March 2018 Prayer Focuses
Intercede for moral, God-fearing, pro-life, and pro-family men and women to be selected, supported, and find favor in local, state, and national campaigns. Pray for the Lord to reveal His choices, expose corruption, immorality, bribery, hidden agendas, and controlling persons or special interests. Intercede for the writing of party platforms.
Intercede that we, and all followers of Christ, be granted grace and wisdom to “discern the times” and to know what to do to advance the gospel and Kingdom of Christ (Mt. 16:2-3; 1 Cor. 2:14). Intercede for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit and anointing upon Church leaders, Christian public officials, and the Body of Christ, and for spiritual discernment (1 Ki. 3:9-13; 1 Cor. 2:14).
“God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble” (1 Pet. 5:5; Prov. 3:34; Is. 57:15). Pray for the Holy Spirit to convict you, then repent of any pride, arrogance, conceit, prejudice, pretense, and egotism. Pray that the Lord would grant grace to you and to all fellow believers in your area to fear God, walk humbly, and to “show true humility toward all men.” Pray for our leaders and public officials to desire and cultivate a life of service marked by humility (Tit 3:2; Mic 6:8).
