When we work, we work. When we pray, God works.
E.M. Bounds wrote, “All things can be done by importunate prayer. It surmounts or removes all obstacles, overcomes every resisting force and gains its ends in the face of invincible hindrances.”
Please view the above video. We can do nothing without prayer. Prayer is the means by which God affects change in our world. And so, in obedience to Matthew 9:38, we are asking God to amplify the sending capacity of The Wesleyan Church, and ask you to join us in that prayer.
“This initiative will not be accomplished through great vision casting and strategies—though they will be important—it will require Extra-Ordinary prayer. Whomever might be praying for workers now, and for those who have not prayed this prayer, it is going to require something extra beyond their ordinary. An added prayer every day. An added 10-30 minutes every week. Days and weekends of prayer and fasting. There must be an extra expression of asking the Lord of the Harvest to call team leaders, skilled laborers, and multiple churches and personal partners to see this mission accomplished,” said Dennis Jackson, executive director of Global Partners.
Would you consider joining Global Partners in a season of prayer? Prayer that joins God in the work that he has already set in motion. Prayer that aligns our heart with his and sings out his redemption for the nations.
Father, Your will is that all the peoples may praise you; that all of humanity would sing out the song of your salvation.
You have chosen to include us in your plan to draw people back to you, and so may we as The Wesleyan Church around the world respond with obedience, with trust and with faith, that you will accomplish your will in and through us.
May the mission be fulfilled through your Great CGommission given to us—that we may go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
Lord, amplify the number of willing hearts to pray specifically, give generously and go willingly as a means of your grace, to point eternal souls back to you.
