~Father, we declare that our city is rejoicing because it is going well with the uncompromisingly righteous. By the blessing of the influence of the UPRIGHT,
we call our city EXALTED. Bless the upright people, leaders and businesses in our region. (Prov. 11:10-11) �~Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. (Phil. 2:9-11)

10 min Intercession for those in Authority 
~Pray for our new governor, our senators, and our representatives. Pray that our new state government would understand what is just and right and be given wisdom to administer in a godly way. (Prov 2:9-10)
~Pray for the law enforcement officials in our county: the Sheriff and his deputies, the Prosecutor and his staff, the Judges (to render just and right decisions), and the County Commissioners. Pray for wisdom to govern in their respective areas and safety for them and their families.

5 min Personal and Local Petitions

~Pray that our body heeds the call for a step up in prayer and does what is necessary to experience the fullness of God in their lives.
~Pray for the will of God to be accomplished at the Renew Conference. Pray for strength and wisdom for the organizers, and that those attending will be refreshed.

10 min Pray for the greater church in Muskegon. Some suggestions:
~That the church would be loud, bold, and strong concerning Biblical truth in this year
~That the church would, “see” and “seize” opportunities in this coming year to shape and change the culture of our county. 
~That churches would sense their assignment for the year and move forward in God. 
~That the church would continue to grow in Biblical unity more and more in this coming year, across, racial, social, and denominational lines. 
~That pastors and shepherds would have a fresh revelation of their calling to serve God’s people and that God’s people would give proper biblical honor to them. 
~That Believer’s in Muskegon County would be bold as a lion in this new year and go into the harvest field and reach the lost. (Prov. 29:1, Matt. 9:37-38)
~Pray concerning the Casino proposed in Fruitport. A Pastor is meeting with the Chief about how little they are proposing to help with gambling and the fallout. He believes, along with other Pastors, that this stand against the casino is causing an attack against their families in the Spirit realm. Pray the protection of God around them.
