Scripture: “And He, when He comes, will convict the world concerning sin, and righteousness, and judgment…” -John 16:8
Prayer: Father, we thank You that mercy triumphs over judgment. You are slow to anger, abounding in lovingkindness, and are ready to show compassion to all who call upon You.
Jesus, You see the many lives that are facing the tug of war between life and death. We ask that You would release your Holy Spirit to convict about eternal realities. According to Your promise, we ask that there would be a sudden awareness of sin, righteousness, and judgment.
We claim Your word that says that You do not wish for any to perish but for all to come to repentance. Let it be so! Father, we ask that You would touch someone in Baghdad today with the revelation of Your son. Bring back to their memory the stories they have heard about Jesus; release an awareness of Christ’s presence; and let dreams and supernatural signs come down that confirm You are the Lord, and the Prince of Peace.
Break him or her free from the power of darkness. I bring them before Your great throne of mercy, and ask that the sacrifice of Jesus be laid to their account. I thank You that You decree them forgiven and free, just as You have for me. In Jesus name, amen.
