Before you get caught up in the stress and busy-ness of holiday preparations, make the decision to make a difference for Christ by praying for the world. Fall celebrations melt into Christmas which merges into winter with almost no separation. If we aren’t careful, praying for others around the world gets relegated to the “back burners” of our minds.
You and your family can impact the world with your prayers. Use the prayer guide below to help guide your prayers. The guide can be copied onto cardstock and cut into bookmark-size strips for easy reference and use. Insert in church bulletins or distribute to Bible study groups.
MONDAY: Pray for international and state missionaries as they, too, enter the busy fall and Christmas seasons. Pray that God will guide their plans to reach out to people with God’s love during these special times of year.
TUESDAY: Thank God for the special skills and abilities He has given state and international missionaries. Ask that He will touch the hearts of their listeners.
WEDNESDAY: Thank God for men and women who have heard His call to serve in countries around the world and in our nation.
THURSDAY: Ask God to give missionaries wisdom and patience in ministering to others in need. Pray that they will have energy during the holiday season with its extra activities.
FRIDAY: Pray that missionaries will develop good relationships with people where they serve and that they will have opportunities to share the story of Jesus’ life and death.
SATURDAY: Ask that God keep missionaries’ families strong and healthy so they can do the work He has sent them to do.
SUNDAY: Pray that God will bless every gathering where His word is preached and the good news is proclaimed.
