 Prayer for the Trip 
Prayer for Your Trip
Prayer is essential. Without God going before us we might as well stay home. Without God blessing our ministry we won’t accomplish anything. Prayer must be the foundation for everything we do in our service to the Lord.
Each person on the mission team should have a prayer partner – someone on the team who will pray for you daily. In addition, there should be family and friends back home enlisted to pray for you and the team on a daily basis. Perhaps you could ask pastoral staff, the deacons, the missions committee, the ladies missionary fellowship, or the congregation, as a whole, to intercede on your behalf while you are on this mission trip.
You should plan time in your daily schedule to spend alone with the Lord in prayer. During this time of prayer open your heart up to the Lord asking Him to convict and cleanse you from sin. Renew your previous commitment to him and offer a fresh surrender of your life to him for Him to use you as He deems fit. Following is a prayer list to use as a starting point:
  • Possessions: Luggage and belongings not lost, stolen, or broken.
  • Documents: Protection of tickets, credit cards, passports, and money.
  • Customs: Passing through inspection without a problem.
  • Mechanical: No mechanical issues with planes, trains, boats, cars, or any other means of transport.
  • Schedule: Good connections and travel-time allowing us to fulfill ministry commitments.
Health and Safety
  • Protection: Shielded from sickness, accidents, crime, natural disasters, terrorists, dangerous animals, and drastic climate changes.
  • Physical Fitness: Time for adequate sleep and exercise.
  • Nourishment: Supplied with safe food and water.
  • Relationship to God: Continued development of spiritual intimacy with the Lord through times in the Bible and prayer; God would grant you a teachable spirit and give you a servant’s heart; that you would rest in the power of the Holy Spirit throughout the mission trip.
  • Relationship to Satan: God's protection from demonic attack (cf. spiritual armor).
  • Relationship to Self: Freedom from discouragement, fear, and doubt.
  • Relationship to Others: Demonstration of purity, humility, boldness, wisdom, patience, and love for people.
  • Relationship to Ministry: Fruitfulness in bringing sinners to Christ for salvation and equipping saints for effective ministry.
Mission Team
  • Oneness: Express unity, love, good communication, patience, and harmony in the exercise of spiritual gifts.
  • Flesh: Resist jealousy, envy, bitterness and pride.
  • Flexibility: Grace for cultural adjustments, dealing with jet lag, being away from family and friends, and lack of privacy.
