Daily Prayer Guide: Day 4

Praying for the Salvation of Your City

God WANTS your city to be saved, and your city NEEDS to be saved. God’s purposes are clearly stated in I Timothy 2:1-4, “First of all I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions and thanksgivings be made for ALL PEOPLE... this is good and is acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires ALL PEOPLE to be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth.” Our prayers saturate the city with seeds of God’s Word and the soaking of the Holy Spirit, who germinates and grows these seeds of God’s will into the plantings of His pleasure. As you PRAY then for the Salvation of your city, PRAY for:

• To generate authentic heart-life repentance for sin
