Week of Prayer – Day 1

This week our church is starting the new year with a week of prayer.  We’re going to have a daily focus topic.  I will post the content of our daily prayer guide if you want to pray along with us.  Focus topic for day 1 is our homes and families.  Here’s the guide.

Some Ideas to Get Us Started Praying for Our Homes

  • pray for a God-focus in our homes
  • pray for men to lead their families spiritually
  • children to hear the gospel from their parents
  • children to see the gospel in their parents
  • families to be committed to coming to worship
  • for our children as they go to school (protection from the world’s influence, God to use them as witnesses)
  • husbands to love and lead their wives as Christ loves and leads the church
  • wives to follow their husband’s leadership
  • protection from Satan and the world’s influence
  • that our homes would be fertile soil for raising children who love God and want to change the world for Christ

Some Scriptures to Pray for Our Homes

  • Exodus 20:12
  • Deuteronomy 6:6-8, 31:12
  • Joshua 24:15
  • Psalm 32:8; 103:17; 127:3-5
  • Proverbs 22:6; 31:30
  • Ephesians 5:21-6:4
  • Titus 2:1-6
