Have you ever wondered how to pray effectively for yourself, your church, its spiritual life and soulwinning activities? These prayers will bless you but also turn you into a powerful praying person for your church and family. In fact you can use them for any group of people or any person. We triumph as we pray.
The church can only triumph on its knees, as it cries out to God. I like to challenge believers to take their responsibility to pray the purpose of God into their lives and the house of God. Things can be changed if we will pray in the change.
Touch our hearts for the lost
Romans 15:18-19 (HCSB)
18 For I would not dare say anything except what Christ has accomplished through me to make the Gentiles obedient by word and deed, 19 by the power of miraculous signs and wonders, and by the power of God’s Spirit. As a result, I have fully proclaimed the good news about the Messiah from Jerusalem all the way around to Illyricum.
Romans 15:18-19 (NLT)
18 Yet I dare not boast about anything except what Christ has done through me, bringing the Gentiles to God by my message and by the way I worked among them. 19 They were convinced by the power of miraculous signs and wonders and by the power of God’s Spirit. In this way, I have fully presented the Good News of Christ from Jerusalem all the way to Illyricum
Father, I present these requests to You in the name of Jesus
- Father, in the name of Jesus, I ask you that zeal for your house may consume me.
- Oh Lord, give me a passion for the lost.
- Father, I pray for myself and every member of our church, break our hearts for people who are far from God.
- Lord, stir each one to embrace their call as soulwinners. Remove every reluctance to win souls.
- My Father and my God, change our hearts so we will personally commit to the conversion of our generation even as Paul did.
- Lord, help me to bear fruit in evangelism.
- I ask You Father that I may find joy in winning souls.
- Deal with all our hearts, that soulwinning become a priority for us.
- Father, give us the insight to operate in miraculous signs and wonders and by the power of the Spirit.
- Deliver us Lord from passivity and every weight that holds us back, that we might successfully carry the good news throughout the territory assigned to us.
Give us a heart for God
Colossians 2:6-15 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)
6 Therefore, as you have received Christ Jesus the Lord, walk in Him, 7 rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, overflowing with gratitude.
Colossians 2:6-15 (NLT)
6 And now, just as you accepted Christ Jesus as your Lord, you must continue to follow him. 7 Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.
Father, we bring the following petitions before You in the name of our Lord Jesus.

- Father, let the fear of God overwhelm every man and woman in this church.
