A Tribute to Missionaries

“Have I not commanded you?  Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9 NKJV

Taking that leap of faith at God’s calling to be a missionary may seem enormous, as are those first encounters of the mission work where you wonder just what did you get yourself into, and what possibly was I thinking?  A commonality among all who have ever performed missionary work, either local or afar is that all have expressed a very deep sense of gratitude for their everyday lives and that their lives were dramatically touched by the caring and generosity of those receiving the gifts of time and labor the missionaries have offered. So today, I would like to offer a special prayer for missionaries.

Dear God, thanks for being with those that minister to others, locally, regionally or globally.  We ask that you reach out to them so they might know of your presence and watchfulness over them.  Keep them safe from harm and relieve other fears they may be experiencing. May they provide their services with confidence and remain focused on their purpose.  Help provide emotional preparation for the tasks that are presented to them. Help them remain emotionally strong and provide an open mind to future opportunities.  God we pray you watch over them since we might not always be present in their experiences.  And we pray, people will know they are Christians by their love. Amen.

Thanks to all the missionaries who are serving or have served others with love and care.
