The Prayer Networks Affinity Sphere is committed to help 60-plus Prayer Networks in the United States in their efforts to encourage Christians so to pray, and care and share that the lives of all will be touched by the love of Christ.
- Pray that increasing numbers of intercessors will step up to pray into God’s burdens for our nation.
- Pray that increasing numbers of believers in our land will become fully devoted to prayer.
- Pray that all of our prayers will be “in Jesus name”—in accord with God’s will, for his glory and for the advancement of his kingdom.
- Pray that all God’s people will learn to “pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this (the devil’s schemes) in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all God’s people” (Eph. 6:18).
- Pray that all of us, like the Good Samaritan in Jesus parable, will actively love our neighbors as we love ourselves.
- Pray that all the believers in our country will learn to seek not their own good, but the good of others (1 Cor. 10:24).
- Pray that non-Christians who live and work near us will be touched by the love and care of Jesus Christ through the words and deeds of Christ-followers.
- Pray that we may all learn to be wise in the way that we act toward outsiders; making the most of every situation. Let our conversations be always full of grace, seasoned with salt so that we may know how to answer everyone (Col. 4:5-6).
- Help us, Lord, in all our relationships to remember that “the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost,” including us (Luke 19:10).
- Give us, Lord, a passion for the lost like that of a shepherd who searches for and finds a lost sheep, and heavenly joy over each sinner who repents (Luke 15:3-7).
- Lord, give us a deep desire and heartfelt prayer for the unsaved— desire and prayer like that of Paul who said, “my heart’s desire and prayer to God for the Israelites is that they may be saved” (Rom. 10:1).
- So shape us spiritually, Lord, that we may always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks us to give the reason for the hope that we have; and to do this with gentleness and respect (1 Pet. 3:15).
