“And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come” (Matthew 24:14).
Would you become a prayer missionary for Gospel Outreach, asking God daily for the fulfillment of this promise in the 10/40 Window? The needs there are great, and the challenges overwhelming, but with God all things are possible.
“It is a part of God’s plan to grant us, in answer to the prayer of faith, that which He would not bestow did we not thus ask” (Great Controversy, p. 525).
“As the will of man cooperates with the will of God, it becomes omnipotent. Whatever is to be done at His command may be accomplished in His strength. All His biddings are enablings” (Christ’s Object Lessons, p. 333).
In his book The Weapon of Prayer, Methodist pastor and author E. M. Bounds wrote: “God has of his own motion placed Himself under the law of prayer, and has obligated Himself to answer the prayers of saints. He has ordained prayer as a means whereby He will do things through saints as they pray, which He would not otherwise do. Prayer is a specific divine appointment, an ordinance of Heaven, whereby God purposes to carry out His gracious designs on Earth and to execute and make efficient the plan of salvation.”
Evangelist Dwight L. Moody has written: “I believe in definite prayer. Abraham prayed for Sodom. Moses interceded for the children of Israel. How often our prayers go all around the world, without real definite asking for anything! And often, when we do ask, we don’t expect anything. Many people would be surprised if God did answer their prayers” (Golden Counsels).
So, as we pray, let’s pray specifically and know that God will make good on His word:
- Pray for more Bible workers in the 10/40 Window. “The harvest is great, but the workers are few. So pray to the Lord who is in charge of the harvest; ask Him to send more workers into His fields” (Luke 10:2, NLT).
- Pray for the Bible workers. “Dear brothers and sisters, I urge you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to join me in my struggle by praying to God for me. Do this because of your love for me, given to you by the Holy Spirit” (Romans 15:30, NLT).
- Pray that the workers will be bold. “Pray also for me, that whenever I open my mouth, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel” (Ephesians 6:19, NIV).
- Pray that God will lead the efforts being made. “So we have continued praying for you ever since we first heard about you. We ask God to give you a complete understanding of what He wants to do in your lives, and we ask Him to make you wise with spiritual wisdom” (Colossians 1:9, NLT).
- Pray for perseverance. “We also pray that you will be strengthened with His glorious power so that you will have all the patience and endurance you need. May you be filled with joy” (Colossians 1:11, NLT).
- Pray for receptive hearts in the 10/40 Window. “Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful. And pray for us, too, that God may open a door for our message, so that we may proclaim the mystery of Christ, for which I am in chains” (Colossians 4:2, 3, NIV).
- Pray for impact. “Finally, dear brothers and sisters, I ask you to pray for us. Pray first that the Lord’s message will spread rapidly and be honored wherever it goes” (2 Thessalonians 3:1, NLT).
- Pray for safety. “He will rescue us because you are helping by praying for us. As a result, many will give thanks to God because so many people’s prayers for our safety have been answered” (2 Corinthians 1:11, NLT).
Thank you for your continuing prayers.
