Prayer: Reach...

“Really? You want to know about Jesus?”

Ever been surprised by someone’s willingness to learn more about Jesus? Ever been caught off-guard when someone wants to know more about your faith? We need hearts that ache for those who are not yet Christians. And when we begin to see people the way God sees them, we can expect that people will respond to the work God is doing in and around them.

Why? Because people matter to God, and God wants to use us to reach out to those He has placed in our lives.

Today, walk around wide-eyed, looking at people and praying for them with a heart that believes God will reach them, and that He wants to use us in the process!

Prayer starters:

* Pray for school campuses to be impacted by the gospel
- Students

- Teachers

- Administration

* Your friends

* Your family members

* Your co-workers
* Your neighbors

* Your community

* Pray for people that you'd like to be used by God to “reach.”

“Quietly trust yourself to Christ your Lord, and if anybody asks why you believe as you do, be ready to tell him, and do it in a gentle and respectful way.”
(1 Peter 3:15, TLB)
