We see these principles applied in the book of Acts. As we consider the people in our zone of influence, we think about what they will need (the things that only God can provide) in their lives. We pray for God's greatness and love in the lives of these people (Chr. 16). We pray for His ability and willingness to draw lost people to Himself and save them (Mk 9).

And we pray for multitudes to hear the Word of the Lord and for many thousands to come to faith in Jesus and follow him as disciples (Acts 16).
