Unbelievers to Come to Repentance

As Christians, we are commissioned to preach to unbelievers and bring them to the kingdom. This work of preaching may not produce much fruit if we do not pray for them especially for them to come into the salvation plan Jesus has for all. It is with the prayer that we settle everything first whether or not we are the one witness to these unbelievers.

According to 1 Timothy 2:4, God desires that all men be saved and come to know the truth. This is why He sent in His son as explained in John 3:16 and in Matthew 28:18-20, Jesus gave us the mandate to preach the Gospel to everyone. To fulfill the scripture in Acts 13:47-49, we must preach and pray for the salvation of the unbelievers. Below are the prayers to pray for unbelievers to repent. 

  1. The Bible says for this reason the son of man is made manifest to destroy the work of the devil. Therefore, every satanic work used to keep these unbelievers in darkness be destroyed in the name of Jesus. For Jesus manifested in death and life to bring victory over all the works of the devil. All devilish works are brought to an end in the name of Jesus. Let all weapons, incantations, divination, etc put in place to keep people out of salvation be made of no effect in the name of Jesus. 
  2. Father, we pray that you visit the unbelievers for them to realize their ungodly parts and actions in the name of Jesus. By your mercies, let the sinners be found and drawn to you in the name of Jesus. Lord, let mercy find every sinner in the most convincing way that will bring them to repentance in the name of Jesus. Let them find you in their dreams, actions, wills, etc. in the name of Jesus. Whatever they do whether in secret or in the open, let them find salvation in the name of Jesus.
  3. Father, your word says you gave your only begotten son for the world that whosoever believes in Him can have everlasting life. Please don’t let the sacrifice of Jesus waste over these ones in the name of Jesus. Remember oh Lord, the pain on the cross, the crown of thorns, the beatings, etc, let these sinners be reconciled in the name of Jesus. Please reach out to them in any way until they come to the sacrifice of Jesus so that they can have the life that you intend for them in Jesus’ name. 
  4. Father, I ask that you orchestrate an experience that will draw these unbelievers to you and surrender to Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior in the name of Jesus. Lord, you did it for Saul, Cornelius, and those in Macedonia, I am convinced that you can do it for these unbelievers too. Let situations and things happen that will draw them to you in the name of Jesus. If pain will bring them to you, please give them pain. By all means, let them come into salvation in the name of Jesus. 
  5. Lord, I pray that everything that makes sin valuable to these unbelievers become worthless to them in the name of Jesus. Please let the life of sin that they lead before become irritating to them so that they may seek the true life that you have for them. Give them a true hunger to know you and plant your men in their paths that they may be led to you in the name of Jesus. 
  6. Father, I pray over the darkness that has plunged their hearts preventing them from seeing the light of salvation in Jesus’ name. Just as God declared light at the beginning of creation, I declare light into their lives in the name of Jesus. I ask that the light of God that fell on Sail on his way to Damascus fall on them in the name of Jesus. Let the light of salvation shine on them in the name of Jesus. 
  7. The Bible says our Gospel can only be hidden to those that the god of this world has blinded their minds (2 Corinthians 4:3-4), therefore I pray that the minds of these unbelievers be open to the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. Whatever is in their minds preventing the Gospel be cursed and brought to naught for the Gospel in the name of Jesus. Lord, let the operations of the gods of this world on the minds of unbelievers come to an end in the name of Jesus.  
  8. The Bible says we wrestle not against flesh and blood but against principalities and powers, therefore we come against all principalities and powers keeping their souls bound in darkness in the name of Jesus. Let the operations of the powers and principalities over territories that keep people in darkness come to an end in the name of Jesus. Lord, take over all territories and let your power take over in the name of Jesus. 
  9. Father, I pray that every sinner be found irrespective of where they may be hiding to perpetuate their sins or evil in the name of Jesus. Let the power of God hit them for repentance and salvation even in the hideouts in the name of Jesus. That even in the dark tunnels where they think no one can see them, let the power of God locate them and bring them into repentance in the name of Jesus.
  10. Father, I pray that you send every unbeliever help from the power of sin that has held them bound in the name of Jesus. That help is your compelling power that convicts sin in their heart and then bring them into salvation in the name of Jesus. That help is also by sending an evangelist to individual unbelievers just as you sent Peter to Cornelius. Please send a personal messenger to these unbelievers so that they may see your undying love for them and repent in the name of Jesus.
