Praying for Your Child’s Heart for Missions

Redeeming Lord,
You have commissioned us to go, to make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in your name, teaching them to obey everything you commanded us (Matthew 28:19-20). How awesome the privilege and responsibility of carrying this precious treasure, the gospel message, in these cracked earthen vessels (2 Corinthians 4:7)! In Christ are given us the nations as an inheritance, the ends of the earth as our possession (Psalm 2:8). Place in __________’s heart a passion for proclaiming your glory, for seeing your name exalted in the remotest corners of the world. If you call him/her to remain among his/her own people and land, still give him/her a concern for your work the world over—to support the missionary effort with prayer and resources; if you call him/her to minister your truth in a distant land, help us to rejoice at his/her high calling and not to hinder his/her going for selfish reasons. Give him/her the courage to follow your call wherever it may lead. May __________ never grow limited in perspective and compassion for one geographical region, but may he/she long to see your kingdom grow to cover the whole earth. Glorify yourself, King of kings, among people of every tribe, nation, people, and tongue (Revelation 7:9)!
Amen.
