Jerram Barrs, Professor at Covenant Theological Seminary, offers some great thoughts regarding the matter of where to begin with prayer. Here is a quote from his work "The Heart of Evangelism."
Recognizing our dependence on The Lord to bring people to faith in Christ, what should be the focus of our prayers? God has placed each of us in a "family" of those we love and those who love us--both actual family members and also the "family" of our close friends, the people whose lives have become closely intertwined with ours. Our first and perfectly appropriate desire will be to pray for these people whom we already love.
