Praying Through the Bible #130
TEXT: Matthew 9:35-38: "And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people. But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd. Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few; Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest."
In recent years, Christian missions organizations have identified a part of the globe that they refer to as the 10/40 Window. According to the Christian Broadcasting Network, "The 10/40 Window is a rectangular-shaped area extending from West Africa to East Asia, from ten degrees north to forty degrees north of the equator. Often called 'The Resistant Belt,' this specific region, encompasses the majority of the world's Muslims, Hindus, and Buddhists -- billions of spiritually impoverished souls." Two-thirds of the world's population lives in this region made up of 67 countries in Africa, the Middle East, and Asia, and many of them have not heard the Gospel -- not even one time.
Evangelism researchers have estimated that two million people search for God on the internet every day. It is true today, even as it was in Jesus' day, that the harvest truly is plentiful, and I hope that you pray regularly for souls to be saved. However, let's consider how we can tackle this issue even more effectively like Jesus did.
