After listening to a number of pastors like Dr. David Jeremiah preaching about the end times and seeing what is happening in the world, it looks like the time is very near. We have posted this prayer because there is an urgency to reach as many loved ones and friends as soon as possible with the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. They need to be ready for what is coming. 2 Timothy 3:1 “But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come.”

Heavenly Father, I come to You in Jesus’ Name to bring to You the names of the following people who are lost and need to invite Jesus Christ into their lives for salvation and eternity in Heaven: [insert names here]. In the powerful Name of Jesus, I ask that You tear down the works of Satan for the people on this list. Show them the destructiveness of false doctrine, unbelief, atheistic teaching, hatred, apathy, the love of the world, lust of the flesh, etc. 2 Corinthians 10:4-5For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ.

I desire that You make clear to each person the true meaning of John 3:16. “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” There is no other way to go to Heaven for eternity. I ask that You direct me to share the Gospel with them, or that You send a messenger who is a good witness for Jesus Christ – a person who can help them understand the process of salvation and how to become a child of God.

Jesus, thank you for giving Your life on the cross for salvation to all mankind and providing the joy of the Lord to all who accept and believe in You as their Savior. Amen.

We have reposted this prayer because of the critical urgency of this topic.

Heavenly Father, I come to You in Jesus’ Name to bring to You the following people who are lost and need to invite Jesus Christ into their life for salvation: ________, _________, and ________. Make clear to them the meaning of John 14:6. Jesus said, “‘I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

In the Name of Jesus, I ask for the people on this list for You to tear down all the works of Satan such as false doctrine, unbelief, atheistic teaching, hatred, apathy, the love of the world, lust of the flesh etc. “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ.2 Corinthians 10:4-5

I desire that for each person, You would bring their thoughts into captivity to the obedience of Jesus and that the Holy Spirit would work in their lives about their need of salvation. I ask that You send a messenger to them who is a good witness for Jesus Christ. A person who can help them in understanding the process of salvation and how to become a child of God.

I bring these requests to You based on the promise in Mark 10:27. Jesus said,¬† “‘… with men it is impossible, but not with God; for with God all things are possible.‘” Jesus, thank you for giving Your life on the cross for all mankind and for providing the joy of the Lord to all who believe in Jesus Christ as Savior.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen
