Sisters and brothers, I ask you to join me in spending the next week in prayer and fasting for North America (Wednesday, June 3 – Wednesday, June 10). For those who can fast the whole week, a day, or a meal, I ask you to set aside time to intercede on behalf of your community, state, and nation. 

Pray in the Holy Spirit and as the Holy Spirit leads you, and as you do, consider these petitions:

  • Show me my own sin; reveal to me the darkness of my own heart (Psalms 139:24)
  • Reveal to me the repentance I need in my own life
  • The ending of the lawlessness and violence
  • Justice for those who have had their lives taken from them, especially George Floyd, and comfort for their families
  • Comfort for the family and friends of the thousands of people who have lost their lives because of COVID-19
  • Help for the millions who find themselves suddenly without a job
  • Provision for all those business owners who have lost their business because of the rioting, for those who have insurance and those who do not
  • Strength for the health care workers, nurses, doctors, technicians in hospitals and medical facilities who continue to work fearlessly to save lives
  • Wisdom for our government and civil leaders as they seek to keep us safe both from the virus and from the violence in our cities
  • Food and provision for those who are hungry and in need
  • Fresh anointing for the Church of Jesus Christ to faithfully proclaim the Gospel and reach people who are hurting, suffering, alone, and in need
  • Specific acts of grace and mercy that You want me to carry out in this time
