DAY 21 - Pray For the Unsaved and for Prodigals to Return
Evangelist Kaye Stramler
Word of Faith
Hi. My name is Evangelist Kaye Stramler and this is the 21st day of prayer in the 30 days of prayer segment. Today we are going to talk about what Jesus said about for us to go into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature. You see, it is the will of God that all men be saved and come into the knowledge of the truth. But they can’t do that if nobody goes. Jesus said in Matthew chapter 9, verses 37 and 38 – He said to pray that the Lord sends laborers into the harvest. We can’t go to the harvest unless they are sent. But somebody has to pray to the Lord. If the Lord knows that we need laborers in the harvest, why do we have to pray and ask for them? Because He said to ask. We have to ask, folks, because God does nothing in the earth unless someone does what? Ask. So we are going to ask the Lord to send more laborers into the harvest because the laborers are few right now. We need many more people out there preaching the Gospel. In Luke 4:18, the Bible said that Jesus stood up in the temple and said this, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.” He was reading from the book of Isaiah talking about Himself. But today, you can say out of your mouth, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me. God has appointed me to preach the Gospel to every creature. He has anointed me to heal the brokenhearted and to set at liberty them that are bruised and to preach the acceptable year of the Lord.” It is everybody’s responsibility to win souls. People need to be saved all over this world. We need to pray for the unsaved. We need to pray for the prodigal sons and daughters who have left home and need to come back. But they won’t come back unless somebody goes and tells them the truth about the Gospel. In Mark 16:15, Jesus told the disciples, “To preach the acceptable year of the Lord. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.” And then He goes on and on and on telling us about the signs that follow a believer. If you are a believer and you have hands, you qualify. It’s everybody’s responsibility to win souls. He says, “He that is winning souls is wise.” God told them – He said, “If you ask me, I’ll give you the heathen for your inheritance and the uttermost parts of the earth for your possession.” So God is big on winning souls. Folks, we need to get out there and win those souls so that God’s house will be filled. Amen. It is everybody’s responsibility. Let me say that once again. It’s not just for the prophet, it’s not just for the apostle, it is not just for the Bishop, it’s not just for the evangelist, it is for everybody. Everybody that is born again has the mandate to win souls. You might not be called to the office of an evangelist but you do do the work of an evangelist. And the work of an evangelist is to be saved. Saved from what? Sin. To be saved. What is the Gospel? Believe and be saved. What is the Gospel? Believe and be saved. Believe that Jesus heals, Jesus delivers, and Jesus sets free. Believe that Jesus died, rose on the third day, and then they accept Him as their personal Lord and Savior. We always quote first Timothy chapter 2, verse 1, “I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.” He is talking to you and so we have to pray. We have to ask God. Father, in the name of Jesus, would you please send spiritual laborers across everybody’s path that can minister to them in a way that they can receive it. He has to be asked. We have to pray for that laborer. You pray for the laborer to wield the sword in such a way that is going to cause all the people they come in contact with to come out of the spirit of darkness, and over into the Kingdom of light, in the name of Jesus. This is the will of God. This is the will of God for you. It’s the will of God for me, in the name of Jesus. Well, this is our 21st day and don’t forget, winning souls is your responsibility as much as it is mine. Amen. God bless you. And we will see you in the field.
