WHAT TO PRAY. – For God's Spirit on the Heathen--
Isaiah 49:12 (NIV)
Psalm 68:31 (NIV)
Isaiah 60:22 (NIV)
Pray for the heathen, who are yet without the word. Think of China, with her three hundred millions – a million a month dying without Christ. Think of Dark Africa, with its two hundred millions. Think of thirty millions a year going down into the thick darkness. If Christ gave His life for them, will you not do so? You can give yourself up to intercede for them. Just begin, if you have never yet begun, with this simple monthly school of intercession. The ten minutes you give will make you feel this is not enough. God's Spirit will draw you on. Persevere, however feeble you are. Ask God to give you some country or tribe to pray for. Can anything be nobler than to do as Christ did? Give your life for the heathen.
HOW TO PRAY. – With Confident Expectation of an Answer
Jeremiah 33:3 (NIV)
Ezekiel 36:37 (NIV)
Both texts refer to promises definitely made, but their fulfilment would depend upon prayer: God would be inquired of to do it. Pray for God's fulfilment of His promises to His Son and His Church, and expect the answer. Plead for the heathen: plead God's Promises.
James C. Blough
