Question of the Week: Why do we pray for people to get saved?
The question as to why we pray for anything at all includes this very topic. When scripture encourages us to bring our requests to God, Philippians 4:6-7, it doesn’t do so with the goal of accomplishing our will. The goal is the peace of God. We see this demonstrated first-hand when Jesus showed us what a perfect relationship with the Father looked like. And even then, He didn’t pray for His will to be done. He brought His request to the Father, but ultimately submitted to His plan as the better option. Matthew 26:39. So why do we pray for anything? Not to change the mind or coerce God into giving us what we want, but with Jesus as our example, we use it to align our desires with God’s. Are you praying that your loved one accepts Jesus? You’re sharing God’s heart towards them because He wants them to get saved too!
