Commands of Christ: 37

Ask the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.

Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is abundant but the laborers are few;  so ask the master of the harvest to send out laborers for his harvest.”  Matthew 9:37-38

He said to them, “The harvest is abundant but the laborers are few; so ask the master of the harvest to send out laborers for his harvest.”  Luke 10:2

Many of you will have heard of the 10:02 prayer.  It is based on Luke 10:2b.  It was started back in the 1990’s by a couple of friends of mine in Colorado, Kenny Moore and John White.  They were prayer partners and started praying every day at 10:02 for laborers for the harvest wherever they happened to be.  Now, due to their faithfulness (and the faithfulness of those they influenced), many thousands of people around the world pray that prayer daily.  Many of us set our watch or phone alarms to remind us.  It is remarkable how often we see answers to that prayer.  This is a wonderful example of how applying what the Lord teaches us and passing it on to others can change the world.  Set your alarm and share this idea with others you encounter.  The alarm going off is a great reminder to share the concept with others in your presence.
