Yes! We often times pray for The Salvation of our love ones, but did you know that God has already saved them? Hold on now this is not misinterpretation of the bible. You can all agree that when God does something it happens and it does not change because He does not change (Hebrews 13:8.) Look at the Word of God in John 3:16:
John 3:16King James Version (KJV)
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Hebrews 13:8King James Version (KJV)
8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.
Who is left out in the meaning of the word, ‘whosoever?’ No one is left out. This includes your loved ones too. So the good and what we deemed bad have been saved by God’s Love through the crucifixion and resurrection of His Son Jesus.
Now, God has made us free spirits with the ability of a free will. This is where the problem lies… in our free will. Something so great as a free will can be our own construction or destruction of ourselves. That is why the ‘whosoever’ has a free will or choice to believe so that he will not perish but be saved.
So when you ask God to save our loved ones His reply will be that He did. Your love ones have a choice to believe and save themselves through believing. Look at this verse:
2 Corinthians 4:4King James Version (KJV)
4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
Who is the God of this World? satan is the god of this world. How did he blind the minds of the unbeliever and caused them not to believe? The Greek word for blinded has one of its root meanings being ego. They are blinded by their own egos just like satan. satan has convinced them to be independent of God thereby making them unbelievers through their ability to choose themselves over God. This is why you have to make God first in every situation. You do that by choosing to love Him above everything. This makes you dependent on God for everything. And when you do He becomes your everything in every situation.
Philippians 4:19Amplified Bible (AMP)
19 And my God will liberally supply (fill to the full) your every need according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.
Your prayer for your loved ones should be, ‘Lord, remove the blinders off their eyes so they can see the light of the glorious gospel of Christ and choose to believe. Believe in the Greek means to be fully persuaded. The process of being fully persuaded is your FAITH.
GOD IS LOVE, LOVE CONQUERS AND COVERS IT ALL…
