Keep it up

You must continue

Indeed feel compassion on them for they are going to hell if they continue in their wicked ways.

Compassion: a feeling of wanting to help someone who is sick, hungry and or in trouble Webster’s Dictionary

Don’t you think they know they are living an empty life without meaning. Don’t you think they are hungry for true love and meaning in their lives?

The toys and blocks with which we play Are houses, lands and gold. Their values quickly pass away, As does a tale that's told. But kindly, gracious deeds abide, Their wealth will not depart; Their flowers of joy are multiplied In gardens of the heart. Charles Russell Wakeley

How can you be angry or hate someone like that.

Instead of being angry, pray for Jesus to show you how to lead them to Him or for some other way for them to come to Him. Sometimes you have to walk away. You have done all you can personally but they stubbornly refuse to listen so the only thing left to do is to pray for them.

The last, if not the greatest, of the human freedoms: to choose their own attitude in any given circumstance. Bruno Bettelheim

It hurts when it is someone you love. I know of many instances where people that were close to me say they are not interested in Jesus and don’t want to hear about him. I must respect that and not talk about Him in word but still am a witness to Him by my actions.

Prayer: Jehovah Chanan please fill my heart with Your divine grace when dealing with people who have no desire to listen to Your wonderful message of salvation, love and grace. I ask this in the name of Him who extols grace, Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

God gave them the freedom to live their lives how they want and to choose or reject him, who am I to take that freedom away.

Very good hub. Sometimes all we can do is to pray.

Hi April.

Yes people have the right to chose and we must respect that right, no matter how heartbreaking it is.

Hi mebelle.

That is something important for us to remember, when a loved one rejects Christ we must not stop praying for them. Some I have been praying for for over fifteen years.

Hi cristina.

I agree. No matter how long or difficult, we must not give up. Even if the only option left is prayer.

God bless you all.

It is hard to turn the other cheek, but your words here help to understand how important it is to do so. Thanks.

What a gift God has freely bestowed: prayer. Along with prayer is the certainty that He hears our requests. Great reminder to intercede for the lost!
