Biblical prayer

God commands prayer of His people (Luke 18:1; Ephesians 6:18; Colossians 4:2; I Thessalonians 5:17), and provides His Son and Spirit for intercession (Romans 8:26, 34; Heb 7:25).

Some things for which we should pray (not intended to be exhaustive):

Pray for boldness to proclaim the word of God (Acts 4:29; Eph. 6:18-20).
Pray for the salvation of Israel (Romans 10:1). 
Pray for filling with the knowledge of God's will (Col. 1:9).
Pray for open doors to speak the gospel (Col. 4:3; 2 Thess. 3:1).
