What should you pray for at prayer meeting?
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
