The Open Door (prayer)

1JOhn 22

(Join me in this prayer for people of other religions.)

Lord,

Thank You for bringing people of other religions into my life

So I can share Your love with them.

You say no one can come to You

Except through the Son

So give rise to the Holy Spirit inside of me

To compel them to ask, seek, and knock

On the door of Jesus Christ, our Savior,

For You promised those who sincerely seek

Would find an open door to Your kingdom

Through Your embracing arms of grace.

Don’t let them to continue to bestow affections

On false gods when You deserve the glory.

Deliver them from false beliefs

So they can study the truth in Your Word.

Prevent them from trying to find righteousness

Inside themselves without You

Since that is impossible for

No one is good but You alone.

You say the gate to life is narrow,

But let them be among the few

Who walk through the narrow gate

And live eternally by faith in Jesus Christ;

After all, You already paid for their sins

With Your Son’s precious blood.

In Christ’s Name, Amen.
