How Should We Then Pray?

This week we went to my (Bethany’s) parent for their small group meeting. One of the men in their group gave us all bookmarks with a list of how to pray for missionaries. It was originally by Dave Butts, and it’s so perfect that I thought I’d share it with you all as we count down the last 3 weeks until departure.

Pray for Missionaries Biblically (What Paul asked prayer for):
1. for ACCEPTANCE (Rom 15:31)
2. for BOLDNESS (Eph 6:19)
3. for CLARITY (Col 4:4)
4. for DELIVERANCE (Rom 15:31)
5. for EXTENSION – no limitation by boundaries (Col 4:3)
6. for FRUITFULNESS (2 Thess 3:1)

Pray for the Nitty-Gritty (top reasons for leaving the field):
1. for NO DISAGREEMENTS between missionaries and leadership
2. for SEXUAL PURITY AND FIDELITY
3. for THE DRIVE TO SUCCEED
4. for NO GOVERNMENT INSTABILITY
5. for NO HEALTH PROBLEMS
6. for CHILDREN’S EDUCATION
7. for NO HOMESICKNESS

The last one especially resonates with us as we start saying goodbye and moving out. Please keep praying for us during this time of transition!
