Christians underestimate the power of prayer in evangelism.
People say to me, “Sure, Luis, prayer is important. But, let’s get out there and do something for the Lord!” But, what many people don’t understand is: prayer is the very foundation for sharing the Good News, whether it’s with ten people or ten thousand.
I think about the impact of prayer in my own life. When I was a baby, my parents later told me they dedicated me to the Lord, praying, “Lord, here is Luis. He is Yours. Use him for Your glory so many may come to know You through him.”
Since they had decided to keep this a secret between them and God, I didn’t know about their prayer for many years. Now, God has seen fit to use my life to declare the Good News to people all around the globe.
In fact, right now, God has me in New York City! And if God can use a little boy from Argentina to reach nations and great cities, He can do the same life-transformation in you and your friends.
So, before you share the Good News, remember James 5:16, “The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.” Step 1: Pray. Step 2: Share. Share the life-changing Good News message with your friends and neighbors.
“Prayer is the very foundation for sharing the Good News, whether it’s with ten people or ten thousand.”
