Do you ever pray for open doors? I don’t mean the front door of your house. Or the door to the car. I’m talking about the kinds of doors you can’t really see. Would you like to know what happens when those kinds of doors are open? Good. Keep reading…
When you pray for open doors, it means you hope God will give you chances to talk to others about Him. That kind of open door is somebody’s heart.

Well, it also helps you talk to others about God.
When somebody is willing to listen, that’s called an “open door”. And when you find an open door, you need to be ready to say things they need to hear. And answer questions they may have. There’s a place in the Bible where it says when you pray for open doors, you can trust God to help you “know what you ought to say to each one”.
That’s pretty cool. God will help you say what you need to say.
Will you start today? Will you read a little bit in the Bible? I promise…if you do, you’ll be smarter than you were yesterday. Here’s a rhyme to help you remember…
When you pray for open doors
And open minds and open hearts,
Then go open up God’s word…
That’s where helping people starts.
