Matthew 28:19-20 – City Prayers

— Matthew 28:19-20—

19 “Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,

20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely, I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.


Our Great Commission Duty

Eight billion people exist today but not all have come to know Christ as Savior. The church’s work is far from over. When Jesus walked on Earth, he commanded his disciples “to go and make disciples of all nations…” and that command still holds true.

If we have heard and accepted the Gospel, as Christ’s representatives it is our duty to teach and train those who have not heard the good news. People are hurting, living in darkness, and searching for something to fill their emptiness. You may think the people who have not heard the Gospel live somewhere remote. The truth is they are closer than you think. It can be your neighbor, coworker, the postal worker, your sibling, cousin, the list goes on. Let us not grow fearful or comfortable in our own walk with Christ that we forget our mission. “…there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.”- Luke 15:7.


Father, we come before you through your son Jesus, and ask that you remind us that
you are with us always, to the very end of the age. Let us not overlook those who still
live separate from you. Let us be obedient to your command of sharing the good news.
God, if we have grown weary or have lost sight remind us of our mission. Your son’s
sacrifice was for all, and you take no pleasure in the death of the wicked. We ask that
the Holy Spirit guide us when we are speaking to the lost. God, we can only plant the
seed, but you can change the heart. We pray in your Son’s name, Amen.
