To become a powerful, effective witness, you must spend time in prayer. Prayer keeps you in constant touch with God. You need not to worry regarding the time, place or position. Any time is proper, all places are approved, and your body will respond with the correct position.
It’s a wonderful assurance to know God stands ready to answer prayer even before you ask. Jesus promised, “And if you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.” (Mathew 21:22, HCSB). God said, “Even before they call, I will answer; while they are still speaking, I will hear.” (Isaiah 65:24, HCSB)
God acts when Christians pray. His invitation is, “Call to Me and I will answer you and tell you great and incomprehensible things you do not know.” (Jeremiah 33:3, HCSB)
It is our job to pray without ceasing. It’s unlikely that you can continually pray for one specific individual and not have a deep, abiding concern to see that individual saved. Right now pray for the specific lost person you named last week on your PRAYER CARE CARD©.

“Now this is the confidence we have before Him: Whenever we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears whatever we ask, we know that we have what we have asked Him for.” (1 John 5:14-15, HCSB)
