PRAY DAILY FOR THOSE WHO WILL DIE IN THE NEXT 24 HOURS
“Some want to live within the sound of church or chapel bell; I want to run a rescue shop within a yard of hell.”
C. T. Studd
When I heard that approximately 70,000 unsaved people die daily I started praying globally:
When I pray this simple prayer I feel like I’m working in that rescue shop that’s within a yard of hell. When I wake up in the morning and learn about a tragedy–an earth quake, mud slide, terrorist bombing, airline crash, etc. I always experience a certain measure of relief when I have prayed this prayer the day before.
I believe that when people who have prayed this prayer get to Heaven (after they meet Jesus and the friends and relatives who went on ahead) that they will be met by a group of people from all different nationalities waiting in exuberance to thank them by saying, “You don’t know me but on the day I died you prayed….”
Here’s a closing comment from C. H. Spurgeon: “If sinners will be damned, at least let them leap to hell over our bodies. And if they will perish, let them perish with our arms around their knees, imploring them to stay….and let not one go there unwarned and unprayed for.”
I hereby deputize you to pray, Sign up to receive a free, daily e-mail that prompts, “Pray for those who are dying today,” in the subject line.
