A Prayer for World Missions
You are the Lord, our God, the Holy One, our Savior. May we never forget that you are our Savior, you and you alone. You want all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth. You do not want anyone to perish, but rather you desire that everyone would come to repentance. It is in you that we put our hope, in you the living God, who is the Savior of all men, especially of those who believe. You desire our salvation so much that you gave your one and only Son. You did not send him into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world. For this we praise you.
Your Son is also our Savior, even the Savior of the world. You exalted him as Savior that me might give us repentance and forgiveness of sins and be the Savior of the church. Your Son, Jesus Christ, gave himself as a ransom for all mankind. He came into this world to seek and save the lost. He is the good shepherd who laid down his life for the sheep. For this we praise Jesus Christ, the Lord.
We are humbled, O God, that you have dared to call us to be fellow workers with you in this great cause of the salvation of mankind. You have made us your ambassadors as you make your appeal to mankind through us. You are pleased through the foolishness of our preaching to save those who believe. Father we pray that we may be able to arouse people and to save some of them. We plant the seed of your word and water it, but we know that you make it grow. Apart from you we can do nothing. We have no competence in ourselves; our competence comes from you. Help us as we proclaim Christ, admonishing and teaching everyone, so that we may present everyone to you, perfect in Christ. Amen.
