Seek God for Increased Laborers and Sweeping Global Harvest

Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few; Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest (Mt 9:37-38; Acts 1:8; 2 Tim 2:1-4)

It is God’s heart desire to raise up faithful laborers for the Church and harvest of souls. In God’s word, believers are specifically commanded to pray for laborers for the harvest. (Mt 9:37-38) Today’s Church is starved for those who will labor fervently in prayer, preaching, teaching and missions. True revival always involves an explosion of dedicated laborers.  Indeed, the only hope for America is a flood of Spirit-empowered intercessors, preachers, laborers and witnesses. Furthermore, we not only need a flood of laborers, we need laborers who will declare God’s whole nature and full biblical truth.

As we pray for laborers, we must also consider whether we are willing to be God’s answer to that prayer. In other words, are we fervently laboring ourselves? Are we ourselves willing to boldly proclaim the God of Scripture and stand strong for right doctrine? Are we indeed willing for God to call our loved ones to dangerous foreign mission fields? May God help us fulfill Christ’s kingdom by not only praying for laborers, but by becoming laborers ourselves.

  • Lord of the harvest, thank You for the unspeakable joy of serving in Your harvest! Please call millions more into ministry, missions, prayer, preaching and Christian witness. Raise up a mighty army who will pay any price and endure any hardship to glorify Your Name. Father, please send forth a mighty flood of laborers into the harvest. Remove spiritual blindness, expose false religion and send forth a sweeping harvest of souls.

  • Lord, I repent and commit to be a faithful worker and to pray for laborers for the harvest. I trust You to fill me with a burning passion to labor and pray for Your kingdom and glory. As a church, we covenant to call and equip all members to be laborers in the harvest. Banish from our hearts the shallowness that fails to make disciples.
