How to Pray for the Unsaved




Brothers, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for them is that they may be saved. (Romans 10:1)



In Romans, Paul pray that God would convert Israel.  He prayed for their salvation.  And that should be our prayer also for the hoard of unsaved close to us. 



Our plead to God should be to bring to pass in our children, our neighborhood and on the mission field of the world the new covenant promise of God to:

·         Take out their flash of stone and give them a new heart of flash.  (Ezekiel 11:19).

·         Circumcise their heart so that they come to love God (Deuteronomy 30:6).

·         And that the Father put His Spirit within them and cause them to walk in His statures (Ezekiel 36:27).

·         Grant them repentance and a knowledge of the truth of God (2 Timothy 2:25-26).

·         Open their hearts so that they may believe the Gospel (Acts 16:14)

We should be in prayer for our love ones, friends, neighbors, co-worker and people we meet who need to receive the salvation offered only through Jesus.  When we truly have a heart for the lost and pray for their salvation, only then will we see the mighty hand of God drawing those we are praying for to Him.  Let us pray for the unsaved.

When you said, “Seek My face,” My heart said to You, “Your face, Lord I will seek.” (Psalm 27:8 NKJV)



Each day our first goal should be to seek the face of God.  This is how we are able to put on and have an intimate relationship with God.  We are commanded to, “…cloth yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ, and do not think about hoe to gratify the desires of the sinful nature.”  Romans 13:14. When we early in the day we seek God by communicating with God through prayer and reading His word we are being equipped to face whatever people and situations that come our way. When we frequently communicate with the Father and allow the Holy Spirit within us have full control, we will find joy and peace for ourselves and become conduit for joy and peace for others.
