Bless God for His power and presence that sustained us throughout year 2022. Appreciate God, for by His mercy we were not consumed. We were hard pressed on every side, yet not crushed, perplexed, but not in despair, persecuted but not forsaken, struck down but not destroyed; praise God! Thank God for all our partners, supporters, churches, and friends for all their contributions. Ask God to increase our capacity and His grace upon us to fulfill our tasks in missions, ministry, and all areas of our lives in 2023. Pray for us to experience all round prosperity (Genesis 26:13; 3 John 2). Pray for good health, sound mind, journey mercies and abundant provision of resources for ministry and home.
30 Things to Pray about for Missionaries
DAY 8: DISTRACTIONS
Nehemiah 6:1-14 highlight various ways by which a missionary can be distracted and intimidated. Four times the adversaries sent letters to Nehemiah suggesting meetings, but Nehemiah replied, “I am doing important work and cannot go down there. I am not going to let the work stop just to go and see you”.
Missionaries are faced with many distractions on the field. Sicknesses, attacks on family members, irrelevant meetings, “tent-making” activities, social activities, etc., are examples of such distractions.
- Pray for wisdom and discernment for missionaries to recognize such distractions.
- Ask God to give missionaries focus, that they may start and finish their task without distractions or being distracted.
