KINGDOM PRAYERS FOR THE WEEK OF MAY 30, 2022
Let this be a guide as your pray throughout the week – do not simply read through this and agree, but intentionally reflect on how these things can/will reveal Christ’s Kingdom more and more, here on earth.
SCRIPTURE: Ephesians 1:13-14
“In him you also, when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and believed in him, were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until we acquire possession of it, to the praise of his glory.”
PRAYER: That the church’s songs would teach members to biblically confess, lament, and praise.
VALUE: 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. KEY WORDS: COMMUNICATION, HONOR, LOYALTY, UNITY
PILLAR: Pillar 8. Make Godly Decisions (wisdom/knowledge/discernment/counselor/advisor)
FMC has a healthy fear of the Lord, the first step to wisdom & knowledge; it’s a call to submit to God in humility
SCRIPTURE: Proverbs 1:7
“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction.”
