Gracious Father, I want to pray for your workers all over the world who put their lives in your hands in order to spread your gospel. I pray for those who are traveling, whether for rest and vacation, or for meetings with far away supporters, or for the effort to increase the territory of their outreach. I ask for their protection. I ask for them to rejoice in the joy of your salvation. May they always feel the excitement from it and the need to share about your grace. I pray for those left at their home communities. Lift their hearts and sustain them until the one traveling rejoins them. For the rest of us, Father, give us your message to share today in our everyday surroundings. We trust you, Father. We hope in the Lord. I pray these things in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.
“Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and uphold me with a willing spirit.” (Psalm 51:12 ESV)
