10.02 Prayer and 4.03 Prayer

Backyard Missionary � Blog Archive � 10.02 Prayer and 4.03 Prayer

More stuff stolen from Hamo's site. Some good ideas, I might jump on it.

In Organic Chuch he writes of spreading the ‘Luke 10:2 virus’. That’s the passage where Jesus says ‘The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.’ He writes that he has made it a practice to set the alarm on his watch to go off each day at 10.02 AM at which point he will drop what he is doing and take some time to ask God for new missionaries / workers.

Its such a simple idea you could pass over it.

But the beauty of simple ideas is often that they are doable and they don’t require any great skills. So for the last month or so I have been practicing this prayer, at 10.02 each day, just asking God for more people with missionary passion to come and serve with us here in Brighton, as well as praying for more people generally to get off their butts and engage in a missionary life wherever that may be.
