Prompts & Prayers

prayer prompts, practical reminders to pray
Which of these do you do most days: 
  • Brush your teeth 
  • Take a shower
  • Drink a cup of coffee 
  • Walk the dog 
  • Change a diaper 
  • Turn on a light …. 
Why not use one or more of these type of activities as a prayer prompt. 

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. 

For example: 
  • 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. 

Or check out one of the sites below: 
Open Doors prayer for persecuted Christians
Intercessors for America
Prayers for those enslaved in sex trafficking

  1. A great way to "pray without ceasing" Thanks for the examples!

  2. Dear Gail
    With my Fm/ME I have lots of time to pray especially now that I am having a very bad flare. I should make a list for I forget most of whom I want to pray for due to the Fibrofog. When I am at times so tired that I don't want to pray, I see in my mind's eye our Lord Jesus praying for us without ceasing and that gives so much encouragement to persevere,
    Blessings XX

  3. What a great idea, Gail! Love the prayer prompts! Thanks so much for hosting today too!

  4. Gail,
    I learned this trick years ago after hearing Dr. Dobson tell about how he committed to pray for a friend every time he took a shower. I know what a gift it is to have friends who pray regularly for me, and I want to be that kind of friend. I pray for you often when I'm blogging, because you've taught me so many helpful skills that I can't help but equate the two. Blessings on you today!

  5. Love this idea of a prayer prompt!
