What should you pray for at prayer meeting?

Posted by

Joel Beeke in his excellent little book 'The Family at Church' tells us


''People should pray for things great and small. They should pray for the glory of God, the growth of His people, the conversion of sinners and worldwide revival. They should pray for their ministers and missionaries and theological students to be anointed by the Holy Spirit, for their office-bearers to be faithful, for the church to live in unity and peace, and for every church ministry and outreach to flourish and bear fruit a hundredfold. They should pray for the elderly, the lonely, the sick, and the youth. They should pray for troubled marriages, broken families, and prodigal sons and daughters. They should pray for governmental leaders, for the forsaking of national sins such as abortion and Sabbath breaking, and for a return of biblical truth and morality in the land. But they should also pray for smaller, personal prayer requests.....'' p70
