The Holy Spirit moves in wonderful and mysterious ways when we pray for people. He convicts, woos, and draws people to Jesus. Every follower of Jesus has the opportunity to pray for others to receive Him and enter His family. Jesus asked the disciples to pray for workers to reach the harassed, helpless, and lost. Every one of us can do the same as we pray for others to hear the Good News and to come and follow Jesus.
“Love your neighbor as yourself,” Jesus commanded. He personified this as He was moved with compassion and met the needs of people. Jesus said His true followers would be known by their lives of love. As we pray for those God has placed in and around our lives – friends, family, neighbors, work associates, school mates, and those we see often in the marketplace, He will show us Spirit-led ways to love and care for them.
There are many ways we can be sharing the Gospel with others for whom we have been praying and caring. It could be as simple as inviting them to a church service, a Bible study, a movie, a concert or another special event where the Gospel message is being shared. Or we may guide them to an evangelistic website, a book, a DVD or share our personal testimony or engage them in a spiritual conversation.
