Inside MTW's Prayer Ministry (Video)

By Claire Hutchinson Rodger, Apr 21, 2020

As COVID-19 sweeps the globe, we are all the more aware of our dependence on God. This devastating virus serves as a potent reminder that even more than mercy, more than evangelism, more than teaching, more than discipleship, prayer is the work. Prayer is our primary ministry. 

When Ken and Tammie Matlack first started ministering in Berlin 30 years ago, they arrived with lots of credentials that said they were equipped for the role. But within six weeks they found themselves on their faces before God saying, “What do we do? Because if You don’t show up in power, Lord, this is the stupidest thing we ever decided to do.”

The Matlacks are leading MTW's global prayer effort, helping our organization become a people who are about seeking God and asking Him to move and release His power to accomplish what He desires to accomplish among the nations.

Watch and learn more about MTW's primary ministry—the ministry of prayer.

They All Have First Names

As refugees flood into European countries where we minister, we are learning how to love them as Christ does.


"Go Where the Battle Is Raging:" MTW Missionaries Share Stories of Spiritual Warfare

The enemy relentlessly assaulted missionaries in Berlin. But God equipped them to help push back the forces of darkness through prayer.


A Pandemic Ignites a Surge of Life and Death Conversations in Burdened Berlin

The pandemic shook people in Berlin in a way they hadn’t been shaken before. And when people had life and death questions, they came to Jay.


Give thanks to God for a movement of the Spirit spreading across Europe opening doors that have been long-shut.

Praise God for breaking through barriers in Germany and producing long-sought-after fruit! Pray for new believers to grow in their faith and lead others to Christ. 

Pray for those who have entered into life and death questions of faith with missionaries in Berlin as a result of the pandemic. 

Pray for missionaries seeking to minister to those who are critical and hard to love. Pray that missionaries would love their neighbor as Christ loved us.

Pray specifically for the refugees in Berlin with whom our missionaries are building relationships. Pray that these refugees would come to faith if they do not know Christ.

Pray for MTW's ministry to refugees in Greece, Germany, Ukraine, Uganda, Panama, and the U.S.

Praise God for opening doors in Germany for us to minister to refugees in a local refugee home. Pray for refugees to grasp the love of Christ. 

Pray for the declining Church in Europe. Many see Europe as post-Christian and without hope. But we know that Christ will build His church.

Pray that we would be able to accomodate and recruit interns desiring to work in their field of study and participate in global missions.

Pray for Europeans who have heard the gospel but are hesitant to fully commit to Christ. Pray that God would draw them to Himself.
