This mantle was designed for those who are lost — for the unsaved. It is for those who are yet to make Jesus Christ the Savior and the Lord of their lives.
For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.
Luke 19:10 KJV
With the “souls” mantle, we labor over the soul of a loved one or over an entire community or over a respective mission field until a note of victory is registered. These type of prayer requires travailing and perseverance, and often takes time before we see the victory in a tangible form.
