DAY 9 – God’s Spirit on the Mission Field
Scriptures to Meditate on and Pray Through –
“I am a man of prayer” (Psalm 109:4). “We will give our attention to prayer and the ministry of the word” (Acts 6:4). “Do not be quick with your mouth, do not be hasty in your heart to utter anything before God. God is in heaven and you are on earth, so let your words be few” (Ecclesiastes 5:2).
How to Pray: Take Time – Time is one of the primary standards of value. The time we give a thing is proof of the interest and value we place on it. We need time with God in order to realize His presence, to wait for Him to make himself known, to consider and feel the needs we ask for, to take our place in Christ, and to pray until we truly believe we have received what we ask. Take time in prayer and receive blessing and provision for the mission work of the church.
What to Pray: For God’s Spirit on Our Mission Fields –
“While they were worshiping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, ‘Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.’ So after they had fasted and prayed, they placed their hands on them and sent them off. The two of them, sent on their way by the Holy Spirit, went down to Seleucia and sailed from there to Cyprus” (Acts 13:2–4). The evangelization of the world depends, first of all, upon a revival of prayer. Even deeper than the need for workers is the need for prevailing prayer on behalf of those already laboring on our mission fields. Pray that mission work may be done in a spirit of waiting upon God, hearing the voice of the Spirit, and sending workers out with fasting and prayer. Pray that in our churches, our missionary interests may be directed by the power of the Holy Spirit and concentrated prayer. It is a Spirit-filled, praying church that will send out Spirit-filled, praying missionaries, equipped to invade the Enemy’s territory.
