Pray that the saints would set aside a weekly time with their vital companions for the purpose of contacting and gaining people (Luke 10:1-2; Acts 13:2; 15:40; 16:29-31; Gal. 6:1; James 5:19-20).
Luke 10:1-2—Now after these things, the Lord appointed seventy others and sent them two by two before His face into every city and place where He Himself was about to come. And He said to them, The harvest is great, but the workers few; therefore, beseech the Lord of the harvest that He would thrust out workers into His harvest.
Acts 13:2—And as they were ministering to the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, Set apart for Me now Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.
Acts 15:40—But Paul chose Silas and went out, having been commended to the grace of the Lord by the brothers.
Acts 16:29-31—And the jailer asked for lights and rushed in; and trembling, he fell down before Paul and Silas. And leading them outside, he said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved? And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus, and you shall be saved, you and your household.
Gal. 6:1—Brothers, even if a man is overtaken in some offense, you who are spiritual restore such a one in a spirit of meekness, looking to yourself lest you also be tempted.
James 5:19-20—My brothers, if any one among you is led astray from the truth and someone turns him back, let him know that he who turns a sinner back from the error of his way will save that one’s soul from death and will cover a multitude of sins.
