Intercessory Prayer is the most powerful tool and an essential
part of World Missions. Your prayers are needed.
Please include the following mission prayers in your daily communication
For the WMC that
we will be a committee that continually prays together and studies together
so that we will be able to discern God's will for us as we help lead our
diocese into mission.
For all Christians
being persecuted for their faith, that the Lord will bless their suffering
and show us how we as a diocese may respond to their need.
For Bishop Magangani and
Diocese of Northern Malawi as they meet the spiritual and physical needs
of the people of Malawi.
For Bishop Iker as
he discerns the spiritual and mission needs of this diocese.
For Health... There are many
dangers to health through food, poor sanitation and disease. It is not God's
will that illness threaten the mission field. See [Deut 7:15], [Ps 97:10],
For Protection in Travel... There
is danger in traveling on narrow, unpaved roads, over mountains, and in
bad weather. See [Is 43:2].
For Unity... Differences arise
among missionaries, especially team ministries in isolated situations. See
For Protection of Spirit... Discouragement,
a sense of failure, and a sense of being out of the will of the Lord are
weapons used by the enemy. See [Deut 31:6], [Matt 18:18], [James 4:7], [1Peter
For Protection of Mind... Climate,
cultural differences and loneliness, contribute to a breakdown of normal
reasoning. The missionary needs to claim the Lord's peace promised in scripture.
See [Ps 42:11], [Ps 147:3], [John 14:27], [Heb 4:9-11].
For the growing involvement of
young people seeking to serve the Lord through mission.
The diocese maintains an
intercessory prayer list for mission teams and other events in diocesan
life. Diocese Prayer
