Pray for Your Husband
Pray that your husband will choose healthy, God-honoring activities. Pray that he will not live in bondage to any questionable habits or hobbies, but that he will experience freedom in holiness as he yields to the Spirit’s control. (1 Cor. 6:12, 10:31; 2 Tim. 2:4)
Pray for Your Wife
Pray that your children will be taught of the Lord and experience His peace. Pray that the pressures of the life will not discourage or embitter her. (Isa. 54:13)
Pray for Your Children
Peace-Loving—”Father, let my children make every effort to do what leads to peace.” (Rom. 14:19)
Pray for Your Singleness
It is my prayer that your love may abound more and more, with knowledge and all discernment, so that you may approve what is excellent, and so be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God. (Philippians 1:9–11)
Finish the work you have started within me and through me, making me a little more like Jesus every day. Restrain me from doing anything to make his death look cheap or meaningless. Equip me to increasingly think, talk, and act like someone who has been saved at infinite cost and entrusted with the greatest news the world has ever known.
Pray for Unbelievers
Pray that God would extend his mercy to them. God assures us that he wishes for all people to turn to him in repentance and faith. He receives no joy from seeing people perish. Pray, then, that God would be glorified in the salvation of these people. “The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance” (2 Peter 3:9).

Challenges for Prayer
The government faces an uphill battle in establishing true stability and order. A young nation, Honduras’ colonial past and military rule for most of its independence mean that democratic structures and mentalities must be nurtured. Corruption within the government, preferential treatment of the rich minority and prevalent poverty make the nation vulnerable to structures of sin. Pray for righteousness and for wise and resolute governance.
Specialist Christian ministries. Pray for:
a) Student outreach by both CCCI and IFES. With a burgeoning young population, many churches are also taking up ministry to children and students.
b) Christian literature. Hosanna and Vida’s bookstores are important resources for Christian growth.
c) Radio. National radio gives time to several evangelical churches, and there are 41 local evangelical radio stations (such as HRVC, Stereo Luz and Cosecha) and two TV channels as well as Internet radio.
