You pray for the salvation of those you love.
Here’s how to say the Gospel in 25 words:
“The wrong things we do separate us from God. Jesus Christ died, paying our penalty, and rose again, proving he is God. Trust in Him.”*
*Michael Rydelnik, host of Moody Radio’s Open Line Program.
Knowing God’s promises helps you pray.
“For no matter how many promises God has made, they are ‘Yes’ in Christ (2 Corinthians 1:20).”
Knowing God’s character helps you pray.
“Who is a God like you, pardoning iniquity . . . because he delights in steadfast love (Micah 7:18).”
Daniel knew God reveals mysteries, so he asked for that (Daniel 2:28).
When God answered, even the king said, “Your God is God of gods and Lord of kings, and a revealer of mysteries (Daniel 2:47).”
If you know what God can do, you can ask Him to do it.
“Work for the peace and prosperity of the city where I sent you . . . Pray to the Lord for it (Jeremiah 29:7).”
Work and pray, remembering that “Here we have no lasting city, but we seek the city that is to come (Hebrews 13:14).”
As you pray for the lost, remember they are “his people and the sheep of his hand (Psalm 95:7).”
Also remember what God does. If a man has a hundred sheep, and one of the goes astray, does he not leave the ninety-nine on the mountains and go in search of the one that went astray (Matthew 18:12)?
Praise God for his mighty deeds;
Praise him according to his excellent greatness (from Psalm 150:2).
Let the high praises of God be in our throats (from Psalm 149:6).
