A Prayer for the Lost to be Saved
By: Min. Angela Lee Price, Member Services Director, St. Stephen Church, Louisville, KY
Father, We have come to You by faith this month viligently interceding with all types of prayers in accordance with Your Word (Ephesians 6:18, James 5:15). We believe that the effectual fervent prayers of the righteous availeth much (James 5:16). We pray today for the lost to be saved. We know it is Your will that none should perish for Your Word says, "For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved" (Romans 10:13). Your Word says, "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life (John 3:16). We thank You, O Lord, Jesus saves!
We pray also for new believers to be baptized. Your Word says, "Repent and be baptized everyone of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost" (Acts 2:38). Baptism, Oh Lord, is the first step in obedience to You. Father, Your Son Jesus was baptized and You were there with the Holy Spirit (Matthew 3:16-17)! Not only where You there, Lord, but You spoke saying, "this is my beloved Son in whom I'm well pleased (3:17)" Be pleased with baptism candidates as they prepare for this special occasion in their lives. Don't let the devil steal their joy or any gifts You have given them. We thank you that the wind, and the waves obey Your voice. Finally, Father, we pray for those who has been baptized for all the wrong reasons. May they re-examine themselves by the light of Scripture and run to Your pool for You are a Holy God. In Jesus Name, Amen!
Thank you to everyone who submitted prayers to the Jesus Saves Ministries October United Prayer Initiative, 31 Days of Focused Prayer, and with us. The Scripture say, "We two or three are gathered in my Name I am in the midst." By faith, we know that God has heard our cries for salvation, deliverance, sanctification, spiritual growth for His people, for this nation and for the world. Our plan is to compile the prayers into a keepsake Prayer Journal. The journal will be available at no cost via PDF or for the cost of printing for a bound version. We pray God will use the prayer journal to do exceeding abundantly above all we could ask or think. Keep posting your prayers, and prayer requests in The Prayers of the Righteous Group. We believe the effectual fervent prayers of the righteous availeth much!
