    V. 3 - " ..... speaketh unto men to edification ..... " That - is witnessing; the O.T. prophets were witnessing. They prayed for guidance on what to say - just as we are to do today, and not to witness on our own without His spirit in us to guide us to someone who is hungering for 'something' - they may not know what. God is so real and He will help us in any area we need help, if we PRAY.
