What Should We Pray for at Prayer Meetings?

The prayer meeting is chiefly to focus on things we need – big things! 

Spurgeon said that we can prayer for gigantic things (revival in the whole country) and the small things (Tommy’s bruised knee) and we often miss the BIG things: 

  • For the pouring out of the Holy Spirit 
  • Conversions in our neighborhoods
  • Our next door neighbors,
  • Work colleagues 
  • Pray for opportunities to present the gospel

We must also pray for the church and it’s ministries 

  • For protection one the church
  • Healing prayer
  • Gendemi / Tanzania / Missions / Alison
  • Ask Anything
  • Women’s Bible Study
  • Wednesday night Bible Study
  • Sunday Morning service / Bicker with the Vicar / Adult education 
  • Children and youth
  • Marina evangelism
  • Read the Bible Together
  • Marriage Savers
  • Worship
