  4. All your works praise you, Lord; we, your faithful people, extol you.

Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and your dominion endures through all generations. (Ps. 145:10-12)

Pray for Christ to renew your mind as well and to grant you victory over Satan’s schemes. (1 John 2:15-17)
  13. The Christian life is no walk in the park; rather, it is a race for an eternal reward. Pray for the Lord to make you into a man who disciplines himself and, like an athlete, stays in the race striving for the crown. (1 Cor. 9:24-27)
  14. Men are responsible for the spiritual atmosphere in their homes. The well-being of their families will depend on how grounded these men are in God’s Word and its principles. Be a student of Scripture, and pray that the joy of the Lord will irradiate all you are and do. (Deut. 11:18-19)

  16. It certainly is a blessing if a man is successful in his work. If this is your case, be thankful and pray that you will keep God’s priorities as it relates to your family and the values of his kingdom. What really matters in life is not what we have or do; rather, it is who we are in God’s eyes. (Luke 12:20)
  17. When a fellow Christian is caught in a sin, don’t be too quick to judge. Try instead to restore him gently as you pray for wisdom (Gal. 6:1). Remember that you are also a sinner, solely saved by God’s grace. Give thanks to God for his limitless mercy.
  18. The apostle Paul taught his friend Timothy how the Lord’s servant should behave (2 Tim. 2:24). Pray that God will help you to live your life accordingly.

  25. The joy of Jesus is attractive to a confused and hurting world (John 17:13). Pray that as godly men, we will manifest the joy of Jesus as the fruit of his Spirit to this broken world.
  26. The secret to a joyful, radiant, victorious Christian life is found in John 17:23, where Jesus prayed, “I in them, You in Me, that they may be made perfect in one.” By this, the world sees Jesus in us so the world may know that God sent him. Pray that we will let Jesus live his life in us.
  27. Forgive me, Lord, when I am trusting in my own abilities instead of submitting my will, mind and emotions to your Holy Spirit. Please strengthen me when I am weak. Correct me when I am wrong, and sharpen me when I am dull. (Eccles. 10:10)

  29. Dear Lord, modern culture rebels against the teaching of your Word. As man, I have become insecure about my role in marriage and family.

  30. Dear Lord, you have created man to be a responsible administrator of the gift of life. But so many times the impulses of nature and the urging of my flesh lead me into temptation. Please grant me the ability to discipline myself and to honor you in all I think, speak and do. (Job 31:1)
