The Need For Prayer

I want you to think about a passage of scripture that has gripped my heart for a little over a year now.

“You did not choose Me, but I chose you. I appointed you that you should go out and produce fruit and that your fruit should remain, so that whatever you ask the Father in My name, He will give you.” John 15:16

This verse has some beautiful words from Jesus to His disciples. He first addresses an important thought. “I chose you.” It’s pretty cool that Jesus, the Son of God, chose his disciples and appointed them (commissioned, sent) to go out and bear fruit. It takes the burden off of them and put’s it on himself because it was his decision. Jesus takes it a step further in the next line saying “so that whatever you ask the Father in My name, He will give you.”

SO THAT. I think those words are important. What if Jesus gave us this mission to make disciples of ALL nations, a HUGE mission, so that we’d have to go to him in prayer to accomplish anything.

If we are going to accomplish anything close to what Jesus has called us to we need to fall to our knees and pray. Pray for the work, pray for workers, pray for each other, and pray for Jesus to be lifted high.

We need you to join us in prayer to see all the nations reached with the good news of the great savior! Let’s ask in Jesus name!
