Reaching the Nations

As we think about the nations, it’s important to remember that God wants us to be part of reaching the nations, even though He ultimately changes the hearts. Praying through the Psalms is one of my favorite ways to praise Him in my quiet times. Today, we will pray through Psalm 67:

Verse 1 – “May God be gracious to us and bless us and make his face shine on us”

Praise Him for ways He’s been gracious to you or blessed you.

Verse 2-3 “so that your ways may be known on earth,
    your salvation among all nations. May the peoples praise you, God;
    may all the peoples praise you.”

Pray for God’s ways to be known in some people in your life.

Verse 4-5 “May the nations be glad and sing for joy,
    for you rule the peoples with equity
    and guide the nations of the earth. 

May the peoples praise you, God;
    may all the peoples praise you.”

Pray for a specific nation or group of people to know Him, and praise Him.

Verse 6-7 “The land yields its harvest;

    God, our God, blesses us.
 May God bless us still,
    so that all the ends of the earth will fear him.”

Pray for God to use you, or ways for Him to use you in the lives of others. Take this time to pray for specific people that you are being intentional with.
