The focus of our prayers tend to focus on ourselves and people we know. Sometimes we venture off and pray for someone we don’t know because someone we know tells us about a need. Yet, the reality is we live in a bubble, which means we have to go the extra mile in praying for people outside our sphere of influence.
Here are some needs that I know are in every community that we can lift up in prayer:
teachers and administrators in local schools
mercy and care for the poor
law enforcement officials
care for foster children and orphans
pray for God to bring a revival in your area, that many would come to know and follow Jesus
pray for God to send new church planters to plant in your community
Spend some time praying about how God wants to use you specifically to be in salt and light where you are. Listen. Commit. Act.
I’m praying with you.
