2Corinthians 2:14 — Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ,
and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place.
Lord we pray for those on the mission field. Thank you for the men and women who go to the crowds who listen intently, eager to hear the gospel and see the miraculous signs. By the power of the Holy Spirit evil spirits are cast out of their victims, that the paralyzed or lame are healed and shouts of great joy can be heard in the cities. When the people accept the message of God, use your missionaries to pray for the new believers to receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit. And as soon as they lay hands on the believers they receive. For the Lord is the Spirit and wherever the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. Send missionaries who have the Spirit to give wise advice or message of special knowledge. Lord you are faithful to protect those who are pressed on every side by challenges, but they are not crushed. If perplexed they are not driven to despair. Your sufficient grace is all they need. Your power works best in weakness, so let them boast that their weakness is the opportunity for the power of Christ to work through them.
Your missionaries are strong and courageous and their work for you is rewarded. You are faithful to strengthen and guard them from the evil one, his plans, plots, schemes, pits and snares. Conceal them when troubles come and hide them in your sanctuary. Place your servants out of reach on a high rock. Send your power to them in the fields of the earth and they shall see large numbers of people believe and turn to you Lord. They shall declare that the Sovereign Lord is my strength. You make them surefooted as a deer, able to tread upon the heights. Your presence lets them know not to be afraid because you are with them. They have no need to be discouraged because you are their God. Strengthen, help them and hold them up with your victorious right hand. There is no weapon formed that can succeed against your servants. They silence every voice of false accusation because they enjoy these benefits as servants of the Lord, and their vindication comes from you because you have spoken it.
Send your word through the missionaries because it always produce fruit, accomplishing all you want it to. Your word prospers everywhere you send it. The people of God will live in joy and peace. Even the mountains and hills will burst into song and the trees of the field will clap their hands. Bless the men and women who go into all the world to preach the Good News to everyone. What your workers forbid on earth is forbidden in heaven and what they permit on earth is permitted in heaven. Justice is given to the oppressed and food to the hungry and the Lord frees the prisoners. Every missionary, man and woman, need only ask and you will give them the nations as their inheritance and the whole earth as a possession.
