40 days of prayer (Day 3)
As we continue in 40 days of prayer and think of this week's focus of Acts 1:8, Let's think of the context we are called to be witnesses. Where is it God has placed us to point others to Jesus? The people we live with; our neighbours; the parents at the school gates we converse with when we drop off and pick up our kids; our colleagues; the bus driver; the shop assistants; the person at the next table in the tea room etc. Remember Jesus said these words in John 4:35 "Don't you have a saying, 'It's still four months until harvest'? I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest"
Father, Enable us your people to be your witnesses to the people you have sent us to. Give us boldness to love and serve others. May you open our eyes to see the needs of others and may we- by your spirit be used to share the good news of Jesus. Forgive us for when we just walk through the fields missing opportunities but help us to make the most of every moment. In the name of Jesus we pray Amen.
