Cottage Prayer Meetings Have Begun!
Last night was our first of several Cottage Prayer Meetings as we prepare for our upcoming Missions Revival. Some of the families enjoyed good fellowship, but the focus of the evening was on prayer. And the focus of tomorrow’s prayer meeting is on prayer. And our Wednesday night sermon series is on prayer.
Prayer. Prayer. Prayer.
We probably can’t have too much of it.
If we want God to do a great work in our hearts and throughout our church for the cause of missions, we need to seek HIM. We need to pray for it.
If we’re lacking in wisdom, we’re told to ask for it. So, too, should we ask for God’s power, and moving, and for him to give us a heart for souls like we have never seen before.
In praying for missions, I am finding myself more burdened for missions. That is how this thing works.
As I am more burdened for missions, I want to pray more, and give more, and I am constantly seeking the Lord’s direction on whether he would have me go.
I would love to go to India if that’s where God called me. The need in California is great, but the need in India is at least 10 times or perhaps 100 times greater in India than here.
Maybe God will call my son to be a missionary to India. I would love that.
But I don’t suppose I would be so thrilled to send my son across the world if I were not burdened for souls in India.
If my life were about me, I’d think, “Oh, but I want my grandkids to be close to me,” and I would put my own family’s comforts above the call of God.
Let us pray for missions and missionaries and for God to use us in His global work! Pray.
