21 Days of Prayer

Converge 21 Days of Prayer

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.” Matthew 9:37-38

Jesus has commissioned us to reach the world with the gospel of Jesus (Mt. 28:18-20). God has given us his Holy Spirit to empower us as a witness (Acts 1:8). The Spirit continually works in our lives to convict us of sin (Jn. 16:8), guide us into truth (Jn. 16:13) and comfort us in trials (Jn. 14:16), accomplishing its work in us, so that God can do his work through us. Scripture reminds us that our power to be used by God to effect change in this world begins with prayer (Jas. 5:16).

Ours is a spiritual endeavor. We are completely dependent on God to change hearts (Ez. 36:26), open doors (Col. 4:2) and cause growth (1 Co. 3:6-7). Jesus reminds us that some things can only be accomplished through prayer (Mt. 17:21) and that communion with him is a catalyst for fruitful ministry. Apart from him we can do nothing (Jn. 15:5).

I sense our need as a movement to move back to a foundation of corporate prayerfulness.

Converge exists to glorify God by starting and strengthening churches together worldwide – and our practices need to be undergirded with our prayerfulness. We will accomplish nothing in our own wisdom or power – we are completely dependent on God. The key to our fruitfulness according to Jesus is knowing him, abiding in him, connecting with him, relying on him, seeking his will and doing things in his power and for his glory. True fruitfulness would not happen without true faithfulness in prayer.

Will you join me this January in 21 Days of Prayer? Will you pray for God’s leading in our lives, our churches, our movement and our mission fields in our 10-year vision? Will you take the time to fast, giving up physical sustenance to be filled spiritually by God in preparation for this next season? Will you pray expectantly, that God will display his power and faithfulness to us in this season?

I believe that as we come together, fully submitted to God in prayer, that he will display both his person and his power in unprecedented ways to advance the gospel so more people can meet, know and follow Jesus.

Get more details on how you and your church can get involved and let us know you're committing to the Converge 21 Days of Prayer so we can be praying for you.

Better together,

Scott Ridout
President
