Relentless prayer is a relentless pursuit in seeing God’s will done on earth.
“Real prayer is sincere. The words prayed are genuine; not vain repetition.
Real prayer is filled with humility, recognizing the One whom they are talking to. God is Sovereign and on the throne. He is in control over everything; and He has invited us to talk to Him whenever we want to.” – excerpt taken from Revival of the Hearts by Alysa VanderWeerd.
8 individuals died at the Travis Scott concert on November 5. – Praying for healing for the families of those who lost their lives at the Travis Scott concert. The 8 people, one as young as 14 , died, as they were crushed by a stampede of people who surged toward the stage. Praying for Travis Scott’s salvation, for him to hear about Jesus Christ, repent of sin and accept Christ into his heart. And praying for other musicians to care about the crowd that looks forward to going to their concerts.

“You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.” Psalm 16:11 NKJV
Any workplace – Praying for employees and bosses, freelancers, and those who influence to have integrity in their work, caring for others – loving their neighbors as themselves, loving God; for difficulties in the workplace to be dealt with and the right thing done, for interpersonal issues to be handled tactfully, for people to realize there is One God and He is the Master of all whom everyone will report to.
“Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people. Remember that the Lord will give you an inheritance as your reward, and that the Master you are serving is Christ. But if you do what is wrong, you will be paid back for the wrong you have done. For God has no favorites. Masters, be just and fair to your slaves. Remember that you also have a Master – in heaven.” Colossians 3:23- 4:1.
Abba! We lift up the families whose children, siblings, nieces, and nephews died at the concert this past Friday and we ask for Your healing touch. If they do not know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, praying for their salvation. And we extend that, Lord, to anyone who has recently lost a loved one either by tragic accident or illness or murder and we ask that they sense Your comfort, and rest in You. You love Your people and hate death. Love the verses, Lord, that say “O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ” – 1 Corinthians 15:55-57 KJV. We thank You, God, for victory in Christ. We praise You for Your truth that holds our mind steady, no matter what is before us.
Praying, King, for all those in the workplace to live lives of integrity working unto You; not cutting corners; grateful for their jobs; an overflow of genuine positivity from Christians, not negativity, seeing situations in the right light of Christ; Christians witnessing to others with the love of Jesus Christ; and Christians ready to share when their coworker asks questions. You see everyone who is struggling, and You have placed Your people where they will be most effective for You. Praying for hearts and minds to be sensitive to Your voice and Your leading; to recognize when it’s not You and to resist any temptations from the enemy. Thank You Lord for all that You are going to do – we praise You in advance, knowing You are faithful to keep Your promises and all of your promises lived truly exemplify the rich and satisfying life Jesus brings to Christians.
Lord, You see all, know all and You see those who need to be delivered from trying situations; who don’t need something to pacify the difficulty. They need clear deliverance, as the situation is unhealthy for them. And so we ask for that deliverance. There is a time when we endure difficulty and a time when that difficulty needs to be removed. You alone know what is best for each individual. So we ask for Your will to be done in the lives of Your people. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
