How to pray for the lost today

It is far too easy to become sidetracked with day-to-day living. Our jobs, our chores, they can dominate our days — and our thoughts. But, those of us who are Christians — new creations born of the very Spirit of God — should never allow this world to distract us from the reason we are here. God saved us for His glory. We are to be his witnesses. Our Lord Jesus commissioned us to “go and make disciples” of all nations. Sure, we all have to earn a living, but we LIVE for God’s glory and purpose.

The world is full of people who are lost with absolutely no knowledge of Jesus Christ. At the very least we can pray for them. Operation World has compiled information on many of the world’s people groups, making it possible for us to pray specifically for them. If you would like to pray specifically for the lost today how about praying for these people…

And, while you are thinking about it, remember that there are lost people living all around us — we see them every day. Consider telling them about Jesus personally.

It’s why we are here.

    Interesting that we think Jesus command was to make ‘converts”. He said disciples. Much more of a commitment!
