‘The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few.
Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest
to send out laborers into His harvest.’”

INTERNATIONAL MISSIONS PRAYERLINE
Wednesday, November 25, 2009
“The one who offers thanksgiving as his sacrifice glorifies me; to one who orders his way rightly I will show the salvation of God!” (Psalm 50:23, ESV).
Dear Intercessors, this is Eleanor Witcher of the Office of Global Prayer Strategy, lifting prayers of thanksgiving to the Father for your faithful service in prayer.
As Christian workers reflect this Thanksgiving on the blessings of the past year, they will most certainly give thanks for all who have supported their continued service. Thank God for the sacrificial giving of many in churches that has allowed God’s Word to go forth continuously into the far reaches of the world, even during the global recession. Pray that both those who give and those who go to make His name known will truly delight in the honor and privilege.
Pray that genuine seekers will participate in the many Thanksgiving outreach activities that will occur this weekend, asking that through sharing about this American holiday, the gospel will also be presented and many will believe.
Many refugees live throughout the United States and will be invited to celebrate Thanksgiving with local Christians. As people from two cultures come together to share food from each culture, pray that these displaced peoples will clearly understand the spiritual significance of our holiday as a time to give thanks to God for His blessings on our nation and families.
In contrast on November 26, Muslim pilgrims in Saudi Arabia will stand in earnest supplication and devotion, praying for Allah’s forgiveness, honoring their Day of Arafaat. On November 27, others will celebrate Eid al-Adha, the “Festival of Sacrifice.” Their hearts strive through works to find acceptance with God.
* Please pray for Thanksgiving hosts, whether in the U.S. or overseas, as they share the love of Jesus this weekend–and consider opening your home to someone who has never experienced God’s love.
* Intercede for those who continue in allegiance to their faith of works, asking the Lord to break through the spiritual walls they have raised.
* Pray for God to reveal His salvation to those who seek righteousness and attend one of these intimate celebrations of thankfulness.
