Staying with our theme of praying for missionaries

Intercessory prayer support is one of the key things that believers in local churches can do to support world evangelism. "All movements of the Spirit in China, within our experience, may be traced to prayer" -- Jonathan Goforth, missionary

Seven things all missionaries need . . . and which people forget to lift them up in prayer over:

1. Victory over mental stagnation
2. Freshness in prayer and in Bible teaching
3. Guidance in how to present the Gospel
4. Deliverance from the temptation to pride
5. Wisdom in relationships with other missionaries
6. Strength to overcome temptations brought on by loneliness
7. A saving sense of humor
