Take the Luke 10:2 Challenge


July 27, 2017

What do you do at 10:02 every morning? Do you want to be a part of a movement of intercessory prayer?
Just as our daily lives are upheld by the power of prayer, missionary activity will only succeed through being firmly rooted in missionary prayer. Missionary prayer asks for big things. 
This kind of prayer is not the humble prayer for aid and comfort, or even the heartfelt prayer of joy and thanks. Missionary prayer is invoking God at the most powerful and elemental level, asking Him for the gift of himself and the transformation of the human soul.
 Luke 10:2 states, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.”
Missionary prayer implores God to create fertile ground in a specific person’s heart, so that He may them come and live within. The Bible gives us clear confidence that our prayers are heard and responded to by the Father. It is becoming a WGM-wide practice to pause and pray - pausing meetings, stopping other tasks - at 10:02 every morning. 
Although this step of commitment to prayer may seem small, consider the impact of many of us pausing each day to pray for God to transform the hearts of people.
