Pray for God to enlarge the capacities of the leadership at all levels for effective and godly leadership and administration. Pray that God will protect and preserve us from all forms of harm.

30 Things to Pray about for Missionaries
DAY 24: FEAR OF THE FUTURE
An insidious but nagging fear and anxiety plaguing many missionaries is the fear of the future, of what becomes of them and their families after their missionary service. These are legitimate and genuine human concerns.
- Pray to God to begin to prepare missionaries and their families for the future.
- Ask for God’s leading and guidance in their decision on length of missionary service, and their post-missionary years.
- Ask for open doors for them into the future, that their gifts/calling speak for them and bring them into greatness.
