A Prayer to Share in the Harvest.

Hi everyone!

We’re encouraged to connect with you all tonight at 8 pm to continue in our time of corporate prayer and praise as we seek God on behalf of the greater Fort Worth metroplex.

Last week we aimed our hearts to pray the words from Isaiah 55:5, specifically praying for God to send us to nations we don’t know and for nations that we don’t know to run to us.

As we gather tonight, we’ll invest our time in centering our hearts in prayer on one word: harvest.

What comes to mind when you think of or hear the word harvest?

Take a moment to think about it.

I imagine for some people, harvest signals that summer has come to an end, and that holiday gatherings are fast approaching.

But for many, harvest represents the culmination of savory smells and tastes of soups, pies, and ciders that come to mind — with spices in tow!

Yet others envision harvest as the scenic views of changing leaves, chilly weather, and the much-needed hour of rest from timely falling back one hour.

If you were to ask the same question to the 26.7% of people around the globe, roughly 2 billion or so people, that derive their livelihoods from agriculture, the answers would probably be wide-ranging.

I would imagine that most answers would likely find their way back to the main categories of weather, equipment, labor, and time — to name a broad few.

However, even amongst these categories, one must not forget nor forgo the important factor that people share and play in a harvest of any type.

And yet amidst all factors to account for, Matthew 9:35-38 encourages and reminds us THE determining factor of every bountiful harvest is the Lord himself and the people He sends.

35 Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom, and healing every disease and sickness. 36 When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. 37 Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. 38 Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.” — Matthew 9:35-38

The harvest that Jesus speaks of, the souls in need of the gospel in our sprawling Fort Worth communities and on the campuses (and the world too!), is plentiful.

But these precious souls await workers (that’s us!) to faithfully, boldly, and compassionately share the good news of Jesus.

For when this happens, they too are invited as we were to become workers of the harvest sent by the Lord in their daily interactions, places of employment, neighborhoods, and familial and social circles.

And so, that begs the question: who is the Lord of the harvest sending you to share His good news?

Weekly Prayer Call from 8 pm – 9 pm (TONIGHT)

Every Wednesday night from 8 pm – 9 pm will be our corporate prayer and praise time to pray for the city of Fort Worth as well as one another and all that God is calling us to. We will start and end promptly, and look forward to everyone participating in our weekly call.

Join us at 8 pm tonight on Zoom.  Let’s labor and pray to ask the Lord of the harvest to be and send forth laborers to make disciples for Jesus in the communities and on campuses across Fort Worth (and to the ends of the earth).

God bless,
Pastor Alvin & Mallary Brown
