Father, I pray for (name one or more) …

May the Spirit convict these who are lost of their sin and their need for righteousness. In Your kindness, I ask You to lead them to repentance, to a new direction in mind, heart and belief. (John 16:8; Romans 2:4)

Grant them the repentance that will lead them to a knowledge of the truth, so that they may repent and believe the good news of the gospel—for unless they repent, they will perish. (2 Timothy 2:25; Mark 1:15; Luke 13:3, 5)

Send the Holy Spirit to help them understand that the wages of sin is death—and that they will die in their sins if they choose not to repent and believe. Even in the last hours of their lives, lead them to call out to Christ, like the thief on the cross, that they may be saved. (Romans 6:23; John 8:21; Luke 13:3, 5; 23:42-43)

May they understand that Christ died in their place, that He paid the price for all their sins, that He died once for everyone, that they have no other hope. In their understanding, may they believe. (Hebrews 2:9; 1 Peter 3:18; 1 John 2:2; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-14; John 3:16)
May they turn to You. In Jesus’ name, amen.
