40 days of prayer: Day 12

And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved. Acts 4:12

Dear God,

Pluralism has such a stronghold in our society today. Most people think there are many ways to the truth, several ways to God, multiple avenues to heaven. You tell us in Your word that it isn't so: Jesus is the way, the truth and the life, and no one comes to the Father but through Him. There is salvation in no one else.

Lord, I pray for those who do not yet believe that the way to You is through confession of their sin and acceptance of Jesus' work on the cross on their behalf. I ask Lord that You would open their hearts to the truth, that You would put believers in their path to show them the way, that You would point them to Your word. I ask Lord that Your Holy Spirit would quicken their hearts, that they would no longer live in sin. Lord, bring them to full repentance, and reconcile them to God. Work in them that they might live to righteousness and bring You glory.

In Your precious and powerful name I pray,
