Sub-Saharan African Peoples

When God calls and His people respond to missionary service, committing their lives to minister and share the gospel in another country, extended family members are also affected by His call on their loved ones’ lives. As you pray for missionaries, please remember to pray for their family members who have remained in the United States. Intercede for aging parents who are struggling with health issues and for siblings who bear the load of caring for aging family members. Intercede for adult children of missionaries, especially those who have grown up on the mission field and are now studying and working in the States where everything seems foreign to them. Ask God to protect them, to work in their lives to bring them to Himself, and to provide family and friends to come alongside them for support. Pray that the hearts of all of their extended family members in the States will long to know Jesus Christ, who is “the way, and the truth, and the life” (John 14:6 ESV).
