Update: Prayer for the Unsaved and Backsliders

This post is an update to my post, Prayer for the Unsaved and Backsliders. These are the changes:

  • These verses were added to the prayer and references.
    Acts 26:15-18 ESV (Open their eyes to receive forgiveness),
    Mark 11:24 ESV (Pray believing to receive),
    Matthew 18:18-20 ESV (Binding / loosing; prayer of agreement),
    Ephesians 1:18 NIV (Imagination: eyes of the heart enlightened), and
    2 Corinthians 10:5 KJV (No vain imaginations).
  • The prayer should most often be used by two or more people, praying for two or more people. (I believe you can pray the prayer of agreement even if you are on different parts of the earth, praying at different times.) Therefore I made an easier-to-read, plurals-only copy of the prayer. It is much easier to read.
  • For easier printing and viewing, the simpler prayer is a PDF download.

Original Prayer With Additions

This salvation prayer is written to be used by one or more people, praying for the salvation of one or more people. At first, the “(he / she / they)” and “(was / were)” constructs may be awkward, but hang in there! After praying the prayer a few times you will be able to glance at the next sentence or two, close your eyes, and pray with all your might. The exact words aren’t that important, go with the Word and your inner witness.

I expect this prayer become a “template” for me, as the Lord’s Prayer is a template. I will pray some sentences over and over and over, using God’s Word like a hammer. I will be reminded of other applicable verses and use them too.

But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved— and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.

And when the sun rose, it was scorched, and since it had no root, it withered away. Other seed fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up and choked it, and it yielded no grain.

And they have no root in themselves, but endure for a while; then, when tribulation or persecution arises on account of the word, immediately they fall away. And others are the ones sown among thorns. They are those who hear the word, but the cares of the world and the deceitfulness of riches and the desires for other things enter in and choke the word, and it proves unfruitful.

Einstein and the Rapture

I was given an excellent imagination by God, and I’m starting to think it is one of the greatest gifts He has given me. Despite no evidence whatsoever that my five sense could discern, I could imagine that there was a God, that He loved me, and that He provided a way through Jesus that I could be with Him forever. Imagination came first.

Imagination –> Belief –> Faith –> Salvation –> Assurance

Oh, how well I can image this!

For the Lord himself will come down from heaven with a commanding shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet call of God. First, the believers who have died will rise from their graves. Then, together with them, we who are still alive and remain on the earth will be caught up in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. Then we will be with the Lord forever.
1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 NLT

Albert Einstein said, “Imagination is more important than knowledge.” This is especially true when what is thought to be knowledge is in fact, error. Ignorance is not bliss. Ignorance is destruction.

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge;
Hosea 4:6a ESV

Imagination was the first step in all these items in my post I Believe. I had to imagine that they could be true before I could believe they were true. (Pasted here. It is short.)


I believe in the virgin birth, walking on water, axe heads that float, fire from heaven falling on people and sacrifices, earthly translation (twice), translation to heaven, mankind created in God’s image, angels, undeserved salvation, eternal life, and eternal death.

Therefore I have no problem believing that the God who loves me provided clues in His Word so that the day should not surprise me like a thief. I believe I am accounted worthy to escape those things that shall come on the earth!

(Hat tip: L.A. Marzulli)


I have been thinking about my “witnessing fails.” I am wondering if some of those people have IDD – Imagination Deficiency Disorder. 😉 It seems to me some of them are deluded by this Imagination Deficiency: THEY CANNOT IMAGINE THAT THEY AND THEIR GROUP OF LIKE-MINDED PEERS ARE WRONG! They are like a group of people in a small boat, without an engine, oars or sail, about to go over a huge waterfall to death and destruction, shouting over the thunderous noise to each other, “We are okay! This many of us cannot be wrong!”

The Bible likens human beings to sheep. Like sheep, we have the predisposition to act like the rest of the herd. We can take great comfort in being in the middle of the herd in terms of thought, behavior and appearance, yet never consider that the herd might be wrong. For more, read The Cattle of His Pasture. Imagination is needed to be able to start thinking that the herd could be wrong!

Even more than before, my prayers for them will include prayers for their imagination, the eyes of their hearts. May their hearts see so that they can come to believe!

I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people,
Ephesians 1:18 NIV

Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

The five-fold ministry was given to train and help mature the body of Christ.

And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ, so that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes. Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love.
Ephesians 4:11-16 ESV

I don’t know about you, but I have not yet reached “… to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ …”. I need more education, more training. I expect that in just a little while I might be sitting somewhere with a Bible, notebook, and colorful pencils and pens, learning more about the book of First Peter from the apostle Peter himself!

God showed me some ways to get more from my Bible study. (Wallpaper in My Heavenly Mansion, Matthew — Old Testament) Some of you will learning these from me, I think. 🙂 Just like I will be learning from you too!

Set. Do it. Set. Set your mind on what is coming! Get excited!

Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth.
Colossians 3:2 ESV

It is going to be wild, wonderful and glorious!

Rather, as it is written: “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no heart has imagined, what God has prepared for those who love Him.”
1 Corinthians 2:9 BSB

Are you following God's plan for your life? 
   You should.
      Your plan sucks.
      It really, really sucks.

Get Excited — For Such a Time as This

Out of the thousands of years we could have lived our lives, God chose to have you and I alive now, as things are rushing towards the end.

Say not, “Why were the former days better than these?” For it is not from wisdom that you ask this.
Ecclesiastes 7:10 ESV

In that same hour he rejoiced in the Holy Spirit and said,”I thank you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that you have hidden these things from the wise and understanding and revealed them to little children; yes, Father, for such was your gracious will. All things have been handed over to me by my Father, and no one knows who the Son is except the Father, or who the Father is except the Son and anyone to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.” Then turning to the disciples he said privately, “Blessed are the eyes that see what you see! For I tell you that many prophets and kings desired to see what you see, and did not see it, and to hear what you hear, and did not hear it.”
Luke 10:21-24 ESV

Concerning this salvation, the prophets who prophesied about the grace that was to be yours searched and inquired carefully, inquiring what person or time the Spirit of Christ in them was indicating when he predicted the sufferings of Christ and the subsequent glories. It was revealed to them that they were serving not themselves but you, in the things that have now been announced to you through those who preached the good news to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven, things into which angels long to look.
1 Peter 1:10-12 ESV

Abraham, Moses, the apostles, Esther, and hosts of others all did well in their time.

Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us,
Hebrews 12:1 ESV

We are here, now, for such a time as this.

“For if you keep silent at this time, relief and deliverance will rise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. And who knows whether you have not come to the kingdom for such a time as this?”
Esther 4:14 ESV

Few may listen to your spoken and written words of warning. Shake The Dust Off Your Feet! And keep going! Know that your labor these last however-many days is not in vain.

Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.
1 Corinthians 15:58

The time we can work is drawing to an end. Work while you can!

“We must work the works of him who sent me while it is day; night is coming, when no one can work.
John 9:4 ESV

Be found working! Be blessed!

Blessed is that servant whom his master will find so doing when he comes.
Matthew 24:46 ESV

Are you following God's plan for your life? 
   You should.
      Your plan sucks.
      It really, really sucks.
      Suckage Maximus.

Most people are WRONG! WRONG! WRONG!

Jesus is coming.
   Are you ready to meet Him?
   Give your life to Jesus Christ.
   Time is running out.
