Intercessory Prayer

How Do I Pray For The Lost and Not Saved Sibling, Friend, Co-Worker, and Neighbor?
I challenge each of you to lead one, bring one to Christ. How to pray for that person.

1. Ask God to open their Spiritual eyes.
II Corinthians 4:1-4
1 Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not;
2 But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God.
3 But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:
4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

2. Ask God to open their Spiritual capacity.
II Timothy 2:24-26
24 And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient,
25 In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth;
26 And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.

3. Ask God to give them ears to hear, eyes to see, and a mind to understand.
Matthew 13:15-16
15 For this people’s heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.
16 But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear.

4. Ask God to give them faith to believe
Luke 17:5
And the apostles said unto the Lord, Increase our faith.

5. Ask God to give them the will to respond.
Luke 11:1
11 And it came to pass, that, as he was praying in a certain place, when he ceased, one of his disciples said unto him, Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples.

6. Ask God to set people in their paths.
Matthew 9:38
Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.

7. Ask God to build a relationship with the lost/unsaved
Philippians 1:21
For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.

8. Ask God for the opportunity to witness
Colossians 4:3
Withal praying also for us, that God would open unto us a door of utterance, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in bonds:

9. Ask God for boldness to speak your words.
Acts 4:29
And now, Lord, behold their threatenings: and grant unto thy servants, that with all boldness they may speak thy word,

10. Ask God for an opportunity to invite the lost, unsaved to an event sponsored by the church that is not a church service.
Matthew 9:38
Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.

Brothers and Sisters, I invite each of you to the harvest.

Accept Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, today. Today is the day of salvation. Now is the accepted time. You may not have tomorrow. Salvation is free. Have a Blessed Day.
