Daily Prayer Request
"John the Baptist" - Taxi Driver
Recently I took a taxi to Nima market in Accra, Ghana where I’ve been witnessing to some Mamprusi women. After coming to an agreement on the price, I got in the taxi and began chatting with driver, John. I asked him if he attended any church, and he mentioned a mainline denomination which is growing very quickly in Ghana. I quoted Romans 10:9-10 to him and asked if he’d ever confessed Jesus as His Lord and Savior. He told me he did know Christ, but he had a shocked look on his face. He said, “Madam, I’ve carried so many people in my taxi, but you are the first to ever talk to me about Christ.”
As my taxi ride came to an end, I challenged John to witness to every person who got in his taxi. I reminded him of John the Baptist who prepared the way for Christ. I said, “John, I want you to bring people to a knowledge of sin and repentance, new life in Christ, just as John the Baptist did.”
Ask God to give missionaries who regularly travel by taxi boldness to witness as they go. Pray also for Baptists in West Africa, that they would use daily opportunities like this to share the gospel message, to bring people to a saving faith in Christ and to encourage those who already know Him.
