We receive a vision for our church that this year is the year of miracle harvest which means we believe that God is on the move to harvest an incredible amount of souls to His kingdom. Of course, God through His people has been harvesting souls from the beginning but we believe this year, more than ever, souls are ready to be harvested and we need laborers who are willing to take up the call.
It doesn’t mean that souls will come by themselves to believe in Jesus. How would someone who never hear the name of Jesus can believe in Him? There are occurrences where Jesus appeared to few individuals but most of the time, He wants us to go out there and harvest these souls.
One of the keys to harvesting these souls are by sowing. It is like a seed (any seed), if we keep it, it remains one seed and there is no benefit from it; in the hand of a farmer however, a seed will be planted and a farmer believes that that seed will multiply. How many? No one will know and no one can count them. Everything that is being sowed will multiply. That is the law that God has set on this earth and His promise.
As believers, we need to sow in prayer daily asking God to add souls to our church. This is the first key. Without prayer, we would move with our own strength instead of having God move with His divine power and the result will be vastly different. We might be able to reap a few souls ourselves but the chances they are staying to believe or having personal encounter with God is minimal. If we pray and walk in faith, believe that the amount of souls we will reap will be extraordinary and they will have a divine encounter because the power of God moves through prayer.
In the book of acts chapter 2, the disciples of Jesus continually gathered in their fellowship, praying together in unity and God added to the church daily those who were being saved (Acts 2:47). It is God, through His divine power added souls to the church; our job? Sowing in PRAYERS. There is a sacrifice but if we have the heart of God, we are willing to pray for those souls. Sow in tears and we will reap with joy.
Miracles and multiplications happen through prayer. It is simple, we cannot be called Christians if we don’t pray. Christian means having relationship with Christ through daily prayer.
Psalm 126:5-6 (NKJV)
5 Those who sow in tears
Shall reap in joy.
6 He who continually goes forth weeping,
Bearing seed for sowing,
Shall doubtless come again with rejoicing,
Bringing his sheaves with him.
Lord, I pray that You send believers who want to pray for the lost souls and I pray for those lost souls that they have personal encounter with You, that they hear the name of Jesus through missionaries, preaching and Your divine work and that their souls are being freed from the devil snare and believe in You. In the name of Jesus I pray. Amen.
