Praying for our Unsaved Friends & Family (Luke 23:26-34)Pastor Justin Pratt, March 12, 2017
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Evening service
This morning's message took a somewhat unexpected turn and lead directly to tonight's message. Our altars were full in the morning service, but not of people crying out for their own salvation. Some got assurance of their own salvation. But many knelt in prayer for others. They lifted up the names of family and friends who were unsaved, who they did not want to see face the White Throne Judgement.
Tonight's message grew from this morning's service and Pastor Justin showed us what the Bible says about Praying for our Unsaved Friends & Family.
Who's on your heart that you can lift up today?

26And as they led him away, they laid hold upon one Simon, a Cyrenian, coming out of the country, and on him they laid the cross, that he might bear it after Jesus. 27And there followed him a great company of people, and of women, which also bewailed and lamented him. 28But Jesus turning unto them said, Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me, but weep for yourselves, and for your children. 29For, behold, the days are coming, in the which they shall say, Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bare, and the paps which never gave suck. 30Then shall they begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us; and to the hills, Cover us. 31For if they do these things in a green tree, what shall be done in the dry? 32And there were also two other, malefactors, led with him to be put to death. 33And when they were come to the place, which is called Calvary, there they crucified him, and the malefactors, one on the right hand, and the other on the left. 34Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots. (KJV)
