KINGDOM PRAYERS FOR THE WEEK OF JULY 25, 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 giving would be faithful, as well as joyful, consistent, and sacrificial.
SUNDAY’S SCRIPTURE: Ephesians 2:8-10: “For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.”
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. Team values specifically apply to our pastors, elders, deacons, staff, leaders, volunteers, and employees. Pray that each of us be committed to lead in each of these regards and be accountable to them as they will ultimately define our culture. Without stating them, the Tri-State Region and FMC should be able to recognize these values by how we behave.
OUTREACH: 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!
PILLAR: Pillar 5. Lead Others (leader/shepherd/servant) Pray that our leaders will continuously pursue the development of their faith and that God would reveal true and honest hearts interested in furthering His kingdom through discipleship and mentoring.
SCRIPTURE: Luke 22:26, “But not so with you. Rather, let the greatest among you become as the youngest, and the leader as one who serves.”
