As Christians and followers of Christ, we are called pray at all times both as individuals and in corporate settings such as small groups, churches, and online prayer groups. We are in the end of times and there is so much going on around us. People have turned their hearts away from God and have become disobedient to Him. We need to ask God to bless our city that we live in, and for healing for all the atrocities that are going on around us. We also need to pray for our leaders and for all who make our laws, asking God to awaken those who have a responsibility to govern us according to the will of God.
More than half of the world’s population live in cities and according to the United Nations by 2045 more than six billion people will occupy them.
We need to come to God in humbleness by acknowledging our sinfulness and yielding ourselves completely to Him. We need to drop our pride and recognize who we are in the sight of God as we absolutely have to depend on God for everything in or lives. Small groups such as online prayer groups are an effective way to join other and stay focused while we commit ourselves to pray.
When we live under the authority of the word of God and are faced with day to day dangers that surround us, we come to an understanding that He is our source of protection, care and the provision for our lives. Crying out to God for our cities indicates our inadequacies and our total dependency on Him to intervene in our nations. When we seek him in this fashion, He hears us and delivers us from all our fears and troubles. Read the online bible here.
