Next we pray for all those who are ill physically or mentally, and also for those who are wounded in spirit, grieving the death of a loved one, stinging from the rejection of divorce.  We think of those who experience family turmoil due to infidelity, unemployment, rebellious children, drug and alcohol addiction or other heartaches.  Naming these persons specifically, we ask God to send them relief and comfort, and to use their sufferings to bring them closer to Him.




“You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed.  Such things must happen but the end is still to come.  Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom.  There will be famines and earthquakes in various places.  All these are the beginning of birth pains” (Matt. 24:6-8).


Media reports of erupting volcanoes, floods, earthquakes, and famines pointing out man’s helplessness in the face of nature’s fury.  Repeated brutal murders impress on us the depth of man’s sin and depravity, and tragic deaths in crashes remind us of life’s brevity.


In our prayers we ask God to speak clearly in these disasters, causing people to turn to Him as their only sure refuge.  We also ask Him to show mercy to the survivors of these tragedies and to use these events to bring many people repentance and faith in Christ.


Newscasts remind us to pray as well for national elections and peace talks for favorable weather and good harvest for cessation of pollution and for protection from nuclear holocaust, for equality in race relations--indeed, for any worthy issue.




“...if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear form heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land” (2 Chron. 7:14).  Having viewed a world groaning from a load of sin and its awful consequences, we are moved to pray for revival--that will begin in our own lives and homes, spread to our churches, and then to our schools, workplaces, and society as a whole.


We pray for a movement of the Holy Spirit to convict the world of sin and bring about a re-awakening in churches that will result in greater interest in and loyalty to the Word of God.  And we pray for a rededication of individual Christians to a deeper walk with the Lord and a greater longing for Jesus’ return in glory.




“I thank my God every time I remember you.  In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy...I have you in my heart....” (Phil. 1:3,4,7).
