Prayer Guide for the month of APRIL





The mission of God, as evidenced throughout the Scriptures, is that all of God’s human creation will see redemption through the willing sacrifice of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, by placing their trust in him for salvation and deliverance from their sins.

John 3:16, 17 reminds us of God’s love when we read, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved” (NKJV).

Last month, Rev. Michael Obi identified a key statement that I believe needs to be re-emphasized. He stated that, “The whole world is in dire need of the Savior, now more than ever before.” As Jesus ministered on earth, we see two responses that show the urgency of praying for the lost. In Matthew 9:35–38, we read that “Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness. When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Then he said to his disciples, ‘The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field’” (NIV).

As we read these Scriptures, we should be challenged to identify the need to pray for the lost as well as pray for workers that will see the need to enter the harvest field to pick up the lost, receive the lost, minister to the lost, and restore the lost.

We invite you to join us in praying that the lost be found, restored, and redeemed by the powerful words of Christ which echoes that He loves them just the way they are, but He refuses to leave them where they are at.
