Prayer for the Unsaved

Praying for our unsaved friends, family members and others is the best way to begin reaching them for Christ. We should pray for the unsaved for God to draw them to Himself (John 6:44), so that they would seek to know God (Deuteronomy 4:29), for them to believe the Scriptures (Romans 10:17), so that Satan would be prevented from blinding them to the truth (2 Corinthians 4:4), for the Holy Spirit to work in them (John 16:8,13), so that they would believe in Christ as Savior (John 5:24), so that they would turn from sin (Acts 3:19), so that they would confess Christ as Lord (Romans 10:9,10), and so that they would take root and grow in Christ (Colossians 2:6,7).

Charles H. Spurgeon once writes;
If you really desire that men should be saved, pray for them. It is an empty wish, a mere formality, if you do not turn it into prayer. Every loving desire for any man or woman should, by the believer, be taken before God in prayer. We cannot expect that God will save men unless His people pray for it. There must be travail before the birth, and there must be travail in prayer with God before we can expect that many will be born again into the church of God. Oh, for more prayer! Let us cry to God in secret, and in the family, and in all our assemblies, that God would save the sons of men.”

THINK BIG Think of others, the unsaved people around you.
Would you stop from self-centered prayers and start praying for them?
START SMALL. Start with those who are closed to you.
GO DEEP. Trust that God will work the Message of Salvation in their lives. Pray.
