Daily Prayer Guide: Day 18

Praying for Your City’s Arts & Entertainment

Your city-region’s Sports, Arts and Entertainment provide rich sources of relaxation and refreshment, as well as employment and careers for artists and skilled performers. God is the Giver of all natural abilities, the Enabler to develop them and the Guide to use them in His purposes. In our society’s present fast paced living and pressure cooker culture, we need creative and constructive avenues for physical, mental and emotional renewal. God has promised that “He restores our souls” (Psalm 23:3), and “renews our strength” (Isaiah 40:31). Jesus said that He came to give abundant life (John 10:10) for human wholeness and cultural enrichment. Individuals, families, organizations and communities were all created with these needs. Your city, with its unique location, institutions and people giftedness, has rich endowments of recreation and relaxation resources. But licentiousness, libertinism and the pursuit of hedonism are NOT the purposes of God for entertainment. Let’s PRAY then for God’s right purposes to be lived out in your city’s Sports, Arts and Entertainment:

Sports

Arts

Entertainment

Parks, Swimming Pools and Recreational Areas

Pray for God’s blessing on sports, arts and entertainment activities in your community – especially in the Summer
