Biblical Evangelistic Prayer

Written by Jon Kopp. Posted in Mission Blog


As we pray evangelistically for our communities and our world, perhaps these few thoughts will guide us to pray Biblically for the advancement of God's mission through the church to the ends of the earth!

1. There is work to be done

Matthew 9:37-38
The harvest truly [is] plenteous, but the labourers [are] few; Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.

2. Jesus has commanded you to do it

Matthew 28:18-20
And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, [even] unto the end of the world. Amen.

3. Success is guaranteed

John 10:16
And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, [and] one shepherd.

4. Jesus is the only salvation

John 14:6
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

5. You were given the Holy Spirit for this purpose

Acts 1:8
But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

6. People won’t be saved without hearing

Romans 10:11-15
How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!

7. Evangelism is necessary for your own growth in Christ

Philemon 6
[I pray] that the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus.
