Dear Brethren,

Next Sunday 16 December 2012 is our Gospel Worship Service at 3pm. We have been encouraging every member to bring your unbelieving friends to the Gospel worship service. Have you done your part? Have you prayed for a burden for souls and made the invitation? If not, this is the last week that God has given us the opportunity to do so. Do not delay anymore. Today, send a SMS or an email invitation to the people that God has burdened your heart with. Bring the invitation handbill and give it to that friend or colleague this week.

“Cast thy bread upon the waters: for thou shalt find it many days” Ecclesiastes 11:1

Do your part with as many invitations as possible. Do everything possible with all means you have. Even if you are away next Sunday, do the invitation and tell your friends to come on their own. Pray as you invite. Pray for those you have invited. Pray for them to come and be saved. Let God work a wonderful work for His own glory. May the Lord be pleased to use us!

In this year 2012, have you brought anyone to Church to hear God’s Word? Have you shared the Gospel of Jesus Christ to anyone this year? Have you given out a Gospel tract to anyone? Have you come for any evangelism session? God knows the answers in each one of us. Another year will go by very soon. The year will be wasted with nothing done for our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. How many more years do we have? Can we meet our Saviour with not even a single soul that we have evangelised? May God have mercy upon us!

Lastly, will you not pray like these men of God below who asked God for such love and burden for souls? Make the same prayers from your heart. Make it your constant plead and cry to God.

George Whitefield, the famous English evangelist, prayed, “O Lord, give me souls, or take my soul!”

Henry Martyn, a missionary, prayed as he knelt on India’s coral strands, “Here let me burn out for God.”

David Brainerd, missionary to the North American Indians 1718-1747, prayed, “Lord, to Thee I dedicate myself. Oh, accept of me, and let me be Thine forever. Lord, I desire nothing else; I desire nothing more.”

Dwight L. Moody prayed, “Use me then, my Saviour, for whatever purpose and in whatever way Thou mayest require. Here is my poor heart, an empty vessel; fill it with Thy grace. “

John Mckenzie prayed thus when as a young missionary candidate he knelt on the banks of the Lossie : “O Lord, send me to the darkest spot on the earth!”

“Praying Hyde,” a missionary in India, prayed, “Father, give me these souls, or I die.”
