KINGDOM PRAYERS FOR THE WEEK OF OCTOBER 02, 2022
FMC PRAYER: Pray that the body of Christ would faithfully show love to a hurting world in His Name.
“Let all that you do be done in love.” (1 Corinthians 16:14)
“By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.” (John 13:35)
Father, help us to keep our eyes on you, so that we can follow your promptings and respond to your call. Help us to see when another soul around us needs to be encouraged. Help us to be faithful to carry one another’s burdens, remembering that we’re all in this life together.
SUNDAY’S SCRIPTURE: Ephesians 3:16-17a “that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith…”
FMC TEAM VALUES: Value 10 – Play Motion Offense: In basketball, motion offense is a fluid approach where the players are always moving and always aware of where each other are. It only works if the team is in tune maintaining complete awareness. We want our team to be anticipating each other’s moves and needs even before they happen. We will fight against silos and work to complement what other team members are doing.
OUTREACH: Mt. Calvary Chapel in Midland – Pray for our brothers and sisters in Midland as they seek to serve their community in Christ-exalting ways. Pray for Roger Singleton as he leads them. Pray that God would give us opportunities to partner with them in the Gospel. Pray that God would use them (and us!) mightily – that His Kingdom would come and His will be done in and through them!
PILLAR: Pillar 2: Promote Christian Fellowship (fellowship/interpersonal/engaging/relational/communion) FMC ensures Christ is at the center of all communal engagements; we promote a fellowship of believers in Christ
APPLICATION: Practice: Find someone in your life that is difficult to love and pray for them every day this week. If/when the opportunity arises, humbly find a way to serve him or her.
