All the Lord ever asked us to do for the unsaved is preach. He never asked us to convict, convert or even to pray for someone’s soul to be saved.
Some prayers can be dangerous. Prayer becomes dangerous when it descends into charismatic witchcraft when the one who prays seeks to control the lives of others. Soulish prayers of this kind energizes psychic power by projecting one’s thought on to the persons that they are praying for, by saying that such and such a person ‘shall’ do this or that. Such prayers make demands upon God to “make something happen. According to Jessie Penn Lewis,
“Every prayer should be directed Godward, and should never be a telling the Lord what to do for somebody else. We may pray that God will direct them what to do, but we ought not to say that they ‘must’ do what WE THINK is God’s will they should do, or even that they ‘shall not’ do what we know is wrong.”
So what is the purpose of intercessors prayer? I believe it is in Isaiah 58. To loose the bands of wickedness. To let the oppressed go free. To undo heavy burdens. To break every yoke.
It is amazing how so many unsaved people think that their prayers are saving folk! SMH
