Prayer Plant Outreach posted by John Sorensen on Apr 27, 2018
Here’s an outreach idea that has growth potential for you and your church.
Hi, I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International. One of our staff enlisted members of his church to pray for each household in their neighborhood every day for two to three weeks. The church purchased small plants popularly called “Prayer Plants” and attached a card with a church invite. Then, on a Saturday, the participants went door-to-door delivering the plant and offering to pray for people. Here’s a sample script. “Hi, we’re your neighbors Jake and Sally from down the street and we have a gift for you. It’s called a prayer plant and it’s to remind you that ‘God still answers prayer.’” When the people accepted the plant, they were asked if they had any prayer requests that the church could pray for. The response was overwhelmingly positive with one couple asking them to come back for coffee and two couples and a single showing up at church the next day.
