KINGDOM PRAYERS FOR THE WEEK OF FEBRUARY 6, 2022
Mission: Take our next steps toward Christ, together!
Pray that everything we do would be done to accomplish this! Pray for the faith to follow the Spirit’s lead, keeping in step with Him each day, personally and corporately.
End state: Throughout the Tri-State Region & Beyond… the Glory of God is honored, intimacy with Jesus is treasured, the Holy Spirit’s fruit ripens in believers’ lives, the holiness of God is revered, the goodness of God is relished, the truth of God is pursued, the faithfulness of God is trusted, the promises of God are believed, the grace of God is cherished, the wrath of God is feared, the commandments of God are obeyed, the lost are found, repentance and gratitude flow, praise and prayer erupt, lives and communities are transformed, love and joy fills hearts, freedom and forgiveness overwhelm, barriers are broken down, the hungry are fed, marriages are restored, families are reunited, and prodigals come home!
Pray that we would see these things come to pass in ever-increasing ways! Pray that we would celebrate each and every moment we see this happening in one another’s lives!
FMC Team Values: Values describe how we will behave as we accomplish our vision, mission, strategy, and end state. Our values are not so much about getting into the endzone, but rather more about HOW we score. Without stating them, the Tri-State Region and FMC should be able to recognize these values by how we behave. FMC has ten team values – we’ll share one each week, simply cycling through them as we pray together.
Pray that no matter who or where or when, that these values would begin to permeate who we are and how we live and serve and love together!
Value 2: Sharpen the axe
Abraham Lincoln said, “Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four hours sharpening the axe.” Achieving our vision is a massive undertaking, and to see it realized, we must become effective tools for God’s Kingdom. We must maintain our health and wellness spiritually, emotionally, physically, intellectually, and relationally. We must also constantly be learning and growing to increase our effectiveness over time.
KEY WORDS: HEALTH, GROWTH, FITNESS
Student ministry (babies through 18)
Pray that over the next 3 to 5 years, God grows a united student ministry all across Beaver County, even as we use the more immediate Beaver area as our starting point. Pray for Wes and Kristin Schools as they lead that ministry effort. Pray for Courtney Bowers as she continues to serve as our Children’s Ministry Director here at church. Pray that churches would unite around the Kingdom and a mutual desire to see the next generations reached for Christ. Pray that God would raise up adults who have a love for students of all ages and a desire to be poured out for the Gospel on their behalf. Pray that God would raise up Christ-following students who will love their fellow class- and teammates, who will pray for them and share God’s Word and love with them.
The Growth of Individual LET’S GO Expressions
That God would place within every person who calls FMC “home” the desire to be in the game! That each one would seek to grow in every gift, giving themselves fully to learning and honing these 12 pillars as they would any other skill or ability. That God would give us creative ideas to be the church outside of our four walls and that we would all rally around one another, encouraging, praying for and spurring one another on toward love and good deeds, for the good of all those around us and for the glory of God’s great name!
