KINGDOM PRAYERS FOR THE WEEK OF APRIL 10, 2023
FMC PRAYER: Lord, You know the multitude of sins I have committed in my life – help me to hate my sin more and more as I contemplate what Christ has done to forgive me and free me from sin’s death grip. Open the eyes of my heart to see the glorious hope I have in Christ and Your love for all of the saints.
SUNDAY’S SCRIPTURE: Luke 23+24
FMC TEAM VALUES: Value 8 – Protect this House: This speaks to communication and relationship. It’s all about unity and commitment to Christ. Those are the things that protect us from the enemy. It’s easy to dismiss negative comments that we think or hear others speak. Instead, let us stop and say, “No! That is dangerous and cannot continue.” We will never allow triangulation, where we talk to a third party about an issue we are having with someone. Instead, we will always go to that person individually first. Moreover, we will hold each other accountable to do the same.
OUTREACH: Four Mile Preschool + Childcare: Pray for Marcy Helm, Rick Bixler, and the entire staff – that they would overflow with the love of Christ as they care for and teach so many children and interact with their families. Pray that health would be fortified and that there would be opportunities to engage each family in meaningful ways in order that they might come to know the love and grace of God personally.
PILLAR: Pillar 12: Manage Well (planner/administrator/organizer) FMC protects against time inconsistency, good idea fairies, & the tyranny of uninformed & reactionary responses
MEDITATE: “That He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in the inner man, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; and that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up to all the fullness of God.” (Ephesians 3:16-19)
