Pray and search for the lost “Until”?
Hello all Royal Prayer Guards and all believers around the world who by faith will join us! Thank you for your endurance to pray especially in this season!
Christmas season seems to be a time when many people are thinking about God. It is a joyful time however it can become stressful.
As believers in Christ it would be wise to utilize this season to pray for those who do not know Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior.
In addition real joy comes when a person knows the Lord.
As each person goes forth in the joy of the Lord they will have the strength to live on this earth doing His will.

Therefore as Royal Prayer Guards (Believers) what can we do?
Pray and search for the lost during this holiday season with the intensity as seen in the following portions in God’s word. (Bible)
Luke 15:3-7 (TLB)
3 So Jesus used this illustration:
4 "If you had a hundred sheep and one of them strayed away and was lost in the wilderness, wouldn’t you leave the ninety-nine others to go and search for the lost one until you found it?
5 And then you would joyfully carry it home on your shoulders.
6 When you arrived you would call together your friends and neighbors to rejoice with you because your lost sheep was found.
7 "Well, in the same way heaven will be happier over one lost sinner who returns to God than over ninety-nine others who haven’t strayed away!
Luke 15:8-10 (TLB)
8 "Or take another illustration: A woman has ten valuable silver coins and loses one. Won’t she light a lamp and look in every corner of the house and sweep every nook and cranny until she finds it?
9 And then won’t she call in her friends and neighbors to rejoice with her?
10 In the same way there is joy in the presence of the angels of God when one sinner repents."
Luke 19:10 (NKJV)
"for the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost."
* Here are some questions not just for you but for myself as well. How much effort are we putting forth to pray and search for the lost? Are we searching "until"?
