Borderless is blessed to be a part of God’s Kingdom advancing around the world, including in the gateway metropolitan area of Chicago. With one of the world’s busiest international airports, as a center of finance and learning, and situated in the country with the largest and most diverse immigrant population, Chicagoland is either home or a destination to people from almost every nation.
We humbly ask you to join your prayers with ours that 2017 will see remarkable spiritual breakthroughs. Here are three practical ways to join us:
- We are so encouraged by the growing unity in prayer among the Body in Chicagoland, which will be displayed in part at the next Pray Chicago event.
- We invite you to join us at the CMBA prayer conference, which will include a time of prayer at the iconic Willis Tower (Sears Tower), on Saturday, January 28. Please pray for fifty pastors and fifty other spiritual leaders to be gathered at this event.
- If you are not in the Chicagoland area, we encourage you to use these prayer videos for each of the 77 neighborhoods in the city of Chicago.
Now here are a few ways to pray for Chicagoland:
Pray for existing churches to be strengthened. Some churches are praying and fasting during January; pray that revival and refreshing will come.
Pray that there will be at least one growing church for every language spoken in Chicagoland.
Pray that the Church will be actively engaged in ministry among every people group in Chicagoland. Ask the Lord of the harvest to send forth more workers to make this possible.
Pray that every neighborhood with a strategic diaspora group will be adopted.
Ask God to send dreams and visions among the hundreds of thousands of Buddhists, Hindus and Muslims in Chicagoland.
Pray that every college and university campus in the metropolitan area will have a vibrant student ministry. Pray that every international student will have a personal relationship with someone who loves Jesus.
Pray for government leaders on city and state levels to seek wisdom from the Lord and to uphold justice and righteousness. Pray that corruption will be exposed and uprooted.
Pray for God’s blessings and favor upon business leaders who seek to bless their employees and their communities.
Pray for families to be strengthened. Pray that the widowed and the fatherless will know the care and protection of the Almighty.
Pray for an end to the activities which are funding and fueling the violence. Pray that bitterness will be replaced with forgiveness. Pray that the Prince of Peace will rule in hearts.
