Send more workers!

Discussion in 'Bible Study' started by IKTCA, Sep 26, 2007.

  1. Send more workers!

    But what kind of worker am I?

    When he saw the crowds,
    he felt compassion for them,
    because they were weary and worn out,
    like sheep without a shepherd.

    Then he said to his disciples,
    "The harvest is abundant
    but workers are few.

    Therefore, pray to the Lord of the harvest
    to send out workers into his harvest." [Matthew 9:36-38]

    There are many crowds who are not submitted to the Lord. They are disobedient, violent, seeking fame, of much deceit, following their greed, and without order. Jesus is telling me to pray for more workers for the crowds.

    The workers who will have compassion for these unlovable people as Jesus did. The workers who will pray for them to the Father with loud cries as Jesus did.

    But how can I pray for such workers if I am not one?
    How can I ask other workers to be compassionate while I am not?
    How can I expect them to pray with loud cries if I don't?

    Lord Jesus,
    Now I see that these words are more for me than for other workers.
    You want me to be one first, before asking for more.
    Shame becomes my name.
    Though I pray, I become voiceless.

    Lord,
    Remove this shame from me.
    Give me voice of righteousness so that I can lift my prayer to the Father's throne.
    I indeed must become a worker pleasing to your eyes.
    Amen.

    (This will be tonight's prayer)
