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 the initial action of disciples in the building of the Kingdom, namely prayer. This is counter to the 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.
Questions about how your congregation can use the Mission Prayer List, we have provided some suggestions.
