ave you ever been really lost when driving

through unfamiliar territory? That feeling of anxiety
that hits you in your gut is telling you that something is
seriously wrong. Your natural reaction is to get back on
the right track ASAP. This is how we all should feel
about those we know that are spiritually lost too. They
are on the wrong path that leads to eternal torment
and suffering. Jesus describes these paths in Matthew
7:13-14, “Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is
wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and
those who enter it are many. For the gate is narrow
and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who
find it are few.”
This is serious! We can’t allow one
day to slip by without praying for those that are lost.
We aren’t promised tomorrow and prayer is very
powerful. Let us all agree together that praying for the
lost is something that we should be doing daily.

Here are 5 prayers that you can pray for
anyone who is lost spiritually.

and destroy and that is why I am torn. Joe is my friend
