Today a Pastor on a local TV (in India) was preaching that we need not pray for someone's salvation. Salvation is something that belongs to God and His Plans. He also said that nowhere in the New testament are believers requested to pray for sinners or to ask God for a non-believer's salvation.
He said the plan of salvation by God is already fulfilled, and we only preach the Gospel and live a model life for unsaved people to come to our Lord.
Revealtion 19:1 says,
19 After these things I heard a loud voice of a great multitude in heaven, saying, “Alleluia! Salvation and glory and honor and power belong to the Lord.
If salvation belongs to the Lord, praying for someone's salvation would become absurd, correct?
PS: I found another question Praying for someone's salvation. Is there a point? but that was asked in a bit different approach. If this question still seems irrelevant, kindly close it or merge it. Thanks.
