Creating a Prayer List

thAfter searching online I found some great information a making a pay list and I thought that it may help you all as you work on your individual list Prayer is not about a set of rules — it’s all about building our relationship with God. It’s about conversation, both expressing yourself and listening. You prayer list is for you and you do not have to share it with anyone unless you choose to. 
 Here are some suggestions for making your prayer time effective.
  1. First, decide where you want to keep your list — on paper, on your phone, or on a computer file.
  2. Second, start making a list of people you want to pray for and categorize those people/requests.
  •  Monday: family (parents, grandparents, siblings and their families)
  • Tuesday: friends (close friends, online friendships, other friends who have asked for prayer)
  • Wednesday: church family (pastor and his wife, Sunday school/age groups, current requests)
  • Thursday: salvation (loved ones, children of siblings/friends, witnessing opportunities)
  • Friday: missions (missionaries, church ministries, chaplains,)
    Saturday: government (salvation, wisdom, elections, – both state and federal)
  • Sunday: miscellaneous requests (everything else!)
  1. Finally, consider the best time for you to pray.
  2. The point is to establish a routine.
  3. And discipline yourself to practice intercession.
  4. Focus — don’t do two things at once.
  5. Get away; find a quiet place where you can unwind and be you. 
  6. God knows who you are — you don’t have to pretend.
Close with something like this: God, I ask you to reveal yourself to me. I want to know you, your dreams, your hopes, your concerns, your desires for my life. Please reveal yourself to me and supply me with the guidance needed to move into the next stage in my life.

  1. Awesome tips! I find it comforting to know I can send my prayers to places I can’t physically be. Intercession allows me to do that. I’m a firm believer in the power of prayer and my faith is strengthened each time a prayer is answered.
