Daily Prayer: Year 2, Day 284

From Handbook to Prayer

Intercession

Lord, I now prepare my heart for intercessory prayer for churches and ministries

May our Lord Jesus Christ Himself and God our Father, who has loved us and has given us eternal consolation and good hope by grace, comfort our hearts and strengthen us in every good work and word. (2 Thessalonians 2:16–17)

We should bear one another’s burdens and so fulfill the law of Christ. (Galatians 6:2)

Confess your sins to one other and pray for one other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man accomplishes much. (James 5:16)

In the spirit of these passages, I pray for:

  • My local church
  • Other churches
  • Evangelism and discipleship ministries
  • Educational ministries
  • Special concerns
