Revelation 14:6-7 Then I saw another angel flying in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach to those who dwell on the earth—to every nation, tribe, tongue, and people— saying with a loud voice, “Fear God and give glory to Him, for the hour of His judgment has come; and worship Him who made heaven and earth, the sea and springs of water.”
Father, we thank you for the amazing men and women whom You have called to reach every tongue, tribe and every nation in the whole earth. As we pray for all missionaries, we also pray for missionaries that we know or support, ___________, that all will be filled with the Holy Spirit and will daily walk in His power and that they will speak the Word of God with boldness. Grant them Your specific direction for their ministries. Help them to present the gospel clearly to unbelievers, and for You to prepare the hearts of those preparing to hear the Word. Let them be vessels through which Your love can flow. We pray that You would grant them great favor and they would be accepted by the people, believers and missionaries in the area where they are laboring. We pray for divine appointments, being in the right place at the right time, with the right resources and that their ministries would be exceedingly fruitful and multiply, and that You would glorify Yourself through them. We pray for organizational skills and the ability to prioritize and discern projects and that You would bless them in all that they do. Let them be authors and finishers in the faith as You direct.
Lord, we pray that You will protect them from the attacks of Satan and his demons. Deliver them from loneliness, discouragement and frustration. It is our heart that You would deliver them from the hand of the enemy, however, we thank You that You are an ever-present help in times of trouble, and if persecution takes place, we plead that each missionary will endure persecution in a Christ-like manner and will be willing to give his/her life for the gospel’s sake if that is what is called for. We pray for the families of our missionaries that they be strong and of good courage, filled with a common vision and passion. Lord, I ask that You to bless and strengthen missionary families. We pray especially for missionary children, for Your love to encompass them round about, and that You would help them with hearts of obedience, passion for the local outreach and godly friends. Thank you for family unity and for servant hearts. We pray You would give peace and assurance about the care of their family members that are left at home. Father, I plead that You will continually protect them from all harm and ask that You would strengthen them spiritually, emotionally, physically and as a family.
We pray for abundant provision, and that You would raise up prayer partners, finances, and support that is needed of every kind. That there is no lack, in fact that You would mobilize the resources of heaven, even the cattle on a thousand hills to come forth to meet needs. Thank You, that You supply more than enough!
*And now, Lord, I ask that You help me to pray regularly for our missionaries and their families. Examine my heart and speak to me about my involvement with missions. Show me how You would like me to be involved supporting the laborers in the mission field, or are you calling me to go? Do you want me to increase my giving? I am listening! In Jesus Name! Amen!
