A Prayer for the Lost

We here at SMR would like to extend and say our prayers to the family of four from Rota that have been missing out there in the big blue....

Follow the story here....
Father, hear us as we ask You to rescue the lost from the domain of darkness and bring them into the kingdom of Your Son. You alone can draw and enable them. You alone can send Your Holy Spirit with power to convict them of the sin in their life and their need to repent and believe in Your truth--that Jesus is the only way to You, that He alone is the way, the truth and the life.

Father, we ask you to forgive the sins of the lost. We come in Jesus’ name to demolish the strongholds in their minds that those sins have allowed. We come in the authority of Jesus’ name to overcome the power of the enemy in their lives, to ask You to bind evil spirits away from them in the name of Jesus and the blood of the Lamb through the word of our testimony.

We come against the blinding of their minds and ask that You send someone to open their eyes and turn them from darkness to light; help us to be willing to go. Father, don’t let their hearts be hardened, but open their hearts to receive Your truth. Rip away any veil that covers their hearts, any false teaching that confuses their minds. Help them to hear your Word with power and conviction as the Word of God and not the word of man. Give them understanding, so that Satan will not be able to steal Your Word from their hearts.

Father, help them see their need for a Savior, to know they must confess their sins, repent and believe--or they perish. Help them choose Your mercy and Your gift of faith, to believe with their hearts and confess with their mouths, Jesus is Lord. We ask in Your will, that not any should perish. In Jesus’ name, amen.(Kaye Johns)

They may still show up. We read bout it all the time. Fishermen turn up safe and sound after a month or two of drifting in small boats. Good luck to this group.

Save your prayers, send them a Sikorsky.

After finding it on Google, did you actually read this “Prayer for the Lost” before posting?

It is not a prayer for those geographically lost at sea, in the jungle, desert, wilderness, or elsewhere.

It is a fundamentalist Protestant prayer for those Lost to the power of Satan who need to be “Born Again” according to the tenets of that particular sect to be “Saved.”

Hardly words of comfort to bereaved friends and family members, though I'm sure your heart was in the right place.

Some say and the Coast Guard think this was a hoax. No wreckage or debris was ever found. Anyone have more info?
