Beginning with our nearest relatives, we bring the needs of our family members to the Lord.  As much as possible, we find promises from God’s word that apply to them and ask the Lord to fulfill those promises.  We reach out further to the extended family, to friends, co-workers, neighbors, and members of our church family.  When we don’t know their specific needs, we can pray with Paul that Christ may dwell in their hearts through faith, that they may be rooted and established in love, may have power to grasp the love of Christ, and may know His love and be filled with the measure of the fullness of God (Eph. 3:17-19).




“The Lord is...patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance” (2 Peter 3:9).


Our heart’s desire is that all our friends and loved ones be saved (Romans 10:1).  So we pray that God will send into the lives of our unsaved family members and friends the message or messenger that will cause them to turn their lives over to Christ.  We ask the Holy Spirit to remove the veil from their eyes.


We also petition for immature Christians and those who know Christ as Savior but are not walking with Him and not using their lives in His service, consequently missing the best He has for them.




“And pray for us, too, that God may open a door for our message, so that we may proclaim the mystery of Christ, for which I am in chains.  Pray that I may proclaim it clearly, as I should” (Col. 4:3-4).


Our own pastors and church staff deserve and need our faithful prayers.  In addition, we intercede for home and foreign missionaries; radio and television ministers; Christian teachers, speakers, and counselors; Bible translators and distributors; youth pastors and campus pastors; those who work in prisons, hospitals, relief organizations, child welfare agencies, and others.


When we can we pray for these people by name, asking the Lord to strengthen them for their daily responsibilities, to use them to spread the gospel, to bring healing and wholeness to those who suffer.  We pray for Christians who are in important and highly visible positions of leadership, asking that they be kept from the temptations  that accompany popularity and success.




“Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world” (James 1:27).
