There will be no God-appointed, anointed and sent messengers. Jesus plainly teaches us the way to get the needed laborers into God’s great harvest field is the way of prayer. The reason we have so many ministers in the general Christendom who are tearing God’s people into sectarian and denominational slices is because they are not the prayer-born messengers of God like Samuel the prophet.
By Andrew D. Urshan
We beg of the reader in the name of the Lord to read the following biblical facts in regard to a praying and not praying church.
If the people of God continue a prayerless life the seven following great losses will be their lot. We now wish to answer an important question namely, what would we lose if we do not “pray always.” “Pray without ceasing,” “pray everyshere” and “pray in the Name of the Lord Jesus.”
First—The kingdom of God will not come and we will have to live under man, and Satanic unrighteous ruling power. If the coming of the Kingdom of God was independent of our prayer Jesus would never teach His apostles and church and say, “When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name thy kingdom come and thy will be done on earth.” Our Savior evidently saw that the coming of the Kingdom of God depended on the prayers of His children that is why He taught His Disciples first of all the above prayer when they eagerly desired Him to teach them to pray. Luke 11:1-2.
Second—There will be no God-appointed, anointed and sent messengers. Jesus plainly teaches us the way to get the needed laborers into God’s great harvest field is the way of prayer. The reason we have so many ministers in the general Christendom who are tearing God’s people into sectarian and denominational slices is because they are not the prayer-born messengers of God like Samuel the prophet. If the Christian people put their energy into prayer for a divine ministry instead of wasting it in building up great large colleges and seminaries and so many theological propagandas; the world would have been brought under the influence of the gospel of Christ, which is the power of God long ago. So dear ones when our Master said to His followers, “Pray ye therefore the Lord of the Harvest, that He will send forth laborers into His Harvest,” He made no mistake, not did He speak hastily, but He uttered a Heavenly fundamental of the truth. Matthew 9:37-38.
Third—There will be no sinners saved. Wherever there has been a real conversion or a genuine revival of salvation of souls, it has all been wrought by real true prayer. No wonder apostle Paul said, “I exhort therefore, that first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; for this is good and acceptable in the sight of God, our Savior; who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.” Please note the contrast between two sayings of the apostle namely “all men”. Pray for all men, why, because God will have all men to be saved, in other words; God is ready and waiting for His church to pray for all men that, He may be able to save all men. You see our prayer less life not only causes the loss of many precious souls but it also stops the saving power of the Almighty, what a terrible loss. I Timothy 2:1-5.
Fourth—There will be no backsliders reclaimed. It is easy to judge the discouraged and backslidden souls, but we are not to judge them, but pray them back to God. He, who granted unto them repentance and remission of sins can alone bring the stray ones back to Himself, If the strong ones will pray earnestly in their behalf. This teaching is apostolic-brand and it was the apostle John, who affirmed it according to 1st John 5:16 and James 5:18-20.
