Here is the last installment of our prayer lists. I trust that you will have found these helpful and that you will pull the out often.

Praying for your City

  1. That God would bless your city and make it a safe and prosperous place for families to freely live, grow, worship, and serve Him with their lives. (Ps. 122:6-9; 3 John 2)
  2. Raise up strong pastors and healthy churches throughout the city to be a light and a spiritual force for good. (Matt. 5:16; Acts 15:4)
  3. Open the eyes of believers with hearts of love and compassion for the lost. (Matt. 9:27-28; John 4:35; Rom 10:1)
  4. Unite local pastors in prayer for one another and for revival and restoration in their city. (Col. 4:3; 2 Tim. 1:3)
  5. Unite churches in prayer, the preaching of the Word, and in serving the needs of their city. (2 Tim. 4:1-3; Titus 3:14)
  6. Give our leaders guidance and understanding, and help them fear God rather than man. (Deut. 10:12; James 1:5)
  7. Replace poor, corrupt government leaders with strong, godly leaders who will honor God and serve the people wisely, justly, and unselfishly. (Ps. 101:7-8; Micah 6:8)

  10. Rebuke satanic influences and control over the city, and overcome any strongholds of the enemy with the gospel, prayer, and the blood of Jesus. (Eph. 6:12-20; Rev. 12:11)
  11. Replace corrupt laws and standards with just and godly ones. (Deut. 16:19-20)
  12. Strengthen the marriages, parenting, and families in the city. (Ps. 112:1-9; 128; Eph. 5:22-6:4)

This Week’s Verse to Memorize: Who is wise? Let him understand these things. Who is prudent? Let him know them. For the ways of the Lord are right; the righteous walk in them, but transgressors stumble in them. – Hosea 14:9
