We, as God's creation in His image, were the joy set before Jesus as He faced the cross -- Hebrews 12:2. Jesus gave Himself up for us as a loving bridegroom should give himself up for his bride-- Ephesians 5:25-26. As I thought about all the people I pray for to come to a saving knowledge of Jesus, I thought of how much fun for all of us to be at the wedding banquet described in Revelation 19:6-8. Here are the prayers I have collected that I pray in hopes that one day we will all be with Jesus.
PRAYERS FOR CONVERSION TO CHRISTIANITY
Soften their hearts
Remove Satan’s blinding influence
Called to repent and become God’s child for all eternity
Break them Lord until they are wholly Yours.
They would feed on Jesus.
Prepare their hearts to hear the gospel.
Bring them out of Adam into Jesus Christ.
They would no longer be slaves of sin but slaves of righteousness.
Remove their hearts of stone and replace them with hearts of flesh.
Call them and let nobody or anything hinder them from coming.
Change their hearts and open their minds to the gospel.
Stir their hearts.
Cause them to come into the light.
That they would live by the truth.
Open their eyes and turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to the power of God.
Draw them to Jesus.
Run to the rock that is higher than they are.
Cause them to become defenders of the gospel.
Cause them to love The Word
Cause them to walk steadfastly before the Lord their God.
Wash evil from their hearts.
God would break through their pride and open their hearts to God’s truth.
Remove the idols in their hearts and replace them with Jesus.
Leave their life of sin.
Love the truth
Rich toward God
Turn the hearts of the disobedient to the wisdom of the righteous to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.
Come to a saving knowledge of Jesus
Hunger and thirst after righteousness
Radically change the trajectory of their lives.
Put on the armor of light.
Clothe themselves with the Lord Jesus Christ
Open the eyes of their understanding so that they might behold the glorious good news of the gospel and be saved.
I Corinthians 13: For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known.
