Prayer for Whatcom County and the World - Jan-Feb 2024

Prayers for Whatcom County and the World

Praise and Worship  

And David said: “Blessed are you, O

LORD, the God of Israel our father, forever and ever. Yours, O

LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the

victory and the majesty, for all that is in the heavens and in the

earth is yours. Yours is the kingdom, O LORD, and you are

exalted as head above all. Both riches and honor come from

you, and you rule over all. In your hand are power and might,

and in your hand it is to make great and to give strength to

all. And now we thank you, our God, and praise your glorious

name.” (1 Chronicles 29:10-11, ESV)

This prayer guide focuses on praying one of the Names of God

over each sphere of our city/county. As we begin 2024 let us lift

the Name of Jesus above all: above family divisions, above

denominations, above preferences, above politics, above the

news, above all that seeks to divide, because Jesus said when

He was lifted up ALL people would be drawn to HIM (John

12:32). David’s prayer (above) is a great example of exalting

God above all. The glorious thing is that when we do, our own

spirits are lifted too. Many people are tired and discouraged

right now. Notice that David proclaims that God is able to ‘give

strength to all.’ (Suggested song to listen/worship with, “I

Speak Jesus” by Charity Gale.)

Pray for your Church, your City - Pray for your Family, your
Church, your schools.

Pray for the unique setting your church has as a part of the

body of Christ. Pray for the body of Christ to, “Do justice, love

kindness, walk humbly with God” (Micah 6:8)

  • We pray/bring justice into our world by ____________

  • We show the kindness of God by ____________

  • We seek to demonstrate the humility of Christ by _______

pray for all in youth ministry to demonstrate God’s love in

their being present.

words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built

his house on the rock. And the rain fell, and the floods came,

because it had been founded on the rock.”

with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our

trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you

have been saved….”

like physical therapy. This will challenge both seniors and

providers who seek to serve. Pray for creative solutions.


International Missions/Israel/Native Americans

Lord of the Harvest – Matthew 9:37-38, “Then he said to his

disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few;

therefore, pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send

out laborers into his harvest.”

  • Pray for Bangladesh. With over 167 million people, and less

than 1% Christ-followers, Bangladesh represents a massive

harvest field that needs Jesus! Pray that God will send out

many workers, draw many people to Christ, and establish

His Church all across Bangladesh!

  • Ps 122:6, “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem! May they be

secure who love you!” As believers in Jesus, we not only

pray for the peace of Jerusalem, but we pray for salvation

and Harvest - on all sides of the current conflict.

  • Pray for the several outreach efforts to the Native kids in

this area. Pray that the Lord of the Harvest doubles the

number of kids at each event.


In Jesus footsteps we seek to glorify the Father in prayer and in

life. Pray again from 1 Chronicles 29 -

“O LORD God of our Father Israel, you deserve praise

forevermore! O LORD, you are great, mighty, majestic,

magnificent, glorious, and sovereign over all the sky and earth!

You have dominion and exalt Yourself as the Ruler of all. You are

the source of wealth and honor; You rule over all. You possess

strength and might to magnify and give strength to all. Now,

our God, we give thanks to YOU and praise Your Majestic Name!
