Pray with biblical promise.
Each day helps you focus on a single topic of hope arising from scripture. Each day’s promise builds toward a weekly theme. The daily prayers in this guide begin with a passage from the Old Testament and a prayer which springs from that scripture. Next is a verse or two from the Gospels, going further on the same topic as it arises in the life and words of Christ.
Pray for everyone in town.
Focus on the different kinds of people which comprise any community, such as police, pastors, children, the homeless, sick people and many more.
