“Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved” (Romans 10:1).Text — Romans 10:1-4
Biblically, ignorance simply indicates the lack of knowledge of God. A story was told of a group of drunken friends who went to pick up another friend. The mother of the friend they went to pick up accompanied her to the car. Noticing the drunken state of her friends, she said to the daughter, “go with God and may He protect you.” The daughter responded, “Only if He (God) travels in the trunk because inside here is full.” Hours later, the mother received news of their involvement in a fatal accident- they all died. To the amazement of the police, the car was completely wrecked except for the trunk which was intact. More surprising was the fact that the crate of eggs in the trunk was not affected.
Friend, this should motivate us to affectionately pray for the lost so that they may repent and be saved. Our schools and communities are teeming with lost youths who need our prayers for their salvation. Many of them live recklessly due to their ignorance of Christ. Remember, Paul was once a zealous religious sinner until Christ’s intervention. Pray for someone’s salvation today.
Affectionately pray for the lost
When last did you pray for lost souls?
Prayer for today
Dear Lord, save all the ignorant souls around me.
