Don’t Pray For Safety
So maybe safety isn’t the right prayer: for me, for you, for missionaries, for anyone. Instead, let’s pray for obedience, fruitfulness, thankfulness, and wisdom. Let’s pray that we live according to the Spirit of the law, in step with Jesus, and unafraid of what circumstances are (always) fully in God’s control. And let’s plead for the trust necessary to scrape ourselves free of fear.
