1 Timothy 2:3
HOW TO PRAY
1 Timothy 2:4 He wants all people to be saved and come to a knowledge of the truth.
Our God wants all people to receive salvation. He is burdened for the lost and desires none to perish. Pray that God fills you with His burden for the lost. Take some time to pray for the salvation of the lost. Let’s not just focus on our own family members, but pray also for our neighbors, work colleagues, the region of Tampa Bay, governing officials, and all those in our circles of influence.
John 14:6 Jesus answered, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
There are not many paths to God, only one. Jesus is the only way. Pray for truth to be revealed to those who are still trusting in other ways to reach God, either through good works or believing in other gods.
2 Corinthians 4:4
The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.
Pray that every way the enemy has tried to blind unbelievers of the gospel, that the veil will be removed, that God will convict unbelievers of their sin, and draw them to repentance.

• Acts 1:8
HOW TO PRAY
As Jesus was walking beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon called Peter and his brother Andrew. They were casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen. Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.” At once they left their nets and followed him.
Christ saves our soul so we can spread the Good News. We are saved to serve! God has freed us from sin to serve Him.
Pray that God will teach you and other believers to become fishers of men, that we will be able to share the gospel not just with family and friends, but with those in your community.
You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
Pray for your brothers and sisters of The Crossing Church that we would have boldness and courage to step out and share the truth of the gospel. Command the spirit of fear to leave our lives.
Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.”

Pray for a restoration of the old paths in our lives which include, but are not limited to: faith, fasting, forgiveness, baptism of the Holy Spirit, Gifts of the Spirit, hunger for God’s word, prayer, obedience to God’s word, and freedom from demonic oppression.
These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.

Pray that we will once again feel His love, acceptance, belonging, and hear His voice.

He went on: “What comes out of a person is what defiles them. For it is from within, out of a person’s heart, that evil thoughts come—sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance and folly. All these evils come from inside and defile a person.”

“Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.”
Pray that we all as believers inspect what we are building on. Are we building on the rock based on obedience and direction from God, or building on sand?
