A COMPANION TO THE "A BETTER STORY" MESSAGE SERIES

DAY EIGHTEEN

PRAY FOR POWER

“When I came to you, I did not come with eloquence or human wisdom as I proclaimed to you the testimony about God. For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and him crucified. I came to you in weakness with great fear and trembling. My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power, so that your faith might not rest on human wisdom, but on God’s power.” (1 Corinthians 2:1–5)
What does someone need to hear? How can I convince them about Jesus?

Though we certainly don’t want to sound uninformed, we can take comfort in knowing that one of the greatest evangelists of all time had a very plain message. Plain, but empowered by God.

PRAYER

Almighty God, we trust you to give us the right words to say. We trust that you will help people hear what they need to hear. We believe that you’ll be faithful to send workers and open doors for the gospel. Send your spirit to demonstrate your power in wonderful ways in people’s lives—so that they would know and believe the good news of Jesus Christ. I pray specifically for these people, that they would see you and come to know you:
