Prayer is one of the most important spiritual disciplines. Without it, we can have no relationship with God, and yet it is the most basic way to get to know our Master and Creator.
My Family and Network of Friends
Create a prayer list of your family members, praying for them daily.

My Church and Community
Pray for the church’s planned evangelistic emphases for the next six months—things like VBS, revival services, or special music programs.

My Country and its Peoples
Pray for the nation. Mention the names of elected officials. Pray for the Lord to multiply your church’s outreach.

Pray for the diverse peoples of our nation and for the racial reconciliation that is possible only through salvation in Jesus Christ.

My World and its People Groups
Pray for those in your church who may be sensing God’s call to become part of the “limitless ministry teams” serving alongside our missionaries.

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 I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

Keeping a Prayer Journal

What is a prayer journal and why keep one? A prayer journal is a personal document in which you record your journey drawing closer to God. A journal is not a diary or a record of events. It is a testimonial on how God is working in your life.

A prayer journal:
– documents your Christian growth
– helps you develop a more personal relationship with God
– keeps your prayers “on track”
– reminds you of God's blessings

Journaling after reading or meditating on Scripture is a very good prayer practice. By keeping a record and reflecting on your journey, it is possible to see just how much progress has been made. Any notebook will do, but having one that is personal is most important.  Examples here offered by DaySpring.com.
