Pray Evangelism Prayer 15

Draw Your Church Together

BibleGod did not promise that we would be "fishing without catching" (Luke 5.4-11) or that we would come to "an empty banquet table" (Luke 15.15-23). Pray that we would not be "sowing without reaping" (Matthew 13.3-9). We would not be "a fig tree that bears no figs" as (Luke 13.6-9) describes it, "lost sheep not brought into the fold" in (Matthew 18.11-14), or even "a lost coin that is sought but not found" as in (Luke 15.8-10). Jesus did not promise us "ripe harvests that are not reaped" as (Matthew 9.36-38) says, or "proclamation without response" from (Matthew 10.14.)

Fishing Prayer

Pray the Evangelism PrayerThis is the evangelist's own personal prayer, "God grant that I may live to fish, until my dying day. And when it comes to my last cast, I then most humbly pray. When in the Lord's safe landing net, I'm peacefully asleep. That I be judged, good enough to keep." Amen

Church Prayer

Church PeopleHere is another prayer for the church at large, "Draw your church together, O Lord, into one great company of disciples, together following our Lord Jesus Christ into every walk of life, together serving him in his mission to the world. Together may we witness to his love on every continent and island. We ask this in His name and for His sake." Amen

Go in Prayer

Sunset viewA Prayer from "A Sunday Scholar's Companion Volume 5 from 1859" based on Psalm 105.17. says, "Go when the morning shines, Go when the moon is bright, Go when the day declines, Go in the hush of night, Go with deep contrite feelings, Cast earthly thoughts away, And, in thy chamber kneeling, To God in secret pray." Amen
