Direction Through Prayer
We've examined how devotion to prayer prepares us to use it as a witness and we've seen that we can't let unanswered prayer or silent times from God hinder us in our use of prayer for those in need of witnessing. Today, we conclude our 2nd part of 3DW by looking at how, after having devoted ourselves to prayer and determined to pray even in difficult times, we can now effectively use prayer in the lives of those for whom we reach. This directed prayer is not a new concept, but one that is outlined throughout the Book of Acts.
We mentioned last time how our devotion to prayer will lead us to both support witnesses as well as build our own witness. Today, we take that built witness and we put determination behind it. Today, we decide that our prayers are going to have impact and the people we pray for and with are going to be blessed, saved and redeemed by the blood of the Lamb.
Prayer is something that we at tWTL Ministries take seriously. At some point, each of our series takes on this important subject. We believe that by examining prayer, we can come to understand its power more completely. Like any other tool or idea, the more you study and practice it, the more effective you become using it. This week, we will study prayer as a witnessing tool. How can prayer help us to reach a lost and dying world? Find out the first part of this answer below.
