Summary

What should be our first response when we are brought face to face with the needs of the mission field? Jesus said we should pray.

We should pray because:

  1. The needs are primarily spiritual, not physical.
  2. The needs are overwhelming and we need wisdom.
  3. The needs are greater than we can meet.
  4. The Lord of the harvest cares more for His harvest than anyone else.

As we are praying, the Lord will be sending (cf. Matt 10:1).
