Praying for the Lost posted by John Sorensen on Jul 30, 2019

What does your prayer life look like? I’m sure you’re praying for family, friends and probably some major world events. As believers, we know we should pray and we know that prayer works. We’ve seen it.

The Lord wants us to come before Him in prayer for anything we need. He desires a relationship with us and prayer is a big part of that.

But, are our prayers self-centered? Now, I’m certainly not saying you shouldn’t pray for yourself or for your loved ones – you should! Our focus for this week, though, is praying for the lost.

It’s so important for us to lift unbelievers up to the Lord in prayer. We should be burdened for those who don’t know Him and that should motivate us to pray and to witness!

1 John 5:14 says, “This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.” This is great news for Christians praying for the lost because we know that it’s God desire for us to know Him!

How can you best pray for the lost? Set time aside each day to do it. Pray for their hearts to be prepared to hear the Gospel and softened towards God’s Word.

I’ve heard about a church involved with EE in Pueblo, Colorado that has walked every street in the town, specifically praying for the unsaved in the area. This church is now known by everyone as the church who prays for the city! What a wonderful thing to be known for! Not only are they praying, they’re evangelizing everywhere they go!

My challenge for you is this: become more intentional about praying for the lost. One way to do this is by going to ShareLife.Today and downloading the 10 Most Wanted list. This can serve as a guide and a reminder to pray for nonbelievers in your life.

This is our focus this week at Evangelism Explosion through our social media channels and our daily broadcast. We’re focusing on praying that people would come to know Jesus and that He would use us to be a part of that.

May God richly bless you this week as you become more intentional in your prayers!
