A Prayer For Workers

30 04 2015

“He told them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.”  Luke 10:2

Many people don’t think that they can be a part of missions work in the world because they don’t have the ability to go, or they don’t have significant resources to give.  However, one of the greatest things that a person can do to impact the world for Christ is to pray.

Some will say, “I guess if I can’t go, and I don’t have anything to give, then I guess all I can do is to pray.”  However this kind of thinking diminishes the incredible power and the impact that prayer has on the work of world missions.  John Wesley said “God doesn’t do anything on the earth except through believing prayer.” and if this is true, then for the Kingdom of God to mightily advance in the world, it will happen through the faithful petition of His disciples asking for laborers to be sent into the world.

EM Bounds said, “The prayers of God’s saints are the capital stock of heaven by which God carries on his great work upon earth. God conditions the very life and prosperity of his cause on our prayer.”  Don’t forget that prayer is the primary work of Missions, and every opportunity to go or to give is built upon the solid foundation of Prayer.
