Welcome to PrayerWorld!

Over the past year, I have been hosting an e-mail prayer group that has prayed about situations in the news. Hopefully this Blog will expand the community of those who are willing to take the time and pray for people beyond themselves.

How does it work? ...Each day I will post one or two news stories from the internet and focus prayer requests around those stories. They range from major world events to seemingly trivial items. Where do they come from? They are the top stories relating to prayer that are returned by a search engine when I log on to the computer. In other words, for this group, we don't really "choose" whom to pray for. Part of the idea is to stretch our praying to things we never thought we would pray about. We may also be praying for people that we don't necessarily agree with or approve of, putting into practice Jesus' command to "pray for our enemies." Sometimes I will offer a way to send an e-prayer to the person/church/organization being prayed for. Should you choose to send one, I ask that your prayers be uplifting prayers of blessing; never prayers of judgment or that God would "correct" the person.

Should you decide at any time that this group is not something you want to do, simply email me and I will remove your name from the list. God bless you all for being willing to encircle the world in prayer through our group!

And now, the news:

Redlands, California, based Mastermedia International will hold its annual media prayer breakfast on Novmber 3. The announcement is here. Today, pray for people who work for the American media, and pray that this prayer breakfast will draw them closer to Christ.

Also, please continue to pray today for President Museveni and the people of Uganda. Read about their national prayer breakfast here.

God bless you all,

Brother Ed
