Sunday, (Oct 21) – Pray to the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into His harvest field. Pray that we will be salt and light in our community.

Pray that God will give us ways to build caring relationships with pre-believers, and for wisdom, empowerment and confidence to tell others about Jesus at the appropriate time. Pray for pre-believers, that the Lord will set them free from spiritual captivity, open their spiritual eyes, give them ears to hear, give them faith to believe, and the will to respond to the Gospel.
