The Power of Prayer

June 5, 2020

Our dependence on Almighty God is critical in these times of pain and heartache as we observe our nation and our communities. Family Life ministries has offered the following prayers that believers must bombard heaven with. Please join us as we pray these together.

1. Confess and lament.

  • In humility – confess our own sin, the sins of our nation, and their effect on the Body of Christ.
  • The sin of racism that continues in our systems and in the hearts of people.
  • Our indifference, our lack of unity, and our lack of compassion within the Body of Christ.
  • Lament – the evil, the injustice, the hurt, the fruit of the evil one who came to steal, destroy, and kill.

“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9).

“Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known” (Jeremiah 33:3).

2. Pray for injustice to end.

  • That all would experience that they are made in God’s image – from birth to death. All humans have infinite value, and therefore, all should experience this relationally and in our institutions and societal fabric. 
  • Pray for the economic, government, and justice systems – that they would express God’s heart for His created people.

3. Pray for our leaders at every level of our country.

  • For wisdom and compassion in their decisions. 
  • That they would lead in a manner reflecting value for human dignity and life.

4. Pray for renewal and revival.

  • For God’s Spirit to move powerfully, transformationally, broadly, throughout our country, in our churches, and among His people.
  • Pray for His Kingdom to come on earth as it is in heaven. 
  • Pray for fruit among us, His people, that express this movement of His Spirit.

5. Pray for unity.

  • Among the body of Christ. 
  • For solidarity of expression in love and righteousness.
  • That we would lean in to one another as followers of Jesus to learn, understand, and empathize. That we would be the visible answer to Jesus’ prayer in John 17:20-23.
