7 Powerful Prayers for Church Outreach

Mark 16:15
Almighty God, You gave Your people an assignment to fulfill here on earth. You said to them “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation. Lord I pray that this is will be the mission of our church. I ask that You keep our hearts and minds open so that we willingly seek to touch those outside the four walls of the church; those who do not know You, Amen.

Jeremiah 1:7
Eternal God, You told Jeremiah not to find fault in his age, you told him to not say ‘I am only a youth’ because everywhere You sent him, he will go, and whatever You command him, he shall speak. Lord I pray that the youth in every church do not feel inferior due their age, instead please strengthen them so that they can go wherever You send them to spread Your message as missionaries for Your Kingdom; this is the prayer of our hearts, Amen.

Matthew 28:19
Thank You for Your divine Word. You have called the church to make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. I pray Your church does not just bring people to You, but I pray that we keep them in Your presence. Let us make Your people disciples, not mere acquaintances of You. I pray that we never become content with our outreach mission, but let us continuously strive to do better, Amen.

Acts 20:28
Awesome God, I pray that we as a church pay careful attention to ourselves and to all the flock. Your Holy Spirit has made us overseers, to care for the church of God, which You obtained with Your own blood. Lord, I pray that we each see this as our divine duty to look after Your people. Let us be good shepherds to one another: tending to, guiding and (spiritually) feeding one another, Amen.

Isaiah 61:1
Precious God, I thank You because Your Spirit is upon this church. Father, You have anointed and commissioned us to bring the good news to the humble and afflicted! You have sent me to bind up the wounds of the broken-hearted, to proclaim release to the captives and freedom to prisoners. Father in heaven, let Your Spirit remain in this house and amongst Your people so that we can touch the hearts of men; this is our prayer, Amen.

Hebrews 6:10
Anointed One, I thank You for Your just nature. You will not forget the work that we do and the love that we have shown You as we have helped Your people and continued to help them through our outreach schemes. I pray that we do not do it to gain a reward here on earth, but I pray that we do church outreach because we want to share Your kingdom with those we meet. I declare that You will remain at the center of our hearts, Amen.

Galatians 5:13
Hallelujah God Almighty! We have been set free by You! We rejoice and are glad in this truth. Yes, the church was called to be free, but I pray that we do not use our freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love. I pray that Your love is our guide and motivation for outreach. Let this not be an opportunity for the self to indulge but let the spirit within us be sharpened to do more for Your Kingdom, Amen.
