Do you know that saying a prayer for lost souls can redeem them today? First of all, who is a lost soul? If you are not born again, you might not understand the phrase lost soul. Basically, a lost soul is someone without direction. Biblically, a lost soul is someone that is not saved and Jesus refers to those who did not believe in him and receive the message of salvation as lost souls.
Before I got born again, I was adamant about the gospel of Jesus Christ. Many times, my late mum would tell me to give my life to Christ and repent from my worldly ways. I never listened nor did I care. I was a chained smoker and a drunkard, I thought I was enjoying life not knowing that I was lost in the world. She never stopped praying for me, she was never tired and I can tell you that her prayer worked even though it was after her death.
My transformation surprised many, especially those we used to drink together. Gradually, I lost interest in drinking and smoking, I was no longer a freak for worldly things, my perception about life changed and I began to develop an interest in the things of God. I was lost but the mercy of God and prayer found me.
This happens everywhere, the devil has come to destroy and to steal, he also steals souls from God’s kingdom, especially, those that are strong vessels for God. Your prayer for lost brothers, sisters, parents, church members and backsliders around the world can bring them back to Christ. It does not matter if you know them or not. Although it is better to start from your environment, there are many people that need you and me to show them the way of Christ.
Besides, we are saved to win souls for Christ. You don’t have to be a preacher or an evangelist before you can pray for a Lost soul. You can pray for them in your closet without them knowing and your prayer will have an impact on them just like my mum’s prayers did.
In this article, we’ll deeply explore prayers for lost souls and how to pray for lost souls. Whether you are a man of God or an individual, these prayers for soul-winning will help you to harvest more souls for Christ.
Prayer For Lost Souls – Why?
Interceding for lost souls is the priority of every Christian. As a believer, you are saved to save others for Christ. Your salvation is not for your gain but for heavenly glory. There are many people out there that are yet to know about Christ, and our duty is to preach the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ through prayers and the word of God.
When you pray for lost souls, the Lord will give them a new heart, a new spirit, and remove the heart of stone from their flesh and give them a heart of flesh Ezekiel 3:26.
The book of 2 Corinthians 4:4 says Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe. They are unable to see the glorious light of the Good News. They don’t understand this message about the glory of Christ, who is the exact likeness of God.
This means Satan does not want unbelievers to see the light and good news. He has hardened their hearts, blind their eyes to know Jesus Christ as the way of salvation. Interceding on their behalf, with the help of the Holy Spirit, will unblock their heart and see Jesus as the Light and salvation.
Whether you are a Man of God or a believer, you are called to preach the gospel and pray for lost souls. Jesus Christ prayed earnestly in his day, even the Apostles in the early church did not only preach the word of God but also pray for the salvation of their soul.
Another reason why you need to pray for lost souls is that many are attending church but they are not true worshipers. They are religious but not saved, and only those that worship God in truth and in spirit, are the real worshipers. As a pastor, you need to pray for lost souls all the time if you want Church growth.
