Please pray wherever you are on Tuesdays @ 10am.
Prayer of Praise and Thanksgiving:
Scripture: John 2:1-11
1. Pray that although the pandemic may be lessening, those first responders are continuing to work, many with long and difficult hours. Lord protect them and their families. We ask that they receive the rest needed to keep them healthy.
2. Pray that the research trials for vaccines and treatment protocols will be successful. Pray for clear and accurate data collection concerning these results.
3. Lord, help us to be people of encouragement to those around us. Especially, we pray for those in hospitals, nursing homes, retirement centers and the sick alone at home. Pray for hospital chaplains and Christian friends and family who share the love of Christ with the sick.
4. Pray for the peace that passes all understanding to cover those who know Jesus. Pray that those who do not know Him will find Him during this pandemic.
5. Pray for small and large businesses to re-open safely. Ask the Father to grant job security and solvency to businesses. Lord help businesses to care for their employees and to practice integrity in all their dealings.
6. Pray for wisdom for government leaders, health experts, and the media as they advise the population about good health practices. Help us to follow guidelines that are true.
7. Pray for our church staff’s health and safety. Let us thank God that they serve our congregation so faithfully during this time of crisis. Pray for wisdom as we resume meeting for worship in our church building. Lord, guide us as we plan good health practices.
8. Pray that our society will exercise safety when we are out and about.
9. Pray for grieving families who must limit those in attendance for funerals and graveside services. Pray for others as they grieve the loss of celebrating momentous occasions with friends, classmates and families.
10. Lord, help us to be sensitive to those around us who are hurting or in need. Remind us to check on the disabled, to offer help to the elderly, or give a listening ear to one whose troubles seem too heavy to bear. Teach us to pray often.
11. Lord help us to look forward with joy and anticipation the things that are ahead of us. Help us to live without fear, but with complete trust in who You are and what You are desiring to do in each of our lives.
12. Lord, teach us to number our days and to serve You joyfully and without reserve. Help us not to grumble or complain. Bless us Lord as we seek to bless those around us.
SEVEN DAYS OF PRAYER
19 NORTHERN AFRICA AND THE MIDDLE EAST. Casablanca, the
economic capital and transportation hub of Morocco, has over 6 million people. A few groups meet regularly, but most believers depend on the internet for spiritual needs. Pray these will have
fellowship, sharing hope in the city.
20 BRITISH OF ENGLAND. Leona* was skeptical when she first
encountered Oikos Church in England. But she found a caring community that she enjoyed, and she later brought her
mother and a friend. Leona is now a part of that church family! Pray for this new believer’s growth and for this ministry.
21 DEAF PEOPLES. When Danny* saw the gospel, he immediately
believed and was baptized. He quickly began sharing the gospel with the other Deaf in his village. Pray for Danny, a new believer himself, as he continues to learn Bible stories and share them.
22 PEOPLES OF RIAU PROVINCE, SUMATRA, INDONESIA. Pray for
local believers to live out the gospel with courage and obedience. Pray for Baptist churches in Riau to disciple the members in sharing the truth of God. Ask for more believers in Riau to gain a passion for reaching the nations!
23 NORTHERN AFRICA AND THE MIDDLE EAST. Every person in
Damascus, the capital of Syria, has been affected by the 9-year war. Traumatic stress is chronic in families. Pray for help through
counselors and trained laymen. Pray that the Prince of Peace will heal broken lives and bring peace.
24 CENTRAL ASIAN PEOPLES. Entry into Central Asia is often difficult. Pray that God will open new avenues for Christian workers and allow those already serving in the area to find favor with authorities so that they can continue the work.
25 NORTHERN AFRICA AND THE MIDDLE EAST. Immigrants moved to Marseille, France, looking for a better life. Instead, they found high unemployment rates, poor housing, and rampant drugs and crime. Pray that they will turn to Jesus who can bring salvation and joy in their lives.
