Matthew 9:37-38 (KJV): Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few; Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.
I have known Christians who have prayed for the salvation of their family members and friends for years yet some of the people they pray for never seem to change.
Is it because God does not want them saved? This is not so. The Bible says that He desires that all men should be saved (1 Timothy 2:4).
In our theme scripture, God gives us wisdom when it comes to the salvation of souls. He says, ‘Pray ye the Lord of the harvest that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.’
Instead of praying for God to save your brother, sister, uncle, father or daughter, pray to Him to send the right labourers to minister to them and bring them to salvation.
There are people in this life who have been given the grace to minister to other people. The scriptures speak of how Paul was given grace to minister to the Gentiles and Peter to the Jews (Galatians 2:8).
Your relatives might not listen to you but they will listen to those that God has given the grace to minister to them.

GOLDEN NUGGET: Instead of praying for God to save your brother, sister, uncle, father or daughter, pray to Him to send the right labourers to minister to them and bring them to salvation.
PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank You for this truth. Thank You for my family and the people You have brought into my life. For those that do not know You, today, I pray that You send the right labourers to minister to them. Convict them to the necessity of salvation and draw them into Your everlasting light, in Jesus’ name, Amen.a
