About 10/40 Window Sunday

Do you not say, 'Four months more and then the harvest'? I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest. (The Bible, John 4:35 NIV)

One of the many examples of what God is doing inside the Window comes from India. "The last decade has seen a great escalation of disciple making and church planting," reports Dr. Victor Choudhrie leader of a church planting movement in that nation. What does he mean by "a great escalation"? Between Pentecost 2009 and Pentecost 2010, Choudhrie's ministry saw one million baptisms. That's a one followed by six zeros!

As is true of any revival or great awakening, this didn't just happen. It was a sovereign work of the Holy Spirit ignited by the prayers of God's people. "This was made possible because of an avalanche of prayer," Dr. Choudhrie explains. "Both praying through the Spirit and praying through the mind. Holy Spirit-guided, informed strategy resulted in a huge harvest that we could not think or imagine."

The Word says there is more joy in heaven over one sinner repenting than over ninety-nine righteous people (The Bible, Luke l5:7). The harvest of souls is accelerating!

  • Pray for God to continue this explosive move of the Spirit, drawing billions more to His Dear Son. Pray for His Kingdom to grow, advance, and spill across ethnic lines, religions, and national borders, engulfing all of the 10/40 Window.
  • Pray for the harvest to blaze like fire through the l0/40 Window, burning through enemy strongholds and penetrating "closed" nations and unreached people groups.
  • Ask the Lord of the Harvest, therefore, to send out workers into His harvest field. (The Bible, Matthew 9:38 NIV)
  • Pray for Jesus Christ to be exalted far above every god, idol, false religion, and manmade philosophy. Pray for demonic lies, arguments and pretensions to be torn down and cast aside. Pray for every knee to bow, and every tongue in the 10/40 Window to confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. (The Bible, Romans 14:11)
