Four Points Of Prayer

We need to be continually praying for our family, our city, our nation and the world every day.
Pray for your Family:
Job prayed for his family daily. Job 1:5 says, “Job would get up early in the morning and sacrifice a burnt offering for each of his children, thinking, "Maybe one of them sinned by defying God inwardly." Job made a habit of this sacrificial atonement, just in case they'd sinned.”
Pray for your City:
Jeremiah told the captives to pray for their city to have peace, Jeremiah 29:7, “Also, seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile. Pray to the LORD for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper."
Pray for your Nation:
Paul encouraged us to pray for the leaders of our nation. 1 Timothy 2:1-2, “Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, 2 for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence.”
Pray for our World:
Jesus taught us to pray for the world harvest. Luke 10:2, “Then He said to them, “The harvest truly is great, but the laborers are few; therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.”

Thanks for the follow Pastor Brad. Read your four points. Very good and to the point. I also like for point four, 2 Corinthians 7:14. If this world ever needed prayer, it is now. Some nasty times a comin. God will heal our land.

Again, thanks for the follow.
