Each Monday, the pastors of First Baptist Church pray for three things. (1) Open a door. We ask God to open a door to share the Gospel with someone who is unchurched. We pray for God to bring someone across each of our paths in order to share the Gospel with them (cf. Col. 4:2-4). (2) Open their heart. We ask God to open the heart of those we encounter We pray their heart will be receptive to the Gospel of Jesus Christ (cf. 2 Thess. 3:1). (3) Open my mouth. We ask God to open our mouths with boldness as we share the Gospel with others (cf. Eph. 6:19-20). Would you begin to pray for these same things each Monday? Imagine what God would do in our church and community if we began to have Gospel conversations.
