How to Pray for America Through October 2017: Four Prayer Priorities

The National Day of Prayer mobilizes unified public prayer for America. Let’s walk in unity by praying for these four priorities in our nation beginning now and continuing through the entire month of October. As you pray, imagine that you are joining with thousands of others standing in agreement in prayer for our nation.

1. Ask God to bring together His Church in America as a witness to the world.

May they all be one, as you, Father, are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us, so that the world may believe you sent me. John 17:21

  • Lord, regardless of our own preferences or traditions, draw each of Your followers together as a witness of Jesus to the entire world.
  • Father, use Your Church to serve as the unifying body of people in America.
  • Holy Spirit, wake up Your Church to spiritual revival, experiencing the manifest presence of God as a people.

2. Trust God to turn the leaders of our nation toward His Word and will.

A king’s heart is like channeled water in the Lord’s hand: He directs it wherever he chooses. Proverbs 21:1

  • Lord Jesus, we ask You to turn the heart of our President, Vice President, and both houses of Congress toward Your Word and Your ways.
  • Father, we ask You to turn the hearts of all of our political leaders to come together for the good of our nation.
  • Holy Spirit, we ask You to place God’s armor upon each of our leaders, protecting them and their families in every way.

3. Appeal to God to bring the next Great Spiritual Awakening to America in our generation.

Besides this, since you know the time, it is already the hour for you to wake up from sleep, because now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed. Romans 13:11

  • Father, we ask that Your sovereign will be for the next Great Spiritual Awakening to occur in our generation.
  • Lord Jesus, because of Your grace, pour out Your power upon our nation, bringing forth a spiritual awakening that will result in millions coming to faith in Jesus Christ.
  • Holy Spirit, move Your Church to pray extraordinarily until we see the next Great Spiritual Awakening in our generation.

4. Believe God now with us as we move and work toward the 2018 National Day of Prayer on May 3, 2018.

Ask and it will be given to you. Seek, and you will find. Knock, and the door will be opened to you. Matthew 7:7

  • Lord, we know that You know the things we need before we ask, but we ask You to move churches, denominations, and ministries toward leading and participating in the 2018 National Day of Prayer on Thursday, May 3.
  • Oh God, please call forth and mobilize thousands upon thousands of volunteers to help us lead thousands upon thousands of prayer gatherings across America on Thursday, May 3, 2018.
  • Holy Spirit of God, we ask You to move people to support the daily and annual ministry of the National Day of Prayer through prayer, service, and giving.

Let’s join together in clear agreement, visible union, and extraordinary prayer for these four prayer priorities in America between now and the end of October.

Now is the Time to Lead and to Pray,
