“You have to guard the fruit, before you can harvest.”
Power is released when we bring God’s word to bear on the need. Use these scriptures as a starting point for your prayer and let the Holy Spirit guide you into intercession.
Protect the fruit- by praying 1 minutes a day for 7 days after any Christian Outreach.
1- No crash-No backlash-(1min.) Ministers often experience spiritual attack after fruitful ministry. Cover these points- Hedge of protection, cancel curses, dispatch God’s Angels, Guidance of the Holy Spirit, pluck your feet out of the net. “The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge. He is my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.” -Psalms 18:2
2- Protect the seed- No broken reed- (1min.)
The seed of conviction has been planted in many hearts, but it’s tender. God said, A bruised reed will not be broken. Ask God to watch over and protect the seeds that were planted. “Because of the oppression of the weak and the groaning of the needy, I will now arise,” says the LORD. “I will protect them from those who malign them.” -Psalms 12:5
3- Truth revealed-Let it be sealed- (1min.)
The truth can seem more real in the midst of a ministry meeting. Ask the Holy Spirit to guard over the truth that was revealed, and continue to bring revelation of God’s love and grace. “But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.” -John 14:26
4- Birds attack-Beat them back- (1min.)
The lies and accusations of the devil follow closely behind fresh revelation. In the parable of the soils, the birds of the air come to snatch away the truth of the Gospel. Stand in your authority as an ambassador of Christ and cancel the schemes of the enemy. “…The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil’s work.” -1 John 3:8
5- The choice is made-A foundation laid- (1min.)
The choice to follow Jesus is just the first step. Ask God to provide the grace people need to follow through on their commitment and walk in obedience to Christ. “If you love me, you will obey what I command. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Counselor to be with you for ever–” -John 14:15-16
6- Born again- Now take them in- (1min.)
One of the first things a new Christian needs is fellowship with other believers. Ask God to stir other Christians to be a family to these new believers. “From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.” -Ephesians 4:16
7- They’ve turned about- Now send them out – (1min.)
Because Christianity is a relationship and not a belief system, even a young believer can share his experience with others. Ask God to give them the desire and the opportunity to share their faith, and spread the Gospel. “For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” -Ephesians 2:10
Be sure you “Prepare the Way” for 7 days before your outreach.
