‘And he said to them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.’
Lord of the harvest, cause Your people to be more fully aware of how plentiful the harvest is. Cause Your people to be filled with a knowledge of You that compels them to be Your hands and Your feet. Send Your people into the harvest, Father. Send us. Send us to the harvest You have for us. Send us to go to the harvest of the deaf children in India and Pakistan – whether in person or in prayer.
Most of all, Lord, reveal Yourself to us as the Lord of the harvest. Teach our hearts what that means. Root us in the truth that the harvest is Yours – that the harvest belongs to You. Let us love the harvest for Your sake. Root us in the truth that, as we enter into this harvest in person and in prayer, it is already Your possession. Make us faithful in our simple task of reaping what You have already planted, watered, and grown, of reaping what You will be faithful to ripen in Your time.
Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever and ever.
