NOV. 8 – DAY 8
GREAT HARVEST 2027 PURPOSE:
PART II – GREAT COMMISSION
13 And it’s true: “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord Yahweh will be rescued and experience new life.” [a] 14 But how can people call on him for help if they’ve not yet believed? And how can they believe in one they’ve not yet heard of? And how can they hear the message of life if there is no one there to proclaim it? 15 And how can the message be proclaimed if messengers have yet to be sent? That’s why the Scriptures say: “How welcome is the arrival [b] of those proclaiming the joyful news of peace and of good things to come!”
In Ezekiel 37, God tells Ezekiel to prophesy over the dry bones. What is it to prophesy? In this scripture, it is to speak life and encouragement to a person, a nation based on the life-giving promises of God. Romans 10 reiterates the importance of speaking God’s good news promises to people: they will call on the Lord and be saved.
Great Harvest 2027 is this generation’s response to the great commission of Jesus.

Praying the Psalms: Psalm 37
Adore the Lord who takes care of His people by being their stronghold in trouble. Praise the Lord for His righteous and pure judgments. Worship the Lord who empowers us to do good, directing our steps.
Confess moments of envy of the wicked. Confess anger that leads to misdeeds and ungodly words towards those we disagree with. Repent for broken commitments made to God.
Thank Yahweh that those who trust in Him will possess the land! Thank God for delighting in the details of our lives. Thank the Lord for not allowing the wicked to succeed.
Pray for the Great Harvest Steering Committee to flow in obedience with the Holy Spirit. Pray for aligned churches and organizations to join Harvest efforts to send 648 Fellows to the field in 2027. Ask the Father to increase the faith of those discerning to become Fellows, Mentor, Coaches, and Teachers.
