The word ‘evangelism’ means sharing good news. For Christians, it means sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ – what he has done for us, and what he continues to do in our lives.
What does that mean in practice? It means introducing the people around us to Jesus. We do this by how we live our lives and how we relate to one another. But we can also do it by how we express our faith in conversation.
Jesus did all of this so well, and he invites us to share the gospel not just in actions but in words too.
This website has been created to help Christians find those words. It’s being launched with a call to prayer for evangelism by the Archbishops of Canterbury and York – please find out more and think about joining us. But this is not a one-off, or a campaign, or a PR stunt. It’s about praying continually that more and more people will become followers of Jesus Christ – and asking God to work among us to bring about this transformation in other people’s lives.
If you’ve never prayed for evangelism before, there are so many ways you can. (We’ve started collecting them on our prayer resources page, so do take a look.) Whether you’re praying alone, with a small group of friends, or with your whole church, you’ll find prayers for asking God to bring the knowledge and reality of Jesus Christ to all kinds of people.
