Ideas to help you start praying for the British Royal Family
Sometimes it hard to know where to start praying for one large family. The following ideas are to help you start the process. Perhaps you are more interested in one area, start there. Ask the Lord to use things to provoke you to prayer. Perhaps write down ideas that come to you when you think about that aspect. Then start to pray for one or more members of the Royal Family with this aspect in mind.
Eg. You’ve just watched Wimbledon and seen the Duchess of Cambridge as the Patron. Think about how she prepares to go, who she’ll meet and the conversations she’ll have. Consider what it’s like to always have a camera pointing at you.
And then PRAY…
This is definitely not an exhaustive list, just one to help you get started.
