50 People to Pray for when You’re in the Kitchen

Think about the amount of time you spend in the kitchen every day. Breakfast. Lunch. Dinner. That’s about 3 times a day. And 90 times a month. 1,095 times a year. Not to mention the times you whip up a quick snack – or wash dishes. It’s time that adds up.

Time that can be used to foster fellowship and restoration.

Time that can be spent in thought, in meditation, in prayer.

Here’s a list of 50 people that you can pray for when you’re in the kitchen. You don’t have to pray for them all at once but if someone from this list comes to mind when you’re buttering your toast this morning — remember them in prayer.

When you’re in the kitchen who comes to your mind the most? Pray for them. Does your accountant need some prayers as they ramp up for tax season? What about saying a prayer for the person who just plowed your road or for your doctor who gave your child a checkup last week? Does the teen tossing pizzas at your local ‘pie’ shop need some encouragement? Spend some time praying for those around you – that God brings the restoration and healing into our communities we all so desperately need.

So, who will you pray for today?
