NCBM/Baptists on Mission
Ministry Prayer Requests
1. Pray for the Good Shepherd Children's Home in Guatemala. Pray for the staff and administration and children as their number of children increases.
2. Pray for teams making preparations for mission trips during the holidays. Give thanks for open doors for sharing about the reason that Christians celebrate Christmas.
3. Pray for international students, refugees, and others living in our neighborhoods who may be facing rising persecution as a result of the attacks in Paris.
“Now Jesus was praying in a certain place, and when He finished, one of His disciples said to Him, “Lord, teach us to pray, as John taught His disciples.” Luke 11:1
As we were recently returning from an extended mission trip, we reminisced about our experiences. We realized that it is very easy in our culture to answer our own prayers. We bow our heads and say Grace and ask God to “Give us this Day our daily Bread.”
Then we hop in our cars, run to the store and buy a loaf of bread. We ask to stay warm and safe and then turn up the furnace and buy the best car seats for our children. So easy to provide answers to our own prayers. But many of our international Brothers and Sisters pray for “daily bread” not knowing if they will have enough food for their families that night. If their child is sick, there may not be a doctor or even Tylenol to help them. They often cannot afford to send their children to school. Substandard housing and lack of education and jobs fuel their prayers.
Their prayers are bold. They ask God for things they can’t always provide for themselves. Please think about these two things as you pray for our Brothers and Sisters in Christ:
to use your abundance to help answer someone else’s prayers.
to learn to pray bold prayers, asking God for the things that only He can bring about.
: Dear Lord, Teach me to pray more boldly. May I be more generous in both giving and in faithful prayers. Help me to be more confident in prayers that can’t be answered by my own efforts and that I can have faith in Your answers and Your power. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
