BIBLE BASED PRAYERS

Pray for the rulers of our nations: “I exhort first of all that supplications (Takinnah), prayers (Tafillah=self-examination), intercessions (bakkashot) and thanksgiving (Hodaya) be made for all men, for kings and those in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence.

6. Pray for windows of opportunity to open to proclaim the gospel: Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful, as you pray also for us, that God may open to us a door for the word, so that we may proclaim the mystery of Christ, for which I am in chains. Pray that I may declare it clearly, as I should.…Colossians 2:2-4

9. Ask for empowerment of the Holy Spirit to heal the sick and deliver the demonized: If a son asks for bread from a father, will he give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent instead of a fish? Or if he asks for an egg, will he offer him a scorpion? If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him!” Luke 11:11-13.
