When God's People Pray to Change the Country

When God's People Pray to Change the Country
Are you concerned with the state of the world? The nation? Your state? Your city? Let’s begin with prayer to make a difference. Let’s pray intentionally for a change. The bible assures us that God hears every prayer and sees each tear. (2Kings 20:5) He hears the fervent prayer of his child. (James 5:15-16)

Pray trusting that we will see God's power.

  1. Start at home:
    Pray for the Holy Spirit to reveal any unknown sin. Repent of each sin. Express your desire to pray for your town and ask him to show you specific places that need prayer. Pray for ways to show God's love to your neighbors. Then follow his leading.
