31 Days of Prayer for Operation Christmas Child - Day 19

Today will you pray that Operation Christmas Child will continue to be a strong support to the missions and outreach programs of U.S. churches.  The work of missionaries is so important.   God may not call each of us to go to foreign soil to become a missionary but each one of us has a job that God calls us to do.  We must be faithful to obey.  Taking part in OCC is one way we can help spread The Good News of Jesus Christ to lost people around the world.  In our 30 Days of Prayer and Fasting for International Missions on Day 28 part of our email said: 
Luke 10:2 provides an example of Jesus calling for more laborers: “Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest.” (See also Matthew 9:37, 38)
Any of us who have hoed weeds in fields of cotton, peanuts, or corn know just how hard that work is. The more workers in the field, the more work accomplished in a shorter amount of time.
2.6 billion people do not have religious freedom.
Of the 6,468 languages spoken in the world today 4,024 do not have a complete Bible.
22 countries absolutely forbid preaching the gospel.
4 billion people without a gospel witness.
6,600 unreached people groups dot the fields.
These facts paint a picture of a huge field in desperate need of laborers!

Pray God will raise up an army of laborers who will go into the fields of the world to plant, water, and harvest for His glory.
