Praying with purpose

Welcome Dear Friends,
After a storm along the coast of California, my husband and I drove to a small park at the top of a hill which overlooks the Pacific Ocean and took the above picture. Many years ago, our city erected this giant 20 foot rustic cross to honor the life of Father Junipero Serra, a Spanish missionary who lived in the 1700’s. He erected the original cross to mark the location of the local Mission.

You and I have a life-changing experience in common: You and I have both come the way of the cross.

Our experience may be different, but the cross required us to believe what Jesus did for us, and to yield our lives and our will, to make Him Lord and Savior. What a journey we are on!

You and I also have something else quite important in common: the call to pray.GOD HAS A PLAN!  GOD HAS A PURPOSE!Prayer for our cities and counties has never been more vitally important.
The days are evil; nevertheless, prayer is powerful and changes things when accompanied by faith. So many are running to and fro with very busy lives and don’t have time for prayer. But God does have many Believers who are disciplined, seasoned Christians, who are passionate and determined to put God’s Word and prayer first place in their lives and fulfill their call to ministry.

And we love the United States. We are one nation; we are under God and we’re not in the minority!This website is designed to empower people of prayer with different resources that are based on the Word of God, which is able to “build us up.” (Acts 20:32)Our mission is:

  • To have people from their state pray in the plans of God for the End-Time Harvest of Souls
  • Our assignment is to pray for:  The Church – The Lost – Elected Officials
  • We provide a platform for God to speak to His people. With an emphasis on faith and prayer, THE LIBRARY, (formerly Team Tuesday Bible Lesson) is provided for you to re-charge your spirit with strength from God’s living Word. 
  • We have a new resource called “THIS IS THAT….” These are shorter Bible Lessons to help keep your faith on track.
  • How important is your Pastor? We have a responsibility to pray for them. See: Proclamations for Pastors
  • Another new resource for you is called: 101 Things God said on Healing.
  • Read through THE BULLET BOX and THE MEDICINE CABINET often. 
  • Knowing the WHO YOU ARE (IN CHRIST) SCRIPTURES  will strengthen your inner man and make you bold as a lion! How can a soldier carry out his orders correctly if he doesn’t know who is, where he is from, or what he is called to do?
  • See the THE VISION page for more about our vision and assignment. POWER PRAISE is a collection of anointed songs you can start your day with and also use in prayer.
  •  PRAYERS FOR FAMILY will help you to pray effectively for loved ones.
  • Our resource, CURRENT EVENTS will give you news updates and specific direction in how to pray for our nation.
  •  THE SWORD  is a collection of scriptures and positive confessions I have been collecting for a few years.
  • What would revival look like in your city? Check out this exciting  resource that will spark your faith to start dreaming of things to come!  REVIVAL COMETH

There are anointings of God that flow when His people join together for a purpose. Even though we are not assembling together in a building , we are gathering together in His Spirit, for we are “being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.” (Ephesians 2:22)  The glory of being together on assignment with His Spirit is magnificent!

Please check out the ABOUT US pages for Prayer with Purpose history.

Menu tabs at the top of each page, as well as sub menus contain many other resources, too numerous to mention here.

We expect all these resources to bless you because their foundation is God’s Word, which is first place in all that we do.

Please pray for your state / nation with others who have the same goal: Revival in America!

Prayer always lays track for revival. And prayer will keep a covering over our cities. (Jeremiah 29:7)

Truly, it is the love of Christ that compels us!

During his lifetime he pastored churches, traveled as an evangelist, served as a Civil War chaplain, edited a Christian periodical and was a devoted husband and father. But E.M. Bounds is best known for prayer. His daily habit was to spend the time between 4 am and 7 am praying. His writings on prayer are widely acclaimed to be among the finest of any author before or since.

In Christian circles, it’s not uncommon that when someone shares a tough situation that’s happening in their life, that the person they are conversing with replies “I will pray for you.” Or an individual in need will tell their friends “I have a prayer request” and will then reveal whatever is causing their need. In both cases, one person often assents to pray for another and yet that agreement is only a passing commitment, as they quickly go upon their merry way and forget the promised prayer.

Recently, I’ve been convicted that sometimes we’re even more passive in our prayer lives with the people who we are closest with. Perhaps it’s because we feel that we already know what’s going on in their lives, and so we don’t bother to ask. Or perhaps it is because it makes us feel uncomfortable to ask our spouse, our sibling, our child or our best friend on a regular basis how we can be praying for them. We may offer general prayers on their behalf, but how often to we stop to discover what God is teaching them, how He is refining them and how we can be encouraging them with prayer to respond rightly to Him? How often do we know specific areas that they are struggling with and for which they desire prayerful intercession? Do we, in other words, pray for them with purpose or do we pray with passive intent?

I’m convinced that if we more regularly and intentionally lifted up those we loved to God, that God would use those purposeful prayers to accomplish much for His kingdom. And I’m convinced that our relationships would enjoy a richness that they most likely currently lack, for we would be interceding on their behalf to the Maker and their Savior. We wouldn’t be praying in general terms for God’s will for their lives (which is good), but we would be asking for His help in specific areas where they are struggling. We would be bringing them to His throne with focused intent We would be asking for Christ’s presence to be manifest in their lives, where they are in need of it most.

What could be more purposeful than that?

Many Christians crave something more from their prayer time. We pray knowing that God hears and answers our prayers, but we also know that prayer should be something more than recited phrases and personal wish lists. God wants prayer to become vital to everything we do. Using Scripture passages, applications, and a prayer guide, “Praying with Purpose” is a five-week study designed to teach believers how to pray without ceasing. Perfect for church use, small groups, or individual study.
