TFM has a “secret weapon” – our prayer partners. Over the years we have gathered a group of people who pray for our work, many of them daily but many others particularly praying when missions take place. We would love you to join us in this task.

Many years ago John Hibberd wrote a manual for use in mission preparation called “Prayer, the hidden face of evangelism”. It was based on a conviction shared among evangelists that prayer is essential in the task of sharing the gospel, opening doors and hearts in a way that eloquence, organisation or even sheer force of character can never hope to achieve.
"No prayer, no power; some prayer, some power; much prayer much power."
Evangelism is a spiritual task and it requires spiritual means to prosper. In all of our missions and Walks we work hard to encourage local churches to make prayer a central part of their preparations. For all sorts of reasons the demise of “the prayer meeting” in churches across our nation means that this isn’t always easy. We try to help individual Christians and whole churches to be imaginative and persistent in prayer. One thing is certain: when you go to a mission you can tell very quickly whether it has been prayed for. As someone once wrote, “No prayer, no power; some prayer, some power; much prayer, much power.”
There are 3 main ways to be prayerfully involved:
TFM sends out a newsletter by email three or four times a year. Like the printed newsletter below it it has articles on the work of TFM plus links to other related items to assist you in your prayer. To read the latest enewsletter and to sign up to receive it click here.
TFM produces a regular printed newsletter with prayer diary. The reports will give you feedback on events for which you have been praying as well as insights into what is coming up. The prayer diary details the main missions and events for the coming few months. To find out more about our newsletter, to read the latest issue online and find out how to sign up to receive it click here.
This gives you much more up-to-date detail on what is taking place, particularly as many events tend to come in after we have published our newsletters. This weekly update by email will really keep you in touch with what is happening. To find out more about our Prayer Mail and how to sign up to receive it click here.
TFM has produced a Prayer Sheet to help you pray for our work. It covers the seven days of the week with a topic for prayer each day.
