“Possibly the only example needed to illustrate intercession for the lost is the sacrifice of intercessory death that our Lord Jesus Himself made… The Bible tells us that even now Christ is involved in intercessions for us in heaven.”
— Manley Beasley
“i exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplication, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; …god our savior; who will have all men to be saved”
1 timothy 2:1-4
TODAY’S PRAYER THOUGHT
Aligning our lives with God’s design is a part of our worship to Him. Holiness includes becoming more and more like Jesus every day. As you move toward Jesus in your heart and life, you will pray for the salvation for those above you, beside you, close to you, far from you, the ones you love and those who are not so lovely toward you.
TODAY’S PRAYER FOR GOD’S PEOPLE
Father, I thank you that those who shared Christ with me were proactive. I thank you that they came looking for me to share the Gospel so that I might be saved. I pray that I (we) will be “on the go”, with the Good News that Jesus Saves.
TODAY’S PRAYER FOR THE PEOPLE ON YOUR LIST
God, as your people go with the Gospel, go before us. Open the hearts of each lost one. Please, give them ears to hear your message of salvation. Draw them to You.
