family as a whole, but for individual families within your
circle of influence that may be struggling.
Church – Pray for your churches and their leaders while
asking God to grant us wisdom and vision to make the
church a vessel for healing and revival in America.
Military – Pray for divine provision and protection for all
military personnel and their families. Pray for their courage
and dependence on God and perseverance to endure
hardship. Pray for Chaplains to deliver God’s strength
and Word.
Business & Economy – Pray for integrity among
Christian workers and business owners to serve with
humility, compassion and grace. Pray for God’s protection
and support for job security and growth.
Media – Pray for journalists to be fair and accurate and
for entertainers to conduct themselves in a responsible
manner.

The Lord is good, a stronghold in time of trouble.
He knows who trusts in him. Nahum 1:7
