Let Us Pray! World Day of Prayer

bible-706641_1920

The World Day of Prayer is a worldwide movement of Christian women of many traditions who come together to observe a common day of prayer each year, and who, in many countries, have a continuing relationship in prayer and service.

Through World Day of Prayer, women affirm that prayer and action are inseparable and that both have immeasurable influence in the world. The motto of the World Day of Prayer is “Informed Prayer and Prayerful Action”.

With this in mind, I encourage all women to join me on this day of prayer.  For me, prayer is talking to God and letting Him know my thoughts, needs and desires.  It also is my way of thanking Him for all that He has done in my life.

Not sure what to pray for? In keeping with my Simply 7 Series, below are 7 topics to pray about. Thank you to FocusOnTheFamily.com  and MomsInPrayer.org for the wealth of information.  Both are amazing resources to help you out with your prayer life.

The Children – Yes, I believe the children are our future.  {channeling my inner Whitney, RIP} Our children are constantly under attack.  From mass shootings to health related illnesses. We need to cover our children with prayer.  I pray for and with my son everyday before he gets on the school bus. 

 

 

 

2owl-158418_1280. Family – Families come in all shapes and sizes. Large or small, families help define us. {To some degree} Take time to pray for each member of your family. including extended family members. Entrust each one to the Lord. Wherever they are in their relationship with God, pray that He draws them “ever one step closer.” Be as specific as you can as you pray.

List the names of and pray for the physically and spiritually afflicted. Pray specifically for ministries that are reaching out to the helpless, hopeless, hurting and lost.

 

 

choir-309051_12804. God’s Family – Pray for the church, starting with your local church. Pray for your pastor(s), ministry leaders (e.g., elders, deacons, missionaries, teachers, nursery workers) and their families. Who else in the church needs prayer? Now think of the church around the world. Pray that the Gospel would be preached.

 

 

 

network-1020332_19205. Your Community – Think about the groups where you are a member and pray for the people you see regularly — those you live near, work with, bump into at school or the store, and so forth. How have they asked you to pray for them? Pray that the Lord will meet each one at his or her point of need, both physically and spiritually, according to His will.

 

 

6. The Nation – Pray for the revival of God’s people, and american-flag-1208660_1920that we’ll be His hands and feet as we truly love and serve those around us. Pray for those in authority. Ask God to bring to mind local and national spiritual and political leaders, and pray for each. Pray about national issues and challenges, such as the economy and its impact on everyday families.

 

 

7. heart-741511_1920Pray for Personal Guidance – Finally, take time to pray for your own personal needs. Sometimes we pray for everything and everyone else but forget to pray for ourselves. Walk with God through every aspect of your life — your personal, family, work, community, and church aspects of your life. Say, “Speak whatever to me, Lord, I’m listening!”
