Prayer Spotlight

When I pray, I often feel like I am shining a spotlight on the people I am praying for. By shining that spotlight, I am asking God to send angels to those people and respond to their needs.

While it's easy to remember to pray for people we love, it's important also to pray for organizations helping people in our community. As we pray for an organization, we are able to cover so many more people with our prayers. As individual intercessors, we can't pray for every person in our community. But if we focus strategically on the organizations God leads us to pray for, we can cover many more people through our prayers.

The organizations that serve our communities represent the hands and feet of Christ, reaching out to help those in need. Even through secular organizations, individuals can encounter God's love and grow in their God-given identities. Our prayers can help those transactions of the heart take place.

In my blog, I hope to highlight many such organizations and talk about effective ways to pray for the people they are impacting and the work they are doing.

Praying for organizations is a great way to spend time together as a family or as a community prayer group. 

If you would like to learn about different organizations who are helping people in communities like yours; learn how to pray effectively and strategically through prayer points; pray together with others for these organizations and the populations they serve; and suggest other organizations to pray for; you can find these blog posts here:
