A Palal Partner is one who prays, who who has purpose in their prayers, and who is relentless in prayer. A Palal Partner is devoted to prayer for the HGIM Network of ministries and it's friends and supporters. A Palal Partner is not only dedicated to pray for this ministry, but for all the needs sent in for prayer.
God hears the prayers of those who fervently pray, who have purpose in their prayers, and who are relentless in prayer. Hannah’s testimony in 1 Samuel 1:10-20 bears this out without a doubt. In fact, she was so grateful for God's response to her fervent prayer, she gave the “answer” back to the Lord as she took Samuel to the temple to live there and to be taught by the priests. Samuel grew to be a great prophet and was used mightily of the Lord.
The word used for pray as Hannah prayed before the Lord is translated from the Hebrew word palal. The English translation for palal is “to intercede, pray, intreat, make prayer, make supplication.” The word palal literally means to “fall down to the ground in the presence of one in authority pleading a cause.”

Bound With Them brings awareness to and seeks prayer support for persecuted believers across the globe. By using social media, volunteers help to keep our prayer partners apprised of the persecuted church by posting news of recent reports of persecution for the sake of the Cross. Please join us in praying for those who face imprisonment, torture and even death for their commitment to Christ and the testimony of faith in Him. This is a growing problem and no longer isolated to third world countries. It is becoming an every-day occurrence to learn of believers being ridiculed, taxed, fined, mistreated, imprisoned, tortured and killed simply because they refuse to compromise their faith.
