5 Things to Pray for Your City

Full Product Description

  • For Christians in urban settings
  • These prayers help you engage with the city around you
  • Part of the '5 Things to Pray' series, this helps you engage in renewing your city

Living in a city means you can’t help but be confronted by all the ways God is needed. The poverty, the corruption, the misery of the destitute begging for change and the affluent drinking to quell their dissatisfaction. Every alleyway needs hope, and every street needs God. And as cities are becoming increasingly large, and will soon hold 60% of the world’s population, knowing how to act on behalf of cities will become increasingly vital. 

And the first thing you can do is pray.

Part of the ‘5 Things to Pray’ series of books, this edition is designed to help guide your prayer and grow your heart for the city around you. Each day in ‘5 Things to Pray for Your City’ features five different things you can pray for. From social issues like justice, marginalisation, economic issues and crime to Church-specific ways that a difference can be made, this short book will help focus your prayers and heart. 

Helping you to become a better Christian as well as city citizen, each prayer point in ‘5 Things to Pray for Your City’ seeks to bring God’s kingdom to cities the world over. 

This guide also features an introduction by Tim Keller, and spaces for your own notes and reflections.

Publisher's Description

Our cities are full of people, full of needs, and bursting with opportunity. The United Nations estimates that 60% of the world's population will live in cities by 2030.

Urban churches have the world on our doorstep. But if we want to see God work in our cities and through our churches, we need to pray.

That's where this little book is designed to help. It will enlarge your vision and equip you to pray passionately and powerfully for the salvation and renewal of your city.

Each chapter takes a passage of Scripture and suggests 5 things to pray for an area of city life. Because when we pray in line with God's priorities as found in his word, our prayers are powerful and effective (James 5 v 16)—and that's a truly thrilling prospect.

This book has been developed in partnership with London City Mission and Redeemer City to City, and is flexible enough to be used whatever your urban context.

Use this book to:

  • Guide your prayers during your personal quiet times
  • Equip church members to pray meaningfully for your city
  • Help you prepare expressive public intercessions for church
  • Fuel your church prayer meeting
  • Initiate and take part in a city-wide prayer movement
