May he have dominion from sea to sea, and from the River to the ends of the earth! May desert tribes bow down before him, and his enemies lick the dust! May the kings of Tarshish and of the coastlands render him tribute; may the kings of Sheba and Seba bring gifts! May all kings fall down before him, all nations serve him!
— Psalm 72:8–11, ESV

We believe God is sovereign. We also believe he has ordained prayer as a means for us to pour out the longings he puts on our hearts for his kingdom. Oh, how we long to be united with Christ in glory and joined together with his kingdom in its fulness! But there is much that needs to be done before that Great Day comes. Therefore, we pray, even as the Psalmist prayed in Psalm 72 (quoted above), that all nations would worship him and that his dominion would spread to the ends of the earth.

Pray that:

  • The name of Jesus would be made great among all nations. (Malachi 1:11)

  • The gospel of the kingdom would be pronounced to all peoples. (Revelation 14:6)

  • Missionaries and other field workers would be loving, bold, and wise in their gospel activities and that they would be kept from evil, comforted by the Spirit, and encouraged by the Body of Christ. (2 Thessalonians 3:1-2)

  • Churches would be established that would be locally governed, supported, and multiplied to the glory of God alone. (Colossians 1)

  • The Lord of the Harvest would raise up and send out more laborers. (Matthew 9:37-38)
