A Prayer for the Lost
“The Holy Spirit wants to share His strength, power, wisdom and information with us. He is desirous of participating with us in life’s endeavors. He certainly wants to participate with us in our prayer lives... The Amplified Bible uses no less than seven terms to describe or translate the concept of the Holy Spirit, our paraclete: 'Comforter, Counselor, Helper, Advocate, Intercessor, Strengthener, Standby.' The point is simple yet broad. The Holy Spirit has been sent to help us in every aspect of our life and ministry. He is the key to success!” Dutch Sheets
The harvest is ripe! Multitudes throughout the world are opening their hearts to God. We have the wonderful privilege and responsibility in these end times to pray in the harvest. This is a kairos moment (an opportune time, a moment of indeterminate time in which everything happens). Let us not miss this tremendous opportunity to partner with the Holy Spirit at harvest time.
As you pray for the lost, keep in mind that you have a supernatural prayer partner who is helping you. You are never alone when you pray. Many of you have been praying for years regarding lost family members. My husband and I have personally seen several come to Christ through prayer, but it sometimes took years. God worked in some very hard cases as we watched the Holy Spirit remove spiritual blindness one by one.
The lost cannot be reached without the dynamic working of the Holy Spirit in a life. We cannot pray without the help of the Holy Spirit, because He helps us to hit the mark as we intercede for the lost!
My Prayer to Partner with the Holy Spirit in Prayer for the Lost
Lord, I pray that You would teach me to yield myself to Your Spirit. Holy Spirit, teach me to trust You as a living person who leads my life and my prayers. Help me to understand Your ministry and power. Help me to understand You as my Comforter, Counselor, Helper, Advocate, Intercessor, and Strengthener. I long to see a demonstration of Your power in my life just as the Apostle Paul did (1 Corinthians 2:2-5). I thank you that You indwell, seal, sanctify, and empower me. You guide me, teach me, and pray through me. Help me to partner with You in everything I do. Transform my life completely with Your power. Make me sensitive to Your promptings, and teach me to partner with You in prayer in a deeper way.
I thank you that the darkness vanishes as I pray for the lost. Thank you for convicting the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment. I pray that you will soften the hearts of [Name those who do not know Christ]. Remove the spiritual blindness from their eyes, and help them to understand the truth about You. Bring them to repentance and salvation (Acts 3:19). Help me to be Your light in their lives. Help me to let my light shine before men, that they may see my good deeds and glorify my Father in heaven (Mathew 5:16). Show me how to be Your witness and how to show acts of love to them. I believe that You are working in their lives even as I pray. In Jesus’ name, amen.
This is a 5-minute prayer and teaching that will help you to partner with the Holy Spirit as you pray for those who do not know Christ. It is called: My Prayer to Partner with the Holy Spirit in Prayer for the Lost.
