December 31, 2019 Higher Everyday Devotional :- PRAY SOULS INTO PARADISE
TUESDAY DECEMBER 31, 2019
TOPIC: PRAY SOULS INTO PARADISE
TEXT: ROMANS 10:1-21
BIBLE TEXT: “Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved” (ROMANS 10:1).
To pray souls into Paradise, in our context, actually means praying for sinners to be saved. “I was in a city in Missouri for a service one night. I had ministered in music and had also taught the Word. It was time to close the meeting and it was impressed on me to ask those who had loved ones needing salvation to come to the altar area and follow me (audibly) as I led them in prayer of binding and loosing to the benefit of their family and loved ones. We then lifted up our voices to give thanks to God, believing that what we prayed for was ours”. This story was narrated by the American gospel singer and minister, David Ingles.
After the Missouri meeting, time went by. Then, one day, he received a letter from a lady who joined in the prayer at that meeting. Since that day, she said, her aging father and mother had been saved. She added, “Further, five of my seven brothers and one of my two sisters have been born-again”. Wonderful! Prayer works. Pray, pray souls into God’s kingdom.
