Pray for the Harvest 2017


Your church is invited to Pray for the Harvest during the month of May. We want to see God move in a powerful way across our country. Never before in our history have we sensed a greater need to corporately call on God through prayer.

God answers prayer.

Last May during Pray for the Harvest a young woman was invited to attend our church by her friend. At the end of the service I welcomed her and talked with her about Pray for the Harvest. Right in the middle of our conversation she decided to follow Jesus. The harvest is plentiful!

“Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field” (Luke 10:2b NIV).

To reach people in the harvest field with the gospel we must pray. To see lost people enter into a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ, we must pray for their salvation.

Prayer Walking: Intercession on Location

In Luke 10:16 Jesus sent the disciples out two by two, expecting them to engage and encounter people who needed to hear the Gospel.

I challenge you to pray, without closing your eyes or bowing your head, as you walk around your neighbourhood. The first time I went prayer walking it felt a little awkward. Now it is thrilling to talk with God as I walk in my community, interceding for people who have spiritual needs. As you prayer walk, observe the people and the places. Do not be afraid to stop and talk to people.

“Prayer walking is intercession on location with information in cooperation against opposition for glorification.”1
