(Make Positive Changes In Your Country Through Prayer)

TO THE BIBLE: 1 Timothy 2:1-2 NIV
“I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people—for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.”

As a young person, you must pray earnestly for your country. Why pray for your country, you ask? Because that’s what God’s Word instructs us to do! In Luke 18:1, Jesus said people should always pray and not give up. So don’t get weary of praying for your country. That’s one sure way to get the kind of changes you desire in your nation to happen.

The Bible says Elijah prayed that there would be no rain, and the earth was without rain for three-and-a-half years. He prayed again, and the heavens supplied rainfall. How did he do it?

Through the earnest (heartfelt, continued) prayer of a righteous man, which makes tremendous power available, dynamic in its working! (James 5:16 AMPC).

To change things in your country through prayers, you have to pray the kind of prayer Elijah prayed: earnest, heartfelt and continued prayer. This is a sustained kind of prayer that is marked by a deep feeling of conviction. You don’t just pray it once and stop; you continue seriously and earnestly until you achieve your purpose for praying.

For example, you can pray for a greater influence of the Gospel in your country; you can pray specially for a change in your country’s laws that don’t favour the spread of the Gospel.

Pray in a heartfelt, continued manner for the government officials, lawmakers, and decision-makers, that the Lord will grant them the wisdom and courage to do what’s right and necessary for the furtherance of the Gospel at all times. Don’t give up praying for your country. Continue in earnest prayer until you achieve your desired objective in prayer!

Dear Father, I pray that there’ll be continued progress and development in my country. I ask for the supply of your grace to all the leaders and the wisdom to know and do what is required for my nation to experience growth and peace, according to your good intent, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Ephesians 6:10-24, Isaiah 31-32
