Send the Laborers
Matthew 9:37-38 tells us, “Then He (Jesus) said to His disciples, ‘The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Therefore, plead with the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into His harvest.’”
Even though God obviously wants laborers to come forth who will reap the great harvest, this doesn’t occur just because it is His desire. He works on the earth through people, not independently of them. We must ask!
The “fatigue call,” is a call for soldiers to work but not at war (not with weapons). Though the church will always need to involve herself in spiritual warfare (2 Corinthians 10:3-5; Ephesians 6:12), Holy Spirit is pointing out that those sent for the harvest are not so much the warriors but the reapers, the evangelists, and the messengers.
It is written in Isaiah 6:8, Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?” And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”
Father, we thank You for the incredible pleasure of partnering with You to save our city. Thank You for raising up the Church as a trumpet of the gospel. We honor those in our past who have paid great prices to spread the gospel. They are now ready to hand the baton to us.
Though in our day this will look different - the communication tools will be different, the modes of transportation will be different, and the political spectrum has changed - the assignment and its basic goal will be the same: take the gospel of the kingdom to the ends of the earth.
We now call forth laborers into the harvest.
We cry out to Jesus, the Lord of the Harvest:
Awaken the church to this glorious partnership You have offered us.”
We ask this in the name of Jesus, believing that we have received what we asked You for; DuBois and the surrounding area shall be saved!
The harvest is coming to DuBois and the surrounding area, and cannot be stopped!
