Fervent Prayer: Outreach
“... The Lord appointed seventy-two others and sent them on ahead of him, two by two, into every town and place where he himself was about to go. 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 10:1-2)
Throughout Holy Scripture, it is clear to us that we have been commissioned by Christ to go forth into the world as his ambassadors (2 Cor 5:20). As we do this, we are to proclaim the Gospel wherever we go, endeavoring to raise up disciples as we ourselves follow after Christ who is with us “to the end of the age” (Matt 28:19,20).
Today our prayer focus turns to our efforts as Mercy Hill as we reach out to the local communities of Bayview, Lake Country, and Rock County with the love of Jesus Christ and the message of the Gospel.
Please join us in prayer for local outreach and our 20/20 projects:
That the Holy Spirit would grant wisdom and direction in projects of evangelism and relief care where the need is greatest.
That the financial provision needed would be provided for by God and through his saints.
That many within our church would hear the call of God to action on his behalf and respond as Isaiah did by declaring “Lord, here I am! Send me.” (Isaiah 6:8)
And please join us in praying that above all, the work would be anointed and blessed by God, for His Glory and the salvation of the lost. Soli Deo Gloria!
