"The harvest truly is plentiful, but the labourers are few. Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborours into His harvest." ~ Matthew 9:37-38, NKJV

While on earth I could be in only one place at a time. My true followers were few, and those who needed to be ministered to were too many to number. As I looked at the multitudes, I was filled with compassion. They were like sheep wandering aimlessly without a shepherd. Today My true followers are few, much as they were during My early ministry. Those who need to hear My voice and follow Me are greater than ever. Many more labourers are needed to proclaim the Gospel with their voices and their lives. But the labourers We need can't be persuaded by the words or schemes of men. Labourers are called by the Father, through the power of His Spirit, to proclaim the Gospel to every creature. I know that you request much of Me. Here is My request of you. Every day pray that the Lord will send labourers into His harvest. As you pray, listen for His voice. Will He call you? Pray and listen.

"Even now the reaper draws his wages, even now he harvests the crop for eternal life, so that the sower and the reaper may be glad together." ~ John 4:36
