An Unceasing Anguish for the Lost

I find myself always introducing people to the ministry of Francis Chan, author of Forgotten God and Crazy Love.  This message has been posted online in various forms and from recordings in various locations.  This clip is about 15 minutes — it’s the second time this YouTube poster has put it up in some format — but it’s 15 minutes that could change your day.   Just let this roll and do whatever else you need to do online.  There’s a lot of discussion you can get from hearing this message excerpt.


  1. Thanks Paul for sharing Francis’s yearnings with us.

  2. This was very convicting. After years of busy ministry, I am at a stage in my life where I am learning and learning and hungering after the Word but I am not “doing” ministry.Before I “do” I think I need to ask my Father to teach me to love and anguish before I reach out. I cannot say I have ever felt like Francis did at his grandmothers bedside, yet I live with a husband who has not yet believed in Christ or repented of his sins.
