Connecting the Dots in an Unconnected World

Pray for a Lost Soul

For whom are you praying? Possibly for a friend’s personal need. Possibly for a loved one’s physical need. Possibly for your own personal need. While these are worthy objects of your prayer life allow me to propose a better way.

Take time each day in you prayer time to pray for the soul of a lost friend, neighbor, family member, or co-worker. The greatest need in any individual’s life is to know Jesus and His free pardon from sin. To pray for the temporal need and ignore the eternal need is to place value in the wrong place. While we must not ignore the temporal needs of others, somehow in the grace of God, we must prioritize the eternal need of forgiveness, a personal relationship with Jesus, and a home in heaven.

Think of someone you know that needs Jesus and call their name before the heavenly throne. It will make an eternal difference.

Attempting to connect the dots…

Romans 1:16

“The average Christian sends more time praying people out of heaven than they spend praying people into heaven.”
~ Leon Kilbreth
