And Elisha prayed, “Open his eyes, Lord, so that he may see.” 2 Kings 6:17 Holy Bible, New International Version
What do you believe is the best method of bringing others into Jehovahs family?
Do you think it is with self help groups, do you think it is with Bible study groups, do you think it is by bringing them to church or a Christian concert?
From personal experience I have found that praying that the Holy Spirit blesses them by opening their eyes to the truth about the trinity and accepting them into their lives is the most effective way.
Yes we need to share the Gospel but before we do that we need to pray for the Holy Spirit to open their eyes to the Truth. The same can be said in every other aspect of life.
We need to pray for the Holy Spirit to open our loved ones eyes to the career Jehovah desires for them to follow, the right spouse (if any. Yes Jehovah has planned for some of us to remain unmarried so please stop hassling us about it), how to resolve a dispute, how to be a good Christian parent and any and all other aspect of of daily living. And of course, once their eyes have been opened we must pray they have the resolve to be obedient children of Jehovah had follow His advice.
It is wonderful what miracles God works in wills that are utterly surrendered to Him.– Hannah Whitall Smith
This is not to be a one day prayer but a continual one that is prayed for every day until the prayer is answered. When the prayer is answered please remember to be respectful and thank Jehovah for the blessing of answering your prayer.
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Ezer (The LORD our Helper) for blessing me with Your divine help in opening the eyes of those who are receptive unto accepting You into their lives and helping them to become Your holy children. I praise You in the name of He who opened the blind mans eyes Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
