Questions for Reflection and Application:
Let’s take a quick inventory of where our prayer life is today. Are you praying regularly for God to help you live the gospel well? Are you asking God each week to help you grow in your witness? Are you praying daily and specifically for any unbelievers or asking God to introduce you to an unbeliever?
Are you still battling fear and/or insecurity in sharing the gospel? If so, are you willing to ask God each week to increase your desire to share Jesus with others?
Are you proactively partnering with God in prayer or is there someway you can be more diligent in this area?
