Intercessory Prayer

Scripture Reference

1 Timothy 2: (Amplified Bible)

1 FIRST OF all, then, I admonish and urge that petitions, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be offered on behalf of all men,

2 For kings and all who are in positions of authority or high responsibility, that [outwardly] we may pass a quiet and undisturbed life [and inwardly] a peaceable one in all godliness and reverence and seriousness in every way.

3 For such [praying] is good and right, and [it is] pleasing and acceptable to God our Savior.

Mark 11:24 King James Version (KJV)

24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.

John 15:7 King James Version (KJV)
7 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.

Let us pray:                                               

Father God I come before You in the name of Jesus Christ, my personal Lord and Savior. First of all I ask that you forgive me for my sins just as I forgive those who have done me wrong. The Bible says in 1John 1:9 that if I confess my sins, Jesus Christ is faithful and just to forgive me my sins and to cleanse me from all unrighteousness.

Father, I pray there be peace in this world, there be peace in USA. The Bible says You are Jehovah Shalom, My Lord is Peace. It also says that Jesus Christ is the Prince of Peace. 

Lord Jesus, give wisdom to the leaders of my nation so they make wise decisions and take constructive actions so that we may pass a quiet and undisturbed life [and inwardly] a peaceable one in all godliness and reverence and seriousness in every way. My prayer is that the leaders are born again Christians who fear You and walk in obedience to Your commandments. 

Father of Glory, give the people of USA the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Jesus Christ. I pray the eyes of their understanding is enlightened that they may know what is the hope of His calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance is in the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of His power to us-ward who believe.

Lord I pray that there be spiritual growth, unity and understanding in all the churches in my nation. The people working for Your kingdom are anointed by the power of the Holy Spirit to teach, preach, heal, and perform signs and miracles in the name of Jesus Christ. You are their provider, protector, helper, comforter, advocate, counselor, healer and shepherd.

Master, next I want to bring Rhema Bible Church in my prayer. Let Your presence dwell here and lead us as the Chief Shepherd. Let Your will be done in my church and let Your purpose be accomplished through all the members. Use the entire congregation as vessels to bring glory and honor to Your name. Anoint the man of God, Pastor Hendry Latchman, to teach, preach, heal, and perform signs and wonders in the name of Your Son, Jesus Christ. Protect my Pastor and his family. Bless them spiritually, emotionally, physically and financially. The Bible says that those who honor Your Son, Jesus Christ, the Father will also honor them. Lord Jesus, bless every church member. Meet all their needs and special prayer requests. They are Your children and the blessings of Abraham belong to them. Satan, take Your filthy hands off my spiritual brothers and sisters and return to them seven times whatsoever You have stolen in the name of Jesus Christ. I cover all of them with Psalm 23, 27 and 91. You are their shepherd, helper and protector. Father I pray that if any of my brethren missed it somewhere, You forgive them for You are a merciful and loving God.

Finally Father I pray for all of my friends, family and relatives. The ones, who don't know You, open up their spiritual eyes that they may be enlightened to see the truth. I pray that the blind fold of religion, tradition and darkness is removed and the light of the Gospel of Jesus Christ shines through. Just as it is written in Ephesians 5:14 (NIV):

“Wake up, sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.”

Lord, the ones who do know You, I pray that they increase in their spiritual wisdom and understanding and grow in their Christian walk. Let the blessings of Abraham fall upon as they follow and abide in Your word. I’m praying they prosper in all aspects of their lives whether it is spiritual, emotional, physical or financial for this is the will of my God. Keep Your caring hands upon all of them.

Heavenly Father, I am so thankful for every person I have prayed for today. I praise and worship You on behalf of all of them. Just as I have asked, so I have believed and now I receive the answer in the wonderful name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
