KINGDOM PRAYERS FOR THE WEEK OF AUGUST 8, 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 members would be good and do good in their workplaces this week.
SUNDAY’S SCRIPTURE: Ephesians 2:13-16: “But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. For he himself is our peace, who has made us both one and has broken down in his flesh the dividing wall of hostility by abolishing the law of commandments expressed in ordinances, that he might create in himself one new man in place of the two, so making peace, and might reconcile us both to God in one body through the cross, thereby killing the hostility.”
FMC TEAM VALUES: 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.
OUTREACH:The Center: For God to continue to accomplish His purposes in and through this ministry in Midland. For the Center Board – that they would continue to humbly and prayerfully seek God’s face and His will and that they would align their own hearts/wills accordingly; that they would be united in their decisions and leadership.
PILLAR: Pillar 7. Make Disciples (disciple-maker/mentor/developer) Pray for those who attend FMC and that we would promote the establishment of mentorship relationships: everyone mentors both up and down across the church.
SCRIPTURE: 2 Timothy 4:2 – “Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction.”
