Loving Father, thank You that You are my God and Father and that Jesus came to die in my place – to take my sins upon Himself so that I might be forgiven and receive everlasting life.. by grace through faith in Christ. Lord I know that we live by faith and not by sight and that is the desire of my heart, and so I am coming to You to lay my requests before You.. with thanksgiving knowing that every day of my future is in Your hands – and I pray that every day of that future will be a day that remains the center of Your will for my life.
And so Lord I am asking for a grant for the mission trip to which I have been invited – and Lord I only want to go if this is Your will. Lord You know that I don’t have the funds available and so I am just going to lay this before You ---
Lord if You would have me go on the trip, I pray that You would provide the funds that I would need and all the necessities that such a trip demands. But also Lord if this is not what I am to do at this moment, I pray that You will make it equally clear to me.
Whether or not I am to participate in this mission trip I pray that it would be a wonderful success and that many would come to put their trust in Jesus. I pray that it would be a trip where every one who has taken up the challenge would draw closer to You and that Your name would be glorified throughout – I ask this in the precious name of Jesus Christ, my Saviour and Lord,
