21 DAYS OF PRAYER

A COMPANION TO THE "A BETTER STORY" MESSAGE SERIES

DAY FOUR

PRAY FOR PEOPLE YOU LOVE

“Brothers and sisters, the thing I want most is for all the Jews to be saved. That is my prayer to God.” (Romans 10:1, NCV)
The Apostle Paul had a deep love for his Jewish brothers and sisters. In the chapter before he wrote  the above lines, he said this: “I wish I could help my Jewish brothers and sisters, my people. I would even wish that I were cursed and cut off from Christ if that would help them” (Romans 9:3 NCV).

Who are the people you love the most—people you’d desperately want to see reconciled with God?

PRAYER

Lord, help me to love you more than anything else. May the love I have for people grow to reflect the love you have for them. Help me to take up my cross daily to follow Jesus. I pray for the hearts and lives of the ones I love the most. It’s no good if they gain the whole world yet forfeit their souls. Do whatever it takes to reach them, Lord. May I be your willing servant.
