Grief and Loss Prayers
Grant Them Provision
Father, I'm praying for these (name them) who are serving in
ministries or are on mission for You...
Whenever they're on mission with You, there is cost involved, especially travel expenses. As Nehemiah prayed before he spoke to the king, these people have asked for favor with those who could and would give, and I thank You for those who have. (Nehemiah 1:4, 5-6a, 11; 2:4–5, 8b)
I'm grateful for people who give financially to cover their costs and those who share resources to meet other needs. Help them be cheerful givers who give generously, and then increase their finances and bless them in every way so they can keep on being generous. Enable them to give again and again to those on mission and in ministry—and then in return, meet all of their needs from Your glorious riches in Christ. (Romans 12:6a, 8b; 2 Corinthians 9:7–8; Philippians 4:16–19)
May Your provision for them also include health, strength, and stamina. Give those on mission the ability to adapt to any changes in time, climate, or diet. Keep them from getting sick and protect them from injury. Give them a sensitivity to any cultural differences, and keep them from inadvertently offending anyone. (Luke 10:1–7; 1 Corinthians 9:22)
In Jesus' name, amen.
