Pray for your missionaries

Why pray for missionaries?

-We need to expand our vision for the world. We care too little about the impoverished, abused, forgotten, and uncared for around the world. Missionaries we know--sent out from the churches we go to--are working among people like this and need our prayers. When we pray, we begin to care - and our vision grows.
-More importantly, prayer makes victories happen in people's lives.
-More importantly still, God has commanded us to pray.
-Furthermore, the next generation does not seem to be 'adopting' the great not-so-young missionaries our churches have sent out. They need our support, so let's support them in prayer and in other ways.

If you go to a chapel in Canada, I would strongly encourage you to sign up for the email prayer items MSC sends out for Canadian missionaries serving abroad. To sign up for these "Missionary Prayer Items," email msc@msc.on.ca and let them know you'd like to be added to the list.

Also, whenever you meet a missionary you click with, be sure to ask them to add you to their prayer email list.
