 Please pray for a man from yesterday’s outreach

Yesterday I shared the gospel on a street corner a few blocks away from my home in Uptown Whittier CA. A gentleman who said his name was John sat down and listened to the message and afterward we conversed. He said he was a Christian but admitted to struggling with alcohol, pornography, fear, and schizophrenia. He seemed able to carry on a conversation so I reasoned with him from the scriptures and exhorted him about the need for true repentance and the need to examine one’s self to see if one is in the faith. He seemed very open to the exhortations and tears welled up in his eyes as I encouraged him to dive fully into the arms of God in repentance and full surrender. Before we parted ways I prayed for him. Thanks in advance for your prayers for him. This is a clip of yesterday's outreach (8:18 min. long) in case anyone is curious as to what a typical outreach looks like:

Who knows? It may be that the Lord may call someone reading this post to start reaching out like that in their community. I don't believe all Christians are called to do open air street preaching but I do believe we're all called to share the gospel with those around us and we can do that in various ways.

That is not my calling but I greatly admire and respect you and those that do this.

I will pray for John.

Amen Oracio! Praise the Lord, may God quicken His words to John and the convicting power of the Holy Spirit lead him to repentance.

I will pray for John and you and that God would continue to anoint your preaching and bless your bold witness.
