Making Intercession

female, prayingI’ll spend some time in secret prayer,
My burden’s for the lost.
I’ll pray until my family’s saved
No matter what the cost.

I’ll also pray for all my friends,
My next-door neighbors, too.
Please give me opportunities
To lead them all to you.

I won’t forget the mission field,
I’ll pray for those abroad.
Protect them, Lord, as they go out
To preach the Word of God.

For all those in authority,
Please help them understand,
They need to seek your wisdom when
They make laws for our land.

Finally, Lord, ignite your church,
I pray that everywhere
Christians will get on their knees
To seek you, Lord, in prayer
