“If we want to leave an indelible mark on the world, there is no more powerful way to do it than by joining in God’s purposes through prayer. Our Prayers can go where we cannot. While many things may seem impossible from a human standpoint, in the realm of prayer there are no impossibilities.”
Brother Andrew

Prayer is right at the heart of Open Doors. We support people who live through impossible situations – situations that money or government action, will never fully repair, heal or restore. So, we pray and ask for God to do the impossible, because we know he can.
