Intercession for Costa Rica

Lord God of the Universe,

Thank you for loving us and dying for us.
Thank you for using us to spread the gospel throughout the whole world.

I pray right now for the missionaries in Costa Rica
and the dear people they minister to.
I pray for the girls and boys in the Child of Hope Schools,
for them to come to believe and trust in Jesus.
I pray for the after-school programs for the Chicas and Chicos,
for these kids to find spiritual mentors and friends.
I pray they would see a difference in their Christian leaders
and learn to hope for a better, brighter future.
I pray for you to protect these children from abuse,
from drug and alcohol addiction.
I pray they would finish school and find careers
and most of all, answer your calling on their lives.

I pray for the women we met there,
that you would fill them with hope and courage.
Provide for their physical and emotional needs.
Protect them from abuse--may they be bold enough to stop it.
Encourage them in their spiritual walk and make them mighty warriors.
I ask for the Holy Spirit to fall on their homes and churches.

Inspire and provide for their pastors and pastors--
help them understand the Word and articulate it clearly.
Fill the churches with a passion to reach their communities.

I pray for the missionary structure and the language school in San Jose.
Raise up valiant leaders and visionaries.
Equip them with resources and energy to start new ministries
and reach more people.
I pray that the mission teams who travel there would be an asset,
not a drain,
on the missionary work.
Help us to give generously, advance the kingdom and re-energize the missionaries.

I pray for your work to flourish.
We wait for you and on you
to do your mighty acts on our behalf.

We love you and worship you!
Amen.
