Kairos – Prayer Vigil – How To Pray

Things to pray for on 72-hour Prayer Vigil during a Kairos Weekend

 

26 In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. 27 And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God.  28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who[a] have been called according to his purpose.

Romans 8:26-28New International Version (NIV)
