Mission Trip Prayer Groups

IMG_1599In Matthew 9, Jesus says to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.”

We are committed to sending as many people to the harvest as possible this year, but we must not forget that the most crucial piece in missionary work is prayer. Since the harvest is the Lord’s, how much more should we be in fervent prayer to the Lord of the harvest?

Not everyone can go on a trip, but everyone can pray. Without prayer, we are working out of our own effort, and with prayer, we are in step with the Spirit to guide, lead, and speak.

A prayer team is a group of people committed to praying for a specific short-term trip for the year. You will pray for the leader as he/she recruits a team, for the ministry partners as they prepare the work, for the team as they prepare culturally and spiritually, for their logistics and travel, and for their time on the field and return. We also encourage you to be creative as you encourage them in the process and as they go!


Once you choose a team to pray for, we will connect you with that leader. We will also give you some suggestions on how to best encourage them.

This is a great opportunity for a family, d-group, or life group. If you have questions in the meantime, please contact missions@longhollow.com
