KINGDOM PRAYERS FOR THE WEEK OF DECEMBER 12, 2021
Mission: Helping people take their next steps toward Christ, together!
Pray that everything we do would be done to accomplish this! Pray for the faith to follow the Spirit’s lead, keeping in step with Him each day, personally and corporately.
End state: Throughout the Tri-State Region & Beyond… the Glory of God is honored, intimacy with Jesus is treasured, the Holy Spirit’s fruit ripens in believers’ lives, the holiness of God is revered, the goodness of God is relished, the truth of God is pursued, the faithfulness of God is trusted, the promises of God are believed, the grace of God is cherished, the wrath of God is feared, the commandments of God are obeyed, the lost are found, repentance and gratitude flow, praise and prayer erupt, lives and communities are transformed, love and joy fills hearts, freedom and forgiveness overwhelm, barriers are broken down, the hungry are fed, marriages are restored, families are reunited, and prodigals come home!
Pray that we would see these things come to pass in ever-increasing ways! Pray that we would celebrate each and every moment we see this happening in one another’s lives!
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. Without stating them, the Tri-State Region and FMC should be able to recognize these values by how we behave. FMC has ten team values – we’ll share one each week, simply cycling through them as we pray together.
Pray that no matter who or where or when, that these values would begin to permeate who we are and how we live and serve and love together!
Value 4: Embrace the hill
Runners often dread hills along their route and most view them as a place to slow down. But a healthy, well-trained runner sees the hill as an opportunity to pass people and actually take ground. We want our team to function in this way. We should expect all kinds of challenges and opposition as we strive to accomplish our God-given vision. When those times come, we will choose to have a joyful mindset that is motivated by challenge rather than dismayed by it.
KEY WORDS: GRIT, RESILIENCE, RESOURCEFULNESS
Humility that leads to Righteousness
This is the one I esteem: he who is humble and contrite in spirit, and trembles at my word. Isaiah 66:2
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled. Matthew 5:6
Pray that as we seek God’s glory in prayer that we would grow in ever-increasing humility, recognizing the extent of our sin and depravity and the lengths God has gone to rescue us, in order to give us eternal life and living hope! Pray that God would place in us His desires – that we would long for Him, His Kingdom, and His righteousness, more than we long for anything else. Pray that we would walk by faith, in grace and obedience to God’s Word in all we do and say.
Mentoring Up and Down
Pray that we would all recognize that we are to grow and learn and serve and become more like Jesus, together; that we would all seek to share what God has done in and for us with one another; that we would be willing to invest in one another’s growth in meaningful and fruitful and consistent ways; that no one would be too proud to admit that he/she doesn’t need others and that no one would believe the lie that he/she has nothing to offer.
