Begin your time with God in prayer.
Praise God for who He is. Confess any sin so that nothing blocks your fellowship with Him. Ask God to use the Spirit and the Word to transform your life.
Let God’s Word penetrate your head and your heart.
"First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way. This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth." 1 Timothy 2:1-4
"No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him. And I will raise him up on the last day." John 6:44
John 6:44 changed my prayer life. Today, when I pray for those who need a relationship with Jesus, I ask the Father to draw them to His Son, Jesus. It’s simple and it’s powerful.
Apply God’s Word to your life.
· Take out your “Pray for 10” list. Ask God to draw each one to Jesus.
Father, I am so grateful that You desire all people to be saved. Help me to develop my prayer life so that I pray more. Help me to show them Your love wherever I am. Draw them to Your Son so they can be saved. Amen.
