Ignited: A Simple Guide for Bold Prayer

DAY 1 OF 6

Prayer is the Priority

In Matthew 9:37­–38, Jesus said,

The harvest is abundant, but the workers are few. Therefore, pray to the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into his harvest (CSB, emphasis added).”

The word for “send out” in Greek means to “propel”. Propel Women was founded on this verse. So as we seek to ignite our prayers, we are going to do exactly what Jesus commanded: we are going to pray to the Lord of the harvest to send out workers—to propel us—into his harvest. The harvest is plentiful. The opportunity for God’s Kingdom to advance is here and now. What’s the key to seeing it happen? Prayer!

Prayer simply means to talk to God. It can be a conversation that happens in your heart or out loud. It can happen alone or in a group. It can happen with our feet firmly planted on the ground, or thousands of feet up in the air. But here’s the awesome thing: As we pray, God listens, speaks, and responds.

The God of the Universe wants to hear from you. Not only has God initiated a conversation and invited us to speak to Him in prayer, but He also integrates our prayers into the works He is doing in the world!

Wherever you are, whatever your background, no matter your sphere of influence — in the marketplace, as a stay-at-home mom, a CEO, a doctor, a teacher, a student, a lawyer, or an artist — prayer is the primary place where God’s work and your work in this world come together. As we pray, God has promised to move mountains, shake foundations, and reach the great harvest of people who have not yet come to know him. God has made it such that our small prayers make an eternal, Kingdom-sized difference! God is changing the world by His power and through our prayers!


Lord, I pray that this is a year I see You moving in power to bring people to yourself. According to Your Word in Matthew 9:37-38, may there be more workers propelled into the harvest than ever before. Let the days ahead be marked by a great harvest all for Your glory and the advancement of Your Kingdom here on the earth. And I commit to You now that I will be a part of it. Amen.
