Do I know enough people that I can bring to Jesus?
Great crowds came to Jesus, bringing with them the lame, the blind, the crippled, those who could not speak, and many others. They put them at Jesus’ feet, and he healed them. – Matthew 15:30
As I prayed through this text this morning, my heart stirred over this phrase:
Bringing with them . . . .
This could be their friends, family members, other loved ones who all had a need to experience the healing ministry of Jesus.
Praying for people I know
I began to pray through my list of friends who don’t know the Lord.
I began to pray through my circle of friends who need physical healing.
I began to pray through our supporting churches – that they too would be places where the healing ministry of Jesus is experienced.
I began to pray that our church would welcome the unsaved guests that I will invite.
As I pray for them, I keep thinking of ways to let them know about my faith in Christ. I don’t hide my faith.
Rather, I want them to know about my walk with Christ.
What if you don’t know any non-Christians?
If you don’t think you know any non-Christians, you need to start making some new friends.
But you may already have some in your sphere of influence.
Spend time today
Spend time today praying for your personal friends who don’t know Jesus.
Bring them before the Lord in prayer and ask the Lord to give you conversational opportunities to talk about their spiritual thirst.
