The Shape of Evangelistic Prayer

Writing for Tabletalk magazine, Rev. John Shaw writes:

The church in a hostile world needs the kind of prayer found in Acts 4. Believers need to raise our voices together in regular gospel-driven, kingdom-centered prayer. We need prayers that are filled with the content of the gospel—prayers that recount who God is, what God has said, what God has done, and what He has promised to do. We need prayers that are centered on the kingdom—prayers that ask God to give us perseverance to speak the Word of God with boldness and that ask Him to act powerfully through our witness.
