Prayer Challenge

I was recently convicted by God about my prayer life. It’s not that I wasn’t praying because I was. But I wasn’t allowing myself to pray what God wanted me to pray. See I wanted to pray for specific people, intercede on their behalf. Lift them up and cover them. Which is all find and dandy, but God wanted me to take it one step further and pray through the seven key areas of our nation. For those of you who have no idea what the seven key areas are, they are the areas that have the most influence on our nation as a whole: Family, Government, Education, Media, Church, Business, Military. They are usually brought to the forefront during the National Day of Prayer which is always the first Thursday in May.

I always pray about all of those things on that day… and some of those things more often than others the rest of the time… but God wants me to pray for all of those areas ALL of the time NOT just one day a year… so I was challenged to pray through all of those areas everyday for a week. and it was amazing! I started off praying for how these areas effected me, The next day I prayed for my city and how these things effected it, the next day I ended up praying for the city of Chicago… and every day I was reminded to pray through these areas because our nation needs to be changed.

That’s were the challenge comes in… I challenge you my wonderful readers, subscribers, and random passer-byers, to pray through those seven areas: Family, Government, Education, Media, Church, Business and Military for one week… each day pray through those seven things just to show a unity like never before. Listen to what God is asking you to pray about concerning each of those areas and watch your hunger to see change and pray grow abundantly…

During the challenge and after I would love to hear from you, about what you’re praying for, what God wants you to pray concerning these areas, what you thought of the challenge, and what you got out of it… The challenge officially ends Next Monday (but of course you can do it longer) and I’ll write a follow-up blog post which may include some of your responses to these questions next week. Are you ready? Set. Go…
