Dear Lord Jesus, things have gone from bad to worse for my brother - and Lord we were so close as we grew up together, and it grieves me to see him so desperate and forlorn. He has turned to drugs and is going into the depths or despair and Lord Jesus, it pains me so much to see my lovely brother in such a sad and sorry state.
Lord, we were raised to think that we would never get into heaven unless we were very good and did lots of good things – and we never understood that our sins have ALREADY been forgiven by the blood of Jesus and all we have to do is to trust in Jesus as Saviour to go to heaven – just simply trust that the Bible is true and that Jesus died on the cross to pay the price for the sins of the whole world, so that whoever believes in Him would not perish and go to hell - but would be saved by His blood and be given eternal life.
Lord my brother thinks that he is so bad that he can never be forgiven – but I know that he CAN.. Please show him the truth of the real gospel of grace, I pray, in Jesus name,
