Boston is a city known for its intellect.  It is a city of colleges, students, medicine, hospitals, finance and technology.   However, it was established with a spiritual purpose.  It was to be “a city on a hill and a light to the nations.”  We believe that Boston will be most healthy and will have its greatest international impact when it stewards all its resources well under God’s leadership.

We want to continually be praying for Boston – that God will have mercy on our city, and that His favor will rest on its people and its efforts.  Here are some more specific ways we can be prayerfully supporting our city:

  • Pray that we will turn from intellectual pride and submit our minds and our reasoning to the wisdom and authority of the Lord.
  • Pray for government leaders in our city and state – that they would have soft, God-fearing hearts, and that they would cooperate with God’s will.
  • Pray that the Church will take its rightful place in every arena and sector of our city.
  • Pray that the Church will learn how to serve and disciple young people and college students well – as they are our greatest resource and calling.
  • Pray that church and ministry leaders will develop healthy, functional relationships with other spiritual and community leaders.
  • Pray that the rich neighborhoods of Boston will enhance and strengthen the city as a whole.
  • Pray that every neighborhood in Boston will be a safe place to live and visit.
  • Pray for the young people of Boston, that they will feel safe and secure and have a positive hope for the future.  Pray against youth violence and gang warfare.
  • Pray that Boston will be a city of mercy, a city that cares for the poor and marginalized within its boundaries, in our region and throughout the world.
  • Pray for revival – the dynamic and inspirational life of God – to enter our churches and our entire city.  We want to see the Kingdom of God advance throughout Boston!
