United in Prayer: Day 15



  • 21 Days of Prayer

“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God. For just as the sufferings of Christ flow over into our lives, so also through Christ our comfort overflows. If we are distressed, it is for your comfort and salvation; if we are comforted, it is for your comfort, which produces in you patient endurance of the same sufferings we suffer. And our hope for you is firm, because we know that just as you share in our sufferings, so also you share in our comfort. We do not want you to be uninformed, brothers, about the hardships we suffered in the province of ASia. We were under great pressure, far beyond our ability to endure, so that we despaired even of life. Indeed, in our hearts we felt the sentence of death. But this happened that we might not rely on ourselves but on God, who raises the dead. He has delivered us from such a deadly peril, and he will deliver us. On him we have set our hope that he will continue to deliver us, as you help us by your prayers. Then many will give thanks on our behalf for the gracious favor granted us in answer to the prayers of many.” 

2 Corinthians 1:3-11


Converge International Ministries sends our workers to the least-reached places on earth, where darkness still prevails. Our global workers are on the frontlines, sharing the gospel in countries that are physically and spiritually against them. Many of them can relate to Paul and the hardships he faced in preaching the name of Jesus. 

Many of our global workers don’t have a huge network locally they can rely on. They, like Paul, have had to learn how to rely on God in the midst of the suffering they might face on a daily basis. They don’t have many other believers to help walk with them through their troubles and hardships. They are isolated as they navigate the physical dangers of their task as well as the spiritual ones. They are in desperate need of our prayers to strengthen them!

As you gather to pray today, ask God to remind our global workers to set their hope on Christ. If you know any missionaries who are in difficult or dangerous situations, pray specifically for them to be delivered by the mighty hand of God. If you know any that are struggling and in need of comfort, ask God that they would be comforted. Share a message of support and encouragement with them.

Prayer for Those Who Are Sent
Almighty God, we praise you as the Father of compassion and the source of all comfort. We are grateful that wherever our Converge global workers go, you go with them. Your power can sustain them in difficult times, and you can bring hope and comfort through the power of Jesus. We also ask that we would be ministers of comfort to them as we remember them in prayer and encourage them in the work they are doing and in the losses they face.
