I am unapologetically stealing an idea from the Traveling Team. If you don’t know who they are check them out here. We knew those guys before they became the best mobilization group on the planet, so Todd and Claude consider this me asking for permission.
So, I am trying to sharpen my world vision perspective and I picked up their book at a missions conference. The book is called The Ten Modules (definitely a great practical read for your personal discipleship ministry). In one of the chapters they have this great idea of how to remember to pray for new workers. Set your alarm on your phone to 10:02 and when it goes off, stop and pray that God would send out laborers into His harvest. The verse comes from Luke 10:2
He told them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.Luke 10:2
So I have. And I love it. It is an easy, quick reminder that world changers don’t just show up on the scene. God raises them up. And we need to be praying for them.
If you are are starting your discipleship ministry. Or restarting your discipleship ministry. Or looking for new guys to disciples. Try a little 10:02.
Several years ago, I was finishing up a meeting with a guy that I was discipling and we were chatting about how we met. He commented, “I don’t even know how we met and starting meeting.” My response was, “I do, I am always praying for God to send me men to disciple and He put us together.”
What would happen if we really began to pray about God using us to send workers into His Harvest? Let’s find out. See you at 10:02.
