Lord, give us a heart for 24/7 prayer in our city. Like Zinzendorf, make us into men and women who are fervent in prayer and are committed to radical holiness. Teach us to walk in unity, and help us to do everything in love. As we pray for 24/7 prayer, give us expectant hearts. Help the churches in our city grow in prayer and commitment. Make the Church of [Name your city] a praying church. We long to do great exploits for Your glory. Help us to align ourselves with Your heart. Let prayer and praise permeate our city.
As we begin to lay the foundations for 24/7 prayer here, make us steadfast and persistent in prayer. Help us to build a foundation that is deep and strong. Keep us from growing weary in well doing. Help us to have realistic expectations and understand that it takes time and patience. Help us to be faithful. Teach us to pray your Word individually and corporately. Give our city a unified vision for day and night prayer, and teach us to seek You in prayer together. Help our churches to grow in prayer, intercession, and worship.
We thank You for being our faithful intercessor who will help us. You will give us guidance all along the way. Thank You that Your peace rules in our hearts. We thank You for the House of Prayer that You will establish in our city. You will give us the burning, driving vision to go deep with the foundation. You will enable us to pursue the deeper lifestyle of abandonment to You and Your vision for our city. We give You all the praise and glory for all that You will do. “We give thanks to you, O God, we give thanks, for your Name is near” (Psalm 75:1a). In Jesus’ name, amen.
Verses to Memorize
By the grace God has given me, I laid a foundation as a wise builder, and someone else is building on it. But each one should build with care. For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 3:10-11).
