5 Ways to Pray for Unbelievers

November 23, 2014

How do I pray for my friends and family who are not yet saved?

1. Pray forprayer God to open doors (Colossians 4:3) – The Apostle Paul, who knew that sometimes God closes doors (see Acts 16:6-10), boldly asked God to open doors for the Gospel to be proclaimed. Ask God to open doors for you to share the Truth with your friends and family.

2. Pray for clarity (Colossians 4:4) – When God does open the doors for you to speak, pray for God to fill your mouth with the right words to clearly explain the Gospel in a grace-filled way.

3. Pray for the consistent witness of your life (Colossians 4:5) – Pray that the Lord will make your life a consistent witness to God’s grace. No Christian will be perfect (until heaven) yet we can ask God to help us to live wisely, especially before “outsiders.” Remember, your life IS a witness to the Gospel. Ask God to make it a clear and effective witness.

4. Pray for gracious speech (Colossians 4:6) – Ask God to give you gracious speech in all you say – at work, with your family, as you pay your bills and talk around the “water cooler.” Unbelievers are listening to hear if what you say about your friends, family, other Christians, the government, and others when they are not around matches up with the way you speak about them when they are present.

5. Pray for their eyes will be enlightened (Ephesians 1:18) – Ask God to open their eyes to the truth of the Gospel and remove the blindness that the Enemy, Satan, has put over their spiritual eyes (Romans 1:21 & Ephesians 4:18).
