LIFESTYLE OF PRAYER EVANGELISM
Live a Lifestyle of Prayer Evangelism
Talking to God about your neighbours
before talking to your neighbours about God.
Start with Blessing
Pray for specific people in your sphere of influence to be blessed - that God would be working in their life, for peace in their home, etc.
Adopt them in prayer. Take spiritual ownership of the people you pray for, knowing that praying for peace and blessing, results in peace and blessing. It's like changing the "Spiritual Climate" around them through prayer.
Be present, don’t be absent. Find ways to intentionally connect with the people in your sphere of influence.
Jesus was a friend to sinners - so should we be. This provides an opportunity to show unconditional acceptance by welcoming our neighbors the way they are, instead of the way we want them to be. Find common ground.
Meet Felt Needs
Bless and be on call. When they share a felt need, offer prayer! And help!
Use your resources AND expect MIRACLES. Listen and obey. Obedience is success.
When we meet people's needs through God's provision, God creates an avenue to show them that Jesus is indeed a friend of sinners, who does not condemn them but loves them unconditionally.
Tell them it is God who has met their need and introduce them to Jesus. Share the Good News of the Gospel.

"Prayer Evangelism" by Ed Silvoso
How to Change the Spiritual Climate over Your Home, Neighborhood and City
Best-selling author Ed Silvoso shows that when you change a city's spiritual climate, everything - and everybody - is transformed. It was something the early church knew innately and here Ed shares a proven, biblical, and practical plan to help you change the spiritual climate of your city. Fulfilling the Great Commission is no longer a distant hope; it is a fast-approaching reality that we may see in our own lifetime.
