And that's important because if our efforts at evangelism and mission are not actually in line with what God is already doing around us, then they are bound to fail. When we do evangelism, we are not initiating something new; we are coming alongside where God is already actively working. Prayer allows us to ask God how we might align with what God is already doing. How can we bless others and reflect God’s image to them? How can we be used by God for God’s purposes in the lives of others?
