Luke 10:1-4 – “Harvest Prayers and Workers” Sun. Oct. 22nd 2017 – Pastor Stephan Sermon Outline I. Disciples Earnestly Beseech the Lord of the Harvest in Prayer (Luke 10:1-2). A. Prayer allows God to birth His perspective into our hearts. B. Prayer allows God to establish His priorities in our lives. C. Prayer allows God to download His plan for reaching the lost. D. Prayer equips us with God’s power to effectively reach others. E. Fervent times of prayer allow the Lord to burn His passion for the lost upon our hearts. II. Praying Aligns our Hearts, Hastens our Go-ing, and brings Joy to Ourselves and to Jesus (Luke 10:3-4, 17-24). Questions for Study and Reflection 1. What things can you think of in daily life that need to be aligned in order for them to function correctly? 2. Read Luke 10:1-9. Restate verses 1 through four into your own words, identifying what the “harvest” is, who the “workers/labourers” are, and any connection between “asking/praying” and “going”. 3. Read point I and the subpoints. Do you agree with each of these? Why or why not? Can you give an example of each from personal experience? 4. Reflect on point II. Is this a reality in your life? What opportunities do you have daily or weekly to share with others what the Lord has done in your life? Is there a way you could share more frequently?
