40 Ways to Pray – the Lost

Day 38 – Pray for those who do not know Jesus as their Savior

We see them every day.  They could be family, coworkers, friends, people at the restaurant, or next to you at the traffic light.  They could be sitting next to you in church.  Who are they – people who do not know Jesus as their personal Savior.  As I type this I am reminded by God that this could actually be you.

My heart sinks.

Jesus came to pay the penalty for my and your sins.  The Father sent Him as the perfect sacrifice as a payment for the penalty of our sins against God.  All we have to do is admit that we are a sinner, repent of our sins, accept the gift of salvation, and dedicate our life to Jesus.

But there are people we know who have never turned their life to Jesus, and some of them will never know unless we tell them.  It’s not my preacher’s job to tell them about Jesus – it is mine.  And it is yours if you are saved by the grace of God.

So our prayers should include asking God to reveal a person that we know who needs to hear the good news of salvation in Jesus Christ alone.  Ask God to reveal that person to you and then ask for boldness to share how Jesus made a change in your life.

My Prayer for Today

Lord I know that I have friends that I work with and family members that I am not certain that they know the free pardon of sin in Jesus.  Show me one person today that I can witness to about the love of Jesus and how He alone can save our lives from hell and give us an eternity of hope and joy.  In the powerful name of Jesus I pray.
