Serving God with Power to Change - Digital Strategies.

A Cool Story

This Tuesday morning I heard a great story from one of our staff mentors who discovered a Facebook message that had come in a month ago asking for prayer and was unanswered. She responded, apologized to the visitor for the delay and also shared the gospel with them using one of the pre-written templates that we provide to our mentors. The template suggests the following prayer that the visitor is invited to pray in order to be made right with God.

"Lord Jesus, I need You. Thank You for dying on the cross for my sins. I open the door of my life and receive You as my Savior and Lord. Thank You for forgiving my sins and giving me eternal life. Take control of the of my life, and make me the kind of person You want me to be. In Jesus’ name, Amen.”
After sending this, along with her own prayer for the visitor, the mentor asked if the person had prayed this prayer at some point in their life, or just recently after receiving it. The response from the visitor: "Is my first time"! And their conversation continues.

Praise the Lord for this new life changed forever. Please continue to pray for this mentor, and all our mentors, as they respond daily to people like this who are searching the Internet for answers and hope.
