Call for Prayer in America
*If you haven’t chosen a half hour time slot on the 24/7 Prayer Clock and you want to, please click here.
The first and primary prayer focus in this particular prayer initiative is for the American Church to become revived, strong again and set apart. We’re also praying for the church as a whole in all parts of the world. Here’s what we are agreeing together on:
- Prayers should always start with thanks and praise. While we may be heading down a disastrous rode as a nation, it’s not too late and we can think of many things to be thankful for. Thank The Lord for His many blessings.
- The sin of silence has crippled many of us and this has made us lukewarm and complacent. Pray and ask for forgiveness if that’s been your situation or you can pray for others.
- Many have become discouraged but we need to pray for the church to be encouraged. Pray for your brothers and sisters in Christ that are dealing with situations where they feel discouraged or hopeless.
- Help us to realize that The Church is not a place we go to every week but it is a people who serve The Lord by living out their faith beyond the four walls of a church building. The Church is a people who share Jesus with others and show His love while aiming to please Him with their lives. Help us to BE the CHURCH and live lives that please Jesus Christ.
- Help us to stand for truth and holiness and to be set apart and on fire for Jesus Christ….to be bold in our faith.
- Pray for unity with all believers across the nation regardless of denomination, political preference, race, etc. We must come together and seek God for our cities, states, and our nation.
- Pray that we will allow God to use us to reach the lost. Pray that we will practice personal evangelism and live what we preach/teach by being set apart from the world.
- Pray that the church will take a stand for what is right in relation to homosexuality, abortion, and all immorality. There has to be a distinction between a believer and a non-believer.
- Pray for our church leaders. This includes pastors, teachers, directors, coordinators and anyone who serves in any kind of leadership role. Pray for all leaders and also call out those you know personally. Pray for their strength, protection, their calling and relationship with Jesus Christ.
- Pray for our leaders in Congress (governors, mayors, President, etc.) Pray for salvation of those who aren’t believers and for strength and revival for those who are. Pray that the Christian leaders will make a positive impact in our nation.
- Pray for our children and youth. The devil is using every tactic possible to try to indoctrinate them and desensitize them. Call out their names and plead the blood of Jesus over your children, grandchildren, your neighbor’s children and any children you know. Pray for them to be saved, set apart, and leaders for Christ.
- Pray for yourself to be all that God has called you to be. Seek God and let Him speak to your heart. Worship Him and give Him all of the praise for where He has brought you from to where you are right now.
How to Pray
Prayer is about having a conversation with God. There’s no right or wrong way to talk to God. One thing to remember as we look at the Word of God in Luke 18:11-14 is that humility is a necessity. We also learn that in II Chronicles 34:27 and in John 9:31 we must have a repentant heart and bring any unforgiven sin before Him in sincere humbleness. Matthew 6:9-13 also gives us a guide on how to pray. First we give Him reverence, honor, praise and worship. Second we seek His will above our own. We bring our needs before Him as well as seek His forgiveness. Ask Him for His help in delivering us out of temptation and evil. We live in a world of temptation and chaos and we just simply need His help. Don’t worry what you sound like or if you’re saying something wrong. God looks at our heart and he is constantly pursuing us and wants a relationship with us.
