The first step in developing specific prayers for your community, oddly enough, is to pray. Start with a specific prayer, asking God to open your eyes to those areas in your community that have the most influence. Ask Him to open your eyes to those things which are beneficial, and those which are harmful. In high school, my business teacher took the class for a walk one day. We walked along the street, two blocks straight up from the high school, then around the town square and back to the school. Along the way, we were to make a list of each and every business we saw, and what that business did. I was extremely surprised at the number, and variety of businesses in just that section of our small town of 2500 people. I was even more surprised to find that almost everyone in class, including me, had missed at least one or two businesses along the way, and we were walking right in front of them, looking for them. What I am saying is, “there is so much going on around us in our own communities; that have influence on us, our family, and friends, that so often go unnoticed and un-prayed for.” “Father open our eyes to see!”
