11 Petitions/11 Minutes/40 Days

The 11 Petitions of Prayer.

You can select more than one (1).

Unity Father, Your Word says in Luke 10:2, "The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that He would send forth labourers into His harvest." We thank you for those You have sent, who will labor in Word, song and inspiration during the Holy Convocation. Our confession is that as a result of their labor the harvest is reaped: souls are saved, believers are filled with the Holy Spirit, sick bodies are healed and miracles take place, according to 1 Corinthians 12:7. In the name of Jesus. Amen.
Worship Services Father, we ask that you touch the hearts of Your people to enter into every service with a mind to worship. We declare that your people have the mind of Christ (Philippians 2:5). We declare that your people enter Your gates with thanksgiving and into Your courts with praise; they are thankful and bless Your name (Psalm 100:3-4). In the name of Jesus, we confess that every service is anointed, Your name is always glorified and your people are edified (1 Corinthians 14:3). Amen.
Church Leaders Father, we give you thanks for our leaders: Our Presiding Bishop, the General Board and all of those that You have selected to serve. Our confession is that they are anointed with fresh oil (Psalm 103:5). They always hear Your voice clearly and the voice of a stranger they will not follow (John 10:5). We stand in agreement that their homes, families and ministries are blessed (Deuteronomy 28:1-44). We thank you Father that, during the Holy Convocation, they always have a Word in due season for Your people (Proverbs 15:23). In Jesus' Name. Amen.
Civic Leaders Father, the heart of a leader is in Your hand (Proverbs 21:1). You are the King of Kings (1 Timothy 6:15). We pray that you would guide, lead and direct our global, national, regional, state/provincial, and local leaders; that we might lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty (1 Timothy 2:2). We ask that Your will be done in the elections in the United States and in the political process of nations around the world (Psalm 75:5-7Romans 13:1). Father, let the impact of the message of the Gospel, through the Church Of God In Christ, be felt around the world (Acts 17:6). We ask in the name of Jesus. Amen.
Protection Father, we plead the blood of Jesus over the saints' travel to, from and while in St Louis for the Holy Convocation. Your Word declares in Psalm 91:11, "For He shall give His angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways." We cover every means of travel with the blood: air, rail and automobile. Let every driver be alert and refreshed. We stand against accidents, break downs, hazards and all dangers seen and unseen. Thank you for keeping your people saved and safe. In Jesus' name. Amen.
Finances Father, Your Word says in Philippians 4:19, "But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus." We ask you to supply all of the money necessary for your people to participate in the Holy Convocation. We declare favor, bonuses, promotions and unexpected financial blessings upon Your people. Supply seed to the sower, according to 2 Corinthians 9:10. Let Your people give cheerfully (2 Corinthians 9:7). We confess that every bill of the Holy Convocation is paid in full and there is no lack among us individually or collectively (2 Corinthians 8:15). We plead the blood of Jesus over the saints' finances and over the finances of the "national" church. In Jesus' name. Amen.
St. Louis Father, in the name of Jesus, we ask that the city of Saint Louis, Missouri be impacted, for the good, as a result of the saints being present for the Holy Convocation. We plead the blood over every area of the America's Center. We pray for the convention center staff to be blessed. We pray against any accidents occurring in the center, or any place that the soul of the saints' feet will tread upon. We seek the peace of the city and pray that you would bless it spiritually and economically (Genesis 30:27). We pray for the saint's neighborhoods to be safe while they are away from home and also for the neighborhoods where they lodge in St. Louis to be blessed as well. Amen.
Staff and Volunteers Father, cover all of the labor of Holy Convocation volunteers with the blood. Let them serve as unto the Lord, according to Colossians 3:23, "And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men." We pray for you to give strength to the Convocation staff from start to finish. We pray for unity and peace among the workers. There is no strife or division among us. We all speak the same thing. Our confession over every staff member and volunteer is Philippians 1:6, "Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ." In Jesus' name. Amen.
Unity Father, Your Son Jesus prayed in John 17:21, "That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me." We declare that the atmosphere of the Holy Convocation is good and pleasant, as the brethren dwell together in unity (Psalm 133:1). We stand in agreement with Your Word inHebrews 13:1, "Let brotherly love continue." We praise you that as the saints worship you, with one accord, we enjoy a renewal of the Pentecostal experience according to Acts 2:1-4. In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.
The Word of God Father, we declare that every Holy Convocation speaker is taught of the Lord (Isaiah 54:13). We thank you that every message will fall on good ground and bring forth fruit (Matthew 13:8). We pray for every attendee to come with expectation in their heart. Thank you that we are doers of the Word and not hearers only. We confess that the Spirit of the Lord is upon every speaker, because You have anointed them (Luke 4:18). Bless each speakers' prayer and study time; let there be no distractions. Thank you that Your Word has free course. We declare that the Word is confirmed with signs following (Mark 16:20)! In Jesus' name. Amen.
The Local Church Father, we confess that all of our local churches are impacted by the Holy Convocation, according to Acts 9:31. We speak that unity abides in all of our churches and that each of them experiences increase in: salvations, healings, Holy Spirit-baptisms, membership, finance and impact on their community. Let every bishop, superintendent, pastor and church leader receive an impartation from the Convocation. Let the impartation impact each member that is unable to attend the meeting. Let a Spirit of revival begin in the Holy Convocation and rest upon each of the Churches Of God In Christ around the world (Psalm 85:6). We ask You to let plowman overtake the reaper, in Jesus' name (Amos 9:13)! Our confession is that every pastor lengthens their cords and is effective at taking nations (Isaiah 54:2)! We agree that every pastor, leader and laymen catches the vision to seek Your way for us and succeeding generations…through obedience, prayer, and the Word (2 Chronicles 7:12-13Ezra 8:21-23)! In Jesus' name. Amen.
