6:00 A.M. FRIDAY - 6:00 A.M. SATURDAY
If you can't recall your time slot see this Alphabetical List

This month we’re going to pray Biblically for the lost, asking God for spiritual awakening in Jacksonville.  You can pray for the lost by name (make a list of lost people you know) and you can pray generally for the lost in our city. 

 

Before we do that, please take a moment to look at the web page at the end of this paragraph.  The Missions Team encourages our church to participate in the state convention’s “One Day Serve Local” right here in Jacksonville.  Would you prayerfully consider registering for one of the ministries offered?  (Most are very COVID friendly!)  www.bit.ly/20servelocal

 

Praying for the lost Biblically is a wise way to approach praying for the lost. You can NEVER go wrong praying scripture back to the Lord.  Name names of lost people you know, and also pray over our town.

 

Pray for God to draw lost people to himself:  No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him. And I will raise him up on the last day.”  John 6:44 
Lord, your Word says that no one can come to you unless you draw them. Would you draw “Joe” to yourself so he can be saved? 

 

Pray for God to open doors between believers and non-believers:  “At the same time, pray also for us, that God may open to us a door for the word, to declare the mystery of Christ, on account of which I am in prison—” Colossians 4:3

Lord, would you open up a door between me and Joe, or another believer and Joe, so someone can share Christ with him? …..  Lord, would you open gospel doors between believers in Jacksonville and  folks in our town who do not know you?

 

Pray for God to open the eyes of the lost:  “To open their eyes, so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in me.’” Acts 26:18

Lord, your word says that unbelievers are in darkness and under the power of Satan. Would you open up Joe’s eyes to the truth so that he can turn from darkness to light and receive forgiveness of his sins?  (and pray this generally for folks in our town)

 

Pray for God to give the lost the knowledge of the truth: “Who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.”  1 Timothy 2:4

 

There are many other verses you could pray.  Ask the Holy Spirit to lead you to pray today. 

 

God bless you as you lift the lost to Christ!
