Now I beseech you, brethren, for the Lord Jesus Christ's sake, and for the love of the Spirit, that ye strive together with me in your prayers to God for me; That I may be delivered from them that do not believe in Judaea; and that my service which I have for Jerusalem may be accepted of the saints; Roman 15:30,31 KJV

Prayers for HARVESTERS on Tuesdays
When He saw the crowds, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.

Pray for the Lord’s compassion on lost souls today—those like sheep who need the Shepherd, and ask Him to sent to those who will bring in the harvest of souls; those who will witness Him to those sheep, who will evangelize to sinners and tell of the Savior.
Prayers for POLITICIANS on Wednesdays
The law of the LORD is perfect, reviving the soul; the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple; the precepts of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes; the fear of the LORD is clean, enduring forever; the rules of the LORD are true, and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, even much fine gold; sweeter also than honey and drippings of the honeycomb. Moreover, by them is your servant warned; in keeping them there is great reward. - Psalm 19:7-11 ESV
Pray our political class may be full of those who govern by the Word of God. Pray from Psalm 19:7-11 for all our public servants: that they would know and value the commandments of God and teachings of Christ, and may these guide them in how they live, serve, and govern.
