In Luke 10:2, Jesus told his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.”
Our denomination is encouraging people to pray on October 2 (10/2 – get it?) for God to send forth more workers in North America. Regardless of what your denomination may be, we hope you will join us in asking God to call forth the following specific workers to our harvest field of Chicagoland:
people group researchers
neighbors to live in strategic areas
English tutors and teachers
child care helpers
college ministry workers
counselor or mental health professional
doctor or nurse
We believe some of the people the Lord will call do not live in Chicagoland right now. Pray that the Lord will clearly guide them to moving here and that the transition process will be smooth.
We also believe that some of the people the Lord will call already live in Chicagoland. Pray that the Lord will help more Chicagoland followers of Jesus to become aware of God’s heart for the nations to know Him and God’s purposes in moving people from every nation to our great city. Pray that these followers of Jesus will grow in love toward other sojourners and that they will become equipped to build cross-cultural friendships.
