Pray Anson Prayer Guide


April 1 – 30, 2022


We love our home! We love beautiful Anson County! We love the people that live and work here!  And we are called of God to pray for our friends, neighbors and co-workers!  Will you join us in praying for the spiritual and physical needs of this county and its people that we love so much? These are tough days and the people of Anson County need God’s blessings and our prayers more than ever! The Bible says, “I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men” (1 Timothy 2:1).


It is estimated that over half of the population of our county of 22,055 people are not a member of anyone’s church and therefore, most likely, lost and headed to hell because of their unwillingness to trust and accept the salvation that Christ offers through His death and resurrection.


That should break our hearts!  But what can we do?  Pray! We should pray with the confidence that God does not want any one of them to go to hell!  The Bible says, “The Lord … is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance” (2 Peter 3:9). God in His love sent Jesus to be the Savior of the world!  Let us be faithful to pray for the salvation of those that we love and who live with us Anson County! The guide below gives you some people and needs that you can pray for each day. Let’s cover our county in the month of April in prayer!


Thank you for praying for the physical and spiritual needs of our friends and neighbors in Anson County!


[P]raying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end

with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints…. (Ephesians 6:18)


Thank you for praying for the physical and spiritual needs of our friends and neighbors in Anson County!
