Prayer Prompts

Prayer Prompts

We’ve already mentioned the extreme importance of prayer for those who do not know God yet as their personal Lord and Savior, but here we want to issue a challenge. Compile a list of 30 people you know of that do not know Jesus. Start with those closest to you: unsaved friends and family members. Commit to work through the list, praying for one person each day. I know from personal experience that it will be hard to stay on top of it and not slack off, but every time you find yourself distracted or ‘running out of time’ to pray for those on your list, remind yourself of the importance of prayer and their salvation, and look up a scripture giving us this very command.* An idea is to ask another person to do it with you and help keep you accountable. A parent or sibling are probably the best options for this since you see them everyday. So I ask again: please join me in this challenge. Pray! And email us the results! If you want, email us and we would love to help keep you accountable… and you can do the same for us!
*Here are some suggested Scriptures to get you started: John 6 and John 17…

Dissect it! – Witnessing

Dissect it!
“No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws them, and I will raise them up at the last day.”John 6:44 (NIV)
So. Dissect this verse. Okay, so the first part is this: ‘No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws them’. This calls for two steps of action on our part! We can preach at people as cleverly, convincingly, and passionately as we want, but without God it will all come to nothing. We cannot save them (who was is on the cross?), we cannot change their hearts, and neither is it our job. This is freeing! We are still called to do our part, but God is responsible. Woe be to us, however, if we try to do it without God. Okay, I’m getting distracted. The two steps of action. Right. Well, the first one is to pray. To pray for the people you want to witness to. To pray for the people’s hearts. That they may be ready to receive God’s truth. Without prayer and without God, trying to share the Good News with someone might cause more harm than good. So pray. Pray that God may draw them. May prepare and call their hearts.This also means that we need to have our own close relationship with God. If you need to, maybe reevaluate your relationship with Him. Many times I will pray and ask God, “Give him/her a hunger, and desire for You unlike anything they have experienced before. That they may not be satisfied until they find You.” (Matthew 7:8) Now for the second step: Share! And trust God to ‘raise them up on the last day’. For He will be faithful. He loves them more that you can ever imagine or comprehend and He wants to spend eternity with them in Heaven. (Philippians 1:6)
‘For we did not follow cleverly devised stories when we told you about the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ in power, but we were eyewitnesses of his majesty.’

2 Peter 1:16 (NIV)
‘So neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but only God, who makes things grow.’

1 Corinthians 3:7 (NIV)
