“I pray that you may be active in sharing your faith, so that you will have a full understanding of every good thing we have in Christ.” –Philemon 1:6
Paul’s admonition to Philemon is not only good for church growth but for the renewal of a nation. All Christians must be active in sharing their faith. If tens of millions of us in the United States take these words to heart, we will see a turn around in the spiritual condition of our nation. Quit complaining! Begin to pray and share your faith and see what God does.
Ask the Lord to show you the next steps you need to take in sharing your faith.
Pray for a fresh wave of evangelism to sweep over America.
Father, forgive me for my timidity when it comes to sharing my faith. Give me the boldness I need, along with wisdom to actively share my faith as a way of life. Lord, I pray that there will indeed be a fresh wave of evangelism that will flow from Your people out over this nation. Bring millions into Your kingdom! Change the hearts of many in this nation. You are our hope, Lord! Forgive us for looking to the government to change things, when all along You were ready and willing to change hearts. Change us, Lord, from the inside out.
