Take the Luke 10:2 Challenge!

Take the Luke 10:2 Challenge!

In a full conference room at WGM headquarters, a staff member’s phone plays a small tune. Downstairs, a similar alarm sounds from someone’s pocket. In an office across the hall, another person looks up from a computer and sees that the clock reads 10:02 a.m. Work and conversation trickle to a stop. Throughout the building, employees bow their heads.  

Back in the conference room, the leader of the meeting asks, “Will someone pray?”

Since January 2017, members of the WGM family—staff and missionaries alike—have been participating in the Luke 10:2 Challenge. The name refers to Luke 10:2 (NIV), in which Jesus tells 72 appointed disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into His harvest field.”

The challenge was inspired abroad when an Albanian pastor encouraged missionary Nathan Waggoner to pray Luke 10:2 at the corresponding time each morning. By taking part in the challenge, WGM seeks to root its goal of doubling its impact in an appeal to God—a faithful entreaty for Him to act miraculously according to His power and desire. Indeed, Scripture tells us that God desires for all people to hear His message (Acts 1:8, 2 Peter 3:9, Matthew 28:19). And for these purposes, we know we need more workers.

The time is ripe for the kingdom of God to welcome even more people. Therefore, the time is ripe to pray. To participate in the Luke 10:2 Challenge, set your alarm for 10:02—a.m. or p.m. At the time you select, take a moment to pray—by yourself or with others—that God will send workers from around the world to mission fields around the world. He who hears our prayers is faithful, and we’re believing Him for a great impact!
