18 Prayers to Pray for Unbelievers

A friend asked the question: How do I pray for unbelievers? How do I pray effectively? I trust that every Christian regularly prays for family or friends or colleagues or neighbors who do not yet know the Lord. And while we can and must pray for matters related to their lives and circumstances, the emphasis of our prayers must always be for their salvation. Here are some ways the Bible can guide our prayers.

Prayers for Salvation

  1. Pray that God would circumcise their hearts. (Deuteronomy 30:6)

  2. Pray that God would give them a heart of flesh. (Ezekiel 11:19)

  3. Pray that God would put his Spirit within them. (Ezekiel 36:27)

  4. Pray that they would come to Christ. (Matthew 11:28-30)

  5. Pray that God would open their hearts to believe the gospel. (Acts 16:14)

  6. Pray that God would free them from the slavery of sin. (Romans 6:17)

  7. Pray that God would remove Satan’s blinding influence. (2 Corinthians 4:4)

  8. Pray that God would grant them repentance. (2 Timothy 2:25-26)
