KINGDOM PRAYERS FOR THE WEEK OF JULY 18, 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.
FMC PRAYER: That hopes for political change would be outstretched by the hope of heaven.
SUNDAY’S SCRIPTURE: Ephesians 2:4-7: But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ – by grace you have been saved – and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.”
DESIRED 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, humility abounds, the lost are found, repentance and gratitude flow, praise and prayer erupt, lives and communities are transformed, love and joy fill hearts, freedom and forgiveness overwhelm, barriers are broken down, the hungry are fed, marriages are restored, families are reunited, and prodigals come home!
OUTREACH: Student ministry (babies through 18) Pray that over the next 3 to 5 years, God grows a united student ministry all across Beaver County. 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.
PILLAR: Pillar 4. Praise and Adore God (praise/expressive/joy) Pray that our hearts would be focused on praise and worship and not on ourselves or the distractions that pull our eyes from singing loudly and boldly to our amazing Father in heaven.
SCRIPTURE: Psalm 47:1-2, “Clap your hands, all peoples! Shout to God with loud songs of joy! For the Lord, the Most High, is to be feared, a great king over all the earth.”
