When we first moved to Cambridge God put the desire on my heart to bring a salvation prayer book to the church. After lots of prayer and waiting for Gods timing of when he wanted me to introduce it to the church. The time came but not lightly, a lot of attacks from the enemy both physically and emotionally. Even on the day we got a phone call from someone from the church saying salvation is a strong word maybe use prayer requests. Which didnt settle right but it convinced my husband so i submitted. Biggest mistake. Under no circumstances am i saying submitting to your husbands is a big mistake. But when they go against God, god must come first. So as the service went forth the book got introduced as a prayer request book. As time went by i noticed people were not writing init. Eventually someone or some people didnt but barely 1 page was full. The rest of the book empty. I wasn't sure if i was being ungrateful but i complained a few times in prayer and just randomly to God and said "why isn't this working" or "why hasn't this been blessed and people filling this book up, is everyone's life perfect" complaints such as that. Eventually God responded with "I told you to make it a salvation prayer book and you didnt".. Talk about a slap in thr face from God right. Conviction alert is what that was. Immediately i apologised and went straight to my husband and told him "I have to make it a salvation prayer book" to which he agreed and went straight to it and ripped off the prayer request label. Oh i forgot to mention underneath the prayer request label was the correct label salvation. Him doing that stirred up excitement. I also mentioned it to the victor and during one if the services my husband runs it will be introduced the way God wanted it.
Why have i spoke about that to you? Well because i want to attempt to get across the urgency of the salvation of those around you and I. Like the image above says it is not God's will that anyone should perish but repent. God loves each and everyone of us. Though he knows all and sees all, he is fond of seeing the world through our eyes. Sadly far to many people don't have a relationship with him. And even worse far to many people die without that relationship with him. This world is under serious spiritual war fare and its down to us to pray like we've never prayed before for those around us. Even our enemies. Because it doesn't matter how much we may not like someone we can not truly say we would love to see when burn in hell. I know i wouldn't wish that in anyone. Can God not handle it on his own? Yes of course. But the bible talks about the holy spirit leading us in what to pray, and if its important to God it sure should be important to us. In these times in modern day society it's never impossible for a revival. Its never impossible for a miraculous revealing of christ in someones life. Its never impossible for our none believers to be healed. If God can save us he can save them. If God can save the murderer on the cross before death he can save anyone. Its not too late. It's not too impossible. It is God's will that everyone is saved and none should perish.. Jesus came for the sick and not the healthy. People already saved don't need a doctor, but there are people that need christ.
Father fogive us for when we become lazy in our prayer requests for the salvation of those around us. I admit lord I havent urgently prayed for their lives. Father i thank you for the person reading this. Lord stir in us the hunger and urgency that you have for the lives of those that don't know you and even those that do but either purposely reject or aren't sure what they want. Reveal yourself to these people. Lord use us as vessels in your will to bring a piece of you into the lives of those around us. Whether that be through praying, testimony, helping them, support them, sharing etc. Thank you for saving me. May my life be a beautiful fragrance to your nose ever pleasing to you. In jesus name. Amen.
