Prayer Points for November 2016

1. Heavenly Father, as I face my daily challenges, keep me ever mindful that you are the Almighty God. What seems hard or even impossible for me is certainly not too hard for you. You are the Creator of everything. If you could do all that, then you can surely provide for me. Therefore, I trust you to take care of me! (Jeremiah 32:27,17)

2. Oh Lord, we live in a chaotic world filled with conflict and turmoil. We need the lasting peace that you alone can bring. Lord Jesus, I am grateful that you are my peace. As the Prince of Peace, fill me with your peaceful presence. Thank you for your peace in the midst of the storms in my life. (John 14:27)

3. Lord Jesus, I acknowledge you as the source of all things. You are the source of my strength. Cause me to remember that although my flesh is weak, you are the strength of my life. I am now strong in the Lord. Therefore, I can do all things through Christ. (Philippians 4:13)

4. Almighty God, you have the resources and the ability to do anything. Therefore, you are well able to take care of me. Now that I am in Christ, you have promised to supply all my needs through Christ. So whenever I have a need, I am assured that the supply is on the way. My privilege is simply to wait patiently upon you and receive my supply. Thank you God for taking such good care of me! (Philippians 4:19)

5. Dear God, I thank you that when I sin you do not kick me out. The death of Christ has taken care of my sins once and for all. Therefore, you mercifully pick me up and restore me. So whenever I sin, I can boldly come to you acknowledging my sin, and receive your forgiveness. Thank you for extending unconditional love, unmerited acceptance, and abounding grace toward me! (1 John 1:8.9)

6. We can have confidence in our intercession because of God’s faithfulness. “By two immutable things [God’s character and His oath], in which it is impossible for God to lie, we might have strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold of the hope set before us” (Hebrews 6:18).

7. We pray for people of religions that respect the revelation of the Bible’s Old Testament. Since Christ came to fulfill the Old Covenant and establish the New, listeners must recognize the supremacy of the Gospel. “In that He [God] says, “A new covenant,” [Jer. 31:31] He has made the first obsolete. Now what is becoming obsolete and growing old is ready to vanish away” (Heb. 8:13).

8. We pray to God the Father, in the name of the Son, through the ministry of the Holy Spirit. Knowing the true God emboldens our faith. “And those who know Your name will put their trust in You; For You, LORD, have not forsaken those who seek You” (Psalm 9:10).

9. Men are called to be leaders, yet they need to appreciate the need for supernatural wisdom and guidance. King David prayed, “Lead me in Your truth and teach me, For You are the God of my salvation; On You I wait all the day” (Psalm 25:5).

10. Life has a way of draining our natural strength. Through prayer we tap into the power of God. “Wait on the LORD; Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the LORD!” (Psalm 27:14).

11. The world is facing tremendous challenges in many ways these days. We as Christians, however, have no need to worry. Instead we should cling to our Savior and thank Him for His wonderful promises. (Jeremiah 29.11)

12. As followers of Christ, and heirs to His glorious Kingdom, we have nothing to fear – ever (Jeremiah 1:8). Ask God to give you the ability to believe this with all your heart, and the strength to live your life accordingly.

13. God has given men a special responsibility to care for our families. We are responsible for their wellbeing. Pray that God will help us to love our families, and consider the needs of our spouses and kids as more important than our own desires. (1 Corinthians 11:3)

14. Pray that we as Christian men will be able to encourage and comfort our families and friends, no matter what circumstances we are facing – constantly reminding ourselves about the hope we have in God. (Psalm 146:5-6)

15. Spiritual maturity is always a result of Gods work in our lives. Let us pray today that we will be able to let God make us holy. Pray that other people may see glimpses of His glory in and through our lives. (Matthew 5:16)

16. As Christians, we are part of a Kingdom present and future. We will be in Christ’s future eternal reign, but we represent a King and Kingdom here and now. Pray for men to embrace this Biblical reality and be faithful ambassadors. (2 Corinthians 5:20)

17. Occasionally, when Jesus performed miracles He said; “The Kingdom of God has come to you.” Pray for men to be portals for God’s Presence and reign to touch other lives through them. (Luke 17:21)

18. Jesus is King of the true believer. Pray for men to acknowledge the rule of King Jesus in their hearts and submit to His reign. (Revelation 17:14)

19. The Bible says that those who follow Christ will “reign with Him on the earth” (Revelation 5:10). Pray for men to begin to reign now over sin and temptation as they yield to the indwelling Christ. (Colossians 1:27)

20. 2 Timothy 2:12 says if we endure we will reign with Jesus. Pray for men to have a spirit of endurance to be faithful and to “finish well”.

21. “Who runs from God in the morning will scarcely find Him the rest of the day.” Make time to be alone with the Lord, listen to His Word and be in prayer. “Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where He prayed” (Mark 1:35).

22. You and I know that the Christian life is no stroll in the park. We are in a spiritual warfare and our struggle is not against flesh and blood. (Ephesians 6:12) This is not for the fainthearted! Pray for the Victor, the Lord Jesus Christ to rule in your heart and mind today.

23. “Christianity is being squeezed out and minimized as an essential solution to the problems and challenges facing the world.” Pray in faith and trust that one day “The kingdoms of this world will become the Kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ” (Revelation 11:15)

24. “The battle for Biblical morality seems to be all but lost. Its replacement bears the worst of consequences for fallen mankind.” But the standard of God’s Kingdom is irrevocable. Pray that Christian men will be not be conforming to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of their mind. (Romans 12:2)

25. Discipleship of Christian men is one of the objectives of TWR/Champions Arise (CA). Even in churches with excellent preaching, men discipleship groups are rare. Pray for the initiatives in Brazil and Uruguay where the RTM’s are encouraging pastors and leaders and offer the discipleship material of Every Man a Warrior (EMAW). (2 Timothy 2:2)

26. Pray for the young generation of Christians, growing up now, when all biblical absolutes are being questioned and openly attacked. Pray for them to seek the Lord first and to experience the reality of Christ in their own life. Pray also for Christian men to be role models and guides to the next generation. (Psalm 78:5.6)

27. Because of the violent persecution by religious fanatics and terrorists, millions of Christians have become refugees. Pray for the Christian men who are in this predicament to cling to the Lord and to expect His guidance and help to make a difference in very dangerous and seemingly hopeless situations. (Psalm 121)

28. Pray that TWR’s broadcast for the persecuted Christians and Refugees in the Middle East and Africa will encourage many hearts. Pray also for the CA programs on the websites and now in English, Portuguese, Spanish and Russian to equip men as disciples of Jesus Christ.

29. Christian ministry depends on God doing it all the way. This is why prayer is so essential. The Lord Jesus charged his disciples to pray to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest (Matthew 9:38) Pray consciously for your role in the family, church and society and allow the Lord to make you an effective worker in His harvest.

30. The burden to govern and rule in a society filled with fear, hate and violence is beyond imagination. Men and women in leadership need supernatural wisdom. Therefore let’s request, pray, intercede and give thanks for those in authority. Lets be peacemakers and live our life in godliness and holiness. (1 Timothy 2:1.2)
