Who Prays for Satan?

But who prays for Satan? Who, in eighteen centuries, has had the common humanity to pray for the one sinner that needed it most?

-Mark Twain 

Think about it. We are supposed to believe that “all things are possible to him who believe” right… so why don’t we pray as if all things are? Many will say, “Satan doesn’t want to be forgiven, he doesn’t want to change.” Others will say, “it is already written.” Have you read the book of Jonah? It was already written (in the mind of God) that the city of Ninevah would be destroyed [unless] they turned from their hurtful ways. Jonah did not want to go there, not only because he was afraid to be persecuted, but [mainly] because he knew God would show them mercy. Do you all believe the devil deserves hell? Which, according to a standard of holiness, he does! Yet, when will there come a time in your thinking, when you will desire a change of heart in an evil being, more than you desire him to be destroyed or tortured for eternity? When will you desire compassion to enter into a heartless being, for the sake of them, so that they can be healed? When will you put off your own emotions of hurt, anger, and revenge, and replace them with actual love for those who need it most? It is crazy how Christians can boast of the wicked going to hell, and them inheriting heaven (I used to do it too). Yes, that may be a glorious thing, for YOURSELF, but it is the most saddening thing that could ever happen to the soul of another. So the next time you rejoice about the “wicked” being punished, remember that you just wasted breath, because the time you used to rejoice over the pain of another, could’ve been rightly used to pray for a change in their heart, and mercy from God.
