Daily Prayer: Year 2, Day 332

From Handbook to Prayer

Intercession

Lord, I now prepare my heart for intercessory prayer for world affairs.

Father in heaven,
Hallowed be Your name.
Your kingdom come;
Your will be done
On earth as it is in heaven. (Matthew 6:9–10) 

The end of all things is near; therefore we should be clear minded and self-controlled for prayer. (1 Peter 4:7)

In the spirit of these passages, I pray for:

  • The poor and hungry 
  • The oppressed and persecuted
  • Those in authority
  • Peace among nations
  • Current events and concerns
