Here are prayer points for evangelism you can use to pray.
The Christian number one mission on earth is the evangelization of the world, but to be successful at his task, he has to be strategic.
Yes, he is to be zealous for the Lord but also very strategic about how he goes about carrying out the order of the Master.
If you don’t know, there’s what is called ‘Holy Spirit Evangelism’; where the Holy Spirit is the one leading you on to harvest fields and mission for soul winning.
In that case, you will have to be led by Him – the Spirit and not just by zeal.
You can remember how that two times in the Acts of the Apostles, the Holy Spirit constraint and forbade the Apostle Paul and his team from preaching in certain regions. (See Acts 16:6-7, NIV)
You would have thought that since Paul was about God’s mission with zeal, he could just go anywhere and preach, no!
The Lord of the Harvest, the Holy Spirit had to guide and lead him in spite of zeal.
The rest is history, the results the apostle Paul had in missions and Evangelism is what the Church is still building on today.
Now to get it right and straight, you have got to pray.
That’s where prayer points for evangelism come in.
