30 Things to Pray about for Missionaries
DAY 20: DISCERNMENT
Paul’s encounters with Elymas (Acts 13:6-12) and with the slave girl (Acts 16:16-18) highlight the need for discernment for missionaries in their confrontation with the kingdom of darkness. Paul also exercised discernment at Lystra when he perceived the lame man believed, and could be healed (Acts 13:8-10). He exhibited another type at Athens to discern their religious and spiritual lifestyle (Acts 17:16-32).
- Pray that missionaries would abound in the knowledge and depth of insight.
- Pray that they would be able to discern what is good and live a life pleasing to the Lord.
