"The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few.
Therefore beseech the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into His harvest,"
~ Matthew 9:37-38
The Importance of Prayer in Evangelism – Matt Slick
"Prayer is essential in the Christian's life. Without it your witness will be far less effective and you will be far more vulnerable to the enemy. When you witness, you need the blessing and support of the Lord. You need to be in fellowship with Him. Prayer makes this all possible."
Would you consider praying this prayer as an individual, as a family, or as a church?
Lord of the Harvest, we see that Your harvest field is ripe and ready all over this nation and the world! We long to see Your kingdom come on this earth and to do everything we can to obey Your commission to go into all the world. Help us to consider serving You by answering Your call to go, or to generously release our funds so that others might be sent. May we as individuals, as families and as Your Church, respond to Your command in whatever way You call us! We want the harvest to be plentiful and powerful! Show us how to pray effectively for the protection, boldness, clarity, health, and fruitfulness of missionaries. May we actively seek to align ourselves with Your heart and respond to the need! We pray that our hearts would be obedient to the desires of Your heart, so that all men would come to a saving knowledge of the truth–the Lord Jesus Christ, in Whose powerful Name we pray.
The time is short! Please be a world Christian who:
PRAYS – continuously
GOES – in response to the call of God
SENDS – generously and wholeheartedly
