Prayer 2021 - November 9 - Praying for Unsaved Loved Ones pt 2

Scripture For Today:

 1 Timothy 4:5

“Because it is consecrated by the Word of God and Prayer…”

Praying for Unsaved Loved Ones pt 2

Yesterday, we started to discuss the topic of praying for our loved ones. I shared that, especially if the loved ones are under your care, kids, grandkids or parents, etc., YOU have spiritual authority to actually claim their salvation.

That does not mean YOU make the decision for salvation FOR them. It means you can take authority in the spirit and fend off evil influences and loose angelic forces to continuously bring other believers across the path of your loved ones and witness to them.  This does not apply to children too young to know what a decision of salvation means. Of course, they are covered by the blood to the age of majority, which simply means they understand what salvation is all about and are capable of making or rejecting Christ.

If they appear to reject Christ’s offer of salvation, this is where YOUR spiritual authority can take over. You must start to confess their salvation and then hold onto your confession. Despite what your loved one says, does or implies – YOU cannot let of your prayer and confession for them.

The devil will come at you, for sure, claiming “your prayer wasn’t answered” and all of that. He will replay all the bad stuff they are doing.

Like I said, you need to pray Matthew 9:38 over them and ask the Holy Spirit to direct laborers across their paths. I know when I was praying like this for my family, according to God’s Word, which we already study IS HIS WORD, I would pray in BOLDNESS and confidence before God.

When the devil would come at me that they might not EVER be saved – I would simply laugh – out loud and remind the devil that HE is a liar and the father of lies…which means if he says they are not saved then that is a lie. So the opposite MUST BE TRUE – They ARE Saved, in the name of Jesus! 

Then I would start praising God for answering my prayer of salvation for them and allowing the devil to come and confirm it by trying to tell me a lie that they were not saved – because there is no truth in anything the devil has to say! Praise God!

Somebody just got a revelation right there! Amen!

That goes back to what we were studying in 1 John 5:14-15… “and this is the confidence that we have in HIM, that if we ask anything according to His will, he hears us… and if we KNOW He has heard us, whatsoever we ask, we KNOW that WE HAVE the petition we have desired of Him.”

Then add in the TRUTH of God’s Word concerning salvation, which we all know John 3:16, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”  And add in 2 Peter 3:9 that “The Lord is not willing that ANY should perish, but that ALL should come to everlasting life.” 

So we can rest in the TRUTH of God’s Word, including the TRUTH that “the devil is a liar and the father thereof and there is NO truth in him.”  

So, if the devil tells you one thing – the opposite is true. And if God’s Word says something – it is ABSOLUTELY TRUE. 

Did you get anything out of this today?

Don’t negate your prayers just because the devil tries to tell you they did not work!  In fact, the opposite is true – they DID work, you just have not seen the results in the natural yet. But, since you now know your prayers have been answered – START PRAISING GOD!

And drive the devil nuts!  Amen!

Bob Thibodeau

Pastor Robert Thibodeau has been in online ministry since starting his own podcast in mid-2009. Within about six months, he was offered a slot on nationwide Christian AM radio. His broadcast was heard in four major markets for one year.

He then started what today is called, "Evangelism Radio" and went live 24/7 beginning on October 4, 2010 and continues to this day. Now with over 50 broadcasters submitting programming on a weekly basis, Evangelism Radio has listeners in over 160 nations and all 50 states. It was also ranked by Shoutcast.com as #1 in the world in the Christian Talk genre on many occasions.

In late 2017, Pastor Bob began an interview style podcast called "The Kingdom Cross Roads Podcast." On this podcast, Pastor Bob interviews Christians from various walks of life on how they use their Faith to achieve success. Authors, recording artists, business CEO's, non-profit leaders and pastors and ministers frequent the show and provide amazing insight to build your faith. In only 3 years time, The KCR Podcast has published almost 900 episodes and Pastor Bob conducted over 700 interviews!

In early 2018, in response to the lack of any Christian themed podcast hosting platform in the market place, Pastor Bob coordinated with the iconic Mark Asquith and his team, with the result being "FaithCasters.net." A "Christian podcast hosting and marketing company created by Christians for Christians."

Due to the immense success Pastor Bob has achieved in the online ministry world, he is often asked by others "How to start a podcast." Not wanting to refer Christian brothers and sisters back into the world for help in establishing a Christian themed podcast, he started to develop the "Podcast-Training" platform offered through our ministry. He conducts training on a weekly basis to assist others in the development of their own personal podcast as well as ministry related podcasts that can air on Evangelism Radio.

Now, he has placed all of this information under one website location, "Podcasters for Christ." This makes it easier for other Christians to find the services they need in one spot rather than having to visit several different websites.
