O Father, Son and Holy Spirit, come and bless us to start the journey which is tiresome and difficult but which will bring good cheer and happiness to others and us. Help us as we travel, settle down, meet new people and start new churches and congregations. May we be filled with the Holy Spirit so that we can go where the Holy Spirit leads and do what the Holy Spirit wants. Teach us to pray, preach and work among the people and communities we go to. May every prayer bear fruit, every sermon bring change and every work help people.
We are ever indebted to you dear God for making us accept Christ and his teachings. Our faith has brought great change and strength in our life. What we are preparing to do is only a way of thanking you for your unending mercies. Let the Holy Spirit instill and keep the fire of mission work burning inside so that no allurement, pressure or unwelcoming environment will discourage us from the work which we whole heartedly wish to do. We pray in the name of Jesus who came and lived in our midst so that we may be saved. Amen.
