In this level you already pray and cover the work of Self & Family, Church, Expanded Circle intercession. These levels gave you enough insight and experience in intercessory work. You might feel that God is calling you for more. Interceding for many needs of your city or town, perhaps even your nation (country) may be your next step or level.
At this level you might already have a small team, which can consist of two or more people. Adding a partner can allow you to bring serious petitions for your city. At this level, it is important to have guidance of the Holy Spirit. God will equip and teach you Himself. Be prepared to fast, because interceding always leads to fasting.
City intercessory is a full time job and should be taken seriously. The joy and rewards are huge and so is the opposition. Feel free to take upon yourself only what you can handle. The bigger and stronger the team the more serious intercession can be done for your city.
What to pray for: revival, local government, leadership, neighborhoods, weather, peace, guidance, stores, safety, churches, schools, nursing homes, hospitals, salvation of souls, against principalities: abortion, human/sex trafficking, pornography, oppression of women or other group, homosexuality, drunkenness, etc.
“Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings ad all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.” (1 Tim. 2:1-4, NKJV)
Note: Never underestimate the power of two. The team of two with persistence, well planned and organized petitions and patience, can do wonders for any town and even country. If a partner can’t be found, pray on the level you can handle.
Please share with others for advancement of God’s Kingdom and glory of Jesus.
