In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
(2 Corinthians 4:4)


Is there a voice whispering in your ear, “Your family and friends will never get saved. They will be lost forever.” Don’t believe it—Satan is a liar!

Satan is the god of this world and may have temporarily blinded the minds of your loved ones. It may seem hopeless as you listen to their unbelief and mocking . . . as you watch those you care about most indulge in sin and laugh about what they are doing.

Don’t give up! Keep praying, and most of all, believing the Word of God that says Christ defeated Satan on the cross at Calvary. The devil’s power is broken off your loved ones. As you continue to love them, pray for them, and witness to them as the Holy Spirit guides and gives you opportunity, you will see every chain demolished and the captives set free!


Lord, I pray that (________________) is set free from the lies of the devil and his/her spiritual eyes are open to the light of the glorious gospel of Christ. Satan, I cast down every stronghold and deception, and command you to loose your control over (________________). You have been defeated by Christ and no longer have power over my loved ones. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
