Power is infused into our prayer life when we couple prayer with God’s Word. When we pray God’s Word, it is as if we are breathing faith. There have been few areas of my prayer life that have drawn me to my knees more than praying for those that I love that don’t know Jesus. Perhaps you too can relate. The abundant life and the hope that we as believers have come to know and embrace cannot be matched by anything this world has to offer, and we desperately long for those that we love to know this hope as we do. Some of you have prayed for years for the same person to place their faith in Jesus Christ. My word of encouragement for you today is this: Don’t stop now! As long as there is breath in their lungs, there is hope for their soul. Be the one who is found on your knees at the feet of your Savior interceding on their behalf. I pray that you will use these few verses below to ignite your prayer life today. Spend some time in God’s Word and in prayer for those that don’t yet know the hope that you profess.
1. John 6:44 – Pray that God draws them to Jesus
2. Jeremiah 29:13 – Pray they seek God with their whole heart
3. 2 Corinthians 4:4 – Pray that God would open their eyes from blindness
4. Romans 10:17 – Pray they believe the Scriptures
5. Psalm 83:16-18 – Pray that God would use the circumstances of life to ripen them to the Gospel
6. Acts 1:8 – Pray that God sends others like me to boldly share the Gospel with them
7. John 16:8 – Pray that the Holy Spirit convicts them of sin
8. Acts 3:19 – Pray they turn from their sin
9. Romans 10:9 – Pray they accept Jesus as Savior and Lord
10. 2 Corinthians 5:15 – Pray they choose to live for Christ and not themselves

Thanks for the timely reminder. I think I need prayer just to pray…

My ex boyfriend and I have recently started talking again. I am 21. He has many wonderful traits that I love!… but is not a Christian. I recommitted my life to Christ 1 year ago!! And that was after we had dated for 8 months and then broken up a few months before my recommittment. I pray that God might use me to bring Him to know Jesus as His personal Savior. I acn’t change him… only God can change him. But these Scriptures will give me words to pray to my Father. Thanks.
Thank you very much for this. I have been studying this for 2 days now and love these verses that I can use to pray for lost loved ones.
I’m 26 years old.I love Christ alot. I did’nt want to be in a relationship with a muslim guy. But i unwillingly fell in love with him. and its been 4 years now. He loves me too and tells me the cruel realities about our marriage and future and i agree with him. He wants to marry me but we both do not ask each other to covert to another religion cause its hard for both of us. But i know wats good for him. and that’s LORD JESUS CHRIST. i love him so much that i want to see him happy even after he dies. And thats only possible if he accepts Jesus Christ. I pray every night around 3am for him. I want him to become Christian. I was looking for such scriptures and i found help. Thanks alot. I think God has given us this reponsability to bring them to the right track. Please pray for him. He needs our help.

Jehovah, I pray for my muslim boyfriend Jamshed, and his muslim mother Diljohn, she is 74 years old very sick in hospital, her body very weak, and cannot walk properly . I pray for her healing of her body & spirit and movement in her legs to come fully alive in the of name Jesus. I pray Diljohn will call out on your name Jesus . And will speak about you Jesus to her family. That Jamshed & Diljohn will know, see, and believe that Jesus is real, the truth, the living, the life, the saviour, and the king that loves Jamshed & Diljohn unconditionally, and that they will be touched by the presence, and power of your name Jesus, in their lives, right now. Give them visions. Appear to them. Show them the way to life. Send your holy angels to preach to Jamshed & Diljohn . Overflow your mercy, and love upon their lives right now, that they will experience the great love of Jesus. I pray for Jamshed & Diljohn that Jesus will appear in their lives today, and will be saved in the name of Jesus. I pray this to Jehovah the father of Abraham, Isaac & Jacob . In Jesus name. Amen .

God Almighty, I come before your throne for my ex-boyfriend who is an athiest and blinded by Satan. Lord Jesus I pray that you will take away the veil which the enemy uses to blind his mind. Please open his eyes that he can see You, the Great I am. Lord sent the right person who can share the Truth who is You Yourself with him. Please prepare and soften his heart to accept You as His Savior. Father I ask that you will draw Martin to you in the mighty name of Jesus. Amen
