“To Him all the prophets witness that, through His name, whoever believes in Him will receive remission of sins.” Acts 10:43
“Your name is ointment poured forth.” Song of Solomon 1:3
“The name of the LORD is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe.” Proverbs 18:10
In this name we should draw near to the Father in prayer — and not approach Him with a strange fire of our own, kindled from the fancied merit of devotion — and He will draw near to us again (James 4:8). He will certainly grant our petitions, and we shall receive, that our joy may be full (John 16: 24).
“You, Lord, are good, and ready to forgive, and abundant in mercy to all those who call upon You” (Psalm 86:5).
“For all the promises of God in Him are yea and in Him Amen, unto the glory of God by us” (2 Cor 1:20); so that every believer may say,
“The Lord will receive my prayer” (Psalm 6:9).
“Blessed be God, who has not turned away my prayer nor His mercy from me” (Psalm 66:20), for
“He has dealt bountifully with me” (Psalm 13:6).
Yes, for in Jesus He has blessed me with all spiritual blessings, adopted me for His own child, constituted me His heir, and appointed me to fill a throne of glory. O the riches of grace, of free and sovereign grace! I ascribe it to grace and grace alone, that I am out of hell, on the road to heaven, and expecting glory, honor, and immortality. From grace flows all the good, and to grace be all the glory.

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.
