Father, I pray for (name one or more) …
Send someone to gently instruct them when the time is right in their lives, someone to share the gospel not simply with words, but with power, with the Holy Spirit and deep conviction. May they receive Your Word and accept it, not as the word of men, but as it actually is, the Word of God. (2 Timothy 2:25; 1 Thessalonians 1:4-5; 2:13)
Enlighten them, that they may see Christ as the light of the world and follow Him so they will never walk in darkness, but have the light of life. Show them Your unfailing love and grant them Your salvation. (Psalm 13:3; John 8:12; Psalm 85:7)
Have mercy on them, as You had on Paul. I know He once was a Pharisee who opposed Jesus, who persecuted Your people and put them in prison. He was violent, acting in ignorance and unbelief—yet the grace of our Lord was poured out on him abundantly, along with faith and love. May it be so for these I pray for—apart from grace, they cannot be saved. (Acts 26:5, 9-11; 1 Timothy 1:13-14; Ephesians 2:8-9)
In Your mercy, pour out Your grace. In Jesus’ name, amen.
