Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he send forth laborers into his harvest. Matthew. 9.38.

Here is one of the greatest spiritual principles: Whatever the Lord has in His heart to do, He first calls the disciples to pray. Only after they have prayed to the Lord of the harvest to send forth laborers are they sent out by Jesus. The chain of prayer is (1) initiated by God, (2) prayed by men, and (3) the work accomplished in accordance with God’s will. God answers prayer so as to achieve His will. And this is why one once said that prayer is laying down tracks for the will of God to run on.

Jesus asked the disciples to pray that the Lord of the harvest would send forth laborers. After a while, those who were sent out were these very disciples. As we pray for a certain thing, God is preparing us to be willing to do the very same thing.
