adoration and fear of
this how Jesus taught us to approach God? We declare him both as “Abba, Daddy”
and “holy” at the same time in the first sentence of the Lord’s Prayer. Eastman
explains that this fear is not the shrinking fear that John experienced when
all abandoned Jesus after his arrest, but rather, the holy fear expressed in
Revelation 1:17 when he encountered Jesus in all his glory and fell at his feet
as if dead. He describes this fear as an “astonished reverence, breathless
adoration, awesome fascination, and lofty admiration” all at once.

I am not sure I know how to pray. Not the way Charles Cowman, the founder of One Mission Society, prayed. In his biography Missionary Warrior, Lettie Cowman writes of Charles, “The [mission] hall became so crowded that we prayed for larger quarters. On April 21, a poor woman sent a gift of five dollars, quoting Isaiah 54:2, ‘Enlarge the place of thy tent.’ It sent Charles to his knees, and he immediately claimed from God a larger building. In May, $1,000 came from a stranger who had felt the Lord leading him to make a gift to the Mission. It came just in time to purchase a splendid mission hall … Every dollar needed for its purchase was received.” Wow!
What did Charles say to God? Was it his words? His faith? A mixture of both? I think if I had received $5 from someone, praying about it would not have been my first response, yet, it was for Charles Cowman. Why?
Reading missionary biographies causes me to question my own prayer life. I know Jesus gave the disciples (and us) the Lord’s Prayer. Yet, I know something is different from the way I pray and the way Jesus prays, as I read in Scripture. My prayers sound so empty, unless I am in a serious state of struggle or pain. What about the rest of the days? The ones that are just “same old, same old.” What is missing?
I am not looking for a formula or a “magical wording” because I do not think that is the issue. I am missing some connection with the Lord that Charles Cowman possessed, as well as other spiritual giants like Hudson Taylor, Corrie Ten Boom, and Billy Graham. After some soul searching, I must admit, it is the intimacy of my prayers, or rather, the lack of intimacy. Lord, teach me to pray like that!
Therefore, I am so excited about the One Mission Society Prayer Summit coming up September 29 – October 1. The cry of my heart is to know how to communicate with my Father in heaven like Jesus did in the upper room and how the founder of OMS did back in the late 1800s and early 1900s.
God has not changed since the dawn of time. How then should I enter into the presence of Almighty God? I am determined to find out at the OMS Prayer Summit. If you want a deeper, more meaningful prayer life, please go to prayersummit.onemissionsociety.org. Click the link to find more information and to register for the summit.
