“In the day of my trouble I will call upon You, For You will answer me.” Psalm 86:7
“Then you shall call, and the LORD will answer; you shall cry, and He will say, ‘Here I am.'” Isaiah 58:9
“For the same Lord over all is rich to all who call upon Him.” Romans 10:12
“And it shall come to pass that whoever calls on the name of the LORD shall be saved.” Joel 2:32 [See also Acts 2:21, Romans 10:13.]
“The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears, and delivers them out of all their troubles.” Psalm 34:17
“The LORD is near to all who call upon Him, to all who call upon Him.” Psalm 145:18
“The … prayer of a righteous man avails much.” James 5:16
What encouraging assurances are these! How can God deny me anything now that I pray for? He has passed His word. His Son has purchased every blessing. The Holy Spirit inspires the prayer; the word holds it forth, and the prayer of faith lays hold of it and actually receives it.
Prayer is the mouth of faith. If you will have much, “open your mouth wide,” and it shall be filled. Who then should not be stirred up to pray much! O what foolishness is this, that we have nothing but may obtain all from God and yet are so loath to pray much, and pray right!
Holy Spirit, be a spirit of prayer in me. Help my infirmities. Subdue my corruptions. And stimulate my soul to pray without ceasing.
Devotion by Karl Heinrich von Bogatzky (1690—1774)

to give a reason for the Hope that you have (1 Peter 3:15). When you can’t share the gospel with your words, share it by leaving tracts that tell people about God's grace.
When leaving a tract, always be diligent to pray about the short gospel message. Pray that it be found by someone who is in need of Jesus’ saving grace, and pray that the person will have a tender heart and open ears to receive the gift Jesus desires to give them.
By the power of the Holy Spirit, even a small tract can help in turning a broken sinner from darkness to light.
