KINGDOM PRAYERS FOR THE WEEK OF OCTOBER 31, 2022
FMC PRAYER: Lord, help me worship you with an undistracted heart. Father, this morning—and all of history—is about you. Please help me worship you with an undistracted heart. You know how my mind wanders to my upcoming week, present worries, and thoughts of others and other things. Help me put those thoughts away and focus on you and your glory. May your Spirit guide my heart, soul, mind, and strength to exalt your Holy Name in my singing, listening to Your Word, and interacting with your people.
SUNDAY’S SCRIPTURE: Ephesians 3:19b “that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.”
FMC TEAM VALUES: Value 1 – Kneel before we run: This value is listed first intentionally. Everything we do must begin from a place of desperation for and dependence on God. We have a race to run, but we must kneel in submission and devotion to God before we begin. Often ministry can become a distraction from our personal walk with the Lord. Soon we’ve sacrificed intimacy for productivity. Instead, our number one priority is to begin everything with prayer and submission flowing from a genuine heart for God.
KEY WORDS: DEPENDENCE, PRAYER, WORSHIP
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 7 – Make Disciples (disciple-maker/mentor/developer) Pray for opportunities in your every day life to model the likeness of Christ in your actions, words, responses, and countenance.
APPLICATION: Practice: Find someone who needs a friend/relationship with Christ and invest your time and energy into them. Communicate with them regularly, pray for them daily, and meet with them joyfully.
