- Brush your teeth
- Take a shower
- Drink a cup of coffee
- Walk the dog
- Change a diaper
- Turn on a light ….
But instead of praying for friends and family like you do at other times, pray for those things you never seem to have time to pray for.
- When you brush your teeth, pray for a specific government leader. 1 Timothy 2:1-4
- When you shower, pray for a specific missionary. 2 Thessalonians 3:1-2
- When you turn on a light pray for persecuted Christians in a specific country. Hebrews 13:3
Don’t worry if your prayers are short, you’ll be developing a habit of consistency.
Then change it out from time to time so you can cover more ministries, countries, leaders, missionaries, etc.
If you don’t really know what/who to pray for, ask a ministry leader in your church or community.
