Have you ever said you would gladly pray more if you only knew for what to pray? Perhaps the following will help you.
Sunday: Pray for your relatives—your father, mother, sisters, brothers, aunts, uncles and cousins. If any are not saved, pray for their salvation.
Monday: Pray for your friends—your playmates in the neighborhood and at school. Pray especially for those who do not love Jesus.
Tuesday: Pray for those who are leaders in your church your pastor, your Bible School superintendent, your Bible School teacher, and the officers in your class or Christian Endeavor.
Wednesday: Pray for the members of your class in Bible School. Ask God to save those who are not His, and to help the others to live lives that please Him.
Thursday: Ask God to bless the missionaries (perhaps you can name some of them) who are telling people about Jesus in other lands. Pray for the boys and girls, and the men and women, whom they are teaching.
Friday: Pray for those whom you do not like—playmates or others who have not treated you right. See what God says about this in Mt. 5:44-45.
Saturday: Make a list of those you would like to see saved, and pray for them.
