God puts different people in our lives for whom He wants us to pray. This is an example of aggressive prayer for the unbelievers we know. (To download a .doc file of this prayer, click here.)

Loving heavenly Father, in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I bring before You in Prayer ____________________. I ask for the Holy Spirit's guidance that I might pray in the Spirit as You have told me to pray. I thank you, heavenly Father, that You have sovereign control over ___________________.

In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and as a priest of God, I ask for mercy and forgiveness for the sins of _________________ by which he has grieved You. I plead the sufficiency of the blood of Jesus to meet the full penalty his sins deserve. I claim back the ground of his life which he has given to Satan by believing the enemy's deception. In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ I resist all of Satan's activity to hold ________________ in blindness and darkness, exercising the authority which is given to me in my union with the Lord Jesus Christ. I pray for the destruction of the strongholds which the kingdom of darkness has formed against _________________ 's mind, his will, his emotions, and his body. I pray for the destruction of the spiritual blindness and deafness that Satan keeps upon him. I pray for the Holy Spirit of God to bring the fullness of His power to convict, to bring repentance, and to lead _________________ into faith in the Lord Jesus Christ as his Savior. I ask that he be covered with the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. I ask that Satan's power to blind him to the Truth of God be broken.

Believing that your Holy Spirit is leading me, I claim ______________ for You in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. I thank You for the answer to my prayer. In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ I joyfully lay this prayer before you in the worthiness of His complete work. Amen.
