Week of Prayer - Sunday

Sunday: Pray for Missionaries Around the World

Mark 16:15 He said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation.”

“There is no other activity in life so important as that of prayer. Every other activity depends upon prayer for its best efficiency.” M.E. Andross

God of Love, we pray for those who have left their homes, families, perhaps lucrative employment, in order to carry the gospel of your love around the world. We pray for protection, favor, provision, health, and open doors of ministry. May they know the sweetness of your presence today. I pray especailly for missionary Jim as he mourns the loss of his dear wife, Maralyn. Grant hope and peace as well as comfort to him and his family, and make his pathway clear. Amen
