Prayer for unbelievers, cooperating with God in what He is doing:
“Lord bring to us those who will believe.”
1. Sight: “The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers so that they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.” 2 Cor. 4:4
Lord, give him spiritual sight! Take away his blindness!
2. Light: “But the way of the wicked is like deep darkness; they do not know what makes them stumble.” Proverbs 4:18,19
“For God, who said, ‘Let light shine out of darkness,’ made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ.” 2 Cor 4:6 John “…came as a witness to…that light, so that thought him all men might believe….”The true light that gives light to every man was coming into the world.” John 1:7-9
“Lord, shine the light of the knowledge of the gospel deeply into his heart!”
3. Conviction: The Holy Spirit, “…will convict the world of guilt…in regard to sin because they do not believe in me; in regard to righteousness because I am going to the Father…and in regard to judgment because the prince of this world now stands condemned.” J. 16:8-10
“Lord, may he see his guilt and come to You for forgiveness and surrender!
4. Revelation: “…when I am lifted up I will draw all men to myself.” John 12:32 No man can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him.” John 6:44
“Lord, give him dreams, visions, blessings, tragedies, fears, longings, experiences, relationships, whatever is necessary to move him to seek you.”
5. Repentance: “Those who oppose him he must gently instruct, in the hope that God will grant them repentance leading them to a knowledge of the truth and that they will come to their senses and escape from the trap of the devil, who has taken them captive to do his will.” 2Ti 2:25,26
“Lord, grant him repentance and lead him to a knowledge of the truth, that he may come to his senses and escape from the trap of the devil.”
