Prayer for China: A 365 Day Global Prayer Journey - April 7 (Day 98)
Today we zero our prayers in on a place Jesus has told us specifically how to pray - the waiting harvest. Please read "The Less Evangelized" on pages 222-224 in light of Jesus' words to His disciples as they waited at the well after the Samaritan woman went back to tell her neighbors about Jesus:
And he said to them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest." (Luke 10:2, ESV)
As you see in the reading there are so many areas of China, so many groups to be reached. In every case, the answer starts just as it did in Samaria: with one person convinced of the truth of the message who just can't stop talking about Jesus. Whether that person is a missionary or a native, God is glorified.
Since God has given me a special heart for Muslims, my prayer focus today is on the Muslims of China. I hope that the video below will help you understand more about how to pray for one of the many people groups in China that desperately need laborers for the harvest.
