Are your spouse, children or extended family not saved? Keeping them before the Lord is the best place for your heart to be. Leave your worries with Him and love them like He loves us. When you tend to worry about them, lift them up in prayer before the One who knows. Ask, seek, knock! Ask Him for their salvation, seek ways to love on them and keep knocking at God’s door for them. He loves them more than you do. Praying with you!
Father, open ______’s eyes so that they may turn from the dominion of Satan to You, God, in order that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who have been sanctified by faith in You. Lord, You are not slow about Your promise, as some count slowness, but You are patient toward them, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance. Lord, grant them a spirit of repentance that leads to salvation, because it is Your kindness that leads to repentance. (Acts 26:18 Romans 2:4b II Peter 3:9)
Lord, as Your bond servant, help me not to be quarrelsome, to be kind to all, able to teach, patient when wronged, and with gentleness correcting those who are in opposition to You, if perhaps You, may grant ________ repentance leading to the knowledge of Your truth and that _______ may come to their senses and escape from the snare of the devil, having been held captive by him to do his will. (IITimothy 2:24-26)
