My nephew sent me a link to an amazing website with visual panoramas of amazing places on earth. You can see an aerial view of the pyramids, volcanos, Antarctica, Niagara Falls, Iguasu Falls, and major cities all over the world. The 360º views are astounding.

The photo above of Manhattan shows such great detail!

As I stared at the picture for awhile, I was moved to pray for the city! I realized that these photos are great tools for focused prayer.
I want to encourage you to use these photos to pray for the great cities of our world.

Pray to God and ask Him to show compassion as He did on the great city of Nineveh (Jonah 4:11).

Here are some links to great cities of our world:


Saint Petersburg


Los Angeles

Dubai City



Hong Kong

Las Vegas

Cape Town








I’ve been to half of these cities listed and I’m amazed as I look at the panorama pictures. I hope as you look at each of them you will be drawn to pray for these cities.

  • Pray for God’s blessing on the people who live there.
  • Pray for the gospel message to penetrate the hearts of the people.
  • Pray for the Church to be emerge in both public and private places.
  • Pray for disciples who make disciples who make disciples.

Today’s Missional Challenge

Consider how you can use these images (and others like them) to focus your prayers for the people of all nations in the great cities of our world!
