30 Days of Prayer for the Red Hill Haiti Mission Team
DAY ONE: Isaiah 6:1-8. Gratitude. Offer a prayer of gratitude that our team has stepped up to the plate to go to Haiti. Thank God for their willingness, and pray that God would continue calling people to go wherever He would send us.
DAY TWO: Psalm 85. Revival. Pray that God would bring revival to the nation of Haiti. God is sending a team to be healing hands, but our prayer is for more than physical healing. Ask God to go before our team and open the Haitians hearts to the gospel.

DAY FOUR: Numbers 13:25-33. Courage. Pray that our team would courageously serve, love, and share the gospel. Many of them are still trying to raise the necessary support to fund their trip.

DAY SEVEN: Isaiah 61:1-7. Speech. Our team is going to Haiti to do medical missions, but doing medical missions is simply a platform from which we will proclaim the gospel. Pray that the Lord would give them a voice with the people they are serving.
DAY EIGHT: Luke 5:12-16. Touch. When Jesus heals the leper he touches him. Many of the Haitians will be physically ill. Some of them will have sores and will be contagious. Pray that our team, as they literally touch the sick, would be the very hands of Jesus.
DAY NINE: 2 Corinthians 2:14-17. Smell. Sometimes our team will have to work quickly and won’t be able to verbally share the gospel.

DAY TEN: Psalm 34:8-10. Taste. Pray that our team would be fully satisfied in Jesus. Pray that they would not look to results, not to salvations, and not to the number of people served. Pray that the team would be delighted in all that Jesus has done for them.
