Prayers for Travel | 6 Things to Pray with Your Ministry Team

Are you praying regularly with your ministry team? As a mission trip is coming together, you have many things to prepare. You will be packing, gathering supplies, arranging your itinerary, and booking your airfare. Don’t forget the most important thing to prepare for any mission trip — your heart! Spend time praying over specific needs for your trip, both alone and with your group. If you’re looking for things to pray with your ministry team or prayers for travel, here are some suggestions to help bring focus to your prayer time.

1. Prayers for travel safety

  • Pray the Lord’s favor would be upon you as you travel both in the air and on the ground
  • For wisdom and alertness for every pilot and flight attendant serving on board
  • For good weather and flight conditions
  • That you would have smooth and fast connections for every leg of your journey

The Lord will keep you from all harm — He will watch over your life; the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.” – Psalm 121:8

2. Prayers for open hearts

  • Pray for God to soften hearts to receive the Gospel
  • That He would begin to speak to the people even before your team touches the ground
  • That you would be able to meet both the physical and spiritual needs that the people long for the most

“So is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.” – Isaiah 55:11

3. Prayers for wisdom and understanding

  • Pray that you would overcome any cultural or language barriers
  • That your team would be able to minister the gospel in a way that will best reach the people you are trying to serve
  • That you would have discernment in any spiritual or physical situations you might walk into

“Pray also for me, that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel.” -Ephesians 6:19

4. Prayers for travel health

  • Pray against sickness, disease, and infection
  • For physical safety and an accident-free trip
  • That each member of the team would be strong and healthy and have the energy needed to do the job
  • That jet-lag side effects would be minimal and you would feel well-rested even with little sleep

“The Sovereign Lord is my strength; He makes my feet like the feet of a deer, He enables me to tread on the heights.” -Habakkuk 3:19

5. Prayers for divine connections

  • Pray that the Lord would bring the right people across your path
  • That the Lord would create opportunities to serve and minister that you have not even planned — and that you would recognize those opportunities when they occur
  • That you would find meaningful ways to connect even if you don’t speak the language
  • For lifelong friendships to form

“Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity. Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.” -Colossians 4:5

6. Prayers for a united team

  • Pray against quarreling, arguing or division amongst team members
  • That each person would strive for unity and peace with each other
  • That you would serve one another and put each other’s needs before your own
  • For your love for one another to be a witness to everyone who sees you

“I appeal to you, brothers and sisters, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another in what you say and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly united in mind and thought.” I Corinthians 1:10
