Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful. And pray for us, too, that God may open a door for our message, so that we may proclaim the mystery of Christ, for which I am in chains. Pray that I may proclaim it clearly, as I should. Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity. Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone. 
~Colossians 4:2-6

Praying Neighbors - If every SC Baptist prayed for 12 neighbors by name, lostness in SC would be saturated in prayer.  You can prepare an interactive prayer list at http://pray4everyhome.com/ (Source: SCBC Evangelism).
