OCMC News - Prayer for Missionaries
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.Be part of the solution.
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).
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.
