    I just finished a 2,500 mile trip. Something I regularly do is to pray for each and every church that I pass on such trips. If God in His providence has me passing a church, then surely it is important to pray for that congregation.

    The next time you pass a church, if this practice comes to mind, lift them up before the throne. I certainly hope that others are praying for the brothers and sisters as they pass our church.

    I often do this in a lot of different circumstances.

    I often do this for different neighborhoods as well.

    Don't know about your area, but often times I'll be driving around different parts of my area in which I'll find homes on one side of the road that are very modest-looking, while on the other side of the road one will see $1 million + dwelling places.

    I pray :praying: for both sides of the road because ALL people--rich or poor--need Jesus.

    Thanks for sharing that, I had never considered it. What a wonderful thing to do. What do you pray when you pass by a Kingdom Hall or LDS church?

    Seizing Every Moment for Prayer by Cotton Mather

    Generally, for such places, I pray for the failure of heresy; the mercy and grace of our Lord; the conversion of the lost; the intercession by the local saints; the victory of the gospel; and the glory of God in all respects. At least, as best as I remember.

    I started this practice after reading something in the diary of Cotton Mather (1684):
