Are You Praying for YOUR City?

    Dear Father in Heaven,
    I pray that many hearts be open today to the Truth of the Gospel today as we go out ministering to others in Milwaukee! Your Light shine in their hearts; your Truth be planted in their spirits and in their minds that Jesus Christ is the only Way to salvation and a relationship with You!! Let Your Love and acceptance of them be conveyed in our demeanor; and they be drawn by the chords of love, as Your Word says! Your Holy Spirit convict them of their need for You. In Jesus’ name, AMEN

    Father, we CRY OUT for AMERICA and all of her beautiful cities. Bring us back to YOU.
    We cry for mercy as we bow our knees and repent of our wickedness. Especially for turning away from YOU and YOUR WORD! Please give us another chance to be that city on a shining hill, illuminating YOUR PRESCENCE and giving YOU all our thanks and praise!

    Lord God, the city of Dallas, Texas would not exist without your approval. Many followers of you Jesus dwell in Dallas but you know that darkness and wickedness still abound. Draw people to you Lord that a great spiritual awakening will begin and that many will choose You Lord to rule and reign over their lives. I pray for the leaders of Dallas that they will be men and women of integrity — followers of you Jesus in whose name I pray this prayer.

    Lord Jesus, I lift up to You in prayer today the United States Military Academy at West Point in New York and the two surrounding communities of Highland Falls and Fort Montgomery. I lift up the cadets and their families, the instructors, the military and civilian support staff at the academy and all their families, and all the religious ministries on post and in the surrounding churches. I ask for your protection over the entire community and for Your Name to be lifted up. I pray West Point will continue to uphold the principles upon which this great institution was founded: “duty, honor, country.”

    Lord, I lift up Las Vegas. So many have moved here, so many have left. Many houses are empty. Many jobs have gone. But You, Lord, remain the same and are fully able to meet the needs of your people. Raise up a strong church here that will preach the Word in and out of season, that will walk & worship in spirit and truth, that will do all things with integrity and humility. Reach to the empty hearts that dwell hear and reveal yourself to them. Be glorified in Las Vegas.

    God of all nations, King of all nations, I come to You from the nation of the USA, to bless You and thank You for Your watch care over everyone You have created. Today, Lord, I want to lift to You towns and cities in which I have lived: Rock Rapids, IA, Omaha, NE, South Sioux City, NE, Grand Island, NE, Flint, MI, Ann Arbor, MI, Byron, MI, Boston, MA, and Sebring, FL. Look upon the people of these places favorably, I pray, and pour out Your blessings upon them. Turn every heart to You. Cause every knee to bow and every tongue to confess You as Lord. Cause Your people in these places who are called by Your name to humble themselves and pray and seek Your face and turn from their wicked ways, so that You may hear their prayers and forgive their sins, and heal their lands. For Yours are the Kingdom, the power and the glory. In Jesus’ name I pray, amen.

    Father, I praise your name. I lift up the city of Middletown, NY and ask that you would encamp your angels around it. I pray that you would rid this city of crime, gangs, felons, and predators of any kind that would harm your people. I cover the city of Middletown, NY with the Precious Blood of Jesus to the north, south, east, and west. I lift up the city leaders, policemen, firemen, and all who would decide what is best for its citizens. I ask that you would choose the next mayor in the upcoming election this fall and that the person elected would make the city of Middletown to be a a model for all cities free of crime and a safe place to live and raise children. I pray for each and every resident and their families that they would come to know your Precious Son Jesus as lord and savior and that they would hunger and thirst for righteousness. Father bless Middletown, NY and its residents in Jesus’ name. Amen.

    Our Father, Most High God,

    Bless Grand Rapids, Michigan and forgive us for forgetting your mercies and kindnesses to us, for not taking the time to thank you, for putting our interests above yours, for putting our traditions above your Word.

    We lift you up and ask that you be enthroned in our lives and in our land. May our gates be lifted up to you and your purposes only and our doors welcome you as Lord and King and none other. May those who staff and support Prayer Central be blessed for their part in blessing Grand Rapids, Michigan.

    Heavenly Father,

    I pray this evening for the metropolitan Atlanta, Georgia area. It is home to so many people with whom You are well acquainted. There are many who are out of work here and many have lost their homes because of the economy. We are such a mix of nationalities and groups who have special interests so it makes it hard for everyone to get their needs met. Lord, You know what is needed most of all. We need revival. We need Jesus in the hearts of all the people. We need people to humble themselves to You. Lord, You know my church is getting involved with a new initiative to impact the city in some unchurched communities. Please show the leaders the best approach and help them to be successful beyond their imaginings. That can only happen with Your backing. All things are doomed to failure unless You are in them. So I ask for Your blessing on this project. Thank You for all the others who are bringing their cities up for prayer on this site. May You find favor with all our prayers for we know You care about the cities. I also pray for Your favorite city, Jerusalem. Please may there be peace there. Through Jesus, Amen

    I lift up my city, Carson City, Nevada which is the State Capitol. Lord I ask for the diversity of the churches in our city to be honored and I pray for unity and a coming-together as never before. Where there has been disunity in our government, I pray this will not spill over into the Church. I neutralize and bind the spirits of disunity and contention and release our churches and people to the wooing of You our Precius Holy Spirit. As our church does “Bless Our City” by giving away $10,000 worth of new goods to the people of our city, let it be a blessing and may it cause the salvation of souls in our area. Let the desert bloom as the Rose. Amen and Amen

    Lord, I lift up St. Louis to You and praise You for the work that has gone on and will continue to go on as the Name of Jesus is declared! The Gateway to the West will be the Gateway to Salvation for the lost, hurting people in this city. Unify churches and give wisdom to leaders and laymen in how to touch this city with the mercy, love, and deliverance from the God of all creation. Show believers how to reach their neighbors in the inner-city, the city, and the suburbs with forgiveness, hope, and destiny. Raise up workers for the harvest is ripe – those to pray, give, witness, and serve – spreading Your love across this region and out to the world! You are so mighty and through Jesus, we have overcome darkness. Thank you, Lord, for being the light in this city to draw all men, women, teenagers, and children unto You! I pray for the Rock the River tour under the Arch on August 2nd, 2009. Let this be a seed to reach a generation of young people with the reality of a loving Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. In his precious name, we pray. Amen!!!

    In the name of Jesus Christ, I claim the city of Williamsburg, Va. I pray for the churches to unify as the body of Christ. I pray for leaders of all denominations (pastoral or lay) to come together and bring the hope of Christ’s love to all those who are hurting. I pray for mindsets and strongholds to come down. I pray for indescribable joy to invade the lives of everyone who lives in this area. I pray for the harvesters that the Lord has hand picked and put in waiting to be activated. I pray for the Kingdom to invade and produce miracles in and through unlikely persons and situations…and all would know that the Lord was responsible..Glory to the King!!!

    Houston, Texas BELONGS to the Lord. I will declare and I “SEEK THE PEACE OF THE CITY” as you have directed in Your Word, Lord. Have YOUR way in the hearts of your pastors. I pray for repentance in the Church of Jesus Christ, a turning from dead works! A reinjection of Wisdom into the pastorship and among the elders. I ask for humility and brokenness in the hearts of the leaders. Weeping for our sin and the sins of our fathers. Forgive us God for our selfishness, our ambition, and the hardness of our hearts!!! Forgive us for the idolization of Religion!! Forgive us for doing injustice to the power of Christ’s resurrection, the shed blood of Jesus, and for failing to properly discern the BODY of Christ! Forgive us, O God! HAve mercy!! Pour out Your Spirit Lord! Revive Your Church!!! And bring her under Your merciful, protective wing again!
    Have YOUR way, oh God in the hearts of our homeless, the lost man, woman, and child, the adulterer, the thief, and those blinded by ‘religion’ but kept from salvation BE FREE in the name of JESUS CHRIST of Nazareth!!!! Make your face to Shine upon us!! Quicken us! RESTORE! I say RESTORE!! RESTORE!! We turn to You for ALL of our Provision. We will no longer be gods to ourselves. In the precious name of Jesus. Almighty Jesus, the Lamb. Amen

    Lord of all, Lss Vegas is avoided by many Christians but you have your eye on this international city. You can turn everything to your purpose. People come from all over the world. No matter why they think they are coming, you have given us visions of a world mission training center in this city with all its convention resources and fabulous airport. We are praying for a Christian book store and prayer chapel at McCarren Airport. We ask you to mulitply intercessors for our city and your world, Father! We are excited to see that you are moving in Nevada!

    Lord Father God creating of the universe, You have ordained that people would dwell in cities. In Psalm 107:4-7, it says, “They wandered in the wilderness in a solitary way; they found no city to dwell in. Hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted in them. Then they cried unto the Lord in their trouble, and He delivered them out of their distresses. And He led them forth by the right way, that they might go to a city of habitation.”

    Cities are so important to You, Father – more accurately, the people who live in the cities – that You have made a special eternal city for us. “By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went. By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise; for he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God.” Hebrews 11:8-10

    Father, today, I lift up the 2 small towns between which I live, and the larger city nearby: Burnsville, Spruce Pine, and Asheville. I ask You, Lord, to continue to bless the people in these places with an outpouring of Your Holy Spirit. Send the Holy Spirit to convict of sin, righteousness, and judgement. Send the Holy Spirit to break up the fallow ground of the hearts of people here. Send the Gospel forth in power, with signs and wonders following preaching. Fulfill Your Word that You will work with the ministers of the Gospel by displaying miracles and gifts of the Holy Spirit, according to Your own will. (Heb. 2:4)

    As the Gospel is preached to the poor, please bind up the brokenhearted, proclaim deliverance to the captives and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; proclaim the acceptable day of the Lord and the day of vengeance of our God; comfort all that mourn in Zion; give beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, and the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that Your people may be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that You might be glorified. (Isa. 61:1-3)

    I ask all this in Jesus’ name, amen.
