Praying for Change, Sitting in Silence

What servant of Christ with any vision for the church and the glory of God does not pray to be used as a conduit for God’s Spirit to flow through for the purpose of advancing the Kingdom of Christ?  Certainly, our greatest prayer must be for the gospel to be worked into people’s hearts, resulting in changed lives and true worshipers of the Father.  However, when I glance into the mirror of my life, I too often notice I am praying for change while sitting in silence.  Those of us who believe “the gospel is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes,” (Rom. 1:16) are the very ones who deny its power by never heralding the message.  Dr. John Avant, V.P. of Evangelization at NAMB, shares a testimony reminding us of the need to step out of our comfort zones in order to discover, or rediscover, the greatest joy in life.  May we be those who pray for change and speak of the supreme satisfaction for which the world is hungering.
