Pray for the Mission
The Lord has given His church a great responsibility and privilege to bring His Gospel to the “ends of the world.” When the ends of the world are coming to us the imperative is augmented. But we are more inclined to act first and pray later. Yet, Jesus tells His disciples that while the harvest is ready to be brought in, the bringing begins with prayer for the workers.
Mission Prayer calls you to prayer. Jesus tells us to ask the Lord of the harvest to send workers into the harvest. In this we see the heart of God, the mission of Jesus and initial action for disciples in the buidling of the Kingdom, namely prayer. This is counter to our cultural context that insists we take action and stop thinking. Will you assist in building the Kingdom? Sit down and make prayer for the mission a priority in your life of faith. We invite you to pray with us by joining Texas Mission Prayer and viewing the weekly Mission Prayer List.
November 20, 2016 has been designated as Pray for the Mission Sunday by the Texas District Board of Directors. Please consider celebrating Pray for the Mission Sunday with your congregation. A bulletin insert has been provided under our Prayer Resources section.
In anticipation of Pray for the Mission Sunday, there will be a district-wide 12 hour prayer vigil on November, 19 from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. CST. You may sign up for the vigil now!
