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

May they not mentally stumble over Christ and who He is, for He is a stumbling block to some and is like foolishness to others. It’s because they can’t understand; in their natural state spiritual truth is beyond them. (1 Corinthians 1:23; 2:14)

Give them the gift of faith, a measure of faith that will enable them to look to Jesus and believe in Him; if they do, they’ll have eternal life. May they come to know Christ as the resurrection and the life—for whoever believes in Him will live and will never die. (Ephesians 2:8; Romans 12:3; John 6:40; 11:25-26)

Help them to see Jesus as He is, Your Son, and to realize the truth that He died for their sins. Otherwise, He becomes like a stone that blocks their way, a rock that makes them fall, because they can’t believe Your truth. 

Have mercy and as they walk in the dark, help them see a great light. May they understand that the brightness of Your glory is seen in the face of Christ, that You and He are one. (John 10:36; Hebrews 7:27; Isaiah 8:14; 9:2; 2 Corinthians 4:6; John 10:30)

Help them to believe. In Jesus’ name, amen.
