DAY 11 – More Laborers
Scriptures to Meditate on and Pray Through –
“‘Have faith in God,’ Jesus answered. ‘I tell you the truth, if anyone says to this mountain, “Go, throw yourself into the sea,” and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him’ ” (Mark 11:22–23).
“Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field” (Matthew 9:38).
How to Pray: By Faith, Doubting Nothing –
Have faith in God! Ask Him to make himself known to you as the faithful, mighty God, who works all things out for His glory. You will be encouraged to believe that He can provide suitable and sufficient laborers for all the fields that need them, however impossible this might appear—but remember, nothing is done without prayer and faith. Apply this wherever and whenever a good laborer is needed. The work is God’s. He can give the appropriate worker for the appropriate field of service. But He must be asked. This is the method He has chosen. We must wait on Him and ask for laborers.
What to Pray: For More Laborers –
What a remarkable call of the Lord Jesus for help from His followers in filling the need for workers. Again, because of the strongholds of Satan in these lands, it is not an easy task to get young people to answer the call and to go out. It is truly through prayer that we can break through this barrier. Our text proves that God wants us to pray for laborers, and if He wants us to pray, He will hear us, and He will answer. Pray for the young people studying in the theological seminaries, the missionary training centers, and Bible institutes, that they may have the courage and determination to prepare themselves and equip themselves for this great effort—the evangelization of the world. Encourage the faithful in your churches to cooperate in the financial support of those who are willing to go. Raise up prayer warriors who will without fail support the youth who give themselves to the fields that are white unto harvest.
