To spur you to pray, we are going to post the day by day helps from the end of the book . Enjoy. Pray along.
what to pray.— For the Spirit of God on Mission Work
“The evangelisation of the world depends first of all upon a revival of prayer. Deeper than the need for men—ay, deep down at the bottom of our spiritless life, is the need for the forgotten secret of prevailing, world-wide prayer.”
“As they ministered to the Lord, and fasted, the Holy Ghost said, Separate Me Barnabas and Saul. Then when they had fasted and prayed, they sent them away. So they, being sent forth by the Holy Ghost, departed.”—Acts xiii. 2, 3, 4.
Pray that our mission work may all be done in this spirit—waiting on God, hearing the voice of the Spirit, sending forth men with fasting and prayer. Pray that in our churches our mission interest and mission work may be in the power of the Holy Spirit and of prayer. It is a Spirit-filled, praying Church will send out Spirit-filled missionaries, mighty in prayer.
how to pray.— Take Time
“I give myself unto prayer.”—Ps. cix. 4.
“We will give ourselves continually to prayer.”—Acts vi. 4.
“Be not rash with thy mouth, and let not thine heart be hasty to utter anything before God.”—Eccles. v. 2.
“And He continued all night in prayer to God.”—Luke vi. 12.
Time is one of the chief standards of value. The time we give is a proof of the interest we feel.
We need time with God—to realise His presence; to wait for Him to make Himself known; to consider and feel the needs we plead for; to take our place in Christ; to pray till we can believe that we have received. Take time in prayer, and pray down blessing on the mission work of the Church.
