Pray For the World and the Global Church Psalm 102:15

Pray for Awakening Week 4 March 2018 (Ligonier)

THE WORLD AND THE GLOBAL CHURCH

Pray that the nations and their leaders would fear the name of the Lord and seek His glory, not their own.

Nations will fear the name of the Lord, and all the kings of the earth will fear your glory. — Ps. 102:15

Prayer by highplainsparson

O Lord, you sent your Spirit to produce a great harvest of souls in America and Britain during the 18th century. Men of you preached the glorious message of reconciliation far and wide, including such names as Whitefield, Edwards, Howell Harris, and the Tennents. Many souls were converted to Christ, and as result of their changed lives, people prayed for a great harvest of souls overseas. You raised up men and women to answer the missionary call like Adoniram Judson, William Carey, and Asa Thurston to far-flung places: India, Myanmar, Hawaii, and to the ends of the earth. The gospel of your Son Jesus Christ spread far and wide across the globe as the movement of your Spirit brought more laborers to the harvest. We pray for the churches that you have planted in all of these nations around the globe, that you would strengthen them in your word by your Spirit, and add new converts to their number. Empower and enable their witness for you, and protect them from persecution by their enemies, and yours. Smite their enemies to heal them by the balm of Gilead, or take them out of the way so that they do not hinder the spread of the gospel anymore. Let your love and transforming Grace be known where it is not yet known. Let every nation bow the knee to you and acknowledge you as Lord, as individuals, communities, and even nations submit to the loving rule of your Son Jesus Christ, kissing the Son. Let individual lives and families be transformed. Let new churches be planted. Let the morals and governments of communities and societies be reformed according to your word. Let the papacy, Islam, and every anti-Christian religion be discredited and shunned. Subvert irreligion and atheism, especially in the Western world. Let nations which have known you in the past repent and turn back from their wicked ways. Embolden your church to proclaim the Royal Dominion of Christ over the modern world. Let your glory fill the earth, expecting until that day when your son Jesus Christ will come to consummate his kingdom. Even so Lord, come. Amen.

Pray for the nations

Ligonier awakening prayer guide February 2018

WEEK 4

THE WORLD AND THE GLOBAL CHURCH

Pray that people in many nations would join themselves to the Lord by faith in Christ alone.

Many nations shall join themselves to the Lord in that day, and shall be my people. — Zech. 2:11

Prayer by Riley Fraas

O, Lord, we live in a glorious time when the prophecies that you spoke of through the prophets of old, of many nations coming to Christ are being fulfilled before our eyes. Hasten and spread the knowledge of the gospel far and wide to places in the world where it is not yet much known. Bless the endeavors of your people to proclaim Christ to the nations. Take away the fear that your people have even in persecuted areas of reaching those around them. Let them boldly proclaim you. Let them be as shrewd as serpents and as innocent as doves in their situations knowing how to provide for their own yet also give good news to a dying generation. You have made a people out of every nation. You’ve made people for yourself in Jesus Christ to worship and glorify you joyfully forever. This people is made up of every tribe, tongue, and nation. Millions have come to know you in Africa, Asia, South America, and in the Middle East. We praise you for these mighty works look up on them joyfully. Thank you for the blessed occasions that we have to enjoy fellowship and communion with your people in multiple nations as you grant opportunity. Bring down the forces of secularism and anti-Christian political thought that stand against your word and impede missionary endeavor. Open the doors so that your good news may go what has not gone before, and many more people will be reconciled to you their creator through Christ Redeemer of his election every nation, by the Holy Spirit bring them from death to life in Christ, so many millions of our experience. Send the gospel forth with power in nations which have known you in the past, but have grown increasingly secular, such as Europe, Australia, and Canada, and the United States of America. Please send more godly Christian missionaries to those regions. Let the world be ours in Christ, amen.
