Invite God’s powerful presence to draw people to Himself that they might know life in the fullest measure through Christ.
Preemptive prayers relating to natural disasters: Ask the Lord to stabilize the weather patterns and keep extreme weather conditions at bay. Since Jesus Himself said, “Peace! Be still!” (Mark 4:39) to the storm, pray for accommodating weather. Thank Him for taking care of our every need.
