Praying Effectively for Your Missionaries By David Sitton
In Warfare Prayer, David Sitton describes some of the obstacles that cross-cultural field missionaries experience. Put the face of your own missionary on the page, and learn how to better intercede for those with whom you partner.
“The one concern of the devil is to keep the saints from prayer. He fears nothing from prayer-less studies, prayer-less work, prayer-less religion. He laughs at our toil, mocks at our wisdom, but trembles when we pray.” – Samuel Chadwick
2015-2016 To Every Tribe Prayer Directory
The To Every Tribe Prayer Directory lists our Sending Churches, Field-based Missionaries, Missionary Appointees, Missionary Trainees, Home-based Missionary Staff, and Board of Directors. Please take these prayer directories and use them as a resource to pray for each individual and church listed. Put it in your bible, hang it up at your desk at work, put it on your church bulletin board, or give it to a friend. Help us mobilize the church to pray for our current workers and to “pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest” (Matt. 9:38).
“Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving.” – Colossians 4:2
To Every Tribe was founded in 2003 by David and Tommi Sitton, former missionaries to Papua New Guinea. To Every Tribe has a two-year missionary training program at our Center for Pioneer Church Planting (CPCP) and sends missionaries through our Missionary Sending Agency (MSA). We invite you to contact us to learn more about how you can become part of Christ’s mission to reach the nations with the gospel.
To Every Tribe exists to extend the worship of Christ among all peoples by mobilizing the church, training disciplemakers, and sending missionary teams to plant churches among the unreached.
Distinctives & Core Values
We believe God is sovereign over all, including the process of salvation, and strive to be God-centered.
We believe every believer is to be publicly baptized immediately following conversion.
We affirm the work of spiritual transformation is the Holy Spirit’s, and humbly seek to minister in the freedom Christ has granted from all external expectations other than those specifically stated in Scripture for Christians.
We humbly commit ourselves to be a Spirit-led mission fueled by intercessory prayer.
We expect satanic resistance as we spearhead the proclamation of the gospel in territories of spiritual darkness. We expect the Holy Spirit to use any or all of the spiritual gifts described in Scripture, and depend upon them, in order to advance the gospel.
We are convinced Jesus is worth embracing a life of sacrifice, suffering, and martyrdom in order to advance the gospel as senders and goers.
We seek to train obedience-oriented disciples who make other disciples in planting indigenous churches that are self-led, self-supporting, self-theologizing, and self-reproducing.
We invest in extensive theological and missiological pre-field training of missionaries to equip them to thrive on the field and to enhance their ability to plant healthy churches.
We are committed to ministry through communities of believers where individual gifts work together for the good and effectiveness of the whole, and model the body of Christ to unbelievers.
