Prayer Focus: Halloween, the Day of the Dead and Reformation Day
Over the next 48 hours millions of professing Christians will celebrate Halloween and the Day of the Dead. Pagan customs and superstitions abound as people pray for their deceased relatives and friends.
In the midst of spiritual darkness, some Christians will honor Reformation Day – the anniversary of Martin Luther protesting indulgences and church sins by posting a letter to a church door.
The Huffington Post, no friend of conservative Christianity, reports, “Studies have shown that Halloween actually makes kids act more evil.”
* Pray for children not to be harmed while trick-or-treating.
* Pray for the Holy Spirit to bring conviction to “Christians” that participate in pagan customs.
* Pray for the Gospel to reach the hearts of people attending church harvest festivals, hell houses, and various evangelical outreaches.
* Pray for a reformation in Christianity so that church attendees will rediscover sound doctrine, and become disciple makers.
