Prayer to Be Better Witnesses – 10 Prayer Requests

 

The Bible tells us that God is not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance and to the knowledge of the truth (2 Pet. 3:9, 1 Tim. 2:4).  For this reason, He wants us to pray for the lost—for all the lost.  It is how God has designed for people to be saved (Rom. 10:1).

But we should also pray for ourselves—because we are the instruments that God has chosen to pray for them and to bring them to Christ.  Of course, in our own ability we will fail, because we naturally lack the desire, the skill, and the courage to witness.  But with prayer, God will work the power of His own Spirit in us, so that many may be delivered out of the power of darkness and into His marvelous light.

Now the most vital thing we need as witnesses is to be empowered with boldness to proclaim the gospel. This, I think, should be the focal point or the climax of all our requests concerning our witness, for it is what we often can’t seem to find in ourselves.  When we pray, of course we should pray over all the difficulties and problems, and over all the areas that will help us to be bold, but we should especially pray that we would be empowered by the Holy Spirit.  For without His power and leading, all our witnessing will be in vain and ineffective.

I have formulated a list of ten requests. In this post I will just list the points. In the next few post I will talk about them.
