Prayer Guide: Missionaries

Team Uganda: Thanksgiving 2010
God certainly hears when His people pray- and I believe He honors even when we pray "bless so and so"- but how He longs for us to bring specific needs to His throne and actively participate in missionaries' lives and ministries!  You may not be called to full-time missions- but you are called to missions.  Praying for missionaries is another way you can participate in the Great Commission.  Here is a weekly prayer guide:
  • Sunday- the missionary's own spiritual walk, growth in grace through daily devotions, private prayer, corporate worship and Sabbath keeping.
  • Monday- The missionary's personal life, health, safety, financial provision, emotional stability, and well-being.
  • Tuesday- The missionary's family life, husband/wife relationships, parenting, children, extended family from whom they are separated, and the model of a Godly family they display
  • Wednesday- The missionary as a communicator, facility with the foreign language, cultural adaptation, and communicating the truth by the example they set.
  • Thursday- The missionary's ministry, teaching, preaching, witnessing, discipling, boldness, fruitfulness, and satisfaction in their work and open doors through which they may pass to share Christ.
  • Friday- The missionary's relationship with fellow workers, a sense of cooperation and not competition, humility, consider others ahead of self, avoidance of pride, working with nationals
  • Saturday- The missionary's country of service, stability, freedom, governmental leaders, passports, visas, work permits, etc.
