As president of Christians in Action Missions International, I urge you to join me in praying this simple, yet deeply profound prayer, based on Matthew 9:35-38: Lord, send laborers into Your harvest.
We believe God is calling up an army of prayer warriors who’ll daily join together to pray. The idea is to team up into squads of five who will commit to pray this simple six-word prayer each day at 9:37 AM and PM—we call this the 937PrayerChallenge. As difficult as it may be to daily get together physically, each squad should designate a leader who will remind their squad to pray this simple prayer each day, at 9:37 AM and PM, via whatever means appropriate and available.
In Matthew 6:20a-21, Jesus said, “…store up for yourselves treasures in heaven…For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” We encourage all who commit to praying this simple prayer, to daily, as you pray, set aside at least a dollar to support missions efforts that are seeking to fulfill Jesus’ commission to “make disciples of all nations.” Hence, at month’s end, after faithfully giving to your own local church, each prayer warrior will havepotentially gathered at least $30 to $60 to contribute to the missions program, missionary, or ministry of your choice.
Will you join me in obeying Jesus’ simple, yet profound command to pray? We invite you to register on-line for the 937PrayerChallenge to indicate your commitment to daily pray. Or you may want to complete a 937PrayerChallenge commitment card and mail it to our office at 1318 E. Shaw Ave, Ste 308, Fresno, CA 93710.
May God richly bless you as you daily ask Him to send forth laborers into His harvest.
