The Flying Man Pt 10: Further Reflections by Greg Parsons

January 8, 2009

(Read the original article published in the Nov/Dec edition of Mission Frontiers magazine)

Parsons short reflection doesn’t cover the topics of the magazine like Dr. Winter’s editorial did.  Instead he tells the story of a conversation with his friend, and ways we can engage Muslims in our workplace and neighborhood.  He recommends a book called Muslims, Christians and Jesus by Carl Medearis and shares the practical advise to share Jesus with friends (specifically a Muslim friend) by asking them to pray with them.

The power of prayer is amazing.  We can so easily share our beliefs about Christ through praying for our friends and co-workers in front of them.  A lot of times we are afraid to share steps to evangelize, fearing that we will shove our “religion” on others.  How easy is it for us to pray for those around us; most people are willing to allow prayer and see it as a non confertational.

Take opportunities people give you to share Christ with them through prayers.  When they share hurtful things in thier life, health issues, or joys, ask to pray with them and follow up.
