IDEAS FOR YOUR PRAYER CARDS
I have recently written two articles, OUR PRAYER BOX and also TRY DIFFERENT PRAYER BOXES to help you and your family pray more effectively. To read this articles go to: http://tinyurl.com/OurPrayerBox and http://tinyurl.com/TryDifferentPrayerBoxes.
You will have special people and countries the Lord lays upon your heart as a family, but here are some of the needs that are currently written on our cards. I cut pieces of white card and write the prayer request on them. As you read these great needs for prayer, write the ones that you particularly want to pray for on a card for your prayer box. If you have very young children, you can simplify these prayer needs.
I also give further information regarding some of the needs. You don't need to write this on your card. It is for your information as you learn more on how to pray for the needs of the world. And to find out more information on these subjects you can go to this link: http://tinyurl.com/RecommendedLinks
Here are some ideas for you. All of these are urgent needs to pray about:
PRAY THAT THE GOSPEL WILL BE PREACHED TO ALL NATIONS (Matthew 24:14). Did you know that 42.1 % of the people groups of the world are unreached with the gospel?
To check a map of the unreached countries of the world go to:
PRAY FOR THE HEARTS OF THE FATHERS AND MOTHERS TO TURN BACK TO EMBRACING CHILDREN, AND PASTORS AND PASTOR'S WIVES TOO. PRAY THEY WILL OPEN THEIR HEARTS TO CHILDREN (Malachi 4:4-6).
PRAY FOR OUR SUPREME COURT JUSTICES THAT THEY WILL MAKE RIGHTEOUS DECISIONS THAT ARE ACCORDING TO THE CONSTITUTION.
PRAY FOR A GREAT MOVE OF GOD AMONG THE MUSLIM PEOPLE OF THE WORLD AND THAT THOUSANDS WILL COME TO SALVATION.
PRAY FOR THE MBBs (MUSLIM BACKGROUND BELIEVERS). Pray for strength and courage in the face of persecution.

PRAY FOR THE PERSECUTED CHURCH AROUND THE WORLD.
Encourage your children to memorize Hebrews 13:2 so they understand how important it is to pray for the suffering saints in the world. Go to this link to check out the top 50 countries who are persecuting Christians. You may like to write a card for one country a week to put in your prayer box so you can gradually pray for them all. http://www.worldwatchlist.us/world-watch-list-countries/

PRAY FOR PROVISION AND WORKERS TO GO TO HELP THE SUFFERING CHRISTIANS IN THE MIDDLE EAST.
Since July 2014, Muslim extremists in the Middle East have intensely persecuted more than 400,000 Christians. Conservative estimates say ISIS has brutally slaughtered more than 3,000 men, women, and children over the same time frame simply because of their unwillingness to convert to Islam.

Plus we pray for missionaries, organizations, and other needs that are personally known to us. You will have specific needs that you will want to pray for also.
I pray that your daily prayer times will become more meaningful as you give definite needs to your family to pray for. Children need to be steered in how to pray for the needs of the world. Give them a vision for prayer while they are young. Teach them how to be intercessors now. Give them a vision to pray for the countries of the world.
When you have visitors, include them in your PRAYER BOX time also. It will give them a vision to do it in their home too.
