“Therefore, pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.” – Matthew 9:38, ESV
This week we are shifting into a new prayer assignment, one that I have borne as a personal responsibility to fulfill for the past seven years. In 2012 YWAM leaders gave me the word “Ekballo” (more to come on this revolutionary word soon) as the name of the pre-send rallies that would lead to The Send in the Camping World Stadium. Because of this word, I moved to Mott Auditorium in Pasadena, California at the US Center for World Mission and launched the Ekballo House of Prayer.
Starting March 1st through April 9th, 2013, we started praying Matthew 9:38 that the Lord would send forth (ekballo) laborers into the unreached people groups. For the last 7 years we have been doing 40 day seasons of fasting, praying this ekballo word. Now with The Send having been launched, I believe this present 40 day fast will ekballo laborers all across the world into the harvest fields to finish the task. Now is the time to move beyond a passive response to Jesus’ command. Let us carry this heavenly assignment with daring diligence and prophetic passion. It is not a suggestion, it’s a command! Take this prayer up with me and let us shift history together!
Lord of the Harvest! We beg you the Lord of the harvest! Hurl forth laborers into the harvest fields across the earth in these 40 days. Move the church worldwide to pray this revolutionary prayer as You the Master has commanded!
