Pray for them regularly. Spend time with them in your home and in enjoyable activities. Share your personal testimony: Your past life, Your salvation experience, Your new life in Christ.

Share the Gospel with them: Christ died for our sins, was buried, and rose again bodily on the third day. Invite them to trust in the Lord Jesus Christ alone so they can be saved.

Why Pray?

“Therefore I [theApostle Paul] exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions [for or against others – Romans 11:2], and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth” (1 Timothy 2:1-4).

Paul’s Prayer

“For this reason we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; that you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power, for all patience and longsuffering with joy; giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light. He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins” (Colossians 1:9-14).
