“Then He said to His disciples, ‘The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest’” (Matthew 9:37-38 NKJV).

Will you answer the prayer to be a gospel laborer?

Jesus told His disciples that multitudes of people were ready to be led into the Kingdom, but there weren’t enough workers to lead them. He instructed them to pray to the Lord that more workers would answer the call. I have prayed this prayer continuously for years. Since planting our church 28 years ago, we have always seen the need outweigh the help. God has trusted us with multitudes of people who need to hear the gospel and be discipled. Yet, the task is often overwhelming. Many cry for help, but few answer the call to be helpers. We still pray this prayer today, that God would send workers to help with the harvest in this generation. We always begin this prayer with, “Lord, send me.”

PRAYER: Father, we pray to You as the Lord of the harvest, send out laborers who will bring in the harvest of souls to Your Kingdom. Lord we not only pray for more laborers, we also say, send us. We want to be busy sowing gospel seeds and making disciples. Strengthen our hands for this good work. In Jesus’ name, amen.
