Ask me, and I will make the nations your inheritance, the ends of the earth your possession. Psalm 2:8
For many of us the opportunity to travel to a third-world country and to serve on the mission field is just not possible. But the incredible thing about being a child of God is that we can meet with Him wherever we are! It doesn’t matter if we are in the car, at work, school, or even in the kitchen washing dishes, we always have direct access to the Father and therefore we can always be on the mission field.
Our prayers when prayed according to His will are always fruitful and effective to the Kingdom work. We can ask the Lord to make the nations Christ’s inheritance and do you know what? He will answer that prayer! In fact, all of our prayers are already being offered up to Christ as an act of worship in Heaven.
And when he had taken it, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb. Each one had a harp and they were holding golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of God’s people. Revelation 5:8
So let’s pray for the nations. Let’s ask Him for every people, tongue, and tribe to know Jesus Christ as Lord and to glorify Him with their lives! Don’t know where to start? Here are a few resources to help get you started . . .
