Prayer points for friends and family members who have not given their lives to Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.
When we become closer to God, we enjoy so much benefits from Him and we wish that many or all our friends and family members would come to the knowledge of God like us. We often try to talk to them, invite them to church or community events or even share the love of Christ directly with them. However, these may not lead to the expected results. In some occasion it may even seem like our intervention has taken them further from God. In this situation, we need to pray for them and continue to do do.
The following prayer points will help you to commit their hearts to God and pray that they find God by themselves.
He went on to say, “This is why I told you that no one can come to me unless the Father has enabled them.” John 6:65
We are all made in the image of God and bear resemblance to the Almighty, however sin came into us through Adam and therefore, the need for salvation from sin. In the book of 2 Corinthians 4:4, the bible talks about the blind folding of people's minds by the god of this age. Therefore, they need spiritual support and we provide it to them in the place of prayers. The Almighty God will answer as we pray in the name of Jesus.
