Grief and Loss Prayers
Prayer to Believe in Christ's Name
Father, I'm praying for (name one or more)
and others in my circle of family and friends
who need Christ...
As I pray for these who are not yet saved, there is so much at stake. I can't help but think of all the lives they'll touch and pray for in their lifetimes following their salvation, and the impact they can have for generations to come! (Psalm 22:30–31)
I thank You that You have clearly said in Your Word that You want the lost to come to You through Christ—that You want all men to be saved and come to a knowledge of the truth. I thank You that Jesus gave Himself as a ransom for all men. No one was left out of His sacrifice; the price has already been paid. (1 Timothy 2:1–6)
Jesus came into the world as the true light that gives light to every person. May these who are unsaved see His light and be drawn to it, loving it more than the darkness. May they receive Christ and believe in His name—trusting and relying on Him, not simply understanding who He is—for those who do are given the right to become Your children. (John 1:9; 3:19; 1:12)
Grant them new life.
In Jesus' name, amen.
