Key Verse

“Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints” (Ephesians 6:18).

Text — Ephesians 6:18-24


Stressing the need to pray for missionaries, Edward McKendree Bounds says, “Talking to men for God is a great thing, but talking to God for men is greater still.” It is easy to pray for your spouse, children, and work so you can pay all the bills on time. But what about prayers for missionaries? How do you pray for people you have probably never met, and who are doing the work you cannot relate to in a foreign land?

Indeed, there are some Christian youths who want to pray for missionaries but they usually forget or have no clue as to what to pray about. Get fired up on praying for missionaries today! Read books on gospel missions – Hudson Tailor served in India; T. L. Osborn and his wife evangelized in India, David Livingstone, South Africa and Mary Slessor, Nigeria. Find out where your Church’s missionaries are and pray for them. Missionaries’ needs include: funds, human resources, machines, preaching permits, language barrier, security and health. As we pray for our present day missionaries, there will be breakthroughs.


There will be breakthroughs as we pray.


How often do you pray for missionaries?

Prayer for today

Lord, help me to pray for missionaries always.
