Become part of the U.S. Missions prayer team! As a prayer partner, you join with hundreds of believers like you across the nation lifting up our missionaries, chaplains, their families, and their teams in prayer on a weekly basis. When you give us your e-mail address, you will receive a weekly e-mail of prayer requests submitted to us by our team. (No worries; we won’t use your e-mail address for anything other than this list!)
In addition to the weekly e-mail, you can also find this list at our Facebook page and in the 714 Prayer app (available for iPhone and Android).
Be sure you check out our Missionary and Chaplain Prayer Guide. The prayer guide is constantly updated as we add new missionaries and chaplains. Every day it highlights the missionary, chaplain, and spouse who’s having a birthday that day. You can search for a specific missionary or chaplain, or search by day, week, or month. What better way to remember to pray for our missionaries and chaplains than on their birthday!
Prayer requests for this week . . .
Pray for U.S. missionaries traveling across the country, either to share their vision or to minister in outreaches. Ask God for protection and favor.
Ask God to bless the time U.S. missionaries spend with their families, especially during the holidays. Pray for wonderful times with their children and quality time with those who are home from college for Christmas. Pray for opportunities to share about the hope found in Christ with family members who do not know the Lord.
Pray for comfort and peace for U.S. missionaries and staff members who have recently lost a family member or close friend. Ask God to bring people alongside them who can encourage them during their time of grieving.
Ask God to bless the efforts of several U.S. missionaries and ministries as they provide food and toys for Christmas for children living in poverty. Pray for abundant provision for these outreaches, and that there will be many opportunities to share the love of Jesus.
Pray for the staff and residents of the Teen Challenge Women’s Center in Ventura, California. The facility was destroyed by wildfires. Ask God for a favorable insurance settlement and provision for a new building. Pray for those who lost personal property, work materials, and other belongings. Ask God for protection and wisdom as residents and firefighters continue to deal with fires in California.
Pray for U.S. missionaries who minister in an affluent suburban context where wealth and privilege make it difficult for people to understand why they need the Lord. Ask God to help them engage with their community and find opportunities to share their faith.
Ask God to give wisdom and direction to two U.S. missionaries. They are seeking to discern God’s will for them. Pray for open doors to get to where He is calling them to be.
