Q. I know that we should pray for the unsaved to come to faith. However, how are we supposed to pray when a person won’t even listen to reason? My son says he doesn’t believe in any idea of a God, and doesn’t want to hear about it. Please help me to understand how to pray for him, and how to influence him to discover the God who loves him.
A. You don’t have to involve your son in the conversation at all. You and the Lord can conspire together to bring either the perfect person or the perfect circumstances into his life to provide him with a clear gospel presentation. I’m sure that thousands of the people who read this will agree with you in prayer for his salvation.
