I have a page on my prayer list of loved ones, friends, and family that no longer attend church or follow Jesus Christ. Over this list I pray:
- John 19:19, “…seek and save the lost…”
- 2 Peter 3:9, “…none to be lost…”
- Acts 10:31, “…believe, are saved and his whole household was saved.”
- Proverbs 22:6, “Train up a child in the way they should go and when they are old they will not depart from it.”
Today I found another verse to pray over this list.
Jeremiah 50:6, “My people have been lost sheep. Their shepherds have led them astray and turned them loose in the mountains. They have lost their way and can’t remember how to get back to the shepherd.” New Living Translation
Many lost their way because someone they trusted and respected betrayed them. Their hurt caused them to turn from God and they can’t find their way back.
Dear Father God,
Help those I love to remember the way back to You.
In Jesus Name,
