Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness. When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.” Matthew 9:35-38
Jesus was going around all the cities and villages; He taught, He preached, and He healed. But there were even more people: "multitudes." At this Jesus was moved by compassion and told his disciples to PRAY. As Jesus' compassion grows in our hearts it will cause us to see the multitudes and then PRAY.
Lord, we pray for more workers to go out to the multitudes in the Arabian Peninsula. Lord, we pray for more Arab Christians to take the Gospel across the AP. Lord, we pray for other foreign workers to take the Good News to them. Lord, we pray for the church meeting in the AP to take the love of Jesus to the ends of the peninsula, and to the ends of the earth.
