Hello, everyone! I hope you are having a wonderful fall.
Lately, I’ve been thinking quite a bit about how the people of this world need Jesus. So many of the problems we face would be alleviated if two things happened: if Christians were concerned about living for God and reaching people for him, and if more people were saved from hearing the gospel from those Christians.
I know these things are nothing new. 🙂 But since we all recognize that they are true, let me remind you of two things each of us can do to help this world: live dedicated to following God, and pray seriously.
I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; – 1 Timothy 2:1
Great revivals have happened because people seriously prayed. So I have a challenge for you – will you earnestly, consistently ask God to change your heart, the hearts of Christians, and the hearts of the unsaved?
And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: – 1 John 5:14
Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints; – Ephesians 6:18
How long you pray is a personal matter; what’s more important is truly praying, not just thinking about how great revival would be and how sad the current state of affairs is. We must ask God – not just once, but regularly – to work mightily in people’s hearts. We can pray for opportunities to reach people, for specific souls, for the areas we live in, for the world at large, and more. The important thing is that we recognize people’s dire need for God, and pray.
Everyone can pray, so will you make a commitment with me? Will you dedicate definite, consistent time to pray for the world?
Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. – James 5:16
Continue in prayer, and watch in the same with thanksgiving; – Colossians 4:2
You might be a little confused by this post. What does it mean to be saved? If you don’t know, or if you have any questions about God, the Bible, or prayer, or anything you would like me to pray with you about, please contact me here. I would be honored to answer your questions.
Do you have a testimony about an answer to prayer?
Will you pray with me?
