The salvation of our family is a deeply cherished desire, and the Bible offers hope and encouragement to pray. Acts 16:31 says, ‘Believe on the Lord Jesus and you will be saved, and your entire household.’ (TLB) Faith encourages us to believe in the power of God to work in the lives of our loved ones and bring about their salvation.
Cultivate a Christ-centered environment within our homes to pursue family salvation by prioritising prayer, worship, and studying God's Word together. If family members are resistant to that, pray. Set aside a time every day to pray for your family.
Ultimately, the salvation of our family members rests in God's hands. We can continue to pray persistently, trusting in His perfect timing and unfailing love for each individual. We should never give up hope; whether it takes a week, a month or ten years, you will eventually break through.
Quote When we pray for family members, we influence those closest to us toward Christ.
Lord, I ask for the salvation of my family. I will do my part to pray for them every day. Amen.
Do you pray every day? If not, it’s time to be resolute, pray each day for a month and see what happens.
