Jesus is headed to a new place! In Luke 10, Jesus sent out His disciples to go ahead of Him, sharing the gospel in the places He was about to go to Himself. In the same way, Jesus is sending believers ahead of Him to new places, new areas of the city, new people who don’t know Him. Please pray intently for the “Matthew,” “Mark,” “Luke,” and “John” teams of believers who are sharing the gospel this Christmas season in new areas and with new people. Ask that the story of Jesus’ birth and His offer of righteousness and salvation will be communicated clearly to those who have never heard. Pray that as the gospel is shared, the teams will clearly identify those who want to know more and provide more information to them. Ask God to remove obstacles to the gospel in their hearts so they may believe and be baptized. Ask Him to call more than 100 new people to saving faith in Jesus Christ through the work of these teams in five areas of the city. Pray that in each of the areas where these teams are sharing the gospel, a new multiplying church will be established that will be the body of Christ, His presence in that neighborhood or network of people.
