1. We followers of Jesus Christ emphasize that Christ died on the cross to pay for our sins. But we sometimes forget that he also rose again on the third day – to live in and through us. We are not supposed to live our Christian lives by our own strength. Thank God, Christ is now living in us. (Galatians 2:20)
2. God offers his followers the power to fight against our own flesh and its desires – and to win the battle. If we lack the strength to fight this war, it is actually our own fault. God is never to be blamed! Let’s pray today that the Lord will enable us to trust him for his blessings and strength so that he can have his way in our lives. (1 Timothy 6:12)
3. In his wisdom, King Solomon said: “A hot-tempered man stirs up dissension, but a patient man calms a quarrel” (Proverbs 15:18). Pray that God will help us all to live our lives according to this wisdom – bringing peace whenever we are in contact with other people.
4. We are easily tempted to invest time and energy debating various matters that are of little importance, at least from an eternal perspective. Pray that we will have the ability to follow Paul’s guidance and avoid foolish controversies. (Titus 3:9)
5. Little children behave as if they are the center of the world. The only thing that matters is their own well-being. They take no notice of the needs of other people. Unfortunately, some grown-ups keep the same mindset. Pray that God will equip and enable us to love our neighbor as ourselves. (Matthew 22:39)
6. The Bible says love and “keep no record of wrongs.” Pray that husbands will start this new year with a heart of forgiveness toward their wives and family members. (1 Corinthians 13:4)
7. Job said, “I have made a covenant with my eyes not to look lustfully at a young woman.” Pray that God will encourage husbands who have fallen in this area to admit their sin, to ask the Lord’s forgiveness and help to overcome temptation. (Proverbs 24:16)
8. Pray for God to move in the hearts of men to allow him to develop their own character and to take the lead in training their children in the ways of the Lord. (Proverbs 22:6)
9. Many men had poor role models of how a Christian husband acts. Pray that the Lord will provide godly mentors for them and some type of training in marriage relations. (Ephesians 5:25)
10. Post divorce relationships can be very difficult because of the hurts involved. Pray that God will empower divorced husbands to surrender to the Lord and to apply the fruit of the Spirit when interacting with their ex-wives and other family members. (Galatians 5:22-23)
11. Living in fellowship with God gives us confidence to claim his promises. The Lord declares, “Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known My name. He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him” (Psalms 91:14,15).
12. We need to pray that men in leadership positions will promote social justice. “Is this not the fast that I have chosen: to loose the bonds of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, to let the oppressed go free, and that you break every yoke? … Then you shall call, and the LORD will answer; you shall cry, and He will say, ‘Here I am'” (Isaiah 58:6, 9).
13. When we ask help of people, they want more information about the situation. However, God knows all things: The Lord Jesus instructs, “Therefore do not be like them [pagans]. For your Father knows the things you have need of before you ask Him” (Matthew 6:8). Let’s therefore pray in humble trust.
14. Samuel is a famous example of a godly, praying man. We teach the value of prayer by our example: “Moreover, as for me, far be it from me that I should sin against the LORD in ceasing to pray for you; but I will teach you the good and the right way” (1 Samuel 12:23).
15. Belief in God’s almighty power gives us confidence in our intercession. The prophet Jeremiah was reassured by this direct revelation: “Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh. Is there anything too hard for Me?” (Jeremiah 32:27).
16. Dear God, you alone are holy. It is the essence of your being. Even the Lord Jesus called you “Holy Father” (John 17:11). Oh, Lord God, cause me to stand in awe of your holiness. May I always reverence and embrace you as my loving and holy Father. Holy, holy, holy are you, Lord God Almighty! (Hosea 11:9)
17. Heavenly Father, you alone are righteous. That is why you are the only one who can do the right thing. Lord Jesus, you manifested this righteousness in all you said and did. I admit that sometimes I attempt to establish my own righteousness. But now I give up trying to become righteous. I now submit to you so that you might express your righteousness through me. (Romans 10:4)
18. Lord Jesus, thank you for taking my place on the cross. You made the great exchange! You became what I was – sin – in order that I might become what you are – righteousness. Therefore, I refuse to try to be self-righteous, because only the righteousness in Christ counts. I now trust you to live your righteous life through me. (2 Corinthians 5:21)
19. Oh, Lord, I rejoice in the transforming work of your death, burial and resurrection! As a result I have now been changed from a sinner into a saint. Thank you for sanctifying me! Jesus Christ is my sanctification, my holiness, my all. I love you, Lord! (Hebrews 10:10, 14)
20. Almighty God, thank you for creating me new in Christ. You are my righteousness and holiness. I refuse any lie to the contrary. I accept the truth about my new self in Christ. Therefore, by faith, I put on the new life of the person I am in Christ. Since I bear your image, I trust you to manifest your likeness through me. (Ephesians 4:24, 25a)
21. Father, we pray today for men to find their identity not in career, material possessions or status but rather in their relationship with Christ and a daily pursuit of fellowship with you. (Colossians 2:10)
prayer points for breakthrough
22. Lord Jesus, we ask that you help men understand what it means to be “crucified with Christ,” not living unto themselves but unto you who saved us and in whom we are identified. (2 Corinthians 5:15)
23. Holy Spirit, open our eyes to the reality of your abiding presence in our lives so that Christ may live through us. Help us to die to our flesh and allow your Spirit to manifest Jesus in and through us. (1 Corinthians 6:19)
24. Abba, we ask that men might more fully enjoy what it means to be identified as your beloved child, with you as our beloved daddy. (Romans 8:15)
25. Lord Jesus, help men to live in the reality of being your family member. That makes us brothers who share the same spiritual DNA and live in the awareness of being not only a child of Abba but also a brother of Yeshua. (Hebrews 2:11)
26. The Bible challenges us to present our bodies as living sacrifices (Romans 12:1). Such a demand goes against our sense of self-preservation. But as we agree and surrender our natural ego that has been programmed by the world and the flesh, we learn to obey God. This way we make room for the glorious life of Christ in us. Meditate on Luke 9:23-24and be ready to follow the master’s call as his disciple.
27. The Bible also calls us to be transformed through the renewing of our minds (Romans 12:2). Our selective memory is limited by our natural, human predicament, and we easily become products of our environment. 1Corinthians 2:14 states that we are all born spiritually dead and therefore don’t understand the things of God. Pray for the Spirit of God to illuminate your mind and to give you the will to choose God’s ways.
28. The Bible instructs us to think about ourselves with sound judgment (Romans 12:3). We easily covet the better or higher position or condition of others. But it is God who allotted to each of us specific gifts and talents so that we can serve him in dependent faith. Therefore, pray to know yourself and to be ready to contribute to the well-being of others with your gifts.
29. God created us for relationship with him and each other. Because of sin, relationships are broken. But in Christ we can experience complete restoration. The Bible says that as followers of Christ, we are one body (Romans 12:4-5). Therefore, pray to recognize the functions of others and to be sensitive and ready to play your part as a healthy member of the body of Christ.
30. “[T]he rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them. … But whoever wishes to become great among you shall be your servant” (Mark 10:42-43). This is the message of the project Champions Arise. Pray that many men will be impacted through the CA prayer calendar (13 languages), the CA programs and discipleship groups.
31. Pray for the Lord to awaken Christian men to assume spiritual leadership in their relationships. Pray also for Christian leaders to be made aware of the resources that Champions Arise offers for the training of Christian men as agents of peace and healing in their marriages and in their families and as intercessors for those in authority (1Timothy 2:1-3).
effective prayer points
1. Dear God, there is so much confusion and chaos all around me. I need some peace and quiet. You promised perfect peace if I would keep my focus on you rather than the circumstances. Therefore, I put my trust in you because you alone have the strength to solve my problems. Thank you for keeping me in perfect peace! (Isaiah 26:3-4).
2. Oh Lord, sometimes I get frustrated, irritated and very angry. But then I realize that these are only fleshly feelings and not solutions to anything. Therefore, I reject all these fleshly human responses. Lord Jesus Christ, I yield myself to you. Cause me to respond correctly in true righteousness so that I can do the right thing (James 1:20).
3. Dear Lord, when I become angry, motivate me to deal with it immediately. Prompt me to go to whomever I am angry with and resolve my differences. Grant me the grace to humble myself, to forgive and to forget. Protect me from giving place to the devil by harboring unforgiveness and becoming bitter. Thank you for the grace of forgiveness (Ephesians 5:26-27).
4. Heavenly Father, I recognize that the only way for my Christian faith to be lived out is for Christ to live through me. Show me what you have given me in Christ. Every good thing that I need for living is within me in the person of Christ. When I face a need in my life, cause me to acknowledge that your life in me is the source and supply of that need (Philemon 1:6).
5. Lord Jesus, you said if I would believe, I would see the glory of God. Therefore, I am going to stop walking by sight and start walking by faith. I trust you with my life – all that I am and all that I have. Live your life in me and be glorified through me. Thank you, Lord, for causing my faith to become anchored in Christ alone (Hebrews 6:9).
6. The Bible says: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him and he shall direct your paths.” Pray that you will experience this in your own life (Proverbs 3:5-6).
7. As followers of Christ we hate any kind of injustice, and God certainly hates it even more than we do. Pray that God will bless our efforts as we fight against different kinds of injustice (Isaiah 61:8).
8. Jesus demonstrated true leadership when he gave his life for us. Thank him for that, and pray that he will give you the ability to develop the same kind of character, grounded in God (1 Timothy 1:16).
9. Lord, help me to set a higher goal for my life than personal satisfaction. Help me to surrender myself to you, with all my belongings, so that I might live my life to your glory and for the salvation of other people (Ephesians 4:1).
10. The main characteristic of a spiritual man is likeness to Jesus. Character formation is God’s purpose in saving us, to make us like his Son, Jesus (Romans 8:29). Lord, help us to be more intentional about pursuing you and having our character formed into your likeness on a practical, everyday level (Galatians 4:19).
11. Life presents many distractions that compete for our attention in spiritual pursuits (Luke 10:41). Lord, may we prioritize our times with you in worship, sitting at your feet and listening to your word, which is “the better part” (Luke 10:42).
12. When we have a growing fascination for things other than Jesus, we become carnal and unspiritual (1 Corinthians 3:3). Lord, may our love for you grow more and more each day, making you our one concentrated passion weaving throughout everything else (Matthew 6:33).
13. Often, we make our relationship with the Lord a means to our own egotistical gratification, pursuing things such as usefulness, ministry success and self-promotion. Oh Lord, deliver us from “religious pride” and other subtle but self-centered motives (Acts 8:18).
14. Nothing is more important for a Christian man than his consistent walk of faith with Jesus. Lord, enable us to stay riveted and strong in this overarching need to honor you and walk with you in every detail of our day. For your glory, may it be said of us that we “walk with God” (Genesis 5:24).
15. When we intercede for listeners of TWR programs, we partner with God, who loved the world so much that he gave his Son. “The Lord is not slack concerning His promise [of the Second Coming of Christ], as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance” (2 Peter 3:9).
16. “And the Spirit and the bride say, ‘Come!’ And let him who hears say, ‘Come!’ And let him who thirsts come. Whoever desires, let him take the water of life freely” (Revelation 22:17). We pray for listeners to accept God’s gracious invitation. To become champions, men must enlist for the spiritual adventure of salvation and service.
17. Even if your family has rejected you, know that God accepts you. Jesus declared, “All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out. … This is the will of the Father who sent Me, that of all He has given Me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up at the last day” (John 6:37, 39).
18. So often, people let us down by not keeping their promises, but God is faithful. We, like the apostle Paul, can trust God to protect and guide us throughout life. “For I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able to keep what I have committed to Him until that Day” (2 Timothy 1:12).
19. God satisfies the longing of our soul. Men often get into trouble because they substitute the wrong things for this hunger. Pray for men to find their satisfaction in God and his Word alone (Psalm 107:9).
20. God is “Jehovah Rapha,” our healer. He is the restorer of a man’s soul. Pray for the healing balm of God’s perfect love and Word to touch the brokenness of men’s hearts (Jeremiah 17:14).
21. God’s Word is the ultimate source of wisdom. Ask God to bless men with a heart for searching the Bible to receive the insight needed to lead their homes, work and so much more (James 1:5).
22. God’s Spirit will unite a man’s heart to his heavenly Father. A man’s oneness with God will lead his pursuit of oneness with his wife and children. God’s ways will become his ways. Pray for men to be faithful to God and God’s Word, thereby remaining faithful to their families (1 Corinthians 6:17).
23. You are a sinner who deserves eternal judgment. But praise God, he sent Jesus to save you! Give thanks today that Jesus gave his life so that you shall live forever with him (John 11:25).
24. God’s Spirit dwells inside anyone who believes in Jesus as his savior. Pray that the Lord’s power will transform you into his image so that others will see glimpses of Jesus when they are around you (Ephesians 3:20).
25. Peter walked on water – but only when he kept his eyes focused on Jesus. As soon as he took an anxious look at the waves, he started to sink. Pray that the Lord will help you to keep your eyes fixed on Jesus, no matter what happens around you (Hebrews 12:2).
26. When Moses came down from the mountain with the tablets of the testimony, his face was shining (Exodus 34:29-30). When you spend time with Jesus, he will become visible in your life (1 Corinthians 1:9).
27. Lonnie Berger, author and president of Every Man A Warrior, has accepted the position of TWR global director of men’s ministry. Pray for Lonnie to have wisdom from God to develop the TWR Men’s Ministry to impact the lives of men all over the world (James 1:5).

28. Men everywhere need training to become the men, the husbands and the fathers that God wants them to be. “Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training” (1 Corinthians 9:25). Pray for men everywhere to desire the spiritual training they need to grow into all that God would have them be.
29. “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all you soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment” (Matthew 22:37-38). Pray that the ministry of TWR would help men and women everywhere know how to have a deeper and growing love relationship with God.
30. “You are in error because you do not know the Scripture …” (Matthew 22:29). The people of the world are looking for answers to the questions and challenges of life that they face every day. Pray that a growing number of people around the world would find these answers as they listen to the Bible teaching presented on TWR each day. open heaven for today
31. Dear God, sometimes I have felt that I should not bother you with my requests. But now I realize that you want me to bring my requests to you. I trust you to remove my fears and doubts. Grant me the grace to simply believe you without any doubts or reservations. Lord, I believe that you are in me and that you will take care of me! (Mark 5:35-36).
