When I spend time making my requests known unto God, the main thing I want is to pray the will of God to be done on earth as it is in heaven. The Bible is full of instructions on how to pray for fellow believers. So what does the scripture say about praying for the unbeliever?
1. Jesus tells us
- Love your enemy.
- Bless those who curse you.
- Do good to those that hate you.
- Pray for those that use you and persecute you.
2. Two things God does not desire
- He is not willing that any perish.
- He does not take pleasure in the death of the wicked.
3. Two things God desires
- That all would come to repentance.
- That the wicked would turn from their evil ways and live.
Lord I pray for my unsaved family. I know you are not willing that any would perish, but desire that all would come to repentance. And I thank you that you do not take pleasure in the death of the wicked, but desire them to turn from their evil ways and live. Give them a heart to know you. Give them a desire to serve you. Amen.
