Things to Pray for

The Scocaster, Vol. 40, No. 10, March 7, 1999, p. 3

We should ask God to make the gospel message clear (Col. 4:4). Pray for boldness in the one doing the evangelism (Acts 4:29; Eph. 6:19). Pray that the individual believes the Word of God (Rom. 10:17; 1 Thess. 2:13). Pray that Satan is bound from blinding them from the truth (2 Thess. 2:13). Pray for the safety of the messengers (2 Thess. 3:2). Pray for the success of the gospel and that they will believe in Christ as their Savior (John 1:12, 5:24, 6:27-29; 2 Thess. 3:1). Pray that the one who receives Christ as Savior may grow spiritually and bear fruit (Matt. 13:23; John 15:16; Col. 1:6, 2:6, 7).
