It’s been said “Out of sight, out of mind!” How true that is with so many things and even relationships we have. We had a great Missions Conference last year. We had a missions emphasis, and had supporting missionaries visit with us, and even connected with some of them via Skype. Awesome—right? Sure, but what about last week and today? Are we not just being faithful to give our missions offerings, but also praying for our missionaries as well?
Praying for our missionaries is one of the ways we can grow together outward! Our desire is to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with new families, see them receive Jesus as Savior, follow Him, and join themselves to our church family! Our missionaries have the same goals in mind so let’s keep them in prayer.
Take a few minutes and click on this link and give it a read. It gives some good pointers of how to really pray for our missionaries, keeping them in our minds and hearts even though they may be out of sight!
What has helped you to keep our supporting missionaries in your hearts and minds?
