Prayer 2021 - April 29 - Pray for Laborers pt 2

Scripture For Today:

 

Hebrews 13:19


“I particularly urge you to pray so that I may be restored to you soon.”


Pray for Laborers pt 2

Yesterday, I introduced the subject of praying for laborers to be sent into the harvest. I also shared that nowhere in the New Testament did Jesus ever say that we were to pray that God would save anyone.  This is because He did all He needed to do TO SAVE EVERYONE. He sent Jesus to the Cross, honored the sacrifice of Jesus in His death – then RAISED HIM UP from the dead. Amen!

Now, it is FINISHED. The plan of Salvation for all of mankind is finished. There is not one more thing that needs to be added. Not one! Amen!  All that is left is to tell everyone so they can get in on it! Glory to God! Don’t shout me down when I’m preaching good!

I left off yesterday that you are probably not a very effective witness for your family. Oh, I’m not saying you are a negative influence. I’m saying that you are usually “too close” to them. They know your flaws inside and out. They know you’ve been preaching to them (in a lot of cases, it is called “criticizing their decisions” – and they have grown accustomed to just shutting you off when you’re talking about accepting the Lord, etc. They don’t even know they are doing it in most cases. 

As I shared yesterday, Acts 16:31 tells us that we can affect the salvation of those in our own house. This can also apply to our immediate family. We can also pray for those of our extended family. But, if every time you see them at funerals or family reunions or holidays, and you start in on them to “accept Jesus before it’s too late,” they will start to avoid you like the plague. Amen!

What should you do?

During your prayer time, you need to BIND THE POWER OF SATAN over their lives and CLAIM THEIR SOULS for the Kingdom of God…but don’t stop there.

Pray, “Lord, send someone to them to talk to them about you. About what you accomplished for them. Lord, send someone to them whose opinion they will respect and actually listen to and have a conversation with. I can’t do it. If you send me and if you provide the opportunity to do so, I’m more than willing. But, I know that you know that one particular person who can reach my loved ones more effectively. That one person who can have that kind of conversation with them that will frame the conversation in such a way that they will finally see that YOU are their Savior and that will lead my loved ones into the prayer of salvation. I am looking forward to receiving that phone call or having that conversation when they tell me, “Guess what just happened to me? I’m saved!” 

Praise God!  I remember when I was born again on January 25th 1992 at 1135pm ET in a little empty apartment in Columbus, Georgia. That night, in my despair, God invaded my life. I had nobody there to lead me in the prayer of salvation, but I knew enough and prayed it myself and felt the Holy Spirit come upon me and change me. 

My wife had been praying for me for over four years since SHE was born again. I was just like the example I gave about your family members. I was like, “yeah, yeah…whatever…I’m already saved…blah, blah, blah…”

But WHEN it truly happened…oh Praise God!  After I had about a 15 minute prayer and praise session with the Lord, my next thought was, “I have to tell my wife!”  And I jumped on the phone and we had another prayer and praise session over the phone with both of us crying and rejoicing. Amen!

Although I was alone…I have had similar stories from my family members. When they finally “got it” – I have received a phone call telling me! Praise God! That is what you are praying about, right? That they be born again?

It does not matter who leads them to the Lord, as long as they get led. That is all that matters. 

So pray that the Lord would send THAT ONE PERSON who can accomplish the job. Amen!

Let’s Pray!

Bob Thibodeau

Pastor Robert Thibodeau has been in online ministry since starting his own podcast in mid-2009. Within about six months, he was offered a slot on nationwide Christian AM radio. His broadcast was heard in four major markets for one year.

He then started what today is called, "Evangelism Radio" and went live 24/7 beginning on October 4, 2010 and continues to this day. Now with over 50 broadcasters submitting programming on a weekly basis, Evangelism Radio has listeners in over 160 nations and all 50 states. It was also ranked by Shoutcast.com as #1 in the world in the Christian Talk genre on many occasions.

In late 2017, Pastor Bob began an interview style podcast called "The Kingdom Cross Roads Podcast." On this podcast, Pastor Bob interviews Christians from various walks of life on how they use their Faith to achieve success. Authors, recording artists, business CEO's, non-profit leaders and pastors and ministers frequent the show and provide amazing insight to build your faith. In only 3 years time, The KCR Podcast has published almost 900 episodes and Pastor Bob conducted over 700 interviews!

In early 2018, in response to the lack of any Christian themed podcast hosting platform in the market place, Pastor Bob coordinated with the iconic Mark Asquith and his team, with the result being "FaithCasters.net." A "Christian podcast hosting and marketing company created by Christians for Christians."

Due to the immense success Pastor Bob has achieved in the online ministry world, he is often asked by others "How to start a podcast." Not wanting to refer Christian brothers and sisters back into the world for help in establishing a Christian themed podcast, he started to develop the "Podcast-Training" platform offered through our ministry. He conducts training on a weekly basis to assist others in the development of their own personal podcast as well as ministry related podcasts that can air on Evangelism Radio.

Now, he has placed all of this information under one website location, "Podcasters for Christ." This makes it easier for other Christians to find the services they need in one spot rather than having to visit several different websites.
