Most of the prayer requests in prayer meetings is for sick people. We need to pray for physical needs. But should that be 90% of our requests? Is that really the most appropriate balance? Shouldn’t there be at least some prayer for non-Christians?
I don’t know how this all fits together, but Jesus did say “you have not because you ask not.” Paul instructed us to pray for lost people:
“I exhort, that first of all supplications, prayers, intercessions and giving of thanks be made for all men… for this is good and acceptable in the sight of God, our Savior, Who will have all men to be saved and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.” I Tim 2:1
Before you launch new strategies and initiatiaves for evangelism in your church, why not first launch a prayer initiative?
