And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. Mark 16:15
Today we will focus on praying for Missionaries, those who are near to us or far from us. Those brothers or sisters in Christ whom we might know personally, or those who we know through our church or Christian Organization.
Jesus commanded all of us believers to preach the gospel, however Missionaries have made it their life’s work.
Most Missionaries feel they have been called to go to various countries or places to preach the gospel and teach.
They often leave their homeland, family and friends to follow Christ’s leading and they need our prayers.
They stand on the verse in Romans 10:14: How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher?
So let’s pray that they will be like Jesus’ disciples in Luke 9:6
So they departed and went through the towns, preaching the gospel and healing everywhere.
Let’s pray that the Spirit of the Lord will be upon them as it was upon Jesus in Luke 4:18
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me To preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives And recovery of sight to the blind, To set at liberty those who are oppressed;”
Today I want to pray for your missionaries, your apostles, who have gone out into the world to preach the good news gospel.
- I want to pray for their protection, Lord. I pray You will surround them with your angels night and day.
- I want to pray for their health, and their provision. I pray that they may prosper in all things and be in health, as their soul prospers, according to 3John 1:2.
- I want to pray that Your Holy Spirit will empower them to heal souls spiritually and physically in Your name, so that people will be set free to love and serve You Lord.
- I want to pray for divine opportunities, divine connections and divine appointments for them daily.
Thank You Lord. In Jesus name I pray.
(If you know a missionary or missionaries personally, please feel free to insert their name into the above prayer instead of just praying it as written.)
If you want to send an encouraging note to a missionary visit the IMB International Mission Board at: www.imb.org where they have a form that you can fill out to send a message of encouragement to a missionary to let them know they are being prayed for.
“How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel of peace, Who bring glad tidings of good things!” Romans 10:15
