Pray for your Saul

Acts 8:1-3 English Standard Version (ESV)

8 And Saul approved of his (Stephen’s) execution. And there arose on that day a great persecution against the church in Jerusalem, and they were all scattered throughout the regions of Judea and Samaria, except the apostles. Devout men buried Stephen and made great lamentation over him. But Saul was ravaging the church, and entering house after house, he dragged off men and women and committed them to prison.

As I was reading this verses, the Spirit quickened in my heart to pray for the people who I deemed might be impossible to be a Christian. It just reminds me not to box people and label them as unsavable or unworthy of the gospel. God is no respecter of person. He can save anyone He wants. Let’s take time to pray three people today that God is prompting you to pray for.
