The Importance of Prayer

This crucial place of prayer reaffirms that great goal of God to uphold and display his glory for the enjoyment of the redeemed from all the nations…. The missionary purpose of God is as invincible as the fact that he is God. He will achieve his purpose by creating white-hot worshippers from every people, tongue, tribe and nation (Rev. 5:9; 7:9). And he will be engaged to do it through prayer. Therefore, it is almost impossible to overemphasize the awesome place of prayer in the purposes of God for the world.  John Piper, The Mission of God's People, p. 254
