Day 19 Prayer
So he got into a boat, crossed over, and came to his own town. Just then some men brought to him a paralytic lying on a stretcher. Seeing their faith, Jesus told the paralytic, "Have courage, son, your sins are forgive."
Matthew 9:1 - 2
Father, the Bible tells many stories of unnamed men and women who brought their friends to Jesus. I long to bring __________ to You as well. Like the paralytic in this story. I know You are capable of doing far more than merely addressing his/her external needs. You know his/her heart, and You are the only one who is able to forgive his/her sins. __________ may not even sense his/her need for forgiveness at this time, but I understand all people are dead in their sins and are hopeless and helpless apart from the forgiveness You offer. As I strive to bring __________ to You, do what only You are capable of doing and save him/her.
