Romans 9:1-3: I am speaking the truth in Christ—I am not lying; my conscience bears me witness in the Holy Spirit— that I have great sorrow and unceasing anguish in my heart. For I could wish that I myself were accursed and cut off from Christ for the sake of my brothers, my kinsmen according to the flesh.

Father, I pray with sorrow and unceasing anguish in my heart for         (Name)         to know Jesus. Save, O God! And where my heart is indifferent, break it and make it like your own. 

Romans 10:1 Brothers, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for them is that they may be saved.

Father, my heart’s desire and prayer is that        (Name)         may be saved.

2 Corinthians 4:3-4 And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing. In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God… For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

Father,         (Name)       ‘s mind is blind to seeing the light of the gospel. Give sight! Even as you called forth light and it appeared, not only in Creation, but in my own salvation, causing my darkened mind to know the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ, do it for           (Name)         

1 Timothy 2:1,3-4 First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people…This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.

Father, your desire and my prayer is that          (Name)         be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth. I know this is pleasing in your sight. 

Ephesians 6:18b-20 making supplication for all the saints, and also for me, that words may be given to me in opening my mouth boldly to proclaim the mystery of the gospel, for which Iam an ambassador in chains, that I may declare it boldly, as I ought to speak.

Father, give to me and all the saints at Seven Mile Road, opportunities to proclaim the gospel. When we open our mouths, give us the words to say and let us declare it boldly as we ought to speak.
