Below are a few ideas to fuel your prayers for the nations.
Pray for more co-laborers willing to go and make disciples. The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few!
God opens new doors for the Gospel. Pray for favor from governments and authorities for missionaries needing visas and for churches seeking places to meet together. Pray that the Gospel would prosper, even in the face of persecution.
Pray that God would enable missionaries to learn new languages and customs so they can reach people at a heart level. Ask for teachable, humble hearts that are yielded to the Lord.
Pray for hearts to be softened and ready to receive the message of the Gospel. Pray that national believers would be rooted and established in love, and that they would grow in the knowledge of God’s word and boldly share it with others.
Pray for the establishment of God’s kingdom as churches grow and multiply in the least reached places. Pray for unity among believers so that churches would work together to impact their communities and the world.
Safety and Family
Pray for good health and safety for missionaries, many of whom work in remote places far from medical care. Intercede for missionary children and the added stresses that face families living cross-culturally.
Pray for missionaries to persevere with joy in the work the to which the Lord has called them. Pray against discouragement and the attacks of the enemy who seeks to destroy.
Pray for wisdom to discern God’s will as teams set plans and priorities for ministry. Pray for their faith to grow as they trust God for all things.
