I read this article on praying for missionaries on Wycliff.org and thought you might like to read it and pray for us on our journey, and prayer for Daniel and his family in Africa, and all missionaries.
Here are some of the main points, but the article goes more in depth:
Pray for Open Doors
“Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful. And pray for us, too, that God may open a door for our message, so that we may proclaim the mystery of Christ, for which I am in chains” (Colossians 4:2–3, NIV).
Pray for Boldness in Witness
“Pray also for me, that whenever I open my mouth, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel” (Ephesians 6:19, NIV).
Pray that God’s Word Will Spread
“Finally, dear brothers and sisters, I ask you to pray for us. Pray first that the Lord’s message will spread rapidly and be honored wherever it goes.…” (2 Thessalonians 3:1, NLT)
Pray for Protection
“Pray, too, that we will be saved from wicked and evil people, for not everyone believes in the Lord” (2 Thessalonians 3:2, NLT).
Pray for Their Ministry
“Pray first that the Lord’s message will spread rapidly and be honored wherever it goes…” (2 Thesslaonians 3:1, NLT).
Pray for God’s Guidance
“So we have continued praying for you ever since we first heard about you. We ask God to give you a complete understanding of what He wants to do in your lives, and we ask Him to make you wise with spiritual wisdom” (Colossians 1:9, NLT).
Pray for Refreshment
“We also pray that you will be strengthened with His glorious power so that you will have all the patience and endurance you need. May you be filled with joy” (Colossians 1:11, NLT).
Partners in prayer
“Dear brothers and sisters, I urge you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to join me in my struggle by praying to God for me. Do this because of your love for me, given to you by the Holy Spirit” (Romans 15:30, NLT).
