Community Baptist Church in Reidsville, NC that is turning the congregation to an outward focus. They are getting involved in the community through some innovative projects. One of those strategies was a prayer initiative for their city. The church members made appointments and interviewed key leaders in their community to ask for prayer requests. The response was really positive.
Most people welcome your offer to pray for them. Even a nonbeliever will welcome your prayers. Perhaps they are hedging their bets about heaven and God, but it is amazing that very few people will reject an offer for intercession. They may not want you to do it right there on the spot, but they want your prayers.
Community Baptist Church compiled the results of their interview which provided the content for public and private prayer meetings. Attached is a document that shows these responses. You could do the same for your city. Just the fact that church members are starting to think of others is a positive step in evangelism.
