• Ask God to reveal to you what he wants you to pray about and to help you pray earnestly and persistently.
• Pray that God will cause his church to grow strong in prayer and be effective in ministry.
• Pray that men, women, boys, and girls will be happy to be enlightened and empowered of the things of God.
• Tell God that you are available to pray earnestly and persistently about anything that He lays on your heart and that you will listen for His direction. Now listen for God’s directions.
• Pray for the Holy Spirit to bring victory over all unrighteousness.
• Pray for the Arts and Entertainment Industry-that God will inspire artist and those in the entertainment industry with creativity and wisdom that reflect God’s beauty and truth; pray for salvation of those in the industry; and that those who come to follow Christ will follow Christ with courage and take a stand for Jesus.

Spiritual Rise Act
Before you make requests of God, ask Him what He wants you to pray for in each case. Then pause to listen for the Spirit’s prompt. Pray as lead by the Spirit.
