As believers and followers of Jesus, we’re called to pray for the good news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to spread over all of the earth.
Finally, brothers, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may speed ahead and be honored, as happened among you . . . (2 Thes 3:1 NIV) Pray for your Pastor and the missionaries that your church supports that God will bless and prosper their work. Pray also for the family of your Pastor and the families of the missionaries that you support.
. . . for a wide door for effective work has opened to me, and there are many adversaries. (1 Cor 16:9 NIV) Remember that there are spiritual opponents and challengers who stand against the gospel of Jesus Christ. But the Bible reminds us that God has given us the victory. It is part of our calling to pray for that victory to be manifested in every evangelistic outreach. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. (1 Cor 15:57 NKJV)
But the word of God increased and multiplied. (Ac 12:24 NIV) By the grace and mercy of God, our prayers can turn a situation around by faith in Jesus.
. . . therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.” (Mt 9:38 NIV) Ask the Lord in your prayers to send out more evangelists so that His good news of salvation may bring about the end-time harvest.
Of course, we should pray for our unsaved relatives and friends to be saved. It’s a measure of our love for them that we desire to pray for their salvation. Remember what the Bible tells us: If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. (Joh 15:7 NIV) Rejoice!
