Should we pray for unreached peoples to have dreams and visions of Jesus?

Of course – and let’s be specific!

 

Sometimes I hear people praying that others who don’t know Christ will ‘have a miraculous dream’, or ‘see Jesus in a vision’. Awesome – no problem. But I don’t think it’s enough to cause people to follow Jesus and be saved. It is an amazing and exceptional way for people to be compelled into a real relationship where they personally hear about Jesus Christ, and then follow Him.

 

Cornelius’ vision in Acts 10 compelled him to go and find Peter, in order to truly hear the message of salvation in Christ. Cornelius was not saved by the vision, he was mobilised to find a messenger.

 

So, let’s pray that people will “hear the message.. through the word of Christ” (Romans 10:17). Pray that people in Vietnam, and Russia, and North India, and Yemen, and China … will either meet a faithful Christian in person, or get their hands on a radio, and find FEBC on-air and hear the message. This is practical, biblical, and real (it happens every day!). Wonderful.
