This Sunday at Church: Pray for opportunities to share the Gospel on Thanksgiving
November 14, 2021 by SLIMJIM
For this Sunday here’s what you can do: Pray for opportunities to share the Gospel on Thanksgiving.
For those in the US Thanksgiving is coming soon; it’s on the last Thursday of the month of November.
It is a time where family and relatives get together; of course some do not know Christ. It is an opportunity to share the Gospel. But it isn’t easy to share the Gospel to family.
Yet this is an opportunity to point people to Jesus.
I think it is important in light of the challenges, yet also the opportunity, how we deal with this is to pray. Pray before Thanksgiving come about sharing the Gospel on Thanksgiving. Don’t just pray these things privately but seek others at church on Sunday to pray together about this, both for your family and the other person’s family!
Family to gather safely.
Family to gather on time. (I suspect with the state of the economy travel will be extra challenging this year, with canceled flight, fuel costs and other shortages).
Family to not fight over trivial matters.
Family to know you love them and family members to show love to one another.
Family to not have jealousy, anger, bitterness and unforgiveness rob the opportunity of gathering to thank God and thank family members.
For Gospel to be heard clearly.
For Gospel to be heard in appropriate duration.
For deeper conversations about the Gospel during the Thanksgiving season.
For further conversation about the Gospel that will be born from the Gospel being shared on Thanksgiving.
For letters, text, emails, messages and social media interaction to family members leading up to Thanksgiving also pave the way ahead for the Gospel to be shared on Thanksgiving and also for the Gospel to be even shared before!
To be wise of how the Gospel is shared.
For the hearts of hearers be soften.
For God to redeem any challenges, trials and difficulties this past year so as to move the person to trust in Christ and the Gospel.
For faithfulness to the Gospel (the pressure to be silent or compromise is strong and we are weak).
For ourselves to be refreshed with the Gospel as well, along with members of the family who are Christians.
For the unity of believing family members to be in one unison in sharing the Gospel.
What else can you add of details to pray for?
