21 Days of Prayer Devotional
Day 3
Brandon McKenzie / Acts 13


“Then He said to His disciples, ‘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 field.'” (Matthew 9:37-38 ESV)

Thought of the day

Brandon mentions how praying this passage led him into action. Jesus also knew that his disciples needed to pray this prayer and first gain the Lord’s heart for the lost that they might, themselves, become laborers in the harvest field. 

Questions to ponder

-Have I prayed earnestly for God to send laborers into the plentiful harvest fields that surround me?

-What can I do to begin praying this way?

-What specific areas in my city and community need laborers the most? When, today, can I spend time in prayer for gospel workers to be sent into those areas?

“Getting to be a part of Take the City was such a blessing both in seeing how God moved in the lives of the people I met as well as how he moved in my heart. I was so encouraged to be surrounded by people willing to passionately pray for their city and the people in it. As we worshipped, people would stop and ask what was going on and we got to talk and pray with them. I felt a greater desire to pray for our nation grow in me as we sang and prayed together.”
