And He was saying to them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore beseech the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.” (Luke 10:2)
What is Christ’s solution to the great need for workers in the mission fields of the world? The solution is to pray! God ordained prayer as a means to send out laborers into His harvest. Apart from prayer, our efforts on strategizing, equipping, and resourcing to send out missionaries and church planting teams, are doomed to fail.
Consider who the Lord of the Harvest is. Our fruitfulness in reaching the unreached peoples in our communities and beyond is dependent on Him. The One who sent Moses, Paul, and William Carey is able, willing, and ready to raise up, use, and bless the efforts of Christ-like and competent workers from the harvest and into His harvest. He is able to revive churches to become active forces in reaching the nations with the Gospel. The harvest is His, and He gets the glory.
Will you pray daily in faith, with compassion for the lost, and prevailingly for much needed Gospel workers?
