Prayer Evangelism

Cell evangelism strategies abound: picnics, barbeques, videos, the empty chair, and many more. I've written about these techniques in my books and promote all of them. Yet, let's face it: only God can convert a soul.
Our well-packaged methods might get people to attend the cell or even to repeat a "sinner's prayer," but they can't make regeneration happen.  Only God can do that. We can plant, and we can water, but ultimately only God can give the increase (1 Corinthians 3:6-8).

Scripture says in Ephesians 6: 11-12: " Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms." Satan and his demons have blinded people's minds, and they're unable to see the glorious gospel of Christ.

I've prayed the "sinner's prayer"  with people who were never truly saved. No fruit. Those who come to Christ in response to prayer, on the other hand, are supernaturally awakened and continue in the faith. They become part of the body of Christ and learn to share transparently in the cell. A supernatural outworking takes place that touches the souls of non-Christians.
The Scripture tells us in 2 Corinthians 4:4, "The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God." Only prayer can break the hold of the enemy and open blind eyes.

If we're going to see our friends, family, neighbors and work associates won to Christ, we must pay the price in prayer. Effective cells and cell leaders are dedicated to prayer. They recognize the most effective tool to win non-Christians to Christ is through fervent prayer. They take the words of Paul seriously: "Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful" (Colossians 4:2).
