Five missional practices to intentionally introduce people to Jesus

Even though most of our community believes in God we discovered that nearly one-third (29%) of our friends, family, coworkers, and neighbors right here when asked claim no religious faith at all, in addiction to that only 13% of our surrounding community says that their faith is very important to them. We simply can’t afford to wait for others to do the work of outreach and evangelism

Until Easter and throughout the next year we are going to be focusing on natural ways to build relationships with unchurched and dechurched people, serve them, and lovingly point them to Christ. Join us on Sundays as we learn what it means to B.L.E.S.S the people God puts in our path.

Begin with Prayer

At church on Sunday we covered the first of five missional practices to intentionally introduce people to Jesus. We made a list of 3-5 people we long to see commit to faith in Christ. If you are struggling with how to pray for them here are some ideas to get you started. (from: www.covchruch.org/bless/begin-with-prayer)

  1. Pray that ___________ will become thirsty for God (John 7:37-39).
  2. Pray that the Father will draw ________ to Jesus (John 6:44-45)
  3. Pray that ___________ will become open to God’s truth (2 Corinthians 4:4-6).
  4. Pray that _____ will become receptive to God’s grace (Romans 3:23-24; Titus 3:4-7).
  5. Prayer for _____’s heartfelt conviction of sin and their need for God (John 16:8-11; 1 Thessalonians 1:4-5)
  6. Pray for ______ to take genuine steps of repentance (2 Corinthians 7:10).
  7. Pray that _____will clearly experience God’s love (1 John 4:7-10, 19-21).
  8. Pray that _______ will develop a heartfelt and willful belief and acceptance of Jesus as King and Lord (John 10: 27-30)
  9. Pray for ______to develop deep spiritual rootedness in Christ (John 15:5; Colossians 2:6-7).
  10. Pray for _______ to reproduce God’s mission to others who are far from God (Matthew 28:18-20).

Make sure you find one person to help keep you on track as you pray for, and seek to BLESS these individuals!
