KINGDOM PRAYERS FOR THE WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 19, 2022
FMC PRAYER: Pray that God would be glorified in all things and that the name of Christ is exalted.
“To this end also we pray for you always, that our God will count you worthy of your calling, and fulfill every desire for goodness and the work of faith with power, so that the name of our Lord Jesus will be glorified in you, and you in Him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.” (2 Thessalonians 1:11-12)
SUNDAY’S SCRIPTURE: Romans 12:1-2 “I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.”
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: Pray for Marcy Helm and the entire staff – that they would overflow with the love of Christ as they care for and teach so many preschoolers and interact with their families. Pray that health would be fortified, not just in them, but in the children. Pray 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 1: Teach Truth (teacher/preacher/educator) FMC is committed to taking our next steps towards Christ together through Scripture-based teaching.
SCRIPTURE: “And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. And awe came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were being done through the apostles. And all who believed were together and had all things in common. And they were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all, as any had need. And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts, praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved.” (Acts 2:42-47)
