This Is What Prayer for Missions Looks Like

Nate Saint’s prayer for the Aucas (a savage people for whose conversion to Christianity he would ultimately sacrifice his life) is the finest missions prayer I’ve heard or read. I love its doxology, its soteriology, and its eschatology. Glorious. Just about unimprovable, when you consider how his life backed it up. Pray like this:

‎”May the praise be His, and may it be that some Auca, clothed in the righteousness of Jesus Christ, will be with us as we lift our voices in praise before His throne. Amen.” (Nate Saint, as recorded in Through Gates of Splendor)

Such a desire for God’s glory to abound through the conversion of the lost around the world—and their participation with us around the throne—is the heart behind the missions hymn For the Sake of His Name. Grace.
