I want to search for every instance of or reference to prayer for evangelism/mission in the NT.

For example Matt 9:38 or Col 4:2-6. 

The closest I've come is using this: 

(<PreachingTheme = Mission>, {Section <PreachingTheme = Mission>}) INTERSECTS (<PreachingTheme = Evangelism>, {Section <PreachingTheme = Evangelism>}) INTERSECTS (<PreachingTheme = Prayer: Petition>, {Section <PreachingTheme = Prayer: Petition>})

I'm pretty sure that's not the best way to do it!! And it misses Col 4:2-6 altogether.

Can anyone point me to better search parameters? 

Thanks

Col 4:2-6 has PreachingTheme Prayer: Intercession

({Section <PreachingTheme = Evangelism>} OR {Section <PreachingTheme = Mission>}) INTERSECTS ({Section <PreachingTheme = Prayer: Intercession>} OR {Section <PreachingTheme = Prayer: Petition>})

Searching individual terms found Section syntax finds Bible pericopes.

Preaching Themes documentation shows three Prayer themes so search modification is

({Section <PreachingTheme = Evangelism>} OR {Section <PreachingTheme = Mission>}) INTERSECTS {Section <PreachingTheme Prayer>}
