Heavenly Father, we come to You today to intercede for our nation and the nations of the world, that are in such commotion and disarray, and are so antagonistic towards You, and hateful towards the Lord Jesus Christ - Who died for the sins of the world. Lord there are so many that have been blinded by the lies of the enemy and who have been prevented from seeing the glorious gospel of the grace of God, but are entrapped by Satan and a slave to sin.
Lord, it is not Your will that any should perish but that all should come to faith in Jesus Christ and so we pray that You would look down with pity on the nations of the world and the many that are dead in their sins, and who face an eternity - separated from their Creator. Open the eyes of those that are spiritually blind and unblock the ears of those that are spiritually deaf.
Soften the hearts of those that have pridefully rejected the free gift of salvation by grace through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, and draw many we pray, who are spiritually lost into a saving faith in Christ. We pray against the many different strongholds that are imprisoning the hearts and minds of so many, and ask that the satanic deceptions that have entrapped so many, will be exposed for what they are.
Shine down the sunshine of Your hope into this lost and dying world and help us not to grow weary in interceding, but rather may we find the grace to plead more intensely, knowing that the time is so short - we ask this in Jesus name,
