When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting.
We’re dedicating 30 days this summer to specifically focus on the Triad – the area we call home. To signify the power of Acts 2:1, we’re asking you to pause your day at 2:10pm for just a moment of prayer. We’ll provide you with a specific topic to pray about – so we’ll all be praying together at one time, all across the Triad.
To make it easier, you can join our text list and receive a text reminder each afternoon.
Pray for a great move of God. An estimated 6% of Americans have a truly biblical worldview. Many Christians don’t know how to carefully look at life through a biblical lens.
Pray for a spiritual awakening in the Triad. In the United States, 41% of the population believes the Bible, the Quran, and the Book of Mormon all express the same divine truths.
Pray for spiritual clarity. Among Americans who claim to embrace a biblical worldview, many also believe reincarnation is possible — and that Jesus is not the only way to salvation.
Pray for Millennials in the Triad (people ages 24-40). Although a majority identify as Christians, only 2% hold a biblical worldview.
Pray for Gen Z in the Triad (people ages 9-24). Among American teenagers, 40% claim no religious affiliation.
Pray for healing from emotional and mental distress. Recent statistic show steeply rising levels of depression, anxiety, and other very serious mental health problems.
Pray for stability among children in the Triad. Emergency room visits for mental health crisis among teens increased 31% during the pandemic. May Jesus – the Author of Life – protect that which the enemy is seeking to destroy.
Pray for an increase of courage and peace rooted in Jesus. “My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.” (Psalm 73:26 NIV)
Pray for hope. As the pandemic and related difficulties continue, many are hopeless, searching, and in need of the anchoring love of Jesus.
Pray for victory over life-controlling addictions. Over the course of the past few years, overdose cases have increased dramatically. Pray for the efforts of organizations like Teen & Adult Challenge and our Living Free small groups.
Pray for leaders and those in authority — that they will know Christ and make decisions based on His leading.
Pray for unity in the Triad. A Survey of people in 17 nations found Americans were the most likely to report their country was split among partisan and racial lines.
Pray for the imprisoned, of which each one is in urgent need of Jesus. Currently 2 million people are incarcerated in the US.
Pray for the marginalized people of the Triad, for whom Jesus cares deeply. The pandemic brought to light many racial and economic disparities. May the Holy Spirit help the Church lead the way in grace-filled reconciliation.
Pray for pastors, missionaries, and other church leaders, staff, workers, and volunteers. May they be sustained as they help unite and restore communities.
Pray for repentance. Injustice, idolatry, and divisiveness do not honor God. Pray for repentance and turning away from sin throughout the Triad.
Pray for healing. Wounds caused by broken and sinful behavior can be healed by the Holy Spirit’s intervention.
Pray for the Triad’s churches. The local church is the backbone of healthy community and provides a place for prayer and action.
Pray for the Triad’s businesses. Let the Triad be known as a place of prosperity for entrepreneurs, business owners, and workers. Let the result be generosity that flows through the region.
Pray for rural communities in the Triad like King, Walkertown, and Denton. Healthy, growing churches are as needed in rural communities as in urban centers.
Pray for families in the Triad. Let homes be places of peace, health, and physical and spiritual growth.
Pray for women in the Triad. Amid many challenges and in may different situations, may each woman find restoration, courage, and strength in Jesus.
Pray for men in the Triad. May each man be convicted to live every facet of life in ways honoring to Christ and others.
Pray for children in the Triad and the ministry of GLOWkids. Children have suffered with family stresses during the pandemic as well as social isolation and educational disruptions. Pray for each child to be protected, and to come to know Jesus while they are young.
Pray for students in the Triad. Our nation’s campuses are strategic mission fields. Pray for students who will faithfully live biblical truths and boldly share the love of Christ. Pray specifically for VIVID Youth, Chi Alpha, and Youth for Christ and their leaders.
Pray for intercultural relationship and outreach. Our region is called home by many diverse people groups who speak hundreds of languages and come from varied backgrounds.
Pray for righteousness of thought and action throughout the Triad. “Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is reproach to any people.” (Proverbs 14:34)
Pray for our needy neighbors. Soaring costs have hit hard in the Triad – an area already struggling with food and housing insecurity.
Pray for the triad to acknowledge God. We cannot hope to be blessed as a people without honoring God.
Pray for God to bless America — and for the protection of religious freedom in boldly proclaiming the Gospel. As “One Nation, Under God” we need the Lord’s guidance and blessing.
