Witness Well

A prayer to open our eyes for opportunities to witness

When opportunities come knocking on our door it always seems to be the wrong place and the wrong time to share God’s Word. Timing is important, but maybe we analyze and discern the receptivity of one’s heart too much before sharing the message of the gospel. In the gospel of John, Jesus says, “Do you not …

A prayer of encouragement in sharing God’s Word against stubborn unbelief

A soldier going into battle recognizes the importance of having an effective weapon. In confronting the enemy, a poorly equipped solider will have little chance of victory. For Christians, what weapon are you using to confront the world? A Christian goes into battle every time an opportunity comes to share the message of the gospel. The …

A prayer to proclaim — even when we don’t feel like it

The psalms in the Bible expresses our soul. It sings both during the good times when our spirits soar and during difficult times when we look for God in the depths of our uncertainty. Our faith is an ongoing song that longs to be heard. We read in Psalm 96, “Sing to the LORD a new …

Coming to a saving faith in Christ Jesus usually involves a process. There is so much going on behind the scenes of one’s heart and soul that we don’t know or see. Someone could be praying for a friend or a loved over a long period of time. In what seems like a random encounter …

A prayer to be powerful witnesses of God’s Word

When witnesses are called upon in a courtroom, they take an oath to tell the whole truth and nothing but the truth. To lie would be a crime. God calls Christians to the stand to be his witnesses. All we need to do is tell the truth of God’s Word. It seems that Christians today are distracted. There …

A prayer to help me be wise in my conversations with others

It seems that people today are more interested in how a Christian walks rather than what they talk. This means that those who profess a faith in Christ are being carefully observed by the world. Sinful words and actions can built a major roadblock to unbelieving souls. Hypocrisy is a leading cause for people to …
