Daily prayers will diminish your cares. More things are wrougt by prayer than this world knows. Alfred Lord Tenneyson.

Evening, and morning , and at noon, will I pray and cry aloud; and he shall hear my voice Psalm 55:17

Pray for household salvation for family, friends, your boss, co-workers and the next door neighbor you cannot stand. Pray for salvation for those who are lost and do not know Christ. Our prayers will cause the Spirit of God to draw them to Himself. In Revolution on Our Knees: 30 Days of Prayer for Neighbors and Nations by David and Kim Butts they urgently stress “Consider how many people are lost to the prince of darkness because no one has prayed that their lives would respond to a beckoning Father? I have no doubt that prayer is the front line strategy for missions. We may never know until heaven how many lives have been opened to receive Christ because of our prayers”.

Pray for the deliverance from violence that steals the lives of our children and families. In major cities our children and youth have suffered violence. We continue to pray for the children and teachers who lives were violently taken at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newton , Connecticut. Pray for the mother in Chicago who has lost four sons to violence and death. Four sons ! You are devasted by one! Lord , we should be crying out like the mourning women in the Bible. In Jeremiah 9:17 it states”This is what the LORD Almighty says: “Consider now! Call for the wailing women to come; send for the most skillful of them”.

The children of Israel were about to be taken in bondage to Babylon. The prophet Jeremiah said send for the mourning women. They were to weep and wail and to mourn in sackcloth. Their purpose what to be an alarm system to wake up everybody around them. They were to call out, the devil is destroying us! Death is on its way! They were God’s warning shout to His people. These mouring women were to use the power of prayer and wailing before the Lord to destroy the power of Satan over God’s people by waking them up and calling them to a mourning of repentance. Today you- mother, sister, daughter or father can join in corporate prayer to open your mouth and cry out and pray against the evil of violence. Then when we hear the Lord’s direction, we can get up and put “feet on our prayers” to do what He tells us to do.
