GFA World national missionaries have a special heart to share God’s love with the people around them. Because they work with their own people (or people nearby), they don’t face many cultural barriers. God is using these dedicated servants in amazing ways! They often work where no-one else is serving, sharing God’s love with people who have never heard. We’re so excited by how lives are being transformed, and people are finding eternal hope!
National missionaries also face challenges. But God helps and strengthens them as we pray. We’d love for you to join us with helping them in prayer!
Pray for Resources
National missionaries live simply, like the people they serve. But they still need support to live and minister. Just like us, they need to feed their families. They also love to travel around, sharing God’s love. And they need resources so they can tangibly show Jesus’ love to others. This helps them give the hungry food and the thirsty drink. And they love to provide life-changing gifts to the poor.
Please pray missionaries will have the resources they need to serve the people around them. Pray God will raise up generous partners in the West to provide for missionaries’ needs.
Pray for Discernment
Missionaries can demonstrate Jesus’ love in lots of different ways. Our missionaries evaluate the unique needs where they are. They pray for wisdom to respond in the best way. They need discernment to know what would work best in each place. For example, some communities desperately need proper sanitation, like toilets. Others may need income-generation gifts like goats or sewing machines. Our missionaries need God to show them what would most impact the people they meet, in Jesus’ Name.
Please pray God will give our missionaries wisdom. Pray they can respond in the best way to show God’s love for each person in need.
Pray for More Missionaries
There is lots of work to be done and many needs. But the workers are few. If we had more missionaries in Asia and Africa, we could do much more! We are so excited about the impact our missionaries have had. But many more people still need to know about Jesus’ love. We believe your prayers can help call a whole new generation of missionaries! These missionaries will have a profound impact as they share the Good News with people in need.
Please pray God will call many more missionaries. Pray that they will obey His call. Pray that they will anointed and effectively equipped for God’s work.
Pray for Renewal
Missionaries are surrounded by many needs. It would be easy for them to grow weary of doing good. Some may feel alone. Others may just be tired. Missionaries need to be strengthened and renewed by God.
Please pray for national missionaries to be encouraged and renewed. Pray God will keep them passionate about sharing God’s love. Pray that God will strengthen them by His Holy Spirit.
Pray for Open Hearts
Our missionaries meet all kinds of people, with all kinds of stories. Some of them might not be open to hearing about God’s love. They may be rebellious young people, desperate widows or alcoholic fathers. They may need someone to pray and encourage them. No matter what their story, everyone needs Jesus’ love. But only God can open their hearts.
Please pray God will open hearts to His love. Pray that God will transform lives as our missionaries share Jesus’ love in their words and actions.
