A Prayer for Global Missions

Father of all,

 

You love me wide as the world,

and You still have space to love every other an equal span.

So Your love wraps round this earth

seven billion times over.

 

I want my love to go the distance too.

But I confess I’m caught in my own tiny world;

caring most about the things I can see, taste, and touch.

Caring most about myself.

The seven billion others an afterthought, at best.

 

I need Your Holy Spirit to widen my vision,

and to open my heart.

 

Give me keen eyes to see the slum children in Thailand.

Bring light to their darkness and break every chain. Thank you for providing for so many of their needs already.

 

Give me a soft heart for the persecuted church.

May our brothers and sisters in Iraq, North Korea, Nigeria, and elsewhere be emboldened and sustained. Protect families, give your people courage. We know your light will shine in the darkness.

 

Give me open hands to give to camp ministry in Ecuador.

Help the staff and volunteers at Camp El Faro to be wise and responsible. We want to see many young lives receive salvation this summer.

 

Give me prayerful lips to intercede for the youth of Poland.

May the programs organized by Fala Ministries introduce abundant life to many young people. Raise up mentors to foster the next generation.

 

Give me listening ears for the needs in Malawi.

Thank you for Mo & Jo and for their faithful service. Bless their ministry over and over; provide for every need. Be glorified in the lives of the orphans and widows who are being reached in Your name.

 

And finally, give me a thankful spirit for the work you are doing here in Canada through Vision Ministries.

Churches are being planted that reach the global masses arriving here on our shores. Use us to grow Your church, Father!

 

Holy Spirit, You have widened my vision

and have opened my heart.

Through you my love goes the distance;

I am caught in the blessing of being part of your work around the world.

My love wraps round this earth

seven billion times over.

 

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

    Thank you for your beautiful prayer, and for including us. Today, I am not very well, and your prayer really touched me. Please would you add Moses to your prayers. He survived a crocodile attack two years ago, and recently had both hips reattached. The left leg is doing well, but he has developed an infection in the right leg. He is scheduled for further surgery Feb.23. Thank you. Thank you, Jo
