Prayer For The Non Believer

Loving Lord and Heavenly Father, it is with deep sadness that I come to Your throne of grace today, to find strength and grace to help in this of deepest need. Father, the precious daughter that You saw fit to add to our family is moving further away from You and I am grieved that she does not know the Lord Jesus as her personal Saviour and Lord, and seems to have dismissed all that we taught her in her early years.

Look down on our dear daughter in pity and mercy I pray, and draw her back to Yourself with cords of love and grace. Convict her of her foolish choices she is making and convince her of her need to return into Your arms of loving forgiveness.

Bring into her life godly friends and wise councillors and remove any rebellious leanings she has towards the things of God. Give me the right words to say when appropriate and endow me with the wisdom to keep silent at other times, and in Your grace bring her into a saving knowledge of Jesus and renew a right spirit within her I pray. In Jesus' name,


Father, I thank You for my son and the joy that he has brought into our lives, but Lord my heart aches for him to come to faith in Jesus, and I pray that You would bring my precious, unbelieving son to a saving faith in Christ.

Thank You, that You loved the world so much that You sent Your own, dearly beloved Son to be the propitiation for our sins and for the sins of the whole world. Thank You, that whosoever believes in Christ Jesus will not perish but have everlasting life.

I pray that eyes of my dearly beloved, yet unbelieving son, would be opened to the truth of the glorious gospel of grace and that He would turn from his sin to Christ and be born into Your eternal family of God. Into Your hands I entrust my son whom I so desire to be saved, and pray that in Your mercy You would guide him into all truth. In Jesus' name,


Dear Father God, we pray for the salvation of men and women throughout our world that have not come to a saving faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Lord, we know that it is not Your will that any one should perish but that all should come to faith in the Lord Jesus as their Saviour.

Father, we lift the lost to You and pray that in Your long-suffering mercy, You would draw close to each and every one. We pray that the light of Your love would shine into their hearts, and that the truth of Your Word would convict their inner soul of their need of a Saviour.

Thank You for sending Christ Jesus into the world to be born into the human race and live among us. Thank You, that He was willing to die on the cross for sinners, to give His life as a ransom for many, so as to provide salvation for all who would believe in Him as Saviour.

We plead Your gracious mercy on all unbelievers today and ask that You would snatch them from the jaws of evil and bring them to saving faith in Christ. This we ask in His precious name,


Loving Father, I lift up my unbelieving husband to You and pray that You would honour my desperate pleading for his salvation, and help him I pray, to realise his need to accept Jesus as his Saviour and commit his life to You.

I pray that Your Holy Spirit would convict him of his sin and the eternal consequences that he faces outside of Christ. I pray that he may come to a saving faith in Jesus and that You would fulfil the plan and purpose that You have for his life. Open his eyes I pray, and bring him into a living, vital and intimate relationship with Jesus.

I pray that You would give me the grace and wisdom to live a godly life that honours You and teach me to be the sort of wife that will cause my husband to be intrigued to know You, Whom to know is life eternal.

Father, I entrust his life into Your hand and pray that You would honour this heart-plea. In Jesus' name I pray,


God, I know that it is Your deepest wish to have all people have faith in You. It must break your heart in seeing someone choose false gods. I pray that You continue to be patient and merciful on those who have not yet found You. As it is said in 2 Peter 3:9, The Lord is not slow in keeping His promise, as some understand slowness. Instead He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to parish but everyone to come to repentance. How blessed are we to have a God that will wait for us to turn our hearts to Him! We are blessed by a merciful and loving God that receives no joy in watching someone perish without knowing His love. Amen.

Lord Almighty, as I pray today for those that do not know Jesus I ask that You can break whatever it is that has control over their heart that takes them away from knowing You. Psalm 119:67 says, Before I was afflicted I went astray, but now I obey your word. It is true that many have to fall to their lowest points in life before they turn their life over to You. It often takes painful circumstances to drive us to Christ. Addiction, lust, materialism, and other deadly sins are false gods that are stealing the hearts of those who need You the most. I pray for those who are unsaved that You will be able to rip the bondage of what is holding them back. May they seek You! Amen.

Lord, I know it is my duty to spread the Word of God and show others the glory that can be found within You. Many people come to faith after seeing Christ's loved displayed through the ministry of Christians. So today, I pray for opportunities to minister to unbelievers. Help me to spread Your ministry effectively to those who do not know you. I pray that You work through other Christians, so that they have the ability to minister to nonbelievers too. Lead us all to opportunities to encounter those who do not know Jesus. Let us all be an example of Christian living. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven

My Heavenly Father, in John 17:3, Jesus says, Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent. Jesus was praying that people come to know You, our only means to eternal salvation. Today I choose to pray as Jesus did and ask that You help those who have yet to give their lives to Christ. May Your love and power reveal themselves to the nonbelievers, so that they will someday know You! Amen.
