Read: Colossians 4:2–4
Key Verse: ...praying at the same time for us as well, that God will open up to us a door for the word, so that we may speak forth the mystery of Christ, for which I have also been imprisoned; that I may make it clear in the way I ought to speak. Colossians 4:3-4
Prayer is the entry point where God invites us into his rescue work. Prayer keeps our passion high and our mind focused on those we long to see fall in love with Jesus. Every time we pray, we are advocating for those who are without Jesus. Just imagine all the people who prayed for you. Aren’t you thankful for them? Would you be where you are today if they hadn’t prayed?Prayer is a powerful and important part of outreach. It knits our heart to the heart of God. Charles Spurgeon once said, “Prayer touches the tiny nerve that moves the mighty hand of God.” How amazing is it that our prayers really do make an impact.
What could happen if you made this prayer a regular part of your life?
- Lord, open a door: God please open a natural opportunity for me to talk to someone about my relationship with you. I want to listen to their story, share my story, and share your story.
- Lord, open their heart: God, I am excited to talk about you and tell what you have done in my life. Please get them ready to hear the message through me.
- Lord, open my mouth: God I know you are opening doors; I know you are preparing hearts. Please give me the words and the courage to speak to someone today.
Make that your prayer today and just watch God do more than we could ever ask or imagine.Prayer: Lord, thank You for the chance to talk to You through prayer. Please give me Your passion for those who are far from You. Please open doors and hearts and give me the courage to open my mouth with your story of hope.
