Scripture For Today:

Psalm 88:2

“May my prayer come before you; turn your ear to my cry.”

Praying for Unsaved Loved Ones pt 1

We have been studying about praying according to God’s Will. The past couple of days, we focused on not negating our prayers by negative thinking, negative speaking and negative actions. 

I also hinted around that you can do the same thing when you pray for your loved ones and friends. I gave the example of my wife praying for me every single day for FOUR YEARS before I accepted the Lord into my life.  That is FAITH! Amen!

But, once I learned even more about the authority that we have in Christ, I gained the confidence to pray for my loved ones, my family, my kids, grandkids, etc. as if I was praying for myself or my wife. We HAVE that same authority. Amen!

And, once I prayed for them to come to the Lord – that sealed the deal in my mind and in my spirit. I don’t have to beg God to save them anymore. I have HIS WORD on the matter. And HIS WORD is His Will (we  have been studying that, amen)!  And since He cannot lie and His Word is TRUE – I don’t have to keep ASKING for Him to save my family – it’s already a done deal!

Praise God!  Somebody just got that! Amen!

You see, my family, living in my house are under my authority!  Praise God! I went to battle many times with the devil over my kids. And bless God, WE WON many times, too. We have never lost! It may have appeared we were losing, but our confessions never changed and, long story short – WE WON EVERY TIME!

The battle may not have appeared to go the way we wanted – but God still brought about the victory and the answer to our prayers. Amen!

As far as my other relatives and friends, you may not have the authority to pray over the influences they are allowing into their lives. BUT – you can pray the Lord will send His laborers to cross their paths and witness for them. Amen!  

And there is not any devil in hell that can stop that from happening. Praise God!

Now, let me say this, you DO have some authority for family members that do not live with you. Although they do not live under your IMMEDIATE authority, you can still rebuke Satan and command he take his hands off of your family members. You can also CLAIM their salvation in the Name of Jesus.

Between binding the devil and loosing angels to bring witnesses across family and friends paths, you ARE changing the dynamics of their day to day lives and you are bringing about that change by the Word of God. Amen!

These things are written for us to use and to believe and to stand on – in the Name of Jesus.

This is not “wishful thinking.” This is Spiritual COMBAT at the highest level. And since Jesus has already won the war – He has given us the authority to USE HIS NAME here on earth. And we can use that authority effectively – if YOU will only believe.

Amen! I know I’m over time so I have to wrap this up for today. But we will take it up right here again tomorrow. 

Let’s Pray!
