I realize that it can be a daunting task to pray regularly for us during the summer but please know that it makes all the difference! Missions is more than God’s people serving him. Missions is all about God at work. If He isn’t working in and through our team to accomplish His purposes, than nothing eternal is getting done.
With 7 days in a week, here are 7 ways you can pray for our Uganda Team!
Day 1—RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD—Loving and studying God’s word, Strong prayer life, Filled with the Holy Spirit, Maturing spiritually, Progress over sin.
Day 2—PHYSICAL/EMOTIONAL—Adaptation to climate and culture, Health in the midst of disease, Safety in danger, Victory over negative emotions.
Day 3—TEAM RELATIONSHIPS—Team leadership to staff disciplers to student participants, Team unity as a witness to nationals, Unity with ministry partners.
Day 4—ABILITY TO COMMUNICATE—Language barriers, Interpreters, Cultural adaptation/understanding, Value for nationals and long-term ministry.
Day5—EFFECTIVE MINISTRY—Teaching, Preaching, Witnessing, Boldness, Open doors, Prepared hearts, Fruitfulness, Follow-up.
Day 6—VICTORY OVER DARKNESS—Satanic or demonic oppression, sinful and worldly desires, eyes to spiritually see the schemes of the enemy.
Day 7—UGANDA—Government–national and local, Political situation, Continued open doors, Outreach in Kampala, surrounding villages and beyond.
I hope that this short list will help give you some ideas because it is easy to resort to “God bless so-and-so in Uganda. Amen” Ask for God to help as you pray intensely, intelligently and with His Spirit’s power! Your prayer and partnership mean so much!
