A grain field on the north shore of the Sea of Galilee.

Key Verse: Matthew 9:37-38 (NKJV)

Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore, pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.”

 

“CAUTION!” This prayer will change you, your family, your income, your giving, your friends, your church, the use of your time, your character, your personality and everything about you. This is Jesus’ prayer request! As soon as you offer that prayer, you become the answer. You are now called to be a labourer. Please read Isaiah 6:1-8. If you confess that “Jesus Christ is Lord,” you have only one answer, “Here am I, send me!” Never sit around waiting for God to push and pull you into service. Your free will controls the gas pedal and the brakes. Push the “Pedal to the metal” and GO FOR IT!

PRAYER FOR TODAY:

Lord, I am making decisions; please guide me. I believe that the decisions are from You. Now I will initiate action as Your laborer. Amen!

100 PERSONAL WORDS:

My Dad served as a Missionary (21 years in Egypt), an Educator, and a Pastor. My DNA is serving Jesus. At age 16, Jesus’ laborers surrounded me at school and at my part-time job. I made the decision to give my life to Christ in December of 1952. The following June I had a powerful encounter with the Holy Spirit and in August at a Youth Camp I prayed, “Lord Jesus, I would like to serve You full time for my entire life. Would You please give me a clear call into Pastoral service and as an Evangelist.” He did, and I have “pushed the pedal to the metal” since that time!

Your fellow labourer in the harvest,

David

P.S. [Note: This “P.S.” was originally written on June 10th, 2016] Two years ago this month I had a dream come true. I rode the “Billy Graham Parkway” in Charlotte, North Carolina, on my 1996 Honda Gold Wing motorcycle. At the Billy Graham Library, I visited the gravesite of Ruth Graham. Billy, who is 97 now, will be buried beside her if the Lord’s return does not happen first. Billy’s grandson, Will Graham, joined me in Charlotte and we rode our motorcycles to Asheville, where the Billy Graham Retreat Centre, “The Cove,” is located. That was my first motorcycle trip in the U.S.A., and  I enjoyed every minute…praising God and singing as I rode!

  2. That is awesome that David had that trip to the Cove with Will Graham. Will looks like Ron in that photo. God does grant the desires of our heart and He knew He would be taking his servant David home soon. Never learned to drive a motocycle but was just out on my bicycyle. Good service today about being fishers of men. Trust your day is wonderful saints! Hope we haven’t lost you altogether Beverlee.

  4. Will Graham did come to our city for a crusade I think it was last November , and of course many churches knew he was coming. I could not attend though there were
    others I attended in the past. In a large building with many people I know I would have
    a seizure. I am not clostaphobic safety myself, and for all was my concern as well.

  5. It was so good to see David so full of energy during that trip; and the evident joy of being able to ride his motorcycle again.
    Thank you for posting the pictures of that ride and David’s visit to Billy Graham Library in Charlotte with Will Graham.
    Thank you Reynold for the picture of the grain field; Yes, the harvest is ripe; Lord send more harvesters into the field; I pray Lord; at this time in my life lead me in Your Way into the harvest field. Amen!
