The most important part to living missionally successfully is prayer. Oftentimes we don't pray enough. Throughout this month we'll devote one day a week to prayer. Today use these words from A Guide to Prayer for Ministers and Other Servants as a guide:
Almighty God, in every age you have called out men and woman to be your faithful servants. We believe you have called us to join that great company who seek to follow you. Grant unto us today and always a clear vision of your call and strength to fulfill the ministry assigned to us. We pray in the name of Christ. Amen.Pray that God would protect your household from attacks of the enemy. Pray He would direct you ministry and guide you to what is most effective for reaching your neighborhood. Pray you would develop deep transformational relationships.
Go forth now as God's servant. Remember God's presence often and draw strength from the knowledge that the one who calls and sends also sustains. Amen.
