In this message, Pastor Brandon Lindell shares a strengthening sermon titled, “Praying for the Lost.” Join us as we study God’s Word and learn three ways we can pray for those who don’t know Jesus. Our hope is that this sermon would equip and encourage you to pray for the lost and share the Gospel with people who need Jesus!
Praying for the Lost
Charles Haddon Spurgeon
“The Condition of the church may be very accurately gauged by it’s prayer meetings. So is the prayer meeting a graceometer, and from it we may judge of the amount of divine working among people. If God be near a church, it must pray. And if He be not there, one of the first tokens of his absence will be a slothfulness in prayer!”

So pray to the Lord who is in charge of the harvest; ask him to send more workers into his fields.”

The prayer was no sooner prayed than it was answered. Jesus called twelve of his followers and sent them into the ripe fields. He gave them power to kick out the evil spirits and to tenderly care for the bruised and hurt lives.
