Dear Reader,

Books / Pr - Prayer (2002) / Chapter 4—Prayer And Soul Winning

Pray for Greater Efficiency in Soulwinning—Oh, let it be seen, my brethren, that Jesus is abiding in the heart, sustaining, strengthening, comforting. It is your privilege to be endowed, from day to day, with a rich measure of His Holy Spirit, and to have broadened views of the importance and scope of the message we are proclaiming to the world. The Lord is willing to reveal to you wondrous things out of His law. Wait before Him with humility of heart. Pray most earnestly for an understanding of the times in which we live, for a fuller conception of His purpose, and for increased efficiency in soul saving.—(Testimonies to Ministers and Gospel Workers, 513, 514.) {Pr 42.5}

There are many souls yearning unutterably for light, for assurance and strength beyond what they have been able to grasp. They need to be sought out and labored for patiently, perseveringly. Beseech the Lord in fervent prayer for help. Present Jesus because you know Him as your personal Saviour. Let His melting love, His rich grace, flow forth from human lips. You need not present doctrinal points unless questioned. But take the Word, and with tender, yearning love for souls, show them the precious righteousness of Christ, to whom you and they must come to be saved.—(Evangelism, 442.) {Pr 43.1}

The Bible says God will give the Holy Spirit to those who ask. If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall [your] heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him? Luke 11:13. When Christ Jesus went to heaven, He sent us the Comforter from the Father that we may abide in Him and He in us. We are to bear witness of Christ by the Sprit that lives and dwells within us. When people see us, they will see Jesus. We in and of ourselves cannot save anyone, but we can lead them to the One who can. Let all those souls who are searching for truth know that He is our personal savior, of whom there is no other. Pray for God to anoint your head with oil that your cup runneth over to impart unto others in need.

Our Father, which art in heaven,

We come into Your presence in thanksgiving and praise. We thank You so much for never leaving us nor forsaking us, as You promised. For sending us the Comforter to be with us when You went to heaven. For the Comforter, the Holy Spirit, to live and dwell within us, abide in us that we may abide in You. For the light that shines in us for us to reflect unto others, so when they see us they see You. Help us to reach those souls yearning for Your light of truth. We thank You for the honor and privilege of being Your earthen vessels. For anointing us and filling us with the Oil that runs over to be imparted unto others who are searching and in need of the truth and their personal savior. We pray that You grant us greater efficiency in witnessing of You as the Way, the Truth, and the Life, and as the only mediator between the Father in heaven and us, of whom there is no other. Help us to understand the times in which we live in, and to be ready for Your great day to come. We pray for the revealing of wondrous things out of Your law. Help us to become effective soul winners that lead the lost to the foot of Your throne, that none should perish but have everlasting life. Grant us strength and courage when we labor to seek out these souls. Watch over us and protect as we enter into hostile or dangerous environments. There are parts of the world where it is against the law to be a Christian, even unto immediate death. We pray for those in these regions and the missionaries that are working to bring them the everlasting gospel. We pray for goodness and mercy to follow wherever we go. We praise and thank You, in the name of Christ Jesus, we pray. Amen.
