Step 1: Pray
YOU + GOD, Importante ang prayer para makapag-share tayo ng Gospel. Pero it may not be the kind of prayer na naiisip mo. Instead of one-way conversation with our Lord, importante na mag-spend talaga tayo ng time sa presensya Niya at ma-fill tayo ng Holy Spirit Niya every day.

Ang bawat Gospel-sharing ay nagsisimula sa prayer - pero baka hindi ito tulad ng prayer na nasa isip mo.

Maraming pagkakataon we get caught up in a one way conversation with God. Pero mayroong tatlong importanteng parts ang prayer when we’re living ‘Life On Mission’.

Una, we get into God’s presence. Hindi importante kung kailan o saan mo gagawin ito, or even kung gaano kahaba, basta ang importante ay ginagawa mo ito. It can be as simple as saying, “I’m here Lord, I love you, anong gusto mong ipagawa sa akin today?” And then through worship and reading the Bible, hayaan mong ifill ka ng Holy Spirit.

Second part is ipag pray natin ang kung sinumang iniimpress ni Lord sa puso natin. Pwedeng ‘yung bagong kakilala mo or kahit ‘yung matagal mo nang pinagppray.

Lastly, sabi sa Bible pray without ceasing - ito ‘yung pangatlong part. And parang challenging man, kung iisipin mo lang ang prayer na nakikipag usap ka with your Heavenly Father, makikita mong powerful talaga ito.

I-challenge mo ang sarili mo na i-practice ito for an hour, tapos dagdagan mo pag tumagal, tapos whole day! Ma-aamaze ka sa mga mangyayari.
