"Call upon Me in the day of trouble: I will deliver you.” —Psalm 50:15 There are times in life when each of us needs prayer for difficulties we are walking through! As you call upon the only ONE who can answer those prayers, allows others to do so on your behalf also! Part of our adoption by Christian Radio JQ99 enables your prayer requests to be read, replied to, and prayed for by thousands within their listening family anonymously! It is simply, confidential, and it WORKS!
Paradise Bound began with the simple prayers of a young couple, yet through our Lord’s own words in Mathew 18 they were not alone. Jesus Christ our Lord has continued fulfilling His promise each and every day of their lives and within this, His ministry.
“Prayer does not equip us for the greater work, it IS the greater work.”
This quote by Oswald Chambers headlined our very first brochure way back in 1997, when only three knew anything of the calling that was in the heart of founders Dan and Heidi Smith. Paradise Bound was built on prayer and now our Lord uses prayer to continually bless PBM as that initial three has turned into nearly 3,000 team members ministering alongside our organization, touching over 100,000 lives in Guatemala and capturing Chambers' vision that prayer truly is the greater work!
Today we are all busy, many times doing "good" things...yet, "It is so easy to be seduced by the good to neglect the best, until both the good and the best perish." In his book The Weapon of Prayer E.M. Bounds explains that "When satan can keep us too busy doing good to stop and pray, he has effectively disarmed us." In recent years we have expressed our hearts in this way..."A few moments of "your" time can equal someone else's Eternity through the power of prayer in our Lord Jesus Christ!"

In addition to our email prayer group, we have various prayer groups meeting weekly to pray for Paradise Bound and Open Doors Orphanage. Specifically, that we would be: 1) used by God to win souls unto Himself; 2) remain centered in His holy and perfect will for His ministry; and 3) that we would be one with Christ as He prayed for each of us in John 17. To join or form another PBM/OD prayer team, simply email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.
