When we cooperate with God in the area of faith, prayer, loving God’s way, fighting God’s way, and yielding to the Holy Spirit, we position ourselves as powerful partners in God’s saving work in our family members’ lives.
The Bible is a covenantal book that reveals a covenantal God. When we get revelation that our covenant with God includes our families, it produces a powerful, life-changing confidence in the Covenant-keeping God, to believe for the salvation of our family members.
God has placed us in a position of victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Don’t underestimate the effectiveness of prayer in general and don’t underestimate the effectiveness of your prayers in particular.
Pray at all times (on every occasion, in every season) in the Spirit, with all [manner of] prayer and entreaty. To that end keep alert and watch with strong purpose and perseverance, interceding in behalf of all the saints (God’s consecrated people). Ephesians 6:18 (AMPC) Today we are considering several aspects or “manner” of praying. The Prayer of Intercession, standing in place of another—for example a lost person, or making an earnest request on behalf of a believer is powerful prayer tool. Also building yourself up by praying in the Spirit is essential.
