Is There A Point In Praying For Someone To Change When He Has No Intention Of Changing?

Yes, there is.

Jesus loves them, and if you want to be in harmony with Jesus, you’ll want to love the people he loves, which is everybody.
Prayer is not a normal part of the life of the natural man. If a person does not pray or isn’t prayed for, what will suffer is the life of the Son of God in him, which is nourished not by food, but by prayer. This is because, when a person is born again from above, the life of the Son of God is born in him, and he can either starve or nourish that life. Prayer is the way that the life of God in us is nourished.

Some times, we think of miracles as an outward sign and tangible proof of God’s mercy. For instance, when the lame walks and the blind sees. But there are other miracles that are not seen, like, the softening the of heart, the finding of forgiveness.  All of those things can come from prayers. Our common ideas regarding prayer are not as we think in the New Testament. We look upon prayer simply as a means of getting things for ourselves, but the biblical purpose of prayer is that we may get to know God Himself.

You can also start by showing love to that person, you will never tell where his change of heart can come from. This is because, to say that “prayer changes things” is not as close to the truth as saying, “Prayer changes you and then you change things.” With prayers, you can change a situation. With prayers, God uses someone to change another or something. God has established things so that prayer, on the basis of redemption, change the way a person looks at things. Prayer is not a matter of changing things externally, but one of working miracles in a person’s inner nature.

Another suggestion is that you can call on Saint Joseph. The foster Father of Jesus, Husband to Mary and the Patron Saint of almost everything! Is it a child, a family member, a neighbor, a friend, an enemy, whoever it turns to him for help. His neighbors were way worse than yours and he also had to move his family. He’s got your back. We always complain before God, and sometimes we are apologetic or indifferent to Him, but we actually ask Him for very few things. Yet a child exhibits a magnificent boldness to ask! Our Lord said, “…unless you…become as little children…” (Matthew 18:3). Ask and God will do. Give Jesus Christ the opportunity and the room to work. The problem is that no one will ever do this until he is at his wits’ end. When a person is at his wits’ end, it no longer seems to be a cowardly thing to pray; in fact, it is the only way he can get in touch with the truth and the reality of God Himself. Be yourself before God and present Him with your problems— the very things that have brought you to your wits’ end.

So don’t despair. For one thing, despair is a sin. With God, there is always hope.
