Did you know that you CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE?

Yes, you can make a difference in this year's Summer Olympics. You can be a part
of changing someone's life forever. Ok. You are probably saying "What can I do?
I can't go there. What are you talking about?"

Well I am talking about PRAYER. Every Christian can be praying.
What else can you do as a Christian? Check my suggestions below.

Here are a few practical things that any Christian can do
during the Olympics right from their home:

1: As you watch the games pray for each participant. Pray for their salvation.
If they are believers then pray for their walk with the Lord.
2: Pray for the safety of the athletes.
3: Pray for those that are in Beijing, China for Outreach and Evangelism.
4: Pray for the Lord to give the workers divine appointments. Pray that the Lord
would open and prepare the hearts of those that need to hear the Word of God
and the message of salvation.
5: Consider have a small gathering with other believers. You can watch the events
together and pray in agreement for the athletes and workers.
6: Have a few visitors over that are not Christians. Share with them what the
real "victory" is.
7: Consider renting or borrowing from the library the movie "Chariots of Fire" a true
story about a Christian and his choices relating to the Olympics of his time.
8: Use your own thoughts and ideas. You are only limited by your own imagination.
