Focus Prayer: Plainfield NJ
Plainfield NJ – Lord, I lift up the community of Plainfield, and the surrounding neighborhoods. Let us love these people as we love ourselves. May our concern for their needs override other things that take our time and focus. Rebuild and restore areas that have been devastated. Renew our community—send your peace and prosperity into this place where you’ve planted us. Bless each individual home and family. Build each house from the inside out; watch over our city.
(Gal. 5:14; Prov. 3:28; Isa. 61:4; Jer. 29:7; Lk. 10:5-6; Ps. 127:1)
And now I pray for (Individuals /the City) that they might be drawn to Jesus Christ for salvation. I pray that You, O Lord, might cause them to see their sins, and that they might cry to you and be saved. Lord, make them discontent with their self-help solutions and their misguided quest for personal peace and significance. Show them the glories of Jesus, not just as Savior, but as Lord and King. Cause them to believe on Him and be saved.
