“He leads ME in the paths of righteousness for HIS OWN NAME’S SAKE”. (Psalm 23) The first petition of the Lord’s prayer is that all men may hallow God’s name. It is an evangelistic prayer. It is, also, a prayer for ourselves through whom lost people are to come to know God’s name and nature. We are part of God’s equation! A dead church cannot preach a living Christ. A sinful church cannot preach a holy God. “Everyone who names the name of the Lord is to abstain from wickedness. . .Therefore, if anyone cleanses himself from these things, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified, useful to the Master” (2 Timothy 2:19,21) As you speak to the Lord today about your lost friends, will you ask Him to teach you a life of righteousness? He will use you to draw others to himself.
