PRAYER FOR THE LOST
If you are praying for someone to be saved and you have been praying something like this, "Lord come into his life" or "Lord, reveal Yourself to him", try being more specific by praying the following:
"God, please lift the veil that is over him/her." (II Cor. 4:3-4)
"Holy Spirit, hover over him/her and protect him/her."
"Put godly people in his/her pathway each day."
"Cast down anything that would exalt itself against the knowledge of God, specifically pride and rebellion." (II Cor. 10:3-5)
"Take down all strongholds; thought patterns, opinions on religion, materialism and fear." (II Cor. 10:3-5)
"Bind Satan from taking him/her captive; bind all wicked thoughts and lies Satan would try to place in his/her mind." (II Cor. 10:3-5)
"Pray that the armor of God would be placed on him/her." (Eph 6:11-17)
Note: "We know that we are of God, and the whole world lies in the power of the evil one." (I John 5:19) Yet we have been given authority! We can turn unbelievers "from darkness to light and from the dominion of Satan to God." (Acts 26:18)
We are called to enforce and make effectual the freedom Christ procured.
