A Prayer For Unsaved Loved Ones

A prayer for your unsaved loved onesDo you long to see your nearest and dearest come to know Jesus as their personal Saviour and Lord?

Do you want to prepare your heart for personal evangelism?

Do you want prayer points for winning souls?

Sometimes it’s easy to get discouraged when praying for the salvation of friends or family members and we begin to wonder if our prayers actually help.

Well, guess what?

They do make a difference!

Your prayers are a powerful force in the lives of your unsaved relatives and loved ones if you pray the Word of God over them.

Here is a 10 point prayer taken from ‘Too Busy NOT to Pray’ by Bill Hybels’.

These are all based on scripture.
