Apologists are not known for their prayer activity. That is not to say that we don’t pray, it is just that is not what stands out. Ironically, there are some specific prayer points that apologists should be praying for. If you are an apologist, consider praying for these specific items:
- Pray that more local churches would embrace an apologetics ministry.
- Pray for the ministries of well known apologists, that they would be effective and that they would avoid moral failure.
- Pray for the lesser known apologists, that they would not be discouraged.
- Pray for Christian universities and seminaries that are active in teaching apologetics.
- Pray for Christian university students, that they would grow in their faith rather than fall away.
- Pray that youth pastors would include an apologetics element into their youth ministry.
- Pray for sincere seekers who are open to the Gospel but who are struggling with certain issues.
- Pray for Christians who are struggling with doubt.
There are many other things that we could pray about but I think this is a good start.
