U2 Prayer Team

“I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone.” 1 Timothy 2:1


Most of us have been blessed by U2’s music and many have likened a U2 concert to a worship service. In light of the upcoming album release and world tour, I am asking that those so called join me in praying for the band daily, from now until the conclusion of the world tour.

If you wish to join in prayer and have suggestions for specific prayers for the band, please post them here.

In His service,
NBCrusader

Great idea! How about safe travel, maintaining their health and singing voices, strength to resist temptation on the road...

nbcrusader, I have no complaint with your suggestion, but I have a feeling that U2 would tell us that they are MORE THAN BLESSED and probably would encourage us to use our prayers and good efforts for those less fortunate than them.

I think thoughts of Love and Blessings and Thankgiving EVERYDAY for the four of them, then I go out and find positive ways to put my feelings for U2 into good practice by practicing random acts of kindness and volunteering for some of the same organizations that Bono and U2 are associated with.

Pray for U2, but PLEASE work for Peace and Justice in our world! I'm sure that's what U2 would ask of us.

IT'S NOT WHAT YOU'RE DREAMING. IT'S WHAT YOU'RE GONNA DO....

Pray that the band not be disappointed by the leak of the new album.

Pray that the Spirit work through the music and lyrics to begin touching the heart of the listeners.

Pray for the souls of those who downloaded the upcoming CD and who will decide not to buy it.

Thou shalt not steal....

Forgive them, Bono - they gave into temptation. May they find a way to make amends.

Wow NBCrusader, awesome thread idea! Pray that the band's true message continues to reach new people and be a positive influence in their lives. Pray for safety in travelling and for their families while they're away. Pray for DATA and that doors continue to open, as well as hearts, while the band tours.

God bless you guys!!

Hey naxos! Welcome to the forum. I decided to merge your thread with an existing one because I think that they cover pretty much the same topic.

Continue discussing...and praying, of course.

just wanted to say that its a pleasure and a blessing to find out that there are others out there praying for the fellows in the band and their families....for their safety when travelling, for them to be a witness to others with their lyrics etc...you've all said it so well.

I also would pray that as they continue to be witnesses to what it means to be a believer, that they would be safe from attacks of the enemy. A friend once said, that all christians are the Enemy's enemy.

As I am new here as of this very minute...if anyone can point me to any other forums, links, fellowships of like minded people that would be worth taking a read/look at, I'd truly appreciate the help.

thanks.

I am a Christian, but I do hope that those who are openly expressing attitudes that are a bit divisive will understand that U2 has never condemned any spiritual belief system (Bono has actually stated that he has read the Koran) so it behooves those of us who are Christian to post our thoughts about U2 AND THE SPIRITUAL CONTENT OF THEIR LIVES/LYRICS in a way that is not offensive or ostracizing to U2 fans/followers who may be Jewish, Muslim, Sikh, Buddhist, Jain or of any other spiritual persuasion.

If U2 has gone out of their way to be accepting of others' differences, including religious differences, what makes us think that we shouldn't be?

We're ONE - but we're not the same. WE GET TO CARRY EACH OTHER.

Please remember that when posting in THE GOAL IS SOUL....
