Praying For A Child’s Salvation

 

 

Q. Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, Brother. Your site is such a blessing to me.

My question is can we have an impact on someone’s salvation through our prayers? I have always believed that we could, after all Jesus said ask anything in His name and it will be done, it’s certainly in His will and two or more have prayed and claimed it. I just read your response to “Can we save the dead” and now I am wondering if my prayers will help.

I have two daughters, neither of whom are believers. I have spoken in depth with my oldest and she just doesn’t “buy into” Jesus. I pray that they will come to know the Lord before the Rapture. I admit that I am not always a great example to them, I am impatient and do other sins that I ask God to forgive me of. Problem is they don’t see that I am forgiven and redeemed at the cross – they only see me as an imperfect person. But, all this aside I am a loving, frustrated mother.

The Gospel According To Paul … Part 1

Romans 1
The Rapture is getting closer by the day. The Church’s days on Earth are clearly numbered and whether we’re taken up this year or not it’s certainly not too soon to prepare. With that in mind we’ll begin a study of Paul’s Letter to the Romans, the Gospel according to Paul.

Can We Save The Dead?

In the Scriptures, we are told that if we ask God the father for anything in Jesus’ name, it will be done. Are there limitations to this, or have I misunderstood what the Scriptures are saying? The reason I ask is that I am very concerned about the souls of unbelieving friends and relatives who have passed away.

Honor Your Father

My Dad was recently diagnosed with terminal cancer. I am the oldest of 8 and 5 of us are followers of Jesus trying to walk in obedience and love. The other 3 are either in direct disobedience, deceived or very weak. All profess to be Christians. The question the rest of us have is: Can we in good conscience unite in prayer (for our father’s healing) with those who are obviously violating God’s Word?

The Power Of Prayer

Q. What is the significance of praying? does something begin to happen in the spiritual realm when we pray that we don’t see? If God knows our needs before we even ask, why pray? I understand the need to show our dependence upon God, but what is going on when we pray?

Is This Fasting Or Not?

I go to a church that does fasting different than I’ve ever heard. I believe that you give up food in some way or totally for as long as you feel God would expect of you as an individual. I have heard that a person can fast things like giving up T.V or some kind of pleasure. I do not believe in this as to me it seems like one is giving up a sin that should not be in your life any way.

Mourning The Loss Of A Friend

Over a year has passed.  Job chapter 3, verse 3, would sum up my feelings, as well as my thoughts.  Any Information that you may have to offer in your capacity as a bible teacher would be much appreciated.  Thanks.

Binding And Claiming

Concerning people who claim healing in Jesus’ name, or bind things in Jesus’ name. I asked a woman who admitted she attends a charismatic church about why she prays this way, binding and claiming and so forth. She took me to Matthew 16:19 telling me that Jesus has given us the power to do these things.

Fasting

Q. My question is about fasting. I know that there are examples in the New Testament of people fasting, but I’ve never had a pastor ever teach about it. How should we fast? When? For how long? How often? How does it work? What is it’s purpose? Please teach me about this subject and how I should incorporate it into my own life and walk with God. Thank you, as always, for all of your hard work.
