I pray we are all given opportunities to BUILD & BRING this week: build a relationship to bring to Christ. We open a new campus and start a new series for a new year this coming weekend. Great opportunity to INVITE someone to church with you. I want to share a prayer that you can use for someone you know that needs Jesus and/or a church home.
I know You are mighty to save because You saved me. Thank you for the gift, miracle, and joy of my salvation. However, I am also burdened for those who do not know You. My heart’s desire and prayer to You is that _____ might be saved (Romans 10:1).
I pray that _____ could grasp how wide and long and high and deep Your love is — and that they might be filled with the fullness of life and power that comes from You, Lord (Eph. 3:18-19).
Father, enable me to work at bringing _____ to Christ. I know Your will for me is to share You with others but I’m fearful and weak so I start in prayer asking You to give me an opportunity (Colossians 4:3) to share Your love with _____ and invite him/her to church. Give me boldness to share the greatest news in all of eternity (Acts 4:29). Use me to open their eyes so that You may be clearly seen (Acts 26:17-18). Make Your work through Christ so comprehensible and clear to _____ and give him/her eyes to see the glory of the Gospel in Christ in their heart. (2 Cor. 4:6).
I pray this for the glory of Your Name and the advance of Your eternal kingdom!
