Pray for opportunities to share the Good News
Devote yourselves to prayer, keeping alert in it with thanksgiving. At the same time pray for us as well that God will open to us a door for the word, that we may declare the mystery of Christ, for which I am in prison, so that I may reveal it clearly, as I should. Conduct yourselves wisely towards outsiders, making the most of the time. Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer everyone.
First, pray for open doors, asking that God will give us opportunities to share our faith.
Second, pray that we’ll recognize and capitalize on each opportunity.
Third, pray that the Spirit will give us clarity of mind and speech when we do tell someone about Jesus.
Fourth, pray for sensitivity in our language. As followers of Jesus we need to tell the gospel story in a way that connects with people on a personal level.
