We all have those people in our lives that we’ve felt at times are lost causes. Friends, family members, co-workers that are completly anti-God or have strayed so far that we feel there’s just no hope for them.
We might not ever say this out loud but our actions speak louder than words: we’ve stopped praying for them.
Why? Because it feels like our prayers aren’t producing any fruit.
Let me encourage you with these words from Paul:
Don’t give up praying for those friends and family members that have rejected God or have wandered away from the faith! Pray for a day of harvest for your prayers.
Take some time remembering those friends or family members that need their hearts drawn to Jesus. While you may have prayed for them countless times, pray like it’s the first time. Pray like you’d want someone to pray for you. To quote the beloved author, Max Lucado, “He still moves stones.”
I’m praying with you.
