Before the Lord – Day 6

“Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved.” Romans 10:1

When I read the sincere prayer and evident desire of the Apostle Paul to see his family saved, I am convicted and challenged.  I want my family to know Christ and His salvation. I want them to have eternal life. The alternative is more than I can bear to think upon. However, at times, it is easier to talk to a complete stranger about eternity than those I love so dearly. In error, I have often prayed “Lord should I say something?”. Of course I should say something! Their eternity hangs in the balance! Putting obstacles aside, I must let nothing stand in the way of proclaiming the love of Christ and the clear unchanging way of salvation to my loved ones. 

My prayer today:

Lord give me wisdom to speak my family in the right way. Grant me the right spirit to approach them and opportunity to have this life changing conversation before it is too late. Please save my family for your name’s sake.
