Prayer Principle 2A:3B Reproduction Mr. C. Pat Lanyon
Review:An Overview of the section : ĎThy Kingdom Comeí (Anticipation)
From the Prayer Notebook: "I pray that ..."MT 18.2,3; EZ 33.11; 2 PE 3.9; 1 TH 5.9
1B. SALVATION -- Your rule and reign might come into the lives of each one who does not know You.
2B. EVANGELIZATION -- You would send more laborers to reach them.
MT 28.19; 2 TI 2.2
Today we now consider the Third subsection of praying for Godís Kingdom to come.
3B. REPRODUCTION by Discipleship -- You would guide me to one or more to disciple for Your kingdom.
MT 28.19-20; 2 TI 2.2
Significant Scripture passages:
1. Matthew 28: 19-20 "Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
20 "teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age." Amen.
2. 2 Tim. 2:2 And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.
It is Godís will that after people are born into His kingdom that they should learn what it means to become children of the King. This means
This means, as in our context of a notebook for praying, that we should record here where and when we obeyed Godís command to be baptized by immersion. Next, we can record those we may have seen become believers so that we can then pray for them and begin to teach them how to grow in their new-born Christian life. You will find the Lord will give you fruit from your life that will begin to reproduce after yourself. Not only does this bring blessing into your life, but it also brings blessing into the lives of others since they receive the joy of a new life in Christ.
This means we need to become well-versed in the Christian way of life: 1Pe 3:15 But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:This will involve first your own heartís sanctification as Peter here implies. God enables all of this to take place with His supernatural power. You are the one who chooses how quickly this takes place. When you are quickly obedient, He is quick to bless your life with a harvest of souls you can disciple.
