Nearly 2000 years after the Ascension of Christ, the majority of the world is still not Christian, and over a billion people have never heard the Gospel.

The Problem: “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few” (Matthew 9:37).

The Solution: “Beseech the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into His harvest” (Matthew 9:38).

Be part of the solution.
Join us in praying daily for future missionaries.

Christ our God, the source of wisdom and Bridegroom of the Church,
You called the Apostles to follow You and to become fishers of men,
giving them authority to cast out unclean spirits and to heal every disease and infirmity.

You commissioned them to make disciples of all nations and to feed your sheep.
On the day of Pentecost, You sent the Holy Spirit to fortify them,
enabling them to fill people?s lives with Your saving love.

Continue to act today, loving Savior, for the good of Your Holy Church.
Send Your Holy Spirit upon dedicated men and women;
inspire them to respond to Your Great Commission and to serve You as missionaries,
for the building up of Your Body, the Church.

Through the prayers of all the holy missionary saints,
strengthen all who are preparing to serve Your Holy Church in humility and love.
For You are a loving and merciful God, and unto You we give glory,
together with Your eternal Father, and Your all-holy, good and life-giving Spirit,
now and forever and unto ages of ages. AMEN.

Prayer for Missions

God of truth and love: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, Hear our prayer for those who do not know You. That they may come to a saving knowledge of the truth, and that Your Name may be praised among all peoples of the world. Sustain, inspire, and enlighten Your servants who bring them the Gospel. Bring fresh vigor to wavering faith; sustain our faith when it is still fragile. Continually renew missionary zeal in ourselves and in the Church, and raise up new missionaries who will follow You to the ends of the world. Make us witnesses to Your goodness full of love, full of strength, and full of faith for Your glory and the salvation of the entire world. Through the prayers of all the missionary saints, Have mercy on us and save us. Amen.
