Pray for the Persecuted Church | Ten Ways to Pray for You Missionary
I grew up in a church were there was always an emphasis on missions. Missionaries routinely visited our congregation and shared what God was doing on the mission field. For this, I am very thankful. My one regret is that for some reason I developed a perception that missionaries were somehow "superhuman" and did not have the same difficulties as the rest of us. I should have known better, but I did not.
After years in the ministry, visiting with countless missionaries who have come to our church, and my own visits to the mission field, I now clearly understand that missionaries are just like the rest of us. Their calling is extraordinary, but their needs are what is common to man.* This understanding has changed how I pray for missionaries. The information on this site about prayer is a collection of items that in cases are redundant but taken as a whole are intended to stimulate us in praying for missionaries. Use these items to formulate you only daily prayer guide for missions.
*Men, why are you doing these things? We also are men, of like nature with you, and we bring you good news, that you should turn from these vain things to a living God, who made the heaven and the earth and the sea and all that is in them. Acts 14:15 ESV
This general outline is not original to me but I do not know where it came from so I cannot provide proper credit.
There is very little persecution of the church in Uganda and the Ugandan government is not at all hostile, however there are many other parts of Africa that see great persecution of the church, especially by Islamic governments. I encourage you to regularly remember and pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ who suffer for their faith. International Christian Concern maintains a list of countries where Christians are presecuted.
