Power of Prayer (Praying for the Lost)

September 19, 2010


For many days now I have been seeking God’s Wisdom and council as to why many will not find eternal Life through Jesus.. Why so will never come to believe and is this really God’s will..

While meditating upon these question the Lord had me open His Word up to several places..And this is what came to my heart.


Our Lord does not want any to parish.. As 2 Peter 3 states.. “The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance”

Now our in Lord’s perfect will He is not willing that any should perish. But Why do some not believe.. Jesus answered this in John 6 when many that followed Jesus and saw the miracles which He preformed but yet did not believe in Him and left Him

“And He said, “Therefore I have said to you that no one can come to Me unless it has been granted to him by My Father.”

Wow these are powerful words.. It is the The Father that grants one to come to Jesus and It is Jesus that brings one to the Father..

John 14 “Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”

So we see that only those that have been granted by the Father will be able to come to Jesus.. Now as I meditated in the Presences of the Lord and seek His Wisdom in this matter this came to my heart

Many of us are witnessing and praying amidst. We believe that anyone can come to Jesus yet Jesus Himself say Only those who The Father grants will come to Him.. Does that mean all hope is lost for rest. Of course not.. This is where the Power of prayer comes in..

Now we see that no one can come to Jesus unless The Father grants it.. And no one can come to the Father without Jesus..

To many this may sound complicated but nothing is complicated or impossible with our Lord and it is in His simplicity we can understand His Love..

As His Children this is where our Prayers are very important. With the Love of Christ in our Hearts and praying in Spirit we are to make petitions to the Father on their behalf in Jesus name. We must ask that He grant that they can come to Jesus and Know the Love we know.. That He will open the eyes to their hearts and see the Love He has to offer through His Son Our Lord and Saviour Jesus. That He remove all stone, rocks or pebbles that may hinder their acknowledgement of Jesus as their saviour..

 Lastly let us remember that we are sowers of the Word and it our Love for The Lord that waters and fertilizes these seeds.. It is the Holy Spirit’s Job till, remove the rocks and to convict ones heart. Jesus is the only Way one will come to the Father but the only way to Jesus is if the Father grants it. So let us continue to pray for the Lost but let us bring them before the Father and request that they are granted to Come to Jesus as we were/are.

Now I know there will always be those who’s hearts are so harden by the evil one and controlled by his hand that they may never be able to come to Jesus because of their love for evil but I also know that there is power in Prayer…  And All things are possible with God..

  I hope this makes sense it is hard to place what is upon my heart…
