Bondman, that has not been my experience. Let me hasten to say that I am not an evangelist either by call or by gifting, but I have found that when I offer to pray for someone - even a rank non-believer - I very seldom get a refusal. Even if they are totally cynical about the exercise, most are touched that I offered.DUSTY. Over the years I've become aware that evangelism by, for example, asking a person if they need prayer seems to work well in the U.S. Is Canada similar maybe? Australia today isn't. We are a post-Christian society where most people would look at you like you were mad if you asked if they needed prayer!!
