Elements of this petitioning:

God gives us the privilege of being His co-workers in redeeming and transforming His creation, and we can do this by intercessory prayer that is done POWERFULLY.




“I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone--for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness” (1 Tim. 2:1-2).  Not only our president, but our legislators, judges, governors, ambassadors, cabinet members, mayors, and all others involved in the government need our prayers.  Their decisions affect for good or evil not only our lives, but also the lives of hundreds and millions of other Christians and non-Christians.  So we ask the Lord to reveal His will to them, to give them God-fearing advisors so that they will gain wisdom, to protect them fro assassins, and to grant them health and family harmony.


Political leaders in other nations also need our prayers.  We should not think that just because they are more powerful than we are that our prayers will be of no effect, for “The king’s heart is in the hand of the Lord; He directs it like a watercourse wherever He pleases” (Prov. 21:1).




“Arise, Lord!  Lift up your hand, O God.  Do not forget the helpless” (Ps. 10:12).


Many people have been hungry and homeless all their lives; innocent victims of hate, political greed, famine, or war.  Some have seen their homes reduced to rubble by enemy shells, others have been forced from their homelands and have nowhere to go and nothing to feed their starving children.


Boat people are brutally attacked by pirates.  Other refugees, crowded into dismal tent cities, wait long, hopeless years for sponsors.  Behind the Iron Curtain, Christians worshipped underground for fear of imprisonment, secretly sharing precious pages torn form a forbidden bible to nurture their faith.


We should plead with our compassionate Savior to have mercy on all such suffering people.  WE can ask Him to keep alive in us the desire to share, the willingness to sacrifice.  We need Him to show us, who have been give so much, how we can help the oppressed.



“And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well, the Lord will raise him up” (James 5:15).
