Prayer Points for April 2024

  1. Decision – “Do not be angry because of evildoers, nor envy those who do
    iniquity. Wait on the Lord and walk in his ways; he will exalt you so that you will
    inherit the land; the salvation of the righteous comes from the Lord; he is their
    strength in times of trouble. The Lord helps them and delivers them.”
    (Psalms 37:
  2. Worship – “How lovely are your tabernacles, O Lord of hosts!”
    (Psalms 84:1) Men, are the spiritual leaders of their homes and called to set an
    example and be with their families in the house of worship. – Lord, I pray that the
    love for You and the joy to fellowship with other believers be strengthened in
    the heart of every Christian man.
  3. Position – A correct understanding of the Lord’s Word leads to a pleasant
    and harmonious married life. The recipe is found in Ephesians 5.25 – “Husbands,
    let each of you love his wife, just as Christ also loved the church and gave himself
    up for her.” Lord, free us from our selfishness, make us to men who love our wife
    with your love.
  4. Directions – The GPS, (Global Positioning System) allows us to find
    direction and addresses and has become increasingly popular. And yet so many
    people still need to discover the final route in life. The Bible is God’s GPS to find
    eternal life. Learn how to use it. “Your word is a lamp to my feet; it is a light to
    my paths.” (Psalms 119:105)
  5. Just a call away – “Call upon me in the day of trouble; I shall rescue you and
    you will honor Me” (Psalms 50:15). When we lay our impossibilities into the
    almighty hand of God, He will act. He wants to change our affliction and concern
    in relief and times of praise.
  6. Sacrifice of Praise – “He who offers sacrifice of thanksgiving honors Me;
    and to him who orders his way aright I shall show the salvation of God”
    (Psalms 50:23). Giving thanks to God even before we can see His solution will
    strengthen our love and trust in Him. God will not put to shame those who wait
    for Him. (Psalms 25:3)
  7. Mercy – “Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful” (Luke 6:36) As God
    deals with us so should we deal with others. This is key to renew and strengthen
    relationships. Be a man who sees others through the eyes if God. He loves them
    and wants us to demonstrate His love to them.
  8. Administrator – “Do business with this until I come back” (Luke19:13b). All
    our possessions are entrusted to us by God. We should enjoy them, use, and
    invest them in God’s Kingdom as good and faithful administrators.
  9. Honor – Husband, be considerate and show your wife honor for she has the
    same part of the gift of life as you do. Your praying together should not be
    hindered. As you are a blessing to your wife you bring honor to God. (1Peter 3:7)
  10. Transformation – The Holy Spirit is eager to transform you into the image
    of Jesus Christ, but you have the power to decide how much influence the Holy
    Spirit will have on your life. Pray that you will be able to give your creator enough
    space in your life to transform you into His image. (Ephesians 5:18)
  11. Prayer – Right before Jesus was betrayed by Judas, he prayed for his disciples
    and for all future believers. (John 17:20). Pray today that more people will find
    Jesus as their Saviour and Lord and pray that He will help you being a good
    ambassador for the Kingdom.
  12. Fellowship – It is impossible to make a fire with only one piece of wood.
    You need several pieces to make a fire. Likewise, we need each other as
    followers of Christ. Give thanks to the Lord for the opportunity of having
    spiritual fellowship with fellow believers. (Acts 2:42)
  13. Answer to prayer – If you ask Jesus to save your neighbour, be aware that
    our Lord might ask you to go visit him or her on His behalf. Give Him thanks
    today that you, as a follower of Jesus Christ, are found worthy to act as His
    hands and feet in the world until He returns. (Isaiah 52:7)
  14. To lead – We men have been privileged of leading our families. Pray that
    Christian men will learn to yield to the abiding life of Christ (John 15) and allow
    His life to flow into even the smallest matters of personal integrity, that we may
    lead our families by example in private as well as in public, for His glory.
  15. Temptations – They come in all shapes and sizes, from what we consider
    “big sins” to what some label as “little sins”. Pray to be as sensitive to
    insignificant “little lies” as much as pornography and corporate theft. Jesus said:
    “He that is faithful in little is faithful in much, he that is unjust in little is unjust in
    much.” (Luke 16:10)
  16. Character – True character is who we really are in private. Pray to be
    consistent in private as well as in public, that your life will not be
    compartmentalized but that you will live for the eyes of the Lord. God said to
    Abraham: “Walk before Me and be perfect (mature, complete).” (Genesis 17:1)
  17. Worrying – Many men worry. Fear set in as we see unemployment rates
    rise, inflation increase, and as age approaches. Pray that you will cultivate a
    strong faith in the Lord as your Provider. While working hard and doing all you
    can to maintain a good work ethic and spending habits, trust first in the Lord.
    (Matthew 6:25-34)
  18. A good Name – Integrity and character are built over time but can be
    destroyed overnight. Value and protect the investments God has made into your
    life. Pray and be watchful to maintain a “good name” which is more to be valued
    than great riches. (Proverbs 22:1)
  19. Attitude – “Heavenly Father, it is hard to be thankful when there are so
    many negative things in the world. Nevertheless, Your will is for me to give
    thanks in all things. Therefore, since I am in union with Christ, I ask You to cause
    me to be thankful. I trust You to enable me to handle whatever comes my way.”
    (1 Thessalonians 5:18)
  20. Patience – “Oh Lord, too often I have become impatient. I confess, that in
    my impatience, I have tried to make things work by my human efforts but,
    inevitably I fail. However, Your Word tells me that I should pray and then simply
    do Your will. Please, cause me to step out boldly by faith as Your Spirit leads.”
    (Hebrews 10:35-36)
  21. Perfect Timing – “Dear Lord, sometimes I have been early and other times
    I have been late, but You are always on time. Lead me by Your Spirit to go when
    You say to go, to stop when You say to stop and to wait when You say to wait.
    Thank You, Lord, for enabling me to move with Your perfect timing!”
    (Galatians 4:4)
  22. A call to Worship – “Dear God, as the sovereign ruler of the universe, You
    alone are worthy of worship. I trust You to enable me to worship you in spirit and
    in truth. Cause me to worship You not only with my words, but also with my
    actions. Grant me the grace to willingly, instantly, and completely follow Your
    Spirit’s leading.” (Matthew 2:1-2)
  23. From Anger to Righteousness – “Dear God, everywhere I turn people are
    angry— me included. I understand that human wrath is not a solution. I repent
    of my human responses of anger, rage and wrath. I reject them in Jesus’ name.
    Cause me to have a righteous response to all of the negatives.” (James 1:20)
  24. Effective – “The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much”
    (James 5:16b) God wants for us to participate in His work. He invites us to pray
    for His Spirit’s leading in how we should pray. He will hear such prayer!
  25. The fear of God – “For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things.
    To Him be the glory forever. Amen!” (Romans 11:36). To the extent that we
    emerge ourselves in the Word of God we will also marvel about His might and
    holiness. Allow for the awe and the deep fear of God to help you fully surrender
    to Him.
  26. Love of enemies – “But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those
    who persecute you…” (Matthew 5:44). To do this is humanly speaking
    impossible. But Jesus demonstrated how such love works. When we are
    connected in Him, His power will enable us to obey God’s will and also love our
  27. Wealth – “Beware and be on your guard against any form of greed; for not
    even when one has an abundance does his life consist of his possessions” (Luke
    12:15). So many times, has the distribution of an inheritance pitted brothers
    against each other, because of greed. Allow for the story Jesus told to be a
    warning for you as well.
  28. Self-dominion – “That each of you should learn to control his own body in
    a way that is holy and honorable…” (1Thessalonians 4:4). Jesus was man like us
    but victorious over temptation, because He surrendered to God. We to can
    withstand the onslaught of temptation and control our impulses, by willingly
    submitting to Him.
  29. Consider – “Consider the work of God, for who is able to straighten what
    He has bent? In the day of prosperity be happy, but in the day of adversity
    consider. God has made the one as well as the other…” (Ecclesiastes 7:14). The
    ultimate purpose of our life is to live for God. Therefore pray to always stay close
    to Him no matter what.
  30. War – “You will be hearing of wars and rumors of war. See that you are not
    frightened, for those things must take place, but that is not yet the end”
    (Matthew 24:6). The world events prove that the return of Christ is imminent.
    Therefore, let us focus more than ever on our coming Lord and serve Him
    faithfully with great joy.
