As a Church, let’s commit to being united in prayer even as we are separated from one another during the week. One way we can do this is by setting an alarm so that each of us are praying together at 6:18 (either in the morning and/or evening). When your alarm goes off, take a few moments to pray over the daily theme. Ephesians 6:18 says that we should be “praying at all times in the Spirit” (ESV). May we be united in prayer.
Acknowledge that God is in control. Ask for the humility and strength to allow Him to have sovereign reign over every aspect of our lives.
— Psalm 115
Pray for those who are opposed to God. Pray for their salvation. Ask that God would turn their hearts toward Him in faith.
Pray that we would reach lost people. Ask that God would open our eyes to see those who need the Good News of Jesus, and give us boldness to speak of what God has done for us. And pray for the expansion
of the Kingdom right here in the Springfield area, as well as around the world.
— Acts 4:23-31
Pray for our Leaders (both within the Church and our nation). Ask that God would give them vision, wisdom, protection from the enemy, patience and strength.
— 1 Timothy 2:1-6
Pray that God would protect our families from Satan’s attacks. Ask that He would help us to humbly serve one another, and that our homes would serve as models of Christlikeness.
— Philippians 2:1-11
Pray for those in prison. Ask that God would shine His light to those who feel oppressed by their surroundings. Pray for the encouragement of the Believers in prison, and that they would find ways to share the Gospel to those who need Jesus.
— Ephesians 6:16-20
