This is the second part of the disciple-making prayer list that was given to me by Shodankeh Johnson, a faithful disciple maker for Jesus in West Africa.
If this prayer list inspires you to be a disciple maker in the mission field of your own home, school, workplace, neighborhood, and community, you will find a great resource, including video tutorials, here.
7. For fresh anointing and the power of the Holy Spirit on the disciple makers.

9. For protection for workers in the field.
“I am sending you out like sheep among wolves. Therefore be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves.” (Matthew 10:16 NIV)
