A Prayer for a non-Christian to meet Jesus:
Father, Your Word clearly states that it is not Your will that anyone should die, but that all repent of their sin and live (Ezek. 18:23). Your Word also tells us that You are patient, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance (2 Pet. 3:9).

You loved the world so, that You gave Your one and only Son that whoever believes in You shall not perish but have eternal life (Joh. 3:16). You demonstrated Your love for us in the fact that Christ died for us whilst we were still sinners (Rom. 5:8). With this truth in mind, I pray for the salvation of __________.

I pray that You raise _________ from the dead to life (Joh. 5:21). Father, draw ________ to You, as no one can come to Jesus unless Your Holy Spirit draws them.
