Our soul winning verse from the Word of God today is Daniel 12:3 which reads: “And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.”
Our soul winning quote today is from Gene Edwards. He said: “We must stop inviting the lost to church. We must start inviting them to Christ!”
Our soul winning devotional is part 37 of our series titled “What Evangelism Is” from Dave Earley and David Wheeler.
Evangelism Is…Praying Prodigals Home
Here is a suggested outline for praying for those who need Christ.
1. Lord, pour out Your Spirit upon (name of person) and:
2. Convict him/her of his/her sin, lack of righteousness, and deserved judgement
3. Open their hearts
4. Reveal to him/her who You are and what Christ has done for him/her
5. Open the eyes of his/her understanding and remove his/her spiritual blindness. Let there be light!
6. Draw him/her to Yourself in a powerful fashion
7. Bind Satan from him/her. Keep Satan from stealing Your Word from his/her heart.
8. May Your grace and mercy surround him/her.
9. Grant him/her the gift of repentance.
10. Help me to be willing and anxious to be the means by which You save and deliver him/her. Lord, show me how to lead him/her to Christ.
11. Send people across his/her path to bring him/her a witness of Christ.
Never forget that evangelism is praying prodigals home to God, continuing to pray even when things get worse, and praying in faith that God is working even as we are praying.
In our next broadcast, we will continue to look at why evangelism is…being yourself.
