Prayer For Unsaved Loved Ones

A Christian is anyone who has had a personal encounter with Jesus Christ, and patterns his or her life according to the desires of God. It's expected of every genuine Christian feels heartbroken knowing that the people they love aren't saved. 

Evangelism is the heartbeat of Jesus Christ, same way it is for everyone who is Christ's. The first step to winning souls is by praying for the unsaved, that is why we bring you this prayer for unsaved loved ones. 

It is normal and expected for child of God to feel sad each time they remember that their loved ones are still in the path of darkness. That alone should compel such a Christian to pray for their unsaved loved one. 

Prayer For Unsaved Loved Ones

It is not enough for us to wish that our loved ones knew Christ. We have a responsibility to do our best in order to bring them into the kingdom. 

Matthew 5:15 ESV
Neither do men light a lamp, and put it under the bushel, but on the stand; and it shineth unto all that are in the house.

Our Lord Jesus Christ says that everyone who believes in Him is a light in this world. You are the light in that family. God saved you so that through you others can also be saved. 

It neither a mistake nor a happenstance that you are saved among all your family members. God put you there as the light, which will guide others to Him. 

God is counting on you to lead your unsaved loved ones back to Christ. It could be your friends, colleagues, brother, sister, uncle, aunt, spouse, cousin, nephew, niece or even your parents. You have to live with the consciousness that you have a part to play to see to it that they are saved—believing Christ in their heart and confessing the Lordship of Jesus with their mouth.

James 5:16 (KJV)
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.

The above scripture gives us insight on what to do concerning our unsaved loved ones. It is not enough to feel hurt or heart broken over the fact that your loved ones are still living worldly life. One should instead channel that feeling in the right direction. Let that hurt be turned into love for them, the kind of love and zeal that pulls them to Christ. 

We have seen in the holy scriptures that the prayer of a righteous man has the ability to bring to pass the impossible. No matter how far that family member of yours has gone in the wrong path, your prayer has the ability to place them back on the right path. 

No matter how deep they have been in sin, your prayer can rescue them. It doesn't matter how far they have gone into darkness, your prayer can cause them to encounter the light.

Praying for your unsaved loved ones is one great thing you can do for them. Instead of looking down, discriminating and condemning them, seize every opportunity to show them the love of Christ, while praying for them in secret. 

One powerful thing about prayer is that we can effectively use it to change any situation. You do not have the power to convict a sinner, but through prayer you can ask the Holy Spirit to do so on your behalf. 

You don't have the ability to change or save anyone, but you can ask God to intervene in the life of an unsaved person and save them. As a redeemed child of God that desires the salvation of their unsaved loved ones, prayer is key to making it happen. 

It is with prayer that we confound the enemy and deliver those he has held captive. Prayer does not ony change things, it also changes people. 

Praying for your unsaved loved ones is committing them completely into the hands of God. Praying for them is giving God the go-ahead to turn their lives around as He turned yours around.

Final Thoughts On Prayer For The Unsaved

I believe that every true Christian already knows that it's important to intercede for the unsaved; or at least you have learned that from this article. 

As Jesus Christ interceeds for us in Heaven, we also ought to interceed for others (including the unsaved) on earth. 

God needs a man to stand in the gap for the unsaved souls in this world. In the place of prayer, new born babes are birthed spiritually into the Kingdom of God.

By praying for your unsaved loved ones, you fulfil the desire and will of God. Praying for your unsaved friends and family members proves that you love them genuinely and you don't want them to perish. 

God's desire to see all men saved can only be actualized when a child of God rises up to pray for the salvation of the lost.

With prayer, we wage war against the enemy that held people captive and prevented them from stepping out of darkness. 

God is counting on you to arise and pray for the lost souls of those around you to be saved. Do not relent. 

Remain blessed.
