Pray for the condition of their hearts to change.
B. Spirit of Conviction
Ask for the release of the spirit of conviction of sin, righteousness, and judgment to come.
John 16:8 - "And He, when He comes, will convict the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment..."
C. Spirit of Revelation
Ask for the spirit of wisdom and revelation (dreams, visions, inspiration etc.)
Ephesians 1:17-19 - "...that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of Him. I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe. These are in accordance with the working of the strength of His might..."
D. Recall To Remembrance.
Ask the Lord to bring to their remembrance any of the good Word of God that they were taught from their childhood to this day
1. John 14:26 - "But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you."
2. Isaiah 55:11 - "So will My word be which goes forth from My mouth; it will not return to Me empty, without accomplishing what I desire, and without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it."
E. Pray Prayers of Forgiveness
Forgive your mother, your father, your son, your daughter. Forgiveness is the master key that unlocks the prison door to a heart of stone. Through forgiveness comes a place of identification. The model prayer of Jesus is not an individual prayer. It is a corporate prayer.
Matthew 6:9-15 - "Pray, then, in this way: 'Our Father who is in Heaven, hallowed be Your name. Your Kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from evil. (For Yours is the Kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.)'"
F. Pray for Laborers to Be Released to Your Loved Ones
Matthew 9:38 - "Therefore beseech the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into His harvest."
G. Pray for a Revelation of Eternity
Ask the Lord to give them an awareness of the realities of both Heaven and Hell. Ask the Lord to reveal that none are righteous and that we each need to receive the free gift of eternal life through Christ Jesus!
H. Resist the Enemy
Pray to break the powers of darkness that are generationally hindering your loved ones from the saving power of Jesus' Blood.
I. Solicit Other People's Prayers
Enroll others on your team of intercessors to pray for your family.
Ephesians 6:19-20 - "...and pray on my behalf, that utterance may be given to me in the opening of my mouth, to make known with boldness the mystery of the Gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains; that in proclaiming it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak."
2 Corinthians 1:11 - "...you also joining in helping us through your prayers, so that thanks may be given by many persons on our behalf for the favor bestowed upon us through the prayers of many."
J. Revelation of God's Love
Ask for God's love to overwhelm them. (Don't pray for bad things to happen to them.)
1. Romans 2:4 - "Or do you think lightly of the riches of His kindness and (forbearance) and patience, not knowing that the kindness of God leads you to repentance?"
2. Romans 12:14, 19 - "Bless those who persecute you; bless and curse not...Never take your own revenge, beloved, but leave room for the wrath of God, for it is written, 'Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,' says the Lord."
Expect Great Things! Let revival begin. Release your faith and believe the Lord for more of His presence to come to your family. Stand as a Prophet, Priest and King of your family before the Lord and your own home and family for the glory of God's great name.
