On God’s heart are people. He wants everyone in relationship with Him. In fact, the Bible says that He wants all to come to repentance and none to perish. And He has given us the Great Commission to “go into all the world and make disciples, teaching and baptizing them.” (Matt 28:19,20)

One of the greatest prayers we can pray is for people who are far from God to find Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior. Who close to you are you praying for to come to faith? Maybe it’s a family member, co-worker, or classmate? How are you praying for people around the world who do not yet know Jesus?

People matter to God – and they should matter to us. One of the ways we prove they matter is to pray that everyone hears about Jesus and comes to a saving knowledge of faith in Jesus Christ. Let’s pray today…and each day…that everyone comes to know Jesus.
