Wanted: Prayer Warriors

As we seek to advance God's kingdom here in our assigned field of harvest we have encountered several needs that we are petitioning the Lord to address. One os for more laborers to join us here in the inner-city of Troy, NY. The neighborhood we started out in, North Central, is the most distressed neighborhood (economically and physically) in this city and one of the most distressed in all of New York's capital region.

Here is how you can help. Pray!

Prayer is the first detail to bring together. As Jesus told His disciples, "Pray the Lord of the harvest to send out more laborers," so we would ask our brothers and sisters, wherever you are, to petition the Great Commissioner on our behalf. There are plenty of "harassed and helpless...sheep having no shepherd," (Matt.9:35-38) but we need more laborers. I would be more inclined to ask for prayer warriors at this point in time than for anything else; that God would send the right people for our inner-city community, or raise them up from the native soil.
