Pray for Slovenia
Personal note: I am still on vacation, presently in Budapest, Hungary – tomorrow in Serbia. Ninety percent of the time I am away from the Internet so I can’t do research. Also being around the family on vacation it is hard to have a quite time and hear from God concerning prayer points for Slovenia. There is a brother in Slovenia, Todd, who is a dedicated prayer warrior for the country. Each month Todd puts out a prayer guide for Slovenia so I want to share some of his prayer points for this week.

As we pray for Slovenia, let us pray following our Lord’s Prayer:

1. REVIVE – “Our Father who is in heaven…” Pray for God to revive and unite His people as one family before Him; for wayward Christians to repent and return to God as Father, learning to obey and trust Him; for fresh moments of prayer, seeking the throne of grace with persistence.

2. REVEAL – “…sanctify Your name…” Pray for the truth of God’s character to be exalted and honored. Pray for God to distinguish Himself from every false god and to expose every false thing spoken about Him. Pray for the word of God to be proclaimed in every people and place across the earth.

3. RULE – “May Your kingdom come…” Pray for many to be drawn by the power of the Gospel, to submit their lives to Jesus Christ. Pray for Christ’s followers to walk in the fullness of God’s Spirit so that they can live in the likeness of Christ. Pray for the Lordship of Christ to influence every part of our cities and societies.

4. TRANSFORM – “…and may Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven…” Pray for God’s people to bring the influence and blessing of Christ into every aspect of commerce, arts, education and governance in ways that bring lasting transformation. Pray for God’s wisdom to be upon government leaders, bring changes that increase righteousness and justice.

5. PROVIDE – “…Give us this day daily bread…” Be still before the Lord. Speak to Him confidently and listen carefully, as if face to face with Jesus. Set the desires of your heart beyond your own needs. Pray for the basic needs of food, water and health care for the poor, for the sick, for refugees and for children; that God’s people would become, by His Spirit’s help, agents of change.

6. FORGIVE – “…Forgive us our sins…” Pray for the Spirit of God to move in the hearts of people so that they will be able to see how God is grieved and how their lives are being destroyed by sin. Pray for the Spirit of God to empower people to abandon patterns of sin and find grace to renounce allegiances to powers of darkness.

7. RECOCILE “…as we forgive those who sin against us…” Pray God would break cycles of resentment of relationships between women and men, for reconciliation in marriages and renewed relationships of children with their parents.

8. LEAD “…And lead us not into temptation…” Pray for Christians to be filled with such love and zeal to please God that they are unmoved by enticements of materialism and sexual perversity, Pray that Christ would guide leaders of business, education and government so that the curse of corruption would be overcome.

9. OVERCOME “…but deliver us from evil.” Pray that God would restrain satanic powers, revealing the truth of the Gospel, liberating people to follow Christ; for deliverance from idolatry, witchcraft, demonic oppression and depression.

10. GLORIFY “…for Yours is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever.” Pray that Jesus would be honored openly, worshiped extravagantly and glorified globally.

June 12. GLOBAL DAY OF PRAYER – Join Christians in every nation today in prayer, confession, repentance, worship and asking God to move mightily in our day, now!
