Careless with the gospel

Put my mind behind the eyes of my neighbor, dear God, that I might see from his perspective and have insight in how to speak to him and reach him for eternal salvation.

At the same time, let me be, to a point, careless with the gospel, seeking to share it at every moment, with every person, regardless of their station in life.

Give me compassion for all. Increase my love for your creation and for your word.

Move us forward in our own walk with you and in service to our fellow man.

In all, O Lord, may you be glorified in us.

Content but Wanting More

Content am I, O Lord, but wanting more
Of you and yours, of voices to adore
Your glorious Self — to be alone content,
And yet desiring men seek you, repent,
Discover fellowship, see kingdom growth,
The family swell who take eternal oath. Continue reading

Love not only the gospel

O Lord, let us love not only the gospel,
but also those for whom it was intended.

Let us rejoice not only in the truth,
but also in seeing that truth in action,
freeing those enslaved by sin.

Let us be not only people who stand for what is right,
but who also do what you approve. Continue reading

I confess the Lord Jesus Christ

Most holy and righteous God, the story of Jesus motivates us to abandon our sins and accept the offer of forgiveness. No story is so touching, so moving, so disturbing, as his. No message reaches us on so many levels as the Good News. Here is the change and hope we’ve been searching for! Continue reading

Make my words an invitation to discovery

Help me to see, O Lord, in the face of each person I meet today, a soul crying out for you, a heart in desperate need of eternity, a seeker who, even though he knows not what he seeks, has yet to find what truly satisfies.

Lead me to engage others in conversation, as did Jesus, steered toward you, weighted with gratitude and joy, laced with the salt of the gospel. Continue reading

Always pointing to Scripture, referring to life in the Spirit

Father, people could see you in our Lord Jesus, if they were open to seeing. Make us like him, that people may see him in us. Continue reading

Into the harshest and most hostile environments

Lord, the world is offended by many things. In a politically correct world, many find multiple reasons to be offended. Slights are magnified. Any expression of differences of opinion becomes an unbearable insult. Criticisms are felt like a slap in the face, rather than an opportunity to learn. Continue reading

Help us break through

People near us, emotionally and physically, are hurting, suffering in so many ways. Friends, neighbors, coworkers, relatives. They have relationship problems, health issues, financial difficulties, mental confusion. They are imprisoned in spiritual darkness.

Lord, the world lies in the power of the Evil One. Put us in their path, cause them to share with us, bring us opportunity to serve them and show them the Way. Continue reading

Help the indecisive to follow the Lord

For those who have learned the truth but have yet to obey it, Lord, we pray. Possession of the truth is precious. So few have heard the gospel. To be blessed by someone sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Continue reading

Importance of prayer in sharing the gospel

Dewayne Bryant reminds us to pray for the lost:

All around us are people who do not know, or have not submitted to, Jesus Christ. As Christians, we understand the joyful blessings that are part of living a Christian life. We also understand the consequences of departing this life without knowing Christ. While there are many things we can do to reach the lost, we cannot forget about the importance of prayer as part of our efforts to share the gospel with others.

Flee and engage

Our Father in heaven, the noise of the world drowns out the voice of your Spirit. Let us flee first to be edified by your presence, in order to engage later our neighbors and share with them the gospel.

They just don’t get it, Lord

They just don’t get it, Lord. Time and time again they have heard. They ooh and aah. They find it so interesting. They want it to help them have a better life. But they’re trying to get without giving. Or give what they are willing to let go of. Continue reading
