One of the challenges faced by pastors is the organization of public prayer. I have long used a document for myself, Regular Items for Thanksgiving and Intercessory Prayer. This document has all the regular things which should be remembered in public prayer on the Lord’s Day — at least the ones I could think of (with the help of my elders). They are organized into eight groups. The idea is to pray through one group each Lord’s Day. I typically do this in the second prayer in the PM service. Using a system like this helps prevent lengthy “around the world” prayers, as well as the neglect of certain matters. I’m sharing it as a MS Word file so other pastors can modify it for their own purposes.
