Further reviewing this part of the Lord’s Prayer, we learn that when we make this request, we are asking God to make His Gospel effective in the conversion of His elect. We look at two aspects of this prayer: that God would send out workers into His harvest field (including us if He so chooses) and that God would make the Gospel powerful to the conversion of the lost.

Lastly, we examine the fact that some people (who may or may not ultimately be saved) may pass through a time of ‘awakening’ in which they become somewhat aware of spiritual things. We learn how to distinguish between awakening and true conversion and how we may counsel those who are awakened so that they may seek Christ and find salvation in Him.
